Greta Thunberg has responded to a decal that appears to depict her being sexually assaulted – saying it shows that environmentalists ‘are winning’.

The decal features the naked back of a woman. Hands are pulling her hair, which is in two braids, and the name ‘Greta’ is written across her lower back.

The logo of Alberta oilfield company X-Site Energy Services is underneath the drawing.


Thunberg took to Twitter to share her reaction to the image.

She tweeted: “They are starting to get more and more desperate… This shows that we’re winning.”


The image garnered mass attention after Alberta resident Michelle Narang called the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to report the decal as child pornography.

Narang’s attention was brought to the decal by a friend who works in the gas and oil industry, and said they saw an X-Site employee handing it out.

Narang told the Globe and Mail: “The visual is jarring,” Ms. Narang said Thursday. “It hurt. It hurt on so many levels.”

The RCMP has now concluded that the decal does not depict a non-consensual act, and is not child pornography.

X-Site Energy Services

According to reports, X-Site Energy Services has taken down its social media pages and website since the decal came to prominence.

Doug Sparrow, General Manager of X-Site, has denied the organization has anything to do with the image.

He told 660 News: “It’s not from X-Site or any employee, someone has done this. That’s all I know.”
