At just 10 years old, Flint, Michigan water activist Mari Copeny had to shut down a grown man for criticizing her about raising funds for local children affected by the environmental crisis to see Black Panther

When news of the Flint water crisis went national, a slew of activists and celebs rose up to help the residents get clean water while government officials shifted blame. One the most prominent people to rise up and become a voice for those enduring one of the worst environmental crises in America was 10-year-old Mari Copeny, also known as Little Miss Flint. 

For years now, her work as an activist has attracted the attention of President Barack Obama, made her a national figure and has inspired others to take an active role in their communities. She has recently taken part in the #BlackPantherChallenge to give area children an opportunity to see the highly anticipated film.  

However, one user, who seemed to have never seen Little Miss Flint or be familiar with her work, criticized her for fundraising for the screening because he believes that she should be focusing on the water crisis instead. He took it upon himself to school her. So she had to put this dude in his place. 

The commentator responded to Little Miss Flint's supporters and later apologized for his previous tweets.

Mari's GoFundMe campaign has raised $12, 262, surpassing its original $5,000 goal. So, all is good on her end and the kids she hopes to bring a little sunshine to.
