Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro mopped the floor with holier than thou Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio…
Haughty Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio had his oversized ego spanked by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro who had little tolerance for a sanctimonious lecture from a jet-setting celebrity and put the award-winning star and climate change cultist in his place with a blistering Twitter smackdown.
When the acclaimed 47-year-old who is best known for his starring roles in box office hits including “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and “Titanic” took to Twitter to virtue signal about deforestation in the Amazon rainforest, he likely didn’t expect being called out as a hypocrite by the Latin American leader.
Posting an animated map, DiCaprio tweeted to his 19.6 million followers, “How extensive is deforestation in Amazonia, one of the most important places on the planet for people & wildlife? According to this map from @mapbiomas, the region has faced an onslaught of illegal deforestation at the hands of extractive industry over the last 3 years,” also posting his missive in Brazil’s most widely spoken language, Portuguese.
