After DiCaprio Lectured Americans About Climate Change, His Activist Cred Gets Slayed with One Photo
Leonardo DiCaprio finally won an Oscar last weekend which gave him a few seconds to speak about climate change and other politically charged issues while accepting his award.
Here is what he had to say:
“Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our species...”
Well one MTV celebrity, Chet Cannon, had just one tweet that destroys DiCaprio's activist cred.
Take a look:
Four photos of Leo lounging on his massive yacht, including one with a large group of models hanging out on deck.
Is that yacht a hybrid? Probably not.
This is not Cannon's first attack on DiCaprio. After Leo's speech he also threw out this tweet:
DiCaprio has come under fire for not practicing what he preaches on other occasions.
He has been accused of flying in private jets, which can have 37 times the personal carbon emissions of commercial flights.
A Daily Mail article from 2014 laid it all out:
"DiCaprio took at least 20 trips across the nation and around the world this year alone – including numerous flights from New York to Los Angeles and back, a ski vacation to the French Alps, another vacation to the French Riviera, flights to London and Tokyo to promote his film 'Wolf of Wall Street,' two trips to Miami and trip to Brazil to watch the World Cup.”
The celebrated actor has not publicly commented on Cannon's criticism.
