Leonardo DiCaprio finally wins an Oscar for his portrayal of Hugh Glass in the Oscar winning film, The Revenant.
He has been up for an Oscar five times before but has famously lost all 5 times.
This year was the year for Leo and he now can happily claim one of the golden statues as his own.
The usually well composed DiCaprio stumbled through his speech as he thanked everyone and gave his best speech about global warming and it’s effects on the planet.
This great accomplishment, however, is being overshadowed because he is being called ‘climate hypocrite’ for his call to action on global warming when he doesn’t practice the ‘green measures’ he preaches about. A feeling that is likely to snowball since he used most of his Oscar speech to talk about the controversial topic.
During the Sony hack scandal it was discovered that Leo flew six times in a short time via gas-guzzling private jet and has also been spotted enjoying several vacations on massive private yachts throughout his career.
Does this make him a climate hypocrite? You be the judge.
