‘Eco-Warrior’ Leonardo DiCaprio Attends Green Fashion Awards after Flying 12k Miles in 2 Weeks on Private Jet

Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio has been blasted as an eco-hypocrite after attending a green fashion awards event.

On Thursday, the 48-year-old “eco-warrior” posed alongside leaders in sustainable fashion and activism while attending the Green Carpet Fashion Awards.

However, the actor appeared at the exclusive ceremony after clocking up a staggering 12,000 miles on his private jet in just two weeks.

And while other eco-hypocrites, such as “climate czar” John Kerry or Bill Gates, often claim their private jet use is necessary for fighting “global warming,” DiCaprio can’t use that excuse, this time at least.

DiCaprio accumulated over 12,000 miles of travel as he traveled between the U.S. and cities such as London, Milan, and Paris over just two weeks.

Yet he wasn’t traveling to these cities to fight “climate change” – DiCaprio was jetting around the world to enjoy nights out with numerous fashion models, according to the Daily Mail.

DiCaprio joined a host of stars headed to the annual Green Carpet Fashion Awards, with Heidi Klum, Cate Blanchett, and Jodie Turner-Smith hitting the red carpet with style.

The event celebrates figures in the fashion and entertainment worlds who have allegedly been positive forces in promoting cultural change.

DiCaprio is been celebrated as a climate activist due to his outspoken advocacy for environmental issues throughout much of his career.

As Slay News reported last year, DiCaprio ruffled the feathers of Brazil’s former President Jair Bolosnaro by meddling in the country’s environmental policies.

In a post on Twitter, DiCaprio said: “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.”

Bolsonaro called out DiCaprio over the comments, telling the wealthy actor to “give up his yacht before lecturing the world.”

“You again, Leo?” Bolsonaro fired back at DiCaprio on Twitter.

“I could tell you, again, to give up your yacht before lecturing the world, but I know progressives: you want to change the entire world but never yourselves, so I will let you off the hook.

“Between us, it’s weird to see a dude who pretends to love the Planet paying more attention to Brazil than to the fires harming Europe and his own country.

“One may wonder if you’re obsessed with my country (or its resources) or if you just believe Brazil is the only one on Earth.

“But don’t worry, Leo, unlike the places you are pretending not to see by brilliantly playing the role of a blind man, Brazil is and will carry on being the nation that most preserves.

“You can carry on playing with your Hollywood star toys as we do our job,” Bolsonaro added.

DiCaprio has long been criticized for his lengthy trips via private jet in short spaces of time.

In 2016, he reportedly flew 8,000 miles via private jet from Europe to New York City to accept an award for his environmental activism.

At the time, the actor was spotted in Cannes, where the Film Festival was underway – but left the French Riviera for a brief trip to New York City, where he collected an honor at the Riverkeeper Fishermen’s Ball, Page Six reported.

He then hopped back on another private jet to attend the amfAR gala in Antibes, about eight miles from Cannes, just 24 hours later.

While in 2014, he made a speech in front of the United Nations about “climate change” after marching with 400,000 others on the streets of New York.

But the Hollywood star’s own jet-set lifestyle reveals a double standard on the issue of “climate change” as he boasts a number of homes and travels between them via private jet.
