The hypocrisy in Hollywood should come as a surprise to no one. But Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has something to say about it. “Give up your yacht before lecturing on climate change,” Bolsonaro recently told DiCaprio.
Jair Bolsonaro, the president of Brazil, handed virtue-signaling star Leonardo DiCaprio a lesson on hypocrisy by advising him to “give up his yacht before lecturing the world” on environmental issues, reports CNN.
Notably, DiCaprio was photographed vacationing with buddies on the $150 million “Vava II,” the largest yacht made in Britain. This vessel is expected to release 238kg of carbon dioxide each mile, which is equal to the amount emitted by a typical British automobile in two months.
DiCaprio tweeted that the Amazon rainforest had “faced an onslaught of illegal deforestation at the hands of extractive industry over the last 3 years,” to which Bolsonaro responded.
“You again, Leo?” Tweeted Bolsonaro. “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,” he continued.
The trouncing goes on:
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.
Actually, in my government average deforestation is way lower than it was in the past, when the crook turned candidate that your Brazilian buddy supports was in power.
It’s clear that everyone who attacks Brazil and its sovereignty for the sake of virtue signaling doesn’t have a clue about the matter. They don’t know, for instance, that we preserve more than 80% of our native vegetation or that we have the cleanest energy among G20 nations.
It’s also clear that you don’t know that my government announced a new commitment to eradicate illegal deforestation by 2028, and not by 2030 as most countries. Or maybe you do know that, but for some reason pretend to be ignorant. I hope you not getting too much for this role.
If its within your reach, we would love to see you stop spreading missinformation. In the recent past, you used a 2003 image to talk about the Amazon wildfires allegedly happening in 2019 and was exposed, but I have forgiven you. So please go and sin no more.
By the way, what do you think about the hitting coal market in Europe? And what about Greta Timberlake, do you know what she has been up to lately and what she has to say about it? If I was hosting a barbecue in my house, I’m sure she would be yelling “How dare you?”.
Do not look up when acting hypocritically, always!
