Brazilian President Jair Bonsonaro gave Leonardo DiCaprio a lecture in hypocrisy, telling the virtue-signaling actor that he should ‘give up his yacht before lecturing the world‘ about the environment.
Of note, in January DiCaprio was pictured vacationing with friends on the $150 million “Vava II,” the largest yacht manufactured in Britain, which is estimated to produce 238kg of carbon dioxide per mile – as much as the average British car emits in two months.

Bolsonaro was responding to DiCaprio, who tweeted that the Amazon rainforest has “faced an onslaught of illegal deforestation at the hands of extractive industry over the last 3 years.”
“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.”
