Awe Leo what a bummer, you’re a total bum! Every little girl’s heartthrob, back in the day, just went majorly downhill as his charity is caught up in a sleazy money-laundering scam.
Dumbass DiCaprio is a ginormous hypocritic, he pretends to care about the environment and even accuses Republicans of being “anti-science”! Sooo when you spot Leo’s eco-foundation in the news for a $3,000,000,000.00 money laundering scam…
DiCaprio was finishing the final touches on one of the glitziest charitable events of the year: his third annual fundraiser for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. Little did he know that earlier that same day, half a world away, the good old U.S. Department of Justice was filing a complaint with the U.S. District Court that suggested that his charity was caught up in a scam worthy of some of his on-screen roles (Catch Me If You Can…great movie!) In fact, this is one of the largest embezzlement cases, totaling more than $3 billion siphoned from a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund called 1MDB.
While the complaint does not target DiCaprio — he’s referred to twice in the 136-page document and only as “Hollywood Actor 1” — the scandal shines an unfamiliar light on the charitable foundation of the most powerful actor in Hollywood thanks to the way the LDF has benefited directly from DiCaprio’s relationship with key figures in the saga. And much like the gala in St. Tropez, with its expressions of one-percenter excess ostensibly in support of saving the environment (guests helicoptering in to dine on whole sea bass after watching a short film about the dangers of overfishing), a closer look at the LDF itself raises questions about its ties to the 1MDB players as well as the lack of transparency often required (or offered in this case) for the specific structure the actor has chosen for his endeavor.
First off, kudos to the Hollywood Reporters for even scoring points off the hypocrisy, because the line about the whole sea bass throws some quality shade.
Yes, I realize these gifs are all of Leo. Sometimes life offers you wonderful little presents, wrapped nicely in irony. We take them when we can.
But more importantly, Leo’s global warming money scandal is textbook leftism. The bleeding hearts, especially the rich, elitist bleeding hearts, claim they are “helping the little guy” by expecting, nay lecturing, the little guy to make sacrifices. Those sacrifices being: drive a smaller car, don’t use plastic bags, feel constant guilt over humanity’s supposed disastrous impact on Mother Earth, and act like a general douche wherever you go. Yes, I’m looking at you rude Prius drivers with your #ImWithHer bumperstickers. You know who you are. Feel shame. Feel great shame.
These snobby celebrities make put themselves on such a pedestal because they are “saving the planet”, while they continue their pompous lifestyle that includes private jet’s multiple homes, and many cars, how is that good for the planet? We should tell them if they really want to help they can go live in a tent and use a porta potty for their bathroom…fake hippies.
Global warming is such a scam. But, hey, it’s a great way to line their already overflowing pockets!
