Leonardo faces criticism on taking jet to receive award

WEB DESK: Revenant starer, Leonardo Di Caprio, faced criticism for taking a private jet to collect an environmental award in New York.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio has been termed ‘hypocrite’ by many. He responded to the criticism, saying he only hitched “a ride with flights that were already planned.”

“He was asked to speak at both Riverkeeper and amfAR events, but the only way to attend the two fundraisers was to hitch a ride with flights that were already planned. Leo helped both events raise millions, donated his own funds, auctioned off his house and had speaking roles in both programs,” sources said.

DiCaprio took a one-week vacation at his home during the amfAR Gala at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Thursday, May 19 in Cap d’Antibes,
