Add Leonardo DiCaprio’s name to the long list of hypocritical celebrities who are obsessed with climate change but live with the carbon footprint of a small town.
He recently accepted an award for his environmental activism but flew a private jet thousands of miles to get it.

Hypocrite! Leo takes private jet to collect environmental award
Leo DiCaprio picked up an environmental award in NYC this week — but hypocritically expanded his carbon footprint by 8,000 miles when he obtained the honor, by taking a private jet from Cannes, then flying straight back to France on another jet for a model-packed fund-raiser a night later.
DiCaprio was at the Cannes Film Festival this week, and was spotted there partying at club Gotha on Monday with model Georgia Fowler, then jetted back to New York for the Riverkeeper Fishermen’s Ball at Chelsea Piers on Wednesday, where he was honored by the clean-water advocacy group and Robert De Niro.
Just 24 hours later, DiCaprio reappeared back in France for amfAR’s glitzy Cinema Against AIDS gala, where he gave a speech.
In his speech at the Oscars, DiCaprio called climate change one of the greatest threats of our time.
Too bad his actions don’t match his words.
