Country Of Indonesia Has Some Beef With Leonardo DiCaprio

Indonesia, a country, and Leonardo DiCaprio, an actor, are apparently on the rocks. In fact, the former is threatening to impose a ban, preventing our favorite iced-over lover from crossing its borders. Indonesia, apparently, can let go —and it just might, thanks.

According to the A.V. Club, “this unimaginable dislike stems from DiCaprio’s recent criticism of deforestation taking place in the country’s rainforests, where numerous animal habitats are being destroyed with slash-and-burn practices designed to facilitate the building of lucrative palm oil plantations.”

DiCaprio spoke out via his Instagram account, where he posted a picture of himself mid-fist-bump with a Sumatran Orangutan.


Pretty cute, right? Indonesia thinks not. The country’s spokesperson, Heru Santoso has told reporters, “We support his concern to save the Leuser ecosystem. But we can blacklist him from returning to Indonesia at any time if he keeps posting incitement or provocative statements in his social media.”

This is why I actually like Leo. I truly don’t give a shit about his sex life as long as everyone is consenting. I have met way too many monogamous “nice guys” who are actually not decent human beings to judge someone solely on their sex life.

He puts in actual work for the environment, which god knows we need, and he was the executive producer of Cowspiracy which is my go-to recommendation for when people ask me why I’m a vegan (why do people always ask that?). Also, he texts back quickly, which I now know thanks to JLo.

Leo, you get a Stanley nod of approval.
