Ah Leonardo, you’ve caught yourself living a lie and we all know it now. Leonardo DiCaprio has been hinting at how environmentally friendly he is because he owns a hybrid car which everyone knows doesn’t actually benefit anything if you drive it to the airport to take a private jet to the World Cup.

To make matters worse, Leo’s private jet landed before a World Cup game taking place between Spain and Germany, and caused mass delays, as well as an air traffic jam:

“Hundreds of fans bound for Durban for the Germany-Spain World Cup semi final missed the game because their flights were unable to land, after air traffic authorities closed the city’s airport because of congestion on the runway caused by private aircraft.
The situation was described as “absolute chaos” by the pilot of one British Airways flight which took off from Cape Town in mid-afternoon but was diverted to Johannesburg.”

Leonardo previously made the following heart-warming statement:

“Global warming is not only the number one environmental challenge we face today, but one of the most important issues facing all of humanity. We all have to do our part to raise awareness about global warming and the problems we as a people face in promoting a sustainable environmental future for our planet.”

That is, unless there is a really good game that you need to fly around the world for.
