When Leonardo Dicarpio finally won his long-awaited Oscar many people for him and when delivered at a state of the art speech about climate change which will affect everybody in the world, people were more than impressed.
However, there were some critics like former Single ladies star Stacey Dash, who came out and criticized the Leo’s speech.
“Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar was truly a well-deserved win. DiCaprio’s speech, you could tell, was planned ahead of time. He knew he had it. Though I’ve not seen his film yet, I hear it’s great,” the 49-year-old star said before criticizing him. “But he reminds me of Chicken Little, the bird who ran around the neighborhood and disturbed everyone ‘with her foolish alarm.”
Leonardo got the Oscar for best lead actor for his role in the Revenant and dedicated most of his speech to address the alarming threat to lives of billions of people who live on this planet,
“Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.
We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed.”
