Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro recently made headlines for his allegations against Leonardo DiCaprio for apparently funding two non-profit organisations, which were supposedly responsible for the deadly Amazon Rainforest fires. Taking to his Facebook page for a live session, Jair stated that Leonardo was collaborating with the burning of the Amazon and that he was waging a campaign against Brazil. No evidence was provided to Bolsonaro's claims. It was DiCaprio's environmental organisation Earth Alliance that had pledged $5 million to help protect the Amazon, post the summer fires.

While the Oscar-winning actor took to his Instagram page to issue a statement strongly denying the President's claims, Mark Ruffalo too came out in support of his good friend and Shutter Island (2010) co-star. Taking to his Twitter page and known for his brash no-filtered views on politics and climate change the Avengers: Endgame star tweeted, "Bolsonaro and his ilk are scapegoating the very people protecting the Amazon from the fires he himself has allowed to happen. Ask yourself: what has recently changed in Brazil to have this happen now? Bolsonaro and his (non)environmental policies."
