Leonardo DiCaprio Faces Ban from Indonesia Over Instagram Comments

Leonardo DiCaprio Faces Ban from Indonesia Over Instagram Comments

Leonardo DiCaprio is currently traveling around Indonesia in a fight to help the wildlife there and now the government is threatening to ban him from the country.

The 41-year-old Oscar-winning actor is visiting the Leuser ecosystem, the last place on earth where orangutans, rhinos, tigers and elephants still live together in the wild. It is currently being threatened by Palm Oil agricultural destruction.

In several Instagram posts, Leo has urged his fans to join him in taking action to help preserve the rainforest.

“We support his concern to save the Leuser ecosystem,” Heru Santoso, the spokesman for the Directorate General for Immigration at the Law and Human Rights Ministry, said in a statement to the Associated Press. “But we can blacklist him from returning to Indonesia at any time if he keeps posting incitement or provocative statements in his social media.”

    Hi ladies! Proud of Leo spreading the word about what’s going on in Indonesia with the palm oil companies! He obviously struck a nerve with some members of the government. If anything, by making a big deal of the situation, the government is bringing even more publicity/scrutiny of the destruction of the pristine forests and the plight of the wildlife that inhabit them.

    Hi ladies! OFF TOPIC!!!!
    This just makes me love Jon Stewart and his wife Tracey even more. A bull on its way to slaughter yesterday, escaped and was wandering around Queens. The Stewarts, who own Farm Sanctuary, immediately stepped in and arranged for the bull to be brought to their place, where it will live out the rest of its life!

    Slow day so Leo 1990s gossip:

    24th October, 1998
    Leo sure can Party Hardy Leonardo DiCaprio may have been fashionably late for Sean (Puffy) Combs’ barbecue Sunday in East Hampton — the party started at 3 p.m., Leo got there six hours later. But the kid sure knows how to make an entrance: by plane, then limo, and with an entourage of a dozen young men.

    Capitalists are ruthless and they have no care or compassion for the planet or its inhabitants. Only way to stop them is to create green acres protection (that’s what its called here where I live) permanent sanctuaries, preservations with no expiration dates. Problem is the politicians get kickbacks for allowing passage of government land being sold to any kind of enterprise company for profit. I’m sure you know all this.

    NY DAILY NEWS…

    In other South Beach news, Mariah Carey and Sean (Puffy) Combs have each gone to great lengths to say they’re not an item.Of course, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t appreciate his music. Carey was in South Beach for the weekend and on Saturday she showed up at Tuscan Steak, where a party was being co-hosted by Russell Simmons and former Motown Records President Andre Harrell. Carey arrived with two female
    friends and had a blast lip-synching to Puff Daddy tunes. As for Puffy, he was expected that night but never showed.

    Wasnt it just last month that Leo was supposedly dating Mariah? Oh yeah and weren’t Leo and Sean supposedly dating Kidada Jones at the same time as well? I think the tabloids are going to have to get better at this reporting because either Leo and Sean are doing a tag team kinda thing, or the trash Mags are really losing it.

    Leonardo DiCaprio is caught up in a sizzling romantic triangle. The Titanic star is head over heels for Quincy Jones’ daughter Kidada who’s also dating rap sensation Puff Daddy!

    Talk about bi-coastal it’s a double play with gorgeous Kidada juggling two romances, one in New York and the other in Tinsel Town, a friend disclosed.
    Kidada who was the fiancee of slain rapper Tupac Shakur fell for Puff Daddy in a big way while she was in New York.

    But then she met Leonardo at a New York nightclub where they dirty-danced the night away. And when they both wound up back in Hollywood the date blossomed into a fulled-fledged romance.

    The 24-year-old beauty daughter of former Mod Squad star Peggy Lipton told her friend: “Leonardo is so fine and so much fun!” He is very spontaneous and doesn’t like to make plans so when we go out we just go with the flow. By the end of the night we can end up in a nightclub sweatin’ to the beat or sweatin’ in ahot tub either way we have a very memorable evening!

    An insider revealed: Leo and Kidada are definitely an item and Puff Daddy is unaware his gal is dating the ‘Titanic’ star. She’s been to visit Leo at his new, rented home in Malibu, and he’s visited her several times at her famous composer-father’s palatial home in Bel-Air.

    In late August, Leo limping around in a bandage around his knee from recent surgery picked up Kiada and they visited an art gallery in Pasadena, a source disclosed.

    Then the young couple went to a suite that Leo keeps at the Chateau Maramont hotel and they partied with friends into the night.
    Said the insider: “While Leo has had plenty of dates since the first of the year, Kidada is the only one that he’s gone on an ongoing basis”.

    Leo told me, ‘Kidada’s sexy, sweet and really knows the score. She’s the kind of girl I could settle down with.’ But another source added: “Kidada is telling friends she loves both Leo and Puffy. And it may be months before she decides which man she wants!”

    Beforeher romance with Tupac Shakkur, Kidada was engaged with rapper L.L. Cool J. But he broke up with her to marry the mother of his three
    children.

    Leonardo DiCaprio’s new best friend (at least over 71 anyway) serial swinger Hugh Hefner, who’s partying harder now that he’s living the single life. Leo’s spending nights at the Playboy mansion, hanging with Hef while Playmates hang all over HIM!! He even goes club-hopping with the Chief Bunny Rabbit. Insiders say Viagra-fueled Hef’s bored with geriatric Hollywood and has lured a younger crowd (Cameron Diaz, Jim Carrey, Leo, etc.) to the mansion.

    Cameron in an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine slams Leonardo for his choice not to attend the Oscars…. “I felt it was a snub, not on the film per se, but of all the people who did care and had sweated blood for the movie. So I kept calling and saying “you gotta go for the team, and frankly yourself, because the consequences of not going will be that you’re gonna look like a spoiled punk” So he didn’t go, and he looked like a spoiled punk.
    And Leo knows I feel that way, so I’m not saying anything out of school. he agonized over it….The message I got on my machine, like day before was ” It just aint me bro”……….Apparently getting 4 million to do a juice ad that airs only in Japan is him; going to the Oscars is not”.

    Last month or so (I don’r recall the exact date) Leo and Sara gilbert flew to Kansas city to celebrate Toby’s birthday with him. They went to restaurant in Westport, were very low key the only time anyone noticed them was when they brought a cake to the table and sang Happy birthday to Toby. the local paper (The Kansas City Star) reported that Leo had ordered the red snapper. The next day they went to a local amusement park – World’s of Fun and Leo rode the roller coaster The Tomberwolf twice.

    He was here for several nights and one night they set up private table for him at Station Casino. Sara was with him one of the nights. To quote the KC Star “The casino did it’s part to keep Leo isolated from the masses, but he was difficult to detect. He was wearing little glasses and kept his head down a lot” altogether he was there for about 7 1/2 hours. His game of choice – Blackjack. To quote the source at the casino “Although he didn’t walk away a winner, Dicaprio was a good sport. And NO he didn’t try to talk her back to his hotel room for a portrait sitting!”

    Really girl, try to find someone who can help you! If you’re from the US, Brasil or whereever there are institutions or just anonymus hotlines where you could talk to someone. Joana mentioned she’s a psychologist, maybe she could give advise as well.
    Don’t worry you don’t dissapoint me, I just delete it later, if you want, you can copy the links.

    If you are a Leo fan and the same person who leaves those disgusting comments on his friends IG’s, think about it – He said himself, that his friends are his family. If you hurt his friends, you hurt him as well – for no reason.
    Good night and good luck!

  • Dream Girl

    Are you Leo’s x gf? or is that a secret.

  • LeosBooBoo

    Hmmm, long before his endless succession of blonde gfs … From Tupac to Puffy to Leo to LL Cool J … talk about eclectic tastes. Interesting how Leo is the only non-rapper of the bunch. I think this is true because during his first visit on Oprah, she said, “Quincy Jones sings your praises.” Wonder what happened. Doesn’t seem like he has dated too many other women who resemble her.

    The latest Gossip has it that Leonardo is dating none other than
    Australian Singing Sensation Natalie Imbruglia. Here is an email that I received from a fellow Aussie which highlights the pair’s hot new romance… “Hi there…. i just heard this on national radio Fox FM Melbourne…..so its HOT HOT goss….Natalie Imbruglia’s singing teacher just talked to Natalie and apparently those rumours are true….Natalie is dating Leonardo …. and … apparently she was supposed to be secretly bringing him home to Sydney for Christmas”….

    I’m not sure I believe this relationship (if any) was romantic, plus Leo doesn’t seem like the type to steal his friend’s gf and he is still good friends with Sean Combs, maybe Leo was at Sean’s house and she needed a ride to the store?

  • CourtneyBettyEricLee

    Natalie was far too short 4 Leo, and she’s always liked indie/rock guys.

    Hi could you tell me what did the deleted comments say please? Thanks

  • Revengefan0101

    Someone please inform also… that it’s 2016, not 1998.

  • Dream Girl

    That’s more believable. The tabloids love to link any woman Leo even talks to as dating/etc. him.

    did u ever inform the authorities about the hack pics since you were so outraged? I doubt it LOL

  • Dream Girl

    Candy posted a few comments. One was thanking mcawesome for starting a thread for candy called candy’s thread. (there are no posts there) another comment was that she is just informing us about what she knows about leo. Others were nonsence , I just called her out and looks like the moderators from the other thread (some girls from here) deleted her discuss account unless she left. Some of the stuff she said before was beyond funny, and I asked her if she had audio archives of the conversations she spied on, it is illegal if she did do that so I called her out and she did not want to incriminate herself in any form. She should work for the gossip tabloids many told her.

  • Ash

    To be honest I don’t expect anything less from a corrupted sh*thole like Indonesia anyway.

  • LeosBooBoo

    Okay.

    Thanks a lot.Could you tell me which were the gossips.I know the others don’t believe but I ‘d Really like to know.Please.

  • Dream Girl

    Thing is since I am a devoted fan of Leo’s I can not spread stuff around like that. It’s just the usual nonsense that’s said, to put it briefly. Since I only believe in factual evidence I can not make false assumptions to believe any of the nonsense that is said. To me Leo is someone that holds a special place in my heart and I will not slander him.

    FBI sinks teeth into Leonardo DiCaprio’s film Wolf of Wall St

    It was a tale of 1980s excess and debauchery that helped to resurrect the career of Leonardo DiCaprio. Yet investigators now believe the 2013 Hollywood blockbuster The Wolf of Wall Street was made with money allegedly misappropriated from Malaysian taxpayers.

    Executives from Red Granite Pictures, the production company that bankrolled the film, have been subpoenaed by the FBI, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    A global paper trail points to Red Granite receiving cash from 1 Malaysia Development Berhad, known as 1MDB — a controversial state-backed investment fund set up by Najib Razak, Malaysia’s prime minister.

    The film finance scandal is only a small part of a much larger 1MDB inquiry.Razakis alleged to have siphoned hundreds of millions of dollars from the fund, which missed repayments on its dollars 11bn (pounds 7.7bn) debts this year.

    Red Granite was set up by Razak’s stepson, Riza Aziz, 39. Investigators believe it received dollars 155m from 1MDB in 2012, much of which was invested in The Wolf of Wall Street.

    The movie generated returns of more than dollars 400m and was nominated for five Oscars, including best picture, but there is no evidence of any profits going back to 1MDB.

    Red Granite had previously made only one other film — a comedy starring Kristen Wiig — while The Wolf of Wall Street producers had struggled to raise financing, dogged by concerns over its graphic sex scenes and excessive drug-taking.

    Aziz threw a lavish party at the Cannes Film Festival that featured performances by Kanye West and Pharrell Williams to celebrate the movie’s success.

    Aziz and his business partner, Christopher McFarland, are also renowned as collectors of Hollywood memorabilia.
