Leonardo DiCaprio Faces Ban from Indonesia Over Instagram Comments
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.”
