Leonardo DiCaprio Gets Pressure to Step Down From U.N. Role

Leonardo DiCaprio suits up in gray for a screening of Before The Flood held during the 2016 BFI London Film Festival at Odeon Leicester Square on Saturday (October 15) in London, England.

The 41-year-old actor is reportedly getting pressure to step down from his role as United Nations Messenger of Peace.

According to CNN, a Swiss rainforest charity wants Leo to explain his alleged ties to a multibillion-dollar embezzlement case.

Leonardo DiCaprio has consistently refused to explain his close personal and financial ties with key persons of the Malaysian 1MDB scandal,” Lukas Straumann, director of the the Bruno Manser Fund, said in a statement. “This is unacceptable.”

    Maybe his legal representation is equally terrible as his PR team?

  • also…
  • easleo

    He is beautiful!!! 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

  • also…

    I think it’s the combination this time. His PR team is eager to respond to any little thing in general except for this one. I think his PR team should have just said at least something neutral for the time being.

  • easleo

    The post say ” and his crew” … Who?

  • easleo

    Thanks. 😂

  • easleo

    Well, she had a good weekend, now she touch a bad weekend.. Ahh IS the life…

    lol

    multibillion-dollar embezzlement case< Rihanna romance rumours lmao

  • also…

    I know! Rihanna or any kind of commitment ( Kelly engagement, sloppy bun wedding ) fuels an innediate response ( like within hours ) but not this. lol

  • bored babe

    Ur kids will make fun of u, last 2 jj lady fans! They will know he is gay)

  • Supreme

    How is he gonna have kids if he is gay?

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi ladies! It sucks that JJ chose to go with a negative headline instead of focusing on the positive. I guess all they care about is the clicks :(
    That being said…. Leo looks fantastic in a grey suit. I wish he would wear them more often. Looks like he is hanging with Tom H. I hope he can relax and have fun while over there!! Can’t wait to see him in Paris. Does anyone know when the Paris premiere is happening?
    PS… it’s kind of pathetic when you go to a new thread and half the comments are blocked – smh!
    Have a great day everyone!!!

  • Shelly

    Wow, this B.S is still going on ;(

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi ladies! From BZ – thanks!
    Leo Sighting! Looks like he went to an art exhibit at the Royal Academy tonight if this tweet is legit! Maybe more pictures!

    Very excited to see @LeoDiCaprio @royalacademy this eve. Hope he enjoyed the #abstractexpressionism exhibition!

  • also…

    Its a gossip site where you find both positive and negative stories. Leonis a big name and this is a story. You cant expect site to chose only good stories to post. This is what’s trending on twitter as well as opposed to the premiere. 😏
    On the orevious thread it was pages and pages of blocked comments for me.

  • Dannae Arthis

    Hi Zzzzzzz ! We are so happy to see Leo in Paris tomorrow. The Paris Premiere will be on Monday night at Théâtre du Châtelet, 8.00 p.m. French magazines said that Leo will present his new project movie. Some people working with him for the COP21 will be there too.

  • bored babe

    Not his kids. Kids of his “fans”, its like the situation with Cary Grand. The dude is gay but Hollywood still uses the old PR games.

  • Dannae Arthis

    Leo did many things for the Climate change and COP21 so don’t understand all this negative headline too.

    Leo in London leaving … maybe the club last night or the exhibit tonight

  • Soleus

    ” Leo gets pressure to step down from UN Role” that’s like asking him to give back his oscar…

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! I agree, but almost the first half of the article is about the premiere in London and that isn’t mentioned at all.
    relast thread – utter joke:( I noticed the troll deleted her account…. again – so pathetic and sad.

  • also…

    If Jared just uses a different title and mentions the scandal it would have been already different / somewhat better.
    Yep, the Candy show continues. What’s new?

  • moviebuff

    🤔 marriage or a serious relationship Aaahhh! Deny! Embezzlement,demand to resign UN appointed role, FBI investigation🙈🙉🙊

  • also…

    Wtf happened last night? The troll was up last night talking to herself for hours. JFC

    I thought Leo’s documentary was going to open in select cities this Friday but I couldn’t find any theater showings in LA.

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! Guess he didn’t want to be filmed – lol!

  • also…

    I think I figured who the real Candy is on ig. The same comments she makes on Leo fan accounts, Nina accounts and here are similar comments. She’s a woman in her late 40s or 50s … how sad.

  • Dis gonna be gud

    This is the most well rested he’s looked in awhile. The suit is nice too.

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! I noticed it’s being shown at the LA Film School on the 20th. I’m going to call on Monday to see if there is anyway to attend.

  • also…

    I agree. He looks younger than on recent photos.

  • also…

    When does he? lol

  • Dis gonna be gud
  • Dis gonna be gud

    Yikes. Andrea 2.0

  • easleo

  • also…

    This is Candy aka Andrea 2.0

    Leo please get a restraining order against these lunatics. Why are women in their late 40s obsessed with Leo? Be real he would Never look your way smh

  • also…

    The Royal theater in Santa Monica is going to show the documentary starting friday.

  • also…
  • also…

    Now we know you’re real identity … lmao

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! Not cool to post someone’s IG account, especially since it has photos of her family. :(

  • miau

    Hi.Thanks for the video but his bodyguard’s using a lantern? why…? to avoid that someone record him?lt’s ridiculous,that ends up drawing even more attention.On another side he looks good.

  • also…

    I saw her posting on sloppy bun’s account drooling over her ( and Leo ). I don’t see how she could be Candy anyway.

  • easleo

    why do not stop fighting with each other and responsible for what you say, everyone has an opinion ,we all know here that leo will never marry, so stop dreaming like idiots.,
    have fun because this is for, to have fun not to discuss, everything is a joke, or perhaps think nina or leo will get to read this…. please.

  • easleo

    she always asking why nina is not with leo thats all.. in nina IG, IS NOT A CRAZY WOMAN i reed her comments and???

  • also…

    The account is public how is that any different from sharing ig pics of people who take pics with Leo. You can go on their ig accounts and look at their family pics too. I didn’t hack or steal anyone’s pics.

  • moviebuff

    Yep. He doesn’t look bloated or tired at all. He looks😍

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! The difference is, people who post pictures of Leo know fans are going to be looking at their account. This person has nothing about Leo in her account. She made a comment on Nina’s picture. If I made a comment, I wouldn’t expect my IG account to be posted on a gossip site. It just seems kinda creepy – jmo!

  • Guest

    I agree. I don’t see anything about Leo!! Creepy😬😁😬

  • Miss Plum

    Haggard tired bloated #whyhatin

  • also…

    It wasn’t 1 comment. For days she’s been making the same comments in leo accounts and Nina accounts. It’s a public social media account. You don’t want anyone looking at your pics then make your account private. Creepy is hacking someone’s account and stealing their password which Candy did to a poster and it baffles me how some continue to be nice to this f*cking lunatic

  • also…

    Another candy acct smh
