Leonardo DiCaprio is not being banned from Indonesia despite reports.
The 41-year-old Oscar winner was getting threats about being “blacklisted” from the country after he shared his concerns for the wildlife there on social media.
“My view is that DiCaprio‘s concerns are both sincere and substantial, and he has certainly acted in good faith,” Siti Nurbaya, Indonesia’s minister of the environment and forestry, said (via People). “In fact, we largely share his concerns on this matter.”
The statement continued, “In light of this and to reciprocate his sincerity and good intentions, I am open to working together with DiCaprio in a joint effort whereby both of us can have our concerns addressed, including those that pertain to the Leuser Ecosystem.”
