Apparently you CAN stay mad at this face.

Defying an international community that has come down hard on whether everybody pretty much likes Leonardo DiCaprio‚ÄĒwe do, it turns out, to the tune of what nobody‚Äôs coming out and calling a Mr. Congeniality Oscar for his work on The Revenant‚ÄĒthe Indonesian government has made some noises about banning the Titanic and Wolf Of Wall Street star from its borders. This unimaginable dislike stems from DiCaprio‚Äôs recent criticism of deforestation taking place in the country‚Äôs rain forests, where numerous animal habitats are being destroyed with slash-and-burn practices designed to facilitate the building of lucrative palm oil plantations


The actor lobbed the critiques via Instagram, utilizing the tried-and-true ‚Äúfist bump an orangutan while being Leonardo DiCaprio‚ÄĚ method of internet marketing. But Indonesian spokesman Heru Santoso was unmoved by DiCaprio‚Äôs rock-solid argument/cuteness, telling reporters, ‚ÄúWe support his concern to save the Leuser ecosystem. But we can blacklist him from returning to Indonesia at any time if he keeps posting incitement or provocative statements in his social media.‚ÄĚ

DiCaprio joins a small club of performers who’ve earned both our lasting, borderline-automatic affections, and the unrelenting ire of the Indonesian government; Harrison Ford has also been censured by government officials for his harsh criticisms of its agricultural practices.
