Editor’s note: Story contains explicit language.

After receiving his first-ever Academy Award, actor and climate activist Leonardo DiCaprio used part of his acceptance speech to harp on his favorite subject: catastrophic climate change.

DiCaprio called climate change the “most urgent threat facing our entire species” and blamed big corporations for contaminating initiative on the issue. Nevermind, his jet-setting, yacht-renting ways.

Twitter users may clam up a little after hearing about a decision by an L.A. Superior Court allowing outspoken conservative Hollywood celebrity James Woods to proceed with a defamation lawsuit against a man who tweeted Woods was a “cocaine addict.”
