Stacey Dash slams Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar speech.
Stacey Dash’s appearance at the Academy Awards was one of the most awkward parts of the night, and now she’s using her 15 minutes of fame to criticize one of the highlights of the Oscars – Leonardo DiCaprio’s acceptance speech.
In a blog post Thursday titled: Leonardo DiCaprio, quit being Chicken Little – The Sky is Not Falling,” the Fox News correspondent ripped into the actor’s stance against climate change.
“He reminds me of Chicken Little, the bird who ran around the neighborhood and disturbed everyone ‘with her foolish alarm.”
“Before making a speech the world would hear, he should have double checked his facts,” she said, and then went on to quote Reason Magazine’s reaction to the Leonardo DiCaprio’s position on global warming.
“DiCaprio is right that global average temperatures have been rising in recent years, but, as an article in Nature Climate Change just last week acknowledged, temperature has been rising much less rapidly than projected by most computer climate models,” Reason Magazine reported. “If this lower rate were sustained, it would substantially undercut claims that the world faces an urgent and impending climate catastrophe.”
After asserting how Leonardo DiCaprio’s speech was inaccurate, Dash concluded: “There are people 10 miles from Leo starving, stuck on entitlement. Twenty first century NAZIS to deal with and North Koreans playing with nukes. He needs to get his priorities straight. I would leave him alone, except that his rhetoric isn’t cheap.”
