Leonardo DiCaprio used a standard, office file folder for his climate march sign, lol Click Here to Open in a New Window

Leonardo DiCaprio used a standard, office file folder for his climate march sign, lolLook, let me start by saying Leonardo DiCaprio has done a lot to combat climate change.  He produced a climate change documentary titled Before the Flood that dropped in 2016. He has a foundation "dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth’s inhabitants." The foundation has given $61 million to causes that align with that mission statement. He talks about climate change all the time. And, also, he was among the ~200,000 people in Washington, D.C. on Saturday to protest a White House that very much does not share his (scientifically valid) concern for the damage people are doing to the climate. SEE ALSO: Trump's big EPA website change should make you furious It's just kind of funny that the man who has done all of the above couldn't get a sign for the protest that was bigger than a piece of computer paper.  Like, at what point did DiCaprio realize he wanted a sign? Did he wake up in a hotel and say, "Shit, I forgot people were going to write things on posters and walk around with them at this thing I'm going to today," and then he went to the nearest Staples, a Staples with markers but without posterboard? Did the hotel have a green and a red marker and a file folder somewhere? Does he keep these things in a bag? Anyway, it's just funny.
