For the unversed, Jair is accused by the environmentalists of allowing deforestation in Brazil. It is said that he has weakened the laws around the protection of the Amazon forest ever since he took over the office in 2019. It was in the same year that Bolsonaro had said that considering the Amazon forest as the lungs of Earth is a misconception.

Jair Bolsonaro replied to Leonardo DiCaprio, and wrote “thanks for your support, Leo! It’s really important to have every Brazilian voting in the coming elections.

His next tweet read, “By the way, the picture you posted to talk about the wildfires in the Amazon in 2019 is from 2003. There are people who want to arrest Brazilian citizens who make this kind of mistake here in our country. But I’m against this tyrannical idea. So I forgive you. Hugs from Brazil!” The later part of the tweet refers to a law passed in 2020 in Brazil that punishes people from spreading misinformation online.
