A Titanic Error for Leo?

First Nations in British Columbia criticized Leonardo DiCaprio for supporting the anti-salmon farming campaign by Wild First, arguing he cherry-picks Indigenous rights to support

The Kitasoo Xai’xais Nation, which relies on salmon farming, emphasized that these farms are crucial for their economy and are managed sustainably. They accused DiCaprio of spreading misinformation and ignoring the negative impact of banning salmon farms on Indigenous communities. They invited him to discuss the issue directly with them to better understand their perspective.
