Celebrities are always on the lookout for the latest cause to latch onto while promoting their own public image. The latest celebrity cause is the Amazon wildfires, which they claim is sucking up 20% of the world's oxygen. It would be an apocalyptic event of epic proportions - it it was true.

Celebrities such as Sean "Puffy" Combs, Madonna, Cristiano Ronaldo, Leonardo DiCaprio and French President Emmanuel Macron have all taken to social media to raise the alarm about the Amazon wildfires in South America.

"Our house is on fire. Literally. The Amazon, the lung of our planet which produces 20 percent of our oxygen is burning," Macron tweeted.

And German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the "acute emergency" should belong on the world's agenda.

Stars such as Madonna, Cristiano Ronaldo, Leonardo DiCaprio, rapper Jaden Smith, and race car driver Lewis Hamilton retweeted photos that they claim shows the entire Amazon rainforest basin consumed by raging fires.

None of them mentioned that wildfires occur in parts of the Amazon every year.

But a French newspaper did their research and discovered all of the photos and videos either misrepresent the actual wildfires or are totally misleading. Some of the photos were taken over a decade ago, and other photos aren't of the Amazon at all.

For instance, the photo tweeted by Macron was taken 16 years ago. The photographer, Loren McIntyre, died in 2003.

Sean Combs gathered his youngest children (and a friend's son) around him for a PSA video he recorded about the wildfires.

"This is an emergency announcement. Did y'all know that the Amazon has been burning for weeks," he said before showing old footage of a forest on fire somewhere.

Leonardo DiCaprio shared two wildfire images on Twitter - the same one tweeted by Macron - and another photo shot in the Peruvian city of Puerto Maldonado in 2016, according to France24.com. Peru is not currently on fire, though authorities there are "on alert" just in case.

Rapper Jaden Smith, son of superstars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, tweeted a dramatic photo of a raging forest fire with columns of smoke and embers scorching the sky. The photo was actually snapped in 1989.

Lewis Hamilton also shared a photo of wildfires - taken by American photographer Loren McIntyre before he died in 2003.

    Who is that youngin' in Diddy's lap?

  • Carrington

    Why would this even be a thing to ATTEMPT to convince people that this isn't a real thing? I don't get the logic here. I just don't.

  • Ryan

    Sooo, there aren't any fires in the Amazon, proven cause a "celebrity" posted an old pic?

  • Dontgetdraggedputa??

    So because wildfires happen we shouldnt care? We care about presidents wearing brown suits but fck the amazon burning? Do yall know what an ecosystem is? We cant campaign for money to stop a source of oxygen from burning? Logic Donde estas

    I see the ol' climate change, or climate crisis crowd, or whatever they are calling it these days is at it again...wildfires happen in forests everyday B....did you die tho??

    Also, I dont wanna hear anything DiCaprio has to say about climate change....screaming global warming, as he proceeds to hop in his big assed private plane with only 3 folks on board LOL

    The pictures they are posting on Twitter aren't even of the Amazon fires. Why don't they show the actual pictures? Because the actual fires are too small?

  • Fire & Ice

    LMAO

  • Cricket404

    Same thing with hurricanes, media creates fright frenzy every August/September.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No one said the fires aren't real. But celebrities do have a way of over exaggerating things.

    Ugh...I’m so sick of the so called “one percenters” trying to tell everybody else what to believe and how to live. Who in their right mind would actually listen to most of these no morals having idiots. ?

  • deadellamore
  • No Love Lost

    Their Fascist President Bolsonaro is setting them. Under him, there has been an 83% rise in wildfires. It's a slash and burn tactic to take land so mega corporations and fascists can get even richer.

  • Karen Brady

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Who is that little kid in Diddys lap?

  • Carrington

    The outcome, for me, far outweighs the methods used to get there, in this instance.
    Climate change is real and people are living in 105 degree temperatures in cities that rarely get above 85 and we're acting like it's a "hoax"...
    If they have to say, "The sky is falling" in order to get folk to wake up... I ain't above it. I'm moving from the state I live in because I can no longer take the heat...

  • Bushbabe

    The mansions they live in could fit in the Amazon. Climatologist agree that humans only affect. 000001pecent . This is a scam and lying Hollywood needs to be put to shame for thier willing ignorance. Not one person complaining has a climatologist degree so I ignore them.

  • Bushbabe

    You don't know the meaning of fascist and you are just regurgitating the same stupid trope rhetoric as the wacko leftists.

  • chaisun

    Same here in nyc. It’s scary!

  • JALC

    Those twins and their turtle necks, though ???

    Anyway, thanks for setting the record straight Auntie

  • Bushbabe

    Al Gore was a scam artist and if it is real why is his mansion if Florida not under water like he said would be. Climate change is a Global elites money making scam.

    Climate change is a scam. Nature, not the activity of Man, governs the climate.

  • JALC

    EXACTLY! The Earth is a living organism. it knows how to heal and sustain itself. Remember the hole in the ozone layer? No longer an issue and not because of anything humanity did differently. The Earth has been here longer than humans. We'll cease to exist again before the Earth itself.

    What a sad state of affairs when you read the headline and first thing that comes to mind is the online retailer Amazon, coz that's what happened to me! I thought wow Amazon are causing fires, I already see them as a sinister company anyway lol

  • WhoKnew

    Saw em last Thanksgiving wearing shorts. I told my son look at that bullshyt. Bout to give me the flu just watching em because it was way too cold for shorts and they had on short sleeves when they should have had on a coat.

    Farmers routinely burn their fields to enrich the soil so yeah your right. Its not abnormal. People are bugging because its expensive land with multi million dollars homes getting in natures way.

    LOL

  • EMILY POST

    How about people in the music industry who promoted and profited from black violence in the black community. Latch on to stopping the violence crusades in black neighborhoods.
    Hey is it true a British/Russian dude owns a big huge portion of the music industry???? ? Including black ? . Wow ? I am hearing black music is so sold out and owned by everyone else but black people in America. Black children are just the casualty of all the persona fraud.

  • JazzyPudding

    Right. Inquiry minds want to know.... LOL

  • Bonita

    Once again, people believing everything they see and hear on tell-lie-vision. And anytime celebrities are promoting it, eyebrows should really be raised. Question everything!

  • TV

    Since when do forest fires burn for 3 weeks out of control?

  • hottlanta

    Where is aoc n the squad to the environment fake new deal fake rescue. Sick of folks acting like saving thé enviroment is something new. I remember the dirty factory air in the major cities smog real bad in cali n washing powder with suds all over the place in the river. I also remember earth day n kids in school talking bout Johnny appleseed we planted trees n stuff. All of that has been done b4 it is not nothing new. We got rid of a lot of stuff. Mother nature takes care of itself. Of course the earth is getting warmer it is rotating around the sun. Duhhh

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Funny how people will downplay what’s right in front of one’s face..This isn’t about inept hollyweird, they’re just a mere deflection of yet another distraction. Anyone that has a little knowledge of how an ecosystem works and really pays attention can see it’s far from an exaggerated hoax..https://media0.giphy.com/media/g0mRknBrjBVXP4egk3/giphy.gif

  • Bushbabe

    I question everything these heathens in Hollywood promote because the are bought and paid for agents of deception.

  • Parent

    Honestly, it's annoying that all these celebrities want to be activists now, only because they want to be seen as socially conscious. It's corny to me.

    Well all these rich folks need to jump in & do something about instead of tweeting the masses. With all their ample financial resources. Wtd, they expect us to do?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    His mom name is Roxy something on IG she referred to Kim as her aunt but when Kim was alive she was always with Kim and the girls and now she is everywhere with the girls so I’m thinking she now the nanny and caregiver of the kids she always in pics and videos with them as well prolly never noticed her because she looks like a kids herself. She always with the girls at night and taking them to school and doing everything with them I’m shocked puffy ain’t tried her yet but she not really the model type although she is a nice looking young lady

    I hate when I see the little (white babies) in strollers in the debt of cold w/no hat, gloves, on. Just flemsy stuff. They don't bundle their children up.

  • currvalicious

  • Ci Sam

    Thanks for shedding light on this!

  • Just Ice

    School time! Big business is behind the Amazon fires in Brazil and Africa they tried the conventional way to cultivate the land and it didn't work. So now they're trying the Scorched Earth method. Because the crops don't grow the same in the Amazons like it does everywhere else. The Great William Cooper (RIP) spoke about this year's ago in one of his lectures but our conscious community was to busy in Egypt. P.S. Europe is going to sign a big beef deal with Brazil so it doesn't hurt to have that area ready for the raising and slaughter of animals, your media won't tell you this. So the meek, get your checkbooks out the employees are comming to your T.V.

  • Judi Jupiter

    Everytime I hear about saving the rainforest I think about that South Park episode...lol

  • millz

    Lol they are test tube babies... ???

  • currvalicious

    I don't like this photo of the twins.

  • JALC

    They look like snapping turtles.

  • currvalicious

    Yes, they do..

  • dazja

    So one unnamed French newspaper says the Amazon rainforest isn't on fire and we should believe it?

  • Dontgetdraggedputa??

    I wouldnt call them too small but regardless we should be more conscious of them is what im saying and if they gotta use lies to get people to give a hoot then so be it

  • Dowoop

    Well I thought the same thing

  • Tammie Reed

    That is too funny, you can NOT believe everything you SEE, HEAR and READ in the media!

  • sunni_daze

    So is the news lying too? Nvm..... they probably are.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Exactly!

  • T Willis

    So what happens if they’re right?
    Black ppl ?????

  • dblogged

    Hmmm...are those twin boys?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    It’s sad how black music has been taken away from the mainstream, and ownership of music catalogues and publishing has always escapes us for various reasons!

    I thought about our decline, as I watched on PBS Santana with his original band mates, remembering Wyclef collabo, an electrifying concert!

    No more black bands, singing groups since the 90s, talented black artists other than finding them underground, online, word of mouth, etc.! Lizzo and a few others with true musicianship are rare in the mainstream!

  • LoveChild

    Puffy?? I don’t trust him because I don’t trust any man who’s got 17-11 kids and never married one of the baby mothers!

  • Hazel

    He really should keep the twins out of the media. The world is a cruel place, and they don't have their mom to help boost their self-esteem. #kidsaresupposedtobeofflimitsbut

  • Raquel

    I read a quick header on this about the Amazon burning because we eat too much meat?? I'ma have to go back and read that story.

  • Raquel

    I think his name is Lyor Cohen or something like that. He's a Jew boy who controls a lot of these artists' images and music content. I think he is an American music industry executive though.

  • Dollface

    The twins are going to be beautiful like their mama when they grow up. You guys are pathetic... i mean seriously.

  • Jussjess25

    ?????????????

    This video makes the twins look scary ?. My God there necks are long af .

  • Scorpio

    The twins are splitting images of Puff. They're In that awkward body stage, but will probably have supermodel bodies in a few years. Like Tyra Banks did.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    I aint gonna call those twins ugly...... BUT DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Especially when it's super weak causes they keep choosing that ultimately only benefit their private foundations and selected beneficiaries with no real social progress (like most charities/foundations). Its just worse when you can see the celebrity's desperation and greed so clear view.

  • Stay Homie

    Sad that the only thing people on here can do is clown how children look.

  • T3

    Who is this lil boy? I feel like Puff referenced him as his son on IG???? If so, who da mammy???? ??

  • lovelygamour

    he was basically a bank enforcer. so after learning the business he decided to put together some money and people. it took a lot of money to start a label and go on tour. thats how he did it.

    one of the music labels had a string of flops and had to sell. so a jewish family either bought the whole thing or bought a large chunk.

    so it wasnt a conspiracy it was just who had tons of cash laying around.

    the conspiracy is 1. would they have sold to non-jews and 2. why was the recording industry allowed to have such awful accounting.

  • lovelygamour

    the amazon is burned for timber, oil, and minerals. some miners just killed a native tribal chief. we will lose the amazon and all its resources within decades. its just a fact.

  • Lucky8

    They will slay on the runway someday, because modeling has nothing to do with looks. When the girls get older, and start spending their fathers money y'all will be eating them words.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Imagine if all celebs would tweet about stopping police brutality.....
    Oh but Jay said we pass this... So I guess the rumored Amazon fired which they all tweet about is more important.. How about they ALL fly there in their private jets and a bucket of water, the fire would be stopped already....

  • Logan Roberts

    Where's Lori Harvey? I thought she would be babysitting lol.

  • Iimahje

    The little boy is Prince. His Mom is Raven, Kim Porter’s Niece.

    "This is an emergency announcement. Did y'all know that the Amazon has been burning for weeks," Diddy said before showing old footage of a forest on fire somewhere."

    I died when I read that part... Lmaooo!!!

  • Kay J

    Why are those twins so funny looking?? Thank GOD for their father's money...they won't ever have to worry about their looks ??

  • Thanos of Titan

    Oh, Sandra, your ignorance is amusing. You make some valid points, while sweeping the bigger issues under the rug.

    Maybe research what's going on, and provide some insight? You should stick strictly to messy celebrity gossip. Lls Oh, dear.

    No one should come here expecting you to provide credible or factual details on the current rain forest crisis.

  • Angela Marsh

    SELF HATING BLACKS ALWAYS GO HARD ON HE WAY OTHER BLACKS LOOK. PRAY FOR THEM, THEY DON'T LIKE THE WAY THEY LOOK....THEMSELVES.....

  • Bushbabe

    If it's real why is Al Gores Florida ocean front mansion not under water like he predicted it to be last year. Why Obama by a 15 million mansion recently in Massachusetts by the Ocean? Don't you have questions? And by the way NASA just reported that the Amazon is not on fire. Farmers are burning rotating crops. Fake outrage is really confusing.

  • EMILY POST

    They don’t consider it. A conspiracy because majority are all connected to each other one way or another it’s normal practice for that culture.
    Doesn’t dismiss the fact that the people making it don’t own it and they never bring up their communities where the influence comes from. They will bring up any other culture pick one before their own.

    Please tell me Diddy ain't the pappy! I'm thinking and hoping not. But it ain't far fetched with Diddy lol

    yep, but then cry about the community not supporting them.

    The bank enforcer... wow ???

    respectable perspective

  • Aadrii Foster

    *their necks

  • lovelygamour

    that surprised me but it makes sense. they need someone to watch the money and that would get in the dirt. high level bank people are thugs anyway. so this guy came to America and worked directly with the talent being an assistant , body guard, manager, just everything.

    the top artist should've got together and created their own label.
