Jeff Bezos Calls Out Leonardo DiCaprio After Flirty Video Goes Viral
By: Christy Mathew
After a video of the Titanic star engaged in amorous dialogue with his girlfriend went viral online; Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has formally called out A-List actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
On the red carpet of the 2021 LACMA Art & Film Gala; a slew of high-profile celebrities wore expensive ensembles and mingled over cocktails; but no one predicted the encounter between Leo DiCaprio and Jeff Bezos’ girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez.
A short video of Leo, Bezos, and Sanchez at the Gala has gone viral; and it’s easy to see why. Sanchez seemed to be completely enamoured with DiCaprio as he speaks to several bystanders; a walking copy of his Gatsby performance from 2013.
Sanchez’s bemused expression has prompted jokes on the internet about the ever-charming Leo “taking Bezos’ girl,” with the comments being nothing short of hilarious. In an unexpected turn of events, it appears that Bezos has decided to join in on the memes; as evidenced by his amusing “challenge” to Leo on Twitter.
Bezos responded with a shirtless photo of himself leaning over a sign that screams “Danger!” His biceps were proudly displayed as he said, “Steep cliff, catastrophic drop”. “Leo, come here, I want to show you something…” Bezos wrote, making sure to tag the actor’s Twitter account.
This conversation has completely taken the internet by surprise, resulting in even more hilarious memes sweeping the internet. So far, Leo hasn’t responded to Bezos’s lighthearted “challenge”; (which isn’t surprising given that he uses his social media exclusively for environmental advocacy); — but in any case, it’s making for a good chuckle as two of the world’s most elite celebrities debate over a popular meme of themselves.
