Leonardo DiCaprio is on Instagram, y’all! And his very first post puts all of ours to shame, since it features Leo’s face and promotes environmentalism.

If you dig deep within your subconscious and attempt to remember the first Instagram photo you ever posted, was it awesome? Probably not. Most of us launched our accounts with cute selfies or food snaps, but not Leonardo DiCaprio. When this guy does social media, he does it big.
DiCaprio posted his very first Instagram on Tuesday and he kicked it off with a casual photo of himself with United Nations’ Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Like it’s nothing! Just another day in the life of Leo…
The caption read, “Today, I have the privilege to speak at the United Nations #Climate2014 Summit where world leaders are expected to announce the bold steps they will take to tackle climate change. Thank you Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.”
No, thank you, Leo. The actor looked very dapper (and a little overgrown) at the summit, speaking on behalf of Mother Earth and his non-profit organisation dedicated to global environmental preservation. It’s a small wonder DiCaprio was recently appointed as the United Nations Messenger of Peace — which kind of sounds like a title for a baby angel — since he has been devoting all of his time to environmentalism for a while now.
Thanks to DiCaprio, we can now look at our first Instagram of the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte and cry at its triviality… We have failed. We really need to step up our game and post meaningful things, but after the Pumpkin Spice Latte season is over. Obviously.
