Dear DiCaprio,

I am so sorry. Really sorry. But, after what I have seen today I cannot doubt Hollywood is against you and, in special, your worst enemy is a Latino… Shame of that director with just a few directing work and so many Spanish texts filmed…

I have seen how they have made you: climb mountains, let your body be drift by waters meanwhile you were covered by some fur on a swimming bad imitation of an otter. Of course, when you have always arrived at the top they had made you go down: in extreme ways, mostly crushed by a tree or with bigger falls.

However, your will for to survive is inspiring. After to try to emulate: Luke Skywalker himself, to crawl miles with a bad foot and without to be able of to sing or to say a word… You have found your way thanks to your dreams which were encouraging you all the time showing fragments of your religion and, the most important: your family.

Although the torture did not finish there. This evil Latino director has obliged you to see how the members of your family died, one by one, several times. He has even done that with your closest friends and the ones who were helping you on your personal challenges and goals.

You have been obliged to watch, in your worst conditions, how a band of wolves have attacked and threatened the life of an American bison. One of the most magnificent creatures which love to live in peace at its own pace without to disturb or to harm any other species. And how a partner lied to your face without you cannot even move or to do anything about it.

You have been stalking Tom for that, for miles in the middle of the woods, high mountains and a freezing cold which has left your beard frost. Still, you kept following him as an anxious stalker wolf which only thinks in to find its prey. And you did it just because someone wrote about it on a screenplay!

Hollywood has made you fight with a mama bear and survive just for only make you pass more cold, hungry, suffer and to make you climb more mountains and all for what? For to have finished stabbed by a dirty blade several times, in special at your back.

Yes, it is undeniable: Hollywood has something against you. In special, the Latino who for sure is a member of the mafia.

Maybe, for that, in the last moment of hope and a call for mercy to all the ones who have made you suffer, you have shown us a very close-up picture of your bright blue eyes looking directly at the camera. It is unfair. I know, I understand… But it is what happens when you believe you are The Wolf of Wall Street and you play with ones and others believing you are the f* King.

ALWAYS with love,

ELM
