Celebrities show outrage over Amazon rainforest fire

On Monday afternoon, the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil, went dark but it wasn’t some strange cosmic event but it was due to the single largest tropical rainforest in the world being destroyed. Many celebrities from across the world have been taking to social media to show their concern.

The horrific fire is burning in one of the world’s most crucial natural landmarks — but it’s taken three weeks for the world to really take note.

When a fire tore through Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris earlier this year, donations poured in across the world at such a rapid rate, as more than one billion were raised in just two days. The world was made aware of the catastrophe within three minutes of the first flame.

The world’s biggest rainforests have been burning from weeks but no one took notice till yesterday when it started to trend on social media.
