The World Government Summit is taking place in Dubai right now.

The annual meeting, which hosts over 150  countries, invites governments from all over the world to open a dialogue discussing futurism, technology and innovation which this year has been attended by Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, and French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe

The summit is in full swing at the Souk Madinat, and a speech about climate change made by US actor Robert De Niro is causing massive debate.

He's here to help combat climate change

He wants to improve sustainability

He spoke to a crowded room and slammed the American climate change policy

He thanked the UAE for their sustainable work and said the UAE is an example to the rest of the world, which was warmly received by the audience.

However his comments about the US are causing much debate on Twitter..

In the speech he also said “I flew here last night from a backward country” ... “It is a place where science once reigned. It has been replaced by ignorance."

This got mixed reviews...

While some agree

Others feel his speech was pointless

And they're not holding back

Ouch...Mainly because they think celebrities should keep their opinions to themselves
