Campaign retracts Leonardo DiCaprio's endorsement of anti-development measure

The campaign for a March ballot measure that supporters say would restrict out-of-scale development throughout Los Angeles received a boost this summer when Hollywood actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio backed the initiative. 

Except, it turns out, he didn’t. 

Two months after the actor’s name was first associated with the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative, a representative for DiCaprio said the actor is neutral on the measure. 

Confusion over DiCaprio’s endorsement was reported earlier by Curbed LA and Vox.

The campaign director for the ballot measure took responsibility for the endorsement flap. 

“I exchanged a number of emails with his publicists in August and I thought we had received final word, in this exchange, confirming his support for the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative,” Jill Stewart said in a statement. “I apparently misunderstood. We apologize to Mr. DiCaprio for this misunderstanding.”
