Leonardo DiCaprio, Nicki Minaj, Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda, & MORE Top TIME's '100 Most Influential People' — See The Full List!
So it's no surprise the iconic actor made Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People" list!
The Revenant star is featured on one of six special covers celebrating the list — along with fellow influentials Nicki Minaj, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, Quantico actress Priyanka Chopra, Hamilton star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, and International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde!
On Thursday, Time revealed the coveted list, which featured everyone from U.S. presidential candidates (Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Bernie Sanders), Hollywood stars, (Melissa McCarthy, Idris Elba, and Creed director Ryan Coogler), to everyone in between!
A lot influentials weren't surprising — powerhouse names like
Mark Zuckerberg has very strong convictions!
At the F8 developer's conference in San Fransisco this past Tuesday, Mark delivered his 10 year plan for Facebook, which clearly doesn't include Donald Trump. In fact, Zuckerberg declared that we need "bridges" opposed to walls, a direct jab at the presidential hopeful!
Essentially, M.Z. expressed his fears that the world is focusing its shift from a unified perspective to a more hostile one. Based off his speech, it's obvious the new dad feels like Trump isn't helping the situation.
Speaking on his plans for the future and political leanings, Mark expressed:
"As I look around and as I travel around the world, I'm starting to see people and nations turning inward, against this idea of a connected world and a global community. I hear fearful voices calling for building walls and distancing people they label as others. For blocking free expression, for slowing immigration, reducing trade, and in some cases around the world even cutting access to the internet. Instead of building walls, we can help build bridges. Instead of dividing people, we can connect people."
As for how the former Harvard student plans to "connect people", he intends to launch more advanced messenger apps amongst other innovations. It doesn't hurt that FB's platform is super inclusive either!

It looks like Kanye West just got his answer!
Just a few days after West begged Mark Zuckerberg for money to absolve his $53 million dollars in debt, he responded (sorta) in a hilarious way. Let's just say the chances of Zuck loaning the rapper money for "dope" ideas probably isn't going to happen…
Here's how it went down — a user on Facebook posted a dig about Yeezy essentially saying it was dumb of him to ask the CEO of FB for money on TWITTER. To add insult to injury, Mr. Zuckerberg liked the shady message!

There may be hope for Kanye West yet!
However, he's since clarified that though he's still technically wealthy he doesn't have the funds for everything he'd like to do in the world. And it seems that his fans have heard his plea as the've set up a GoFundMe account to help Yeezy with his financial woes.

Kanye West is getting an early start!
Well, on Tuesday, he stayed true to his word and taking to Twitter set the groundwork of his views on the education system in the US!
Considering the 38-year-old dropped out of college before eventually receiving an honorary doctorate months ago, it really only makes sense he would want to speak out on it!
He kicked it off by sharing a story:
