Leonardo DiCaprio took home his first Oscar for “The Revenant” on Sunday night, and while fans and celebrities alike are rejoicing his win, some took notice of a photo from the ceremony that appears to show DiCaprio subtly showing his middle finger to the crowd.
Many were quick to notice the finger slip and started making jokes about the Academy for making DiCaprio wait over 20 years for his first Oscar win.
The image quickly started getting reblogged on Tumblr, and many people noticed it across social media.
