Did Chris Hemsworth use fleets of water trucks for $1 million garden in his mega-mansion while Australia is riddled with drought and bushfires?
Hemsworth, who usually employs wit to take down rumors about his personal life, was infuriated by the allegations and took to Instagram to slam Daily Mail, who had repurposed Sydney Morning Herald's article to single out Hemsworth and his family.
Australia has been riddled with bush fires and drought since September 2019, with numerous and intense bushfires plaguing many parts of the country, including the Gondwanan rainforest remnants, Mount Nothofagus National Park and Nightcap National Park. These conditions have intensified the call of attention to climate change and environmental preservation, and yet, Hollywood star Chris Hemsworth is taking the situation all too lightly or worse he is apathetic towards it, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
According to the new portal, Hemsworth had arranged for a fleet of water trucks to arrive at his $20 million coastal home in Byron this month. He had moved into the “mega-mansion” with his wife Elsa Pataky and their three children recently and the locals have reportedly raised their eyebrows about the amount of water his million-dollar-gardens would require. Water prices have tripled in recent months, says the Sydney Morning Herald, commenting on how Hemsworth is able to afford it thanks to the millions he rakes from his Hollywood career.
Hemsworth, who usually employs wit to take down rumors about his personal life, was infuriated by the allegations and took to Instagram to slam Daily Mail Australia, who had repurposed Herald Sun's article to single out Hemsworth and his family. In his post, he wrote that "the water truck was purely for drinking water because like everyone in the region who is not connected to town water we have run out of potable water due to the drought. NONE of my garden is fed by drinking water."
He also went on to accuse the news outlet of "adding more distress to an already brutal situation" that his entire country is dealing with and added a "Merry Xmas" for good measure. Since the post, Daily Mail has since put out a new article, where they mentioned Hemsworth's side of the story.
