Kylie Jenner counts herself among the celebrities to own private jets, but fans seem to think she’s taken the privilege too far. The reality star faces the wrath of social media users – who called her a “climate criminal” — after the makeup mogul boasted about her and boyfriend Travis Scott’s private jets, only to be exposed for using hers for short flights.
According to that @CelebJets Twitter account, the reality star recently took a 40-mile flight from Camarillo to Van Nuys in Southern California, which would have been a 45-minute drive. The 17-minute flight was followed by a similar 29-minute flight from Van Nuys to Palm Springs, California.
The revelation comes after Jenner was criticized for brazenly sharing a black-and-white photo of her and Scott taking a moment to hug as they stood between two private jets on the tarmac. She captioned the moment, “Want to have mine or yours?” One person commented on Instagram, “But we have to use paper straws” with a tired face emoji, while another wrote, “Global warming who?”
Kylie Jenner provoked fans rather than delighted them
Kylie Jenner tried to brag about her jet set life on her latest Instagram profile, but it’s safe to say that fans weren’t here for that. Social media users were more provoked than charmed, with several users noting the huge carbon footprint required for the reality star’s lightning trip, as pointed out by Page Six.
“80% of people have never taken a plane and Kylie Jenner is out here taking regular 10 minute flights, 5 flights in the last week under 30 minutes, one was 3 minutes.” tweeted a user who identifies as an environmental activist. They added in a follow up tweet“Your carbon footprint for a 10-minute flight is more than some people make in a year.”
The vitriol didn’t end there, and Twitter users continue to slam the star for keeping out of touch with reality. “Kylie Jenner alone with her jet has produced more CO2 in 6 months than I would make in 3 years just living a normal life,” someone said wrotewhile another added: “This isn’t the flex you think it is.”
