The Kardashians are no stranger to receiving backlash over their potentially negative environmental impact. Kylie Jenner, for example, is known for flying her private jet to very close destinations, despite its impact on the environment. Jenner recently flew 17 minutes instead of driving 45 minutes, according to Forbes, and doesn’t seem to feel guilty, which she often does, despite the fact that private jet emissions are incredibly damaging to our climate. BuzzFeed News reports that individuals should limit themselves to 2.3 tons of carbon dioxide per year, but private jets emit that amount in just one hour.
As a result, Jenner was branded a “climate criminal.” social media. After it was reported that she had taken a three-minute flight, one user tweeted answered“No matter how rich you are – nothing justifies that. Pure legitimate and selfish behavior.” According to the Independent, Kim Kardashian is also among the list of celebrities who pollute the environment by also taking remarkably short flights on their private jet.
social media users were criticize the Kardashian-Jenners for neglecting the environment by putting themselves above the safety of the planet for quite some time. Now the popular family is under fire again.
The Kardashians seem to be ignoring the drought in California
California is currently experiencing a severe drought, but that doesn’t seem to be affecting the Kardashians’ lives. Kim and Kourtney Kardashian are now among 2,000 people accused of violating current California water use rules. According to the Los Angeles Times, the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District sisters received “exceedance notices.” The notice said they had exceeded their water budgets at least four times since a drought emergency was declared in late 2021.
As a result of their overage, Kim and Kourtney are able to have flow restrictors installed on their properties. These devices can stop sprinklers and cause showers to run only after they reduce their water pressure. According to Us Weekly, Kim K exceeded her monthly water budget by 232,000 gallons in June, while Kourtney exceeded hers by 101,000 gallons. This year marks Southern California’s strictest water restrictions and the state’s driest time on record.
Of course, the social media users are not silent about it. A person tweeted“Between Kim Kardashian using all that water and her sister taking those 10 minute flights, these sisters are wasteful, selfish climate criminals.” Another simply questioned“Why does Kim Kardashian think she’s entitled to more water than any other resident during this drought?” It’s unclear if flow restrictors will ever actually be installed for the Kardashians, but fans are demanding they face any kind of consequences have to.
