Kylie Jenner is receiving immense flack on social media after boasting about deciding whether she should use her or Travis Scott’s private jet. It has since been revealed online that the reality star was taking the flight for a three-minute journey. Netizens were enraged that the celebrities were unmindful about the impact of their luxurious lifestyle on the climate change crisis.

Twitter account @CelebJets posted an image of Jenner’s plane route. It was revealed that the mother-of-two was traveling from Camarillo, California, to Van Nuys, California. The post said that their entire journey would have taken only three minutes. The rapper and reality star decided to take a flight instead of a 45-minute drive.

After the tweet went viral on social media, the account clarified that the flight took 17 minutes to reach the destination, not 3.

The caption of Jenner’s controversial Instagram post read:

“you wanna take mine or yours ?”

Netizens react to Kylie Jenner’s Instagram, saying it contributed to the heatwave in the UK

Netizens were upset after they noted that the private jet’s carbon dioxide emissions would have contributed to climate change. Many also stated on social media that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum contributed to the ongoing heatwave in the United Kingdom. However, it is unlikely that the 24-year-old is the sole reason for a country experiencing such severe weather conditions.

Many were also stunned by the celebrities willing to spend an exuberant amount of money for fuel when they could have just taken their four-wheelers to the location. With the lavish lifestyle the pair maintains, it would be safe to say that the two would have had an equally comfortable journey.

It can also be noted that social media users mostly blasted Kylie Jenner instead of holding her partner accountable. Some netizens pointed out that fellow internet users were being misogynistic.

Social media users also joked that they were trying to solve the climate crisis using eco-friendly materials while obnoxiously rich celebrities contribute to global warming.

A few tweets read:

This is not the first time Kylie Jenner has been called out for her opulent lifestyle. In 2019, the star came under fire for picking up her sister Kendall Jenner in a jet.

As mentioned before, the reality star has been targeted for her grand lifestyle previously too. Even her sisters have noticed her spending. In Keeping Up With the Kardashians, her sister Kim Kardashian noted how the youngest Kar-Jenner siblings hosts the most extravagant parties.

In May, Jenner became a topic of discussion online after she appeared in an episode alongside Kris Jenner. The duo was extremely uncomfortable about going to the grocery store and getting their car washed.
