Kylie Jenner Slammed For Taking 3-Minute Flight On Private Jet

Kylie Jenner has sparked a heated debate about climate change after it was revealed she took a three-minute trip on a private jet.

And to make matters worse, she also posted a snap on Instagram bragging about her private aircrafts over the weekend.

The 24-year-old shared an aesthetically pleasing black and white photo of her partner Travis Scott embracing her as the couple stood in between their two private jets.

"You wanna take mine or yours," the Kylie Cosmetics founder captioned the post, which has since received 8 million likes and over 32,000 comments as of Monday (18 July).

While the post was seemingly meant to be a tongue-in-cheek expression of wealth from the young socialite and her rapper beau, countless people are outraged as the world becomes more aware of the impact private jets have on the ongoing climate crisis.

All flights produce greenhouse gases, mainly carbon dioxide from burning fuel, which contributes to global warming.

According to the BBC, private jets ‘generally produce significantly more emissions per passenger than commercial flights’.

A large part of Western Europe is also experiencing a record breaking heatwave, climate change as a result of human behaviour could lead to more heatwaves in the future.

One Twitter user shared an image from the account CelebrityJets, which tracks the flights taken aboard celebrity private aircrafts.

The image showed a trip Jenner made on 12 July, which took just three minutes from Camarillo, California to Van Nuys Airport.

"Just remembered how Kylie Jenner uses her private jet to make 3 minute flights," the tweet accompanying the image read.

In response, another Twitter user pointed out that it was only a 40 minute drive between the two destinations.

On the other hand, some social media users claimed that the flight was more likely to be an empty maintenance flight, made in order to reposition the plane for a longer journey.

Tyla has approached Kylie Jenner's representatives for comment.

The reaction on social media to the posts were mixed. "Ngl [sic], learning that Kylie Jenner takes her private jet for 3 minute flights has kind of sent me off the deep end," one Twitter user confessed.

Another Twitter user made a reference to people switching to paper straws to help the environment in a tweet which reads: "Kylie Jenner out here picking which colour private jet she wanna take today meanwhile I gotta chug my iced coffee before my straw becomes [Papier-mâché]???? explain."

However other Twitter users called out those for only caring about climate change as a means to criticise Kylie.

"There are so many problems in the World and people are fighting about Kylie Jenner flexing her and her bf's [sic] private jets," one person said. "And suddenly people are thinking about climate change, Who would own a private jet and not fly in it? Lmaooo [sic] y'all so mad."

Similarly, another social media user wrote: "Kylie Jenner posts a pic of her and her man's private jet and all of a sudden everyone is worried about the environment".

The couple make regular trips on their private jets. The reality TV star and the Sicko Mode rapper flew in her Bombardier Global 7500 aircraft with their two children, four-year-old Stormi and their yet-to-be-publicly-renamed son, five months, just last month, along with her mother Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble from Calabasas to Palm Springs.

The journey was just 140 miles and took only 30 minutes.
