"Kylie Jenner out here picking which colour private jet she wanna take today meanwhile I gotta chug my iced coffee before my straw becomes paper mache???? Explain."
Listen to this article
In case you didn't know, Kylie purchased her own private jet back in 2020 and had it customised in her favourite pink aesthetic. Page Six reported that the billionaire beauty mogul spent an estimated $50 million to $70 million on the Global Express Jet (they cost around $5 million to run per year as well…)
On Friday (July 15), Kylie posted a photo of herself embracing Travis while standing on an aeroplane runway on Instagram. In the background of the image are two private jets on both sides. Oh, and let's not forget the very expensive Rolls Royce also in frame too.
She captioned the relatable post: "You wanna take mine or yours?"
But people immediately noted that the couple had absolutely no regard for climate change considering how much CO2 emissions private jets release.
"Rich people unapologetically showing off their contributions to climate change by using a private jet to a two-hour car ride drive. Yeah, I would be embarrassed to post this," one person snapped.
Another added: "Oh but I must cycle to work , use paper straws, limit beef consumption in order to reduce my carbon footprint?"

Kylie Jenner alone with her jet made more co2 in 6 months than what I'd make in 3 years just by living life normally https://t.co/pAuD3E86ww— mel (@melislibrary) July 17, 2022

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 long. Her carbon footprint for one ten minute flight, is more than some people make in a year.— Sommer Ackerman (@lifewithsommer) July 17, 2022
But disabled people can't have easy access to plastic straws in public. https://t.co/abTNJ36ahj— Wagatwe Wanjuki 🇰🇪 🇧🇸 (@wagatwe) July 17, 2022
