Kylie Jenner Accused Of Being A ‘Full-Time Climate Criminal’ After Her Private Jet Was Found Taking Three-Minute Flights
Kylie captioned the snap: “You wanna take mine or yours?” however, the reaction to her caption was less than enthusiastic.
The post actually went viral on Twitter, hailing Kylie “a full-time climate criminal.”
She was accused of “bragging” about “her absolute disregard for the planet” as the damage that private jets do to the planet was highlighted online.
Amid the backlash, a few deeper into Kylie’s flight history and discovered that her jet has been used for flights as short as three minutes.
And while it is not confirmed if Kylie was on the plane, at the time, records show that it flew from Camarillo, California, to Van Nuys, California, earlier this month.
The journey would have taken just 40 minutes by car.
Kylie’s jet also takes regular flights amounting to less than 15 minutes each, which further angered her followers and fans.

Many were quick to discuss what they did in their own life to limit their carbon footprint compared to celebrities who seem to not think twice about their actions.
Private jets have been found to emit a whopping total of two tons of CO2 in just one hour.
The Transport & Environment reported in May 2021 that they are 5 to 14 times more polluting than commercial planes.

“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,” one person tweeted.
Another reacted to Kylie’s Instagram post by writing: “Kylie Jenner truly is one of the worst celebrities out there. Not her flexing her absolute disregard for the planet.”
“Famous people are so OUT of touch with reality, like, how did she not think she’d get backlash for that,” a third said. “@KylieJenner read the room. Our planet is dying, climate change is a real issue.”
