Kylie Jenner may own 15 luxury cars, but she chose to take a private jet instead for her trip last week from Camarillo to Van Nuys in California.
The getaway, initially estimated by the Twitter account @CelebJets as three-minutes long, ended up spanning 17 minutes, which the account clarified as if that makes it better. For comparison, the drive between Camarillo and Van Nuys runs around 45 minutes long.
While we’re all for efficiency and avoiding Los Angeles traffic, Jenner's shortcut may have gone a bit too far. The carbon footprint of a private jet flight grossly outweighs that of a car, and for us regular people on land trying to cut down on carbon emissions in the face of imminent climate disaster, the beauty billionaire's flight felt like a slap in the face.
Over the weekend, Jenner posted a photo on Instagram of herself and her partner, Travis Scott, embracing between two private jets . “you wanna take mine or yours?” she wrote.
“Kylie Jenner truly is one of the worst celebrities out there not her flexing her absolute disregard for the planet,” one person wrote on Twitter .
