American influencer and businesswoman Kylie Jenner has sparked outrage on social media for using her private jet for ten-minute flights over the past week and being described, among other things, as a “full-time criminal climate”.
The 24-year-old billionaire was accused of flying for about 12 minutes instead of opting for the car, which would have taken her just under an hour to travel 63km including traffic.
Jenner flew her luxury private jet, affectionately nicknamed “Kylie Air,” a Bombardier Global 7500, from Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles to Camarillo Airfield in Ventura County, California on July 15. , according to the Celebrety Jets Twitter account, which follows celebrity flights around the world.
Roughly speaking, this is equivalent to driving from Montreal-Trudeau Airport to Saint-Mathieu-de-Beloeil Airport, a distance of approximately 60 km.
According to various CO2 emissions calculators, a Van Nuys-Camarillo flight in a Bombardier Global 7500 would emit an average of 0.3 tons of CO2, compared to 0.02 tons by car.
So that short ride through the air in California will have polluted almost 15 times more than a trip by car.
That’s not all! Celebrety Jets also followed Kylie Jenner’s first flight, which took place on the same day. This time from Palm Springs to Van Nuys, a 35 minute drive (0.93 tons of CO2)
On July 13, it was a 17-minute flight that the young mother needed, then a second 29-minute flight.
“Full-time climate criminal”
Kylie Jenner has also reacted strongly in recent days after posting to Instagram a photo of her and her lover, rapper Travis Scott, embracing between two private jets on an airport tarmac, with the caption, “Want a ride mine or yours?”
Let’s say the pot finally overflowed and it wasn’t long before social media began attacking one of the Kardashian-Jenner family heiresses.
“Yes, but I’m the wrong person to ask for a straw at Starbucks,” wrote one user wryly on Twitter.
“Girl you could have taken a frigging Uber,” tweeted another.
