Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott attend the 2022 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 15, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Kylie Jenner has received criticism after bragging about her and Travis Scott’s two private jets amid the record-breaking heatwave overtaking Western Europe and parts of the US.

On Friday (15 July), the socialite posted a black-and-white Instagram photo of her and partner Scott hugging in front of their two private jets, alongside the caption: “You wanna take mine or yours?”

Below, in the comment section, fans have mocked Jenner for her “obnoxious” post, with many claiming it feels “out of touch.”

“Global warming who?” “Whose plane should we pollute the earth today” “your waste of gas emissions or mine?” with heart eyes. “But what About combating climate change” “Great for the environment!”

“girl what am I recycling for.” “But it’s us who must use paper straws” with a groaning face. “Why do I have to limit my meat consumption and use paper straws while the 1% gets to pump tons of carbon into the atmosphere for a day trip to Palm Springs?” “This is why we need to tax the rich.” “this post just called me poor.”

“This is so relatable Kylie!” “This isn’t the flex you think it is.” “And then hypocrisy global warming awareness posts.” “That carbon footprint be wild.” “Honestly so relatable” “Meanwhile I’m just trying to fill up my gas tank.” “READ THE ROOM KYLIE” “YEAH YOU GO AHEAD KYLIE USE THAT PRIVATE JET. Like 20% of the air pollution is from u kardashies and all ur friends lil jets.””As we choose between gas and meals.” “this is completely obnoxious and out of touch considering the current state of the economy for most of us.”

Jenner’s post comes amid exponentially high gas prices across the US due, in part, to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, many parts of the US are bracing for “dangerous and record-breaking heat,” joining the UK and other parts of Western European currently experiencing a major heatwave, which experts have attributed to the ongoing climate crisis.
