Kylie Jenner came under fire recently for taking extremely short flights in her private jet and was branded by the internet as "a climate criminal". But apparently she's not the worst celeb offender.
According to new research, the celebrity who causes the most carbon dioxide emission through the use of gas-guzzling private jets is Taylor Swift.
New analysis from sustainability marketing company Yard ranks the celebrities whose private aircrafts have travelled the most so far this year and, as a result, caused the most pollution.
Since January the songbird has flown 170 times on her private aircraft, with the shortest flight lasting just 36 minutes and the longest taking about 80 minutes.
Basically, what Taylor's plane allegedly produced in just 200 days is equivalent to almost 1 185 times the average person's yearly emissions.
The pop star has been facing a fierce backlash as thousands of fans have headed online to criticise her for her excessive air travel, especially during a climate emergency.
One fan wrote on Reddit: “Holy s*** Taylor STAY HOME!”
A spokesperson for the singer tried to do damage control by telling BuzzFeed News, "Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect."
But that only seemed to add fuel to the fire with people quickly arguing in the site's comments section that whether she was present or not was beside the point.
One person even claimed her staff were attempting to "humanitarianise" the situation by trying to highlight her altruism so as to divert the focus from her responsibility.
According to TMZ, seeing how her PR team was failing her, one fan tried to defuse the situation.
Britt @taysrep89 claimed that Taylor made a significant donation to the environment.
She wrote, "TAYLOR SWIFT JUST OFFERED TO DONATE 10K TO MY ENVIRONMENT ORGANIZATION?? THIS IS BIGGER THAN ALL OUR DONATIONS FROM THE PAST 3 MONTHS THANK YOU SO MUCH @taylorswift13."
But one person expressed that whether the donation was true or not, it still did not lower Taylor's personal carbon footprint.
Meanwhile Kylie Jenner must have heaved a sigh of relief that she wasn't in the top 10 of the worst celeb offenders. Instead, she ranked in between Jim Carey and Tom Cruise at number 19.
Her boyfriend and sister were in the top 10, though.
But even so, Travis Scott and Kim Kardashian’s combined emissions are still far lower than Taylor's.
Since the release of the findings, Taylor has increased her CO2 emissions by 25 tons in only three days.
Her plane made two cross-country trips, first flying from California to New York before returning to her home to Nashville, a total flight time of 6 hours and 15 minutes, according to the automated Twitter account Celebrity Jets, which updates its followers on aircraft movements based on data from ADS-B Exchange.
Taylor is yet to issue any more statements regarding the matter.
