Hypocritical Celebrities with the Biggest Carbon Footprints

A lot of celebrities are into the theory of man-made climate change. But while they lecture the public on their carbon usage, a list of the worst celebrity carbon footprint offenders has come to light.

The marketing agency Yard released a study showing which celebrity elites are the worst offenders when flying in their private jets.

Taylor Swift, Floyd Mayweather and Jay-Z are a few that topped the list. Liberal singer Swift claimed the title of being the biggest frequent private flier as she had “a total of 170 flights on her private jet since January,” according to Yard.

The study found that Swift stacked up a massive 22,923 minutes while in the air. To try and combat the negative press, Swift’s publicity team tried to backpedal. “Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect,” her team said, according to TMZ.

Statistics show that her flight emissions are 1,184.8 times more than the average person’s.

Swift has been a public hater of former President Donald Trump and is known for backing Democrat political candidates.

The former renowned boxer, Floyd Mayweather, comes in at number 2 of the worst carbon offenders. Liberal rapper Jay-Z also ranks high on the list due to frequent flights on his private jet.

All of the Kardashian and Jenner clan also ranked high. Kylie Jenner received pushback after sharing a picture of her and her boyfriend standing next to their private jets, captioning it, “you wanna take mine or yours?”

Other billionaire celebrities to make the list include Kim Kardashian and Oprah Winfrey.

The study shows that celebrities frequently take private flights for very short flights instead of either driving or flying commercial.

“Here at Yard, we feel strongly that it’s our collective responsibility to understand the impact of such choices,” Yard wrote on its website.

“It’s easy to get lost in the dazzling lives of the rich and famous, but unfortunately, they’re a massive part of the CO2e problem we have with the aviation industry,” Yard continued.
