Kylie Jenner was bashed on Instagram for flexing her and beau Travis Scott’s private jets amid record-breaking heatwaves in the US and Europe.
Over the weekend, the Kylie Skin owner posted a black-and-white Instagram photo of her and partner Scott embracing each other in front of their two private jets, alongside the caption: “You wanna take mine or yours?”
Below, in the comment section, fans mocked the 24-year-old millionaire for her “completely obnoxious” and “out of touch” post.
Jenner’s post comes amid exponentially high gas prices across the US due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Meanwhile, many parts of the country 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.
