The rich people are rich people-ing again.

Bravo

On Friday, Kylie Jenner posted this picture of her and Travis Scott hugging each other alongside private jets. I'll describe it to you, since Kylie made the post un-shareable on sites. It's basically Kylie and Travis embracing each other, framed by two private jets on both sides. And on the left side, is also a freakin' $300,000+ Rolls Royce. She captioned the photo, "You wanna take mine or yours?"

Anyway, this pretty out-of-touch photo did not come across well to fans. First, people called out the ostentatious display of wealth — especially during a time of inflation, when people are struggling.

"this post just called me poor"

"this is why we need to tax the rich"

Next, people sarcastically said how out-of-touch and un-relatable the post was:

"this is so relatable"

But even more so, people called out how environmentally unconscious the post was. Private jets pollute the air tremendously and are high in CO2 emissions.

"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"
@kyliejenner / Via instagram.com
"global warming who"
@kyliejenner / Via instagram.com
"maybe take neither"

One person summed it all up, saying, "Rich people unapologetically showing off their contributions to climate change by using a private jet to a two-hour car ride drive. Yeah, I would be embarrassed to post this."

Neither Kylie nor Travis have responded to the backlash, but we will update you if they do.
