Kim Kardashian (38) has inflicted bad blood on thousands of people. The reason? She unveiled with images showing how she uses a Boeing 747 as a private plane. A device that normally transports about 660 passengers. “Disgusting”, fans react now indignantly. They point to the enormous harmful impact on climate and the environment.
That reality star Kim Kardashian does not fly in economy, of course, knows everyone. On Instagram she shares photos or videos from one or the other jet with the regularity of a clock. Logical, too, if you have to go to this as much as possible. But now that she has put a whole Boeing 747 into use, many of her fans react with great indignation.
The images that Kim shared show how she, the other half of Kanye and a handful of people, including her personal trainer, discover the plane. She shows the multiple bedrooms and the dining area. And is extremely enthusiastic that she is allowed to use t
he Boeing. “I myself did not know this existed,” she shows off. She also films the “endless” empty rows of chairs. “We just take our own 747, no big deal”, she says laconically about it.
Storm of criticism
After Kim shared the images she was overwhelmed by criticism. Many people cannot understand that a handful of people occupy an entire plane. “I cannot believe that Kim and Kanye are ONLY on a 747. A double-decker that normally accommodates 660 passengers. It is clear that they do not care at all about global warming or the fires that had burned down their homes, were they not private firefighters,” writes someone. Or also: “I do not see the connection. Kim and Kanye donate $500,000 for the victims of the forest fires. But take a Boeing 747 as a private plane. Can someone please explain how climate change works? Please?”
Cannot believe Kim and Kanye are on a 747 plane BY THEMSELVES. A double decker plane that usually takes up to 660 passengers!?! They clearly don’t give 2 shits about global warming or the forest fires that would have burnt their house down if it wasn’t for private firefighters 😤

I’m missing the connection. @KimKardashian and @kanyewest donate 500000$ to wildfire relief efforts, but take a 747 airplane privately. Will someone explain to them how the climate crisis work? Please?

There is about 6,000 homeless people in Chicago. Think about all the meals or warm clothing Kanye could have gave to his home city to help those in need.

Kim Kardashian posted on her story about flying on a private 747.
All I’m thinking is what a waste of jet fuel, resources, environmental harm, etc etc etc.
Smh. So obnoxious and unnecessary.

I don’t know the circumstances of why Kim flew on a private 747 (and she has the entire to do so) but in my head I’m just like: CARBON FOOTPRINT
Like, the amount of gas it takes to flight that thing is surreal and it all just seems crazy unnecessary to me…

@KimKardashian @kanyewest renting an entire 747 for themselves is so unbelievably wasteful it makes me sick. Leaving a much larger carbon footprint than they need to. You have the power and wealth to travel sustainably, and instead you do the opposite.For what? An instagram flex?

Can someone calculate the carbon footprint of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West taking an EMPTY “luxury 747” to some far flung location? Seating capacity: 660.

We’re all here with reusable bottles and refusing plastic bags, whilst Kim and Kanye are taking private 747’s. Ludicrous. 🤦🏻♀️🙄 pic.twitter.com/uoPc9f94PY
