Taylor Swift was seen deplaning at Hollywood Burbank Airport in Los Angeles on July 5, days before she was named as the biggest celebrity polluter.
Infact, in a shocking piece of news, a study by the sustainability marketing agency Yard tracked the carbon emissions of celebrities and found out that American pop star Taylor Swift was the top CO2e polluter of the year. It was not long before social media flooded with criticism, some taking a comical approach to Swift’s absurd figures in carbon emission.
Responding to the same, Swift’s team has deemed the criticism directed toward the 32-year-old as ‘blatantly incorrect’.
Her rep told E! Online, ”Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect”. As per Yard, the Me! singer’s plane took off 170 times in the first 200 days of 2022, emitting 8,293.54 metric tons of carbon dioxide.
Her private jet has been in the air for a collectively time of 16 total days in the past seven months—equivalent to what 1,184 average people would emit in a year. Twitter handle, @CelebJets, provided the data above. Taylor Swift‘s response to her private jet usage criticism did not sit well with many as the trolling only intensified with netizens now taking a dig at her renting out her jets to other people.
