Drake has responded to criticism that he took a 14 minute plane ride via a private jet — which resulted in a huge amount of CO2 emissions being created.
According to Twitter account CelebJets, the Canadian rapper flew his private Boeing 767, dubbed “Air Drake,” from Toronto Pearson Airport to Hamilton International Airport on July 18th. The 38-mile flight lasted approximately 14 minutes and cost roughly $2,729 worth of fuel.
He wrote via Instagram, “This is just them moving planes to whatever airport they are being stored at, for anyone who was interested in the logistics.” He added, “Nobody takes that flight.”
Earlier this month, Kylie Jenner was also dragged after taking a flight that lasted just 17 minutes. One person on social media called her out for her “absolute disregard for the planet” and for being a “full time climate criminal.” However, it also appears that her plane was being parked.
Other celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Floyd Mayweather, and Tom Cruise have also been criticized for taking brief flights.
