Kylie Jenner has been criticized on social media for flaunting her wealth after she posted a photo of herself and Travis Scott in front of private jets.

On Saturday (July 16), the billionaire beauty mogul, 24, shared a black and white image of her and her boyfriend, 31, with two large aircrafts, as well as a Rolls-Royce, with the caption: "You wanna take mine or yours?"

In the picture, the couple, who've been dating since 2017, embraced each other with their four-year-old daughter Stormi Webster also in on the affectionate moment.

However, the post sparked a backlash as many of Jenner's followers took to the comments section to suggest her behavior was out of touch at a time when the climate crisis is continuing to worsen, and the rising costs of living are vital issues in the US, and around the globe.

Many fans on the social media platform took to the Kylie Cosmetics founder's page to express their valid opinions on the picture.

One user wrote: "Whos plane should we pollute the earth today? (sic)"

Another user said: "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 for a day trip to Palm Springs?"

A third chimed in and added: "But it’s us who must use paper straws?" A fourth joked: "Your waste of gas emissions or mine?"

This certainly isn't the first time the reality TV star faced backlash for showing off her elaborate wealth amid a global warming crisis.

Per the Daily Mail, last month, Jenner was pictured taking a quick 30-minute day trip to Palm Springs, California on her customized aircraft, which she bought in 2020 for a rumored $72.8 million.

Jenner was seen with her momager Kris Jenner, 66, and her boyfriend Corey Gamble on board her luxury jet, which had white leather seats embroidered with her initials.

The criticism came after users on social media realized that the average flight time from Los Angeles to Palm Springs is 49 minutes, with the time spent in the air just 30 minutes.
