Taylor Swift’s Rep Defends Use of Private Jets, Claims She’s ‘Lenting’ It

Taylor Swift came under fire on Friday after she was named the celebrity with the worst CO2 emissions from private planes – and the 32-year-old singer’s representative flips back in the rankings.

“Taylor’s jet is regularly lent to other individuals,” her spokesperson told BuzzFeed News on Monday.

“It is utterly inaccurate to attribute most or all of these trips to her.”

The Grammy winner was sued by analytics firm Yard for having completed 170 flights since January and reportedly emitted more than 800 tons of carbon.

Many Twitter users argued Monday that Swift is still at fault for her top spot, even if other people use the plane.

“I love how you spread the blame for your private jet. Allowing other people to use it increases the carbon footprint,” wrote one social media user. “It’s not enough that you’re a hypocrite, but you encourage others to be the same. How’s that? Okay?”

Another added: “The defense of Taylor Swift’s carbon footprint as ‘I rent out my plane’ is so ridiculous. It’s your plane. I don’t care if you don’t fly it that often (insert BS here) or that others fly in, you are still emitting mega carbon and other pollutants.”

Kylie Jenner, Drake and other celebrities have also sparked outrage over their frequent use of private jets.

The 24-year-old “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” posted a photo of herself and Travis Scott standing between their planes on July 15, writing, “Will you take mine or yours?”

The social media upload — and the makeup mogul’s flight history — led many to call her a “climate criminal,” but the reality star has yet to address the backlash.

Drake, for his part, defended a recent 14-minute flight on Instagram on Wednesday.

“These are just those planes that move planes to the airport where they are stored for anyone interested in logistics,” the 35-year-old rapper responded to a post criticizing him. “No one takes that flight.”
