Taylor Swift’s team has responded to backlash over a report that her private jet has racked up a whopping 170 flights this year, making her the celebrity with the most private jet CO2 emissions.
“Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals,” Swift’s spokesperson told Rolling Stone. “To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”
The report came from the digital marketing agency Yard, which examined the worst celebrity offenders when it comes to CO2 emissions from private jets, according to data from Twitter page @CelebJets that tracks the flights.
According to Yard, Swift tops the list, coming in above Jay-Z, Steven Spielberg, Drake and Kim Kardashian. “Her total flight emissions for the year come in at 8,293.54 tonnes, or 1,184.8 times more than the average person’s total annual emissions,” Yard said. According to the report, Swift’s shortest flight in 2022 was a 36-minute trip from Missouri to Nashville, and Yard noted the total was especially surprising given Swift isn’t on tour right now.
