Based on that sweatshirt, the only ghosts Kanye West or Kim Kardashian will be seeing from here on out are the ghosts of not looking as obnoxious as possible. Because you could say that officially died after their latest rich asshole stunt.
Kim and Kanye recently took a trip to Japan. Poor Japan. First Godzilla, now these two monsters? Kim kicked off their trip by posting a series of Instagram Stories in which she showed off how they got to Japan. They rented a private 747. Kim claims she had no idea you could rent out a jet that big, and that it’s the only way Kanye will fly now.
People points out that Air Force One is also a Boeing 747. It’s bigger than Kim’s fake ass, has two levels of seating, uses four engines, and can accommodate between 416 to 660 passengers (depending on which configuration you’re dealing with). According to How Stuff Works, a 747 uses about a gallon of fuel every second. A 10-hour flight might see 36,000 gallons of fuel being used up.
A flight from Los Angeles to Tokyo usually takes about 12 hours, which is a lot of fuel to burn. Judging by Kim’s IG Stories, it looks like on the plane was just herself, Kanye, their trainer, and a couple of entourage members.
People on the internet thought that flying private in a plane that guzzles fuel and could carry the population of a small village was gross.
Kim Kardashian posted on her story about flying on a private 747.
All I’m thinking is what a waste of jet fuel, resources, environmental harm, etc etc etc.
Smh. So obnoxious and unnecessary.

I’m missing the connection. @KimKardashian and @kanyewest donate 500000$ to wildfire relief efforts, but take a 747 airplane privately. Will someone explain to them how the climate crisis work? Please?

@KimKardashian @kanyewest renting an entire 747 for themselves is so unbelievably wasteful it makes me sick. Leaving a much larger carbon footprint than they need to. You have the power and wealth to travel sustainably, and instead you do the opposite.For what? An instagram flex?

What all those Twitter haters are forgetting is that Kim and Kanye needed to upgrade from their sad, tiny little chartered jets of trips past to that 747. The 747 is big enough to transport both their egos. Plus, it’s a safety issue. I’m sure Kim and Kanye dangerously decrease the cabin pressure with every dumb sentence that leaves their mouths.
