A representative for Taylor Swift has defended the left-wing pop icon in the face of climate activists raging over her reported 170 private jet flights this year alone, claiming that the Shake It Off singer regularly loans the plane out to other people.
“Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals,” a spokesperson for Taylor Swift told TMZ. “To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”
Over the weekend, backlash erupted online when the sustainable marketing agency Yard published “cutting-edge data” on the celebrities with the “worst private jet Co2 emissions” in 2022. According to the research, Swift’s private jet flew 170 times this year with an average time of 80 minutes.
