Kylie Jenner is coming under fire this week for her use of a private jet for journeys as short as three minutes. 

The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan is facing harsh critics for taking a 12-minute flight on her private jet named Kylie Air. 

Fans were particularly upset because she only traveled 26 miles. The journey would have taken just 39 minutes by car. 

To make matters worse, the 24-year-old makeup mogul reportedly drove 30 minutes in the opposite direction to her destination, to reach the Van Nuys airport. If she had opted to drive directly, she would have reached her arrival point 9 minutes after she got to the airport. 

But she opted to drive 30 minutes, and take a 12-minute flight, to avoid a 39-minute car ride.

Granted, Los Angeles traffic can be horrible, but critics are being particularly hard on Kylie and are dubbing her a hypocrite.

Kylie Jenner slammed as tone deaf and classless for excessive use of private jet

The backlash has been particularly hard because the US is facing rising gas prices, wildfires, and unprecedented heat waves.

On Twitter user wrote: Europe is on fire, meanwhile Kylie Jenner is taking 15-minute trips in her private jet. I could recycle everything, buy all my clothes second-hand, compost, and grow my own food for the rest of my life and it wouldn’t even begin to offset the footprint from one of her flights.
