Twitter – After Kim Kardashian posted a video of the private Boeing 747 she and her husband Kanye West were taking overseas, Twitter quickly pounced on the couple for flaunting their wealth. The double-decker plane boasts a luxurious movie theater, workout area and sizable master bedroom.
According to a Twitter post from West Palm Jets, the plane can seat 660 people.

As the reality television star walked around the jet, she dictated what she was seeing.
“No big deal, just taking a private 747,” Kardashian says in the clip. “This is how he does it now. Only 747s. Private. I’ve never even heard of this but, whatever. Just a room for the long flight. Pretty insane. So this is what a private 747 is like you guys. I’ve never been on one before so I’m like, ‘Oh my god there’s bedrooms everywhere.’
“No big deal. Just like a chill room. This is, like, endless. We actually brought our trainer on the flight since it’s so long so we can workout here. This is crazy.”
But Twitter wasn’t impressed. Many people were quick to point out that taking such a massive jet is actually detrimental to the environment. Considering the couple just donated $500,000 to help the California wildfire relief efforts, people couldn’t help but to scoff at their contradictory behavior.
Check out some of the reactions below.
The same week the climate report is released @KimKardashian and @kanyewest fly a freaking 747 jumbo jet privately. This is like finding out your prediabetic and then buying Costco sized candy bags. #wegottadobetter

Can someone calculate the carbon footprint of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West taking an EMPTY "luxury 747" to some far flung location? Seating capacity: 660.

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?

Dear @KimKardashian & @kanyewest. You just boarded a private(!)747 for a 'long flight'. How much did it cost you, 2-3 million dollars? Maybe it would be fair if you donated an equivalent amount to help the climate recover from the several hundred tonnes(!) of CO2 you just caused pic.twitter.com/bFNxJrFtqj

https://t.co/4zEPyhem7b There you go, socially conscious Kanye; spend that money on being Trump arrogant. Evidence indicates serious narcissistic personality w/ need for big phallic symbol to suggest potency; money can't buy common sense. @NBCnews @CNN @CBSnews @MSNBC

This is pretty clearly Sheldon Adelson's 747sp that he leases to Las Vegas Sands and keeps in Las Vegas.
Probably just a coincidence but interesting that Kanye is now flying around on a plane owned by Trump's biggest donor. https://t.co/ICNiRLzJwb
