In recent weeks, there has been a lot of discussion about the ways wealthy celebrities use private jets. These planes are crazy expensive, and their CO2 emissions are huge, so people get angry when they hear about someone like Kylie Jenner taking a 10-minute flight from one part of the Los Angeles area to another. The culprit is Drake. The Twitter account CelebJets, which tracks flights recorded by the private jets of famous teams, recently noted that Drake’s plane took a 14-minute flight from Toronto to Hamilton, Ontario. According to CelebJets, the jet fuel for that flight would have cost nearly $3,000 and would have released four tons of CO2 emissions.
The distance of that flight is 38 miles. It’s hard to imagine any situation when someone really does it need to For a 14 minute commute while everyone else is an hour drive away, Drake has come for some Cash Online.
Yesterday, Drake addressed all of that criticism in a very small way. An Instagram account called RealTorontoNewz posted Drake’s 14-minute journey, and Drake commented on this post. It looks like Drake’s comment has now been deleted, but Complex Drake reports, “These are just hauling planes to whatever airport they’re stowed at for anyone interested in logistics… Nobody takes that flight.”
Drake may have deleted this comment because people indicated he doesn’t issue Whether anyone takes that flight. If the plane lands in Toronto and then leaves for Hamilton, it’s because Drake didn’t want to fly to Hamilton and then get in the car the rest of the way. It still comes across as crazy behavior for the wealthy.
