Twitter pokes fun at Taylor Swift after ‘top celebrity CO2e polluter’ issue

Taylor Swift has become the target of hilarious tweets and memes in light of a recent report naming her the top celebrity polluter of carbon dioxide emissions (CO2e).

Swift topped the list of celebrities with the “worst private jet CO2 emissions,” according to a study published last July 29 by digital marketing agency Yard, with 170 flights emitting 8,293 metric tons of greenhouse gases, alongside Floyd Mayweather, Jay-Z, Steven Spielberg, Kim Kardashian, Oprah Winfrey, and Travis Scott.

Swift’s representative responded to the report by saying that the star’s frequent use of her Falcon 7X jet—one of two private planes owned by Swift—was caused by other people flying on the plane.
“Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect,” the singer’s representative said.

Although the study intended to show the dangers of private jet carbon emissions in general, it quickly turned into a fandom debate, with some defending Taylor Swift and others mocking the star’s new list-topping status.

Knowing social media, it’s impossible not to meme-ify celebrities’ issues; here are some hilarious memes we found:

Taylor Swift is a 32-year-old American pop singer-songwriter known for her songs about her real-life experiences. According to a report from The Sun, Swift is planning to surprise fans with her most experimental album yet. She released her most recent single, “Carolina,” last June 24, 2022.
