Kylie Jenner has been called a “climate criminal” after taking a three-minute flight…

advertisement

Since launching her infamous lip kits, Kylie Jenner has gone from strength to strength in her billionaire game…

  via Getty Images  

But people are slowly but surely noticing a few things…

Scroll down for the full story!

advertisement

Now, the Kardashian/Jenner clan is quite well known.

  via Getty Images  

They’ve all starred in one of the most successful reality shows of all time and each of the sisters has a massive influence on social media.

advertisement

They’ve most certainly climbed their way to the top of the ladder.

  via Getty Images  

They’re truly impressive entrepreneurs and businesswomen. Whatever you think about them, you can’t deny that they’ve done well for themselves.

advertisement

Because they’ve not always been as impressive as they are now.

Sure, they’ve always had an element of wealth and fame — but back when Keeping Up With The Kardashians started, the sisters certainly weren’t the biggest Hollywood success story.

advertisement

No matter what people have had to say in the past…

  via Getty Images  

More and more, the family is being respected as major players, particularly in the realms of fashion and beauty.

advertisement

We hear something new about their lives every day.

  via Getty Images  

The Kardashian-Jenners are never far from the headlines.

advertisement

And they do get their fair share of criticism.

  via Getty Images  

Yep, fans are continually calling out the sisters for donning culturally appropriating hairstyles such as cornrows.

advertisement

The famous family is often very open about the plastic surgery they’ve had done, as well.

  via Getty Images  

But something that fans often point out is their excessive use of photoshop.

advertisement

1 person, in particular, is constantly making waves.

  via Getty Images  

The second eldest of the clan, Kim Kardashian.

advertisement

Who, despite what people think, is really quite clever.

  via Getty Images  

Similar to her younger sister, Kylie Jenner, the star now runs her highly successful beauty empire, KKW Beauty, and has established herself as a successful entrepreneur.

advertisement

She never fails to impress people, either.

  via Getty Images  

Never falling short of head-turning fashion moments.

advertisement

The reality star also reportedly began a 4-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco in 2019.

  via Getty Images  

And she will be taking the state’s exams in 2022 in order to qualify. So, it’s technically not law school, but California is one of the only states in which you can still take the bar exam and train to become a lawyer without a college or law school degree.

advertisement

Given the fact that she is hardly strapped for cash, and has 4 kids, a beauty empire, and prying paps on her plate…

  via Getty Images  

It’s pretty clear that she is passionate about her future law career.

advertisement

But, not everyone was on board.

  via Getty Images  

The general consensus was that she should “stay in her lane” and that anything that veers outside the beauty and fashion-related spectacle she has created from her reality TV fame, is totally unacceptable for her to pursue.

advertisement

Although, she has done some good for people with her law practice.

  via Getty Images  

She used her celebrity status for good and managed to successfully convince Donald Trump to commute the prison sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, a grandmother serving life in prison without parole for a non-violent drug crime, VOX reports.

advertisement

But that wasn’t all…

  via Getty Images  

The star quietly helped fund the “90 Days of Freedom” Campaign, which has helped free seventeen first-time nonviolent drug offenders and was even called by The White House to advise to help change the system of clemency.

advertisement

Despite her success, though, she has faced a lot of controversies.

  via Getty Images  

Remember when the star was accused of blackface?

advertisement

This came after the photo shoot was for 7Hollywood was released and her skin had been noticeably darkened.

  via Getty Images  

Whether it was spray tan, strange lighting, or overuse of photoshop, it’s not a stretch to say that Kim was unrecognizable.

advertisement

And, people always have a lot to say about her parenting techniques, too.

  via Getty Images  

Whether it’s letting her daughter, North, wear makeup or allowing her to wear hooped earrings — the parent-shamers are never far away.

advertisement

Whatever happens in the Kardashian clan, we hear about it.

  via Getty Images  

Kim can barely go a week without being in the headlines.

advertisement

And the past month has been no different since the billionaire beauty mogul shared what she did to fit into her dress for this year’s Met Gala.

  via Getty Images  

It’s pretty extreme.

advertisement

People have been sharing their opinions online after Kim revealed she lost sixteen pounds in twenty-one days…

  via Getty Images  

One angry Facebook user wrote: “I feel like it’s important for people, especially young women, to know this isn’t normal, healthy or attainable for the average person. That’s a weight loss of 5 pounds per week. Why are you praising such a rapid weight loss?”

advertisement

Another wrote: “This is such an unhealthy thing to be promoting it’s essentially glamorizing eating disorders. No garment of clothing is important enough to put your body through that kind of stress.”

  via Getty Images  

A third commented: “I like Kim K but she’s not an icon the way Marilyn is an ICON, maybe in 20 years but this dress should have stayed in an archive or museum, it should not have been worn.”

advertisement

By now, everyone knows that Kim Kardashian wore Marilyn Monroe’s famous dress.

  via Getty Images  

The dress she wore when she sang “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to JFK. 

advertisement

According to an interview with La La Anthony on the red carpet, Kim tried the dress on just 3 weeks before the event and it didn’t fit…

  via Getty Images  

So she went to extremes to fit into the classic gown, losing sixteen pounds in the weeks leading up to the Gala.

advertisement

Now, it should go without saying, that isn’t a healthy thing to do, and Kim will have had experts helping with her nutrition and exercise.

  via Getty Images  

But it’s not only her diet that received backlash.

advertisement

It was the fact she wore the dress in the first place.

  via Getty Images  

Some even called it “creepy.”

advertisement

But the majority were shocked that such a historically prominent dress was allowed to be worn again…

  via Getty Images  

Due to the damage that could have been caused to it.

advertisement

Even fashion designer Bob Mackie spoke out…

  via Getty Images  

Mackie famously drew the sketch for the original gown when he was an assistant to Jean Louis.

advertisement

“I thought it was a big mistake,” he admitted about Kim’s dress choice.

  via Getty Images  

Mackie told EW: “[Marilyn] was a goddess. A crazy goddess, but a goddess. She was just fabulous. Nobody photographs like that. And it was done for her. It was designed for her. Nobody else should be seen in that dress.”

advertisement

Turner Classic Movies host Alicia Malone also spoke about the impact on the dress, after talking with Mackie…

  via Getty Images  

“There are all the issues with the actual preservation of the dress and things like oxygen can affect a dress,” she explains. “Usually, these outfits are kept very much in controlled environments and we see that with the Met. The Costume Institute is so careful about how they are handling these historic items. So, it was quite alarming that she was able to wear it. I personally wish she wore a replica instead of the real thing.”

advertisement

She continued: “You can draw many parallels between Marilyn Monroe and Kim Kardashian in the way that they’re both very publicity savvy.”

  via Getty Images  

“Of course, this was very much a publicity stunt that worked for Kim Kardashian. Marilyn Monroe was someone who also loved to create sensation, as she did with that naked dress. Also, they are women who have changed the ideal beauty of the moment. Marilyn Monroe, when she came in her curves became very popular during the 1950s. And we see a lot of young women trying to look like Kim Kardashian. For better or worse, she’s changed the ideal body shape for women.”

advertisement

Malone states that Monroe was “such a mess of contradictions,” and that “she’s not easy to place in a box and that’s why she has that appeal.”

  via Getty Images  

She concluded: “I don’t know what Kim Kardashian sees in Marilyn herself or how much she knows about her history. But definitely, now, Kim will be tied to that dress as Marilyn is — so it’ll be the Marilyn Monroe dress that Kim Kardashian also wore to the Met Gala.”

advertisement

And their comments certainly had elements of truth, as new pictures seem to claim that Monroe’s famous dress was damaged that night…

  via Getty Images  

The Marilyn Monroe Collection took to Instagram, sharing photos of the dress they claim is now on display at Ripley’s Believe It or Not!

advertisement

They said the dress had “missing crystals,” with some “left hanging by a thread.”

  via Getty Images  

The photos, which have since gone viral, were reportedly snapped on June 12, by ChadMichael Morrisette at the Hollywood location of the museum where the dress is displayed.

advertisement

The Marilyn Monroe Collection also commented on the state of the dress, writing: “So much for keeping ‘the integrity of the dress and the preservation.’ @ripleysbelieveitornot, was it worth it?”

  via Getty Images  

Back in May, Ripley’s wrote: “‘Great care was taken to preserve this piece of pop culture history.” Adding: “With input from garment conservationists, appraisers, and archivists, the garment’s condition was top priority. Believe It or Not! no alterations were to be made to the dress and Kim even changed into a replica after the red carpet!⁠”

advertisement

Despite their comments, the photos clearly show the dress has been compromised, whether that was before or after Kim wore it.

  via Getty Images  

However, Ripley’s spoke out again, claiming that Kim did not damage the dress that night.

advertisement

In a statement, they assured that they “can say with confidence” that Kim did not “cause damage” to the dress.

  via Getty Images  

The full statement posted on their Instagram said: “Kim Kardashian’s walk up the Metropolitan Museum’s stairs at this year’s Met Gala caused quite the stir, but one thing Ripley’s Believe It or Not! can say with confidence is that it did not cause damage to Marilyn Monroe’s famed ‘Happy Birthday’ dress from 1962.”

advertisement

“Our mission is to both entertain and educate visitors and fans, and sparking conversations like the discourse around Marilyn Monroe’s dress does just that.

  via Getty Images  

“No matter which side of the debate you are on, the historical importance of the dress has not been negated but rather highlighted.”

advertisement

“An entirely new group of young people has now been introduced to the legacy of Marilyn Monroe.”

  via Getty Images  

Ripley’s continued: “Kim Kardashian wearing the ‘Happy Birthday’ dress has been hotly contested, but the fact remains that she did not, in any way, damage the garment in the short amount of time it was worn at the Met Gala.”

advertisement

Ripley’s employee, Amanda Joiner, who watched over the dress, said that “from the bottom of the Met steps, where Kim got into the dress, to the top where it was returned, the dress was in the same condition it started in.”

  via Getty Images  

Kim herself then spoke out to address the claims.

advertisement

She told TODAY that she “showed up to the red carpet in a robe and slippers and I put the dress on at the bottom of the carpet, went up the stairs.”

  via Getty Images  

She recalled: “I probably had it on for three minutes, four minutes, and then I changed right at the top of the stairs.”

advertisement

She added: “There were handlers in gloves that put it on me.”

  via Getty Images  

The reality star later explained that she respected Monroe greatly, and understood “how much this dress means to American history.”

You can watch part of the interview here.

advertisement

That’s not the only thing the reality star claimed, though.

  via Getty Images  

She also said that a lot of people didn’t know who Marilyn Monroe was before Kim Kardashian wore the dress.

advertisement

Talking on the TODAY Show, the Kardashian said that a lot of people on TikTok did not know who Monroe was…

  via Getty Images  

And it shocked her.

The TODAY host, Savannah, mentioned that Kim had said she was “shocked on TikTok,” because some people “didn’t even know who Marilyn Monroe was.”

advertisement

“That was the most shocking thing to me,” she began.

  via Getty Images  

“That’s why I was so happy to at least have that opportunity and that Ripley’s gave me the opportunity to share this moment so that it could live on,” she continued.

advertisement

“I respect her. I understand how much this dress means to American history and with the theme being American than Marilyn Monroe singing happy birthday to the President of the United States?” she expressed.

  via Getty Images  

You can watch the full interview here.

advertisement

Kim had to undergo a very strict diet.

  via Getty Images  

Kim had to lose 16lbs to fit in to the dress and did so by switching from her plant based diet to one including meat.

advertisement

The change in diet reportedly caused a ‘really painful’ dose of psoriasis which also left her with arthritis in her hands.

  via Getty Images  

Speaking to Allure, Kim explained: “Psoriasis broke out over my body and I got psoriatic arthritis, so I couldn’t really move my hands. ‘I had to go to a rheumatologist who put me on a steroid. I was freaking out. I cut out the meat again, and it’s calmed down.”

advertisement

As you can tell, Kim’s image has always sparked a lot of debate.

  via Getty Images  

And many often question just how real Kim’s look is.

Well, recently Kim spoke out saying that her beauty standards are attainable.

advertisement

Kim explained to Allure magazine that she doesn’t feel responsible for setting ‘unrealistic beauty standards’ because her looks are ‘attainable’.

  via Shutterstock  

More specifically Kim said: “If I’m doing it, it’s attainable.” However, many have criticized the billionaire claiming that not everyone has the same amount of wealth to attain that level of beauty.

advertisement

One of the biggest critics of Kim’s comment was her former employee, Jessica DeFino.

  via Getty Images  

DeFino claimed that despite Kim’s wealth, her beauty standards are not even attainable for her, saying that when she worked on the Kardashian app, a full-time Photoshop editor was hired too who would edit almost every photo before they were posted.

advertisement

The criticism didn’t stop there…

  via Getty Images  

One commenter wrote: “A wealthy person saying hundreds of thousands of dollars in procedures and products is ‘attainable’ is laughable. In a sad, laughing and crying while society burns sort of way.”

advertisement

Many fans have pointed out that she is out of touch with reality, highlighting her “wealth privilege,” and how that has a big effect on her image.

  via Getty Images  

“Attainable my a***. Only for those in her air bubble. And rich celebrity types similarly wrapped up in their own worlds,” one person tweeted.

“Laser treatments when her kids are in bed? Lol, I barely have time for a shower a day as a mother & carer,” they wrote in response to her comments that she gives herself late-night laser treatments before bed.

advertisement

Another added that her body was in no way “attainable”: “Yeah no it’s not @KimKardashian you have wealth privilege. Many people, including myself, don’t. Tone-deaf and out of touch.”

  via Getty Images  

A fourth tweeted: “Every time she tries to make herself seem relatable she just shows how completely delusional and out of touch she is. F*** off already.”

advertisement

And now, just when we thought Kim couldn’t do anything more dramatic, she revealed that she’s only had ‘a little bit of Botox’.

  via Getty Images  

During her recent interview with Allure, Kim was asked whether she’s ever had fillers in her lips or cheeks…

advertisement

“No filler. Never filled either one, ever,”she replied.

  via Getty Images  

But that’s not all, she also claimed that she’s “never had eyelash extensions” and that her “eyebrows are real.”

advertisement

But fans have slammed Kim for making such statements and have even called the star a liar…

  via Getty Images  

“@KimKardashian claims she doesn’t have any filler, lip injections, plastic surgery – just Botox. Why lie so blatantly? She thinks we’re deaf dumb and blind,” wrote one person.

advertisement

While another added that even “Allure stooped” to publicize Kim’s lies.

  via Getty Images  

“Can’t believe Allure even stooped to publishing Kim’s lies that she’s all-natural. Do whatever treatments you like but don’t lie about it,” they wrote.

advertisement

And Kim didn’t hold back from making some rather cringe-worthy confessions too…

  via Getty Images  

“I would probably eat s*** if someone told me, ‘If you eat this bowl of poop every single day, you’ll look younger.’

advertisement

“I care. I really, genuinely care about looking good,” said the reality star when probed about how far she would go to look good.

  via Getty Images  

Kim also revealed how it’s not easy being a mother and that’s why she probably cares more about her looks…

advertisement

“I probably care more than 90 percent of the people on this planet. It’s not easy when you’re a mom and you’re exhausted at the end of the day or you’re in school, and I’m all of the above,” she confessed.

  via Getty Images  

“I do my beauty treatments usually late at night. After everyone’s in bed, I’m doing laser treatments,” she added.

advertisement

And now Kylie Jenner has been making headlines…

  via Getty Images  

And it’s all to do with climate change.

advertisement

Let’s just say, this whole ordeal started back in May when Kylie and her mom received backlash when they were filmed going to a supermarket in their family reality show, The Kardashians.

  via Getty Images  

And the duo apparently looked “very excited” and giddy as they pushed a cart full of groceries, paid at the checkout, and even loaded their items into their car.

But that’s not all.

advertisement

They later “compared a drive-thru car wash to Disneyland,” calling it “a tourist attraction.”

  via Getty Images  

But it left fans feeling very uncomfortable, for obvious reasons.

advertisement

People claimed the beauty billionaire found “novelty in such everyday activities,” showing off her “privilege…”

  via Getty Images  

And this particular incident followed the episode in which Kylie’s sister, Kendall Jenner, famously struggled “to slice her own cucumber,” which sparked another debate about growing up with wealth.

advertisement

“I love that Kylie and Kendall are so out of touch with reality, to the point where they have to have a day to do ‘normal things’ like grocery store in person and cutting their own cucumbers,” one person tweeted at the time.

  via Getty Images  

And people just couldn’t stop labeling the pair and called the scenes as displays of “white rich privilege.”

advertisement

“Kylie and Kris calling going to the grocery store and checking out and filling their cart an experience is the most white rich privileged thing I’ve seen,” said one fan.

  via Getty Images  

“[I] thought the ‘day of normal errands’ with Kris and Kylie would be cute but it’s SO GROSS. We know they’re out of touch, we don’t need to see just how out of touch,” added another fan.

advertisement

But neither Kylie nor Kris responded to the comments…

  via Getty Images  

And if you thought this controversy was drama, keep scrolling!

advertisement

Kylie posted a photo of a black and white photo of herself and her partner, Travis Scott…

  via Getty Images  

And they were seen “embracing in between” two private jets.

advertisement

The business mogul captioned the photo with what seemed like a normal caption, but fans suspected something else.

  via Getty Images  

“You wanna take mine or yours?” Kylie captioned her photo.

advertisement

The photo quickly went viral on the internet…

  via Getty Images  

And, well, people have been dishing out their opinions on Twitter-sphere, accusing her of being “a full-time climate criminal.”

advertisement

The accusations didn’t stop there as fans accused her of “bragging” about “her absolute disregard” for the planet…

  via Getty Images  

Amid the controversy, some dived deeper into Kylie’s “flight history.”

advertisement

They discovered that her jet has been used for flights as short as 3 minutes…”

  via Getty Images  

However, it’s still “not confirmed” whether the mom of two was on the plane at the time, after records showed the plane flew from Camarillo, California, to Van Nuys, as per reports.

advertisement

But what made fans even angrier is that by car the journey would have taken “just 40 minutes,” and less CO2.

  via Getty Images  

And critics have also said that “Kylie’s jet has taken flights “less than 15 minutes” too.

Leaving fans even infuriated.

advertisement

“80% of people have never taken a plane and Kylie Jenner is out here taking regular ten-minute flights, 5 flights in the last week under thirty minutes, one was 3 minutes long. Her carbon footprint for one ten-minute flight is more than some people make in a year,” one person tweeted.

  via Getty Images  

According to reports, “private jets have been found to emit two tonnes of CO2 in just one hour,” – no wonder why it’s left fans feeling annoyed.

Well, what do you think?
