Taylor Swift recently found herself atop a list published by marketing firm Yard of the top carbon producers based on private jet usage.
Inevitably, the whole thing went down pretty badly online, with thousands of fans slamming Taylor for her extreme jet use, especially in the midst of a climate crisis.
It wasn’t long before Taylor’s representatives responded with a statement, in which they attempted to refute that the singer was solely responsible for the emissions attributed to her.
Despite presumably hoping to ease the uproar, their efforts to distribute the blame quickly wound up making things worse.
“I don’t care who’s on the plane, it shouldn’t be making all those flights and producing all those emissions,” one person said in response. “If you own it, you’re responsible for it. They should all be flying commercial (and flying less).”
