Travis Kelce has landed in Sydney to join Taylor Swift as she continues her record-breaking Eras Tour in Australia—and people are furious.

The pop superstar hit the road again performing in Melbourne from February 16 to February 18 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Swift had 96,000 fans in the audience at each show, making them the three biggest shows she’s ever played. This came just days after cheering on Kelce at the Super Bowl, who then stayed behind in Kansas City for the Chiefs’ celebrations.

However, the three-time Super Bowl champion was on a Bombardier Global 6000 plane Wednesday morning from Hawaii to Sydney, where the singer will carry on with her sold-out shows from February 23 to 26.

While a commercial flight from Sydney to Honolulu typically takes approximately 10 hours, the private jet is built to travel more quickly than a commercial aircraft. According to FlightRadar24, the aircraft was the number one most-tracked flight worldwide during its descent, with more than 9,000 people watching its journey online.

Controversial internet personality Oli London reshared a video from an Australian news program on X (formerly Twitter) that discussed the jet usage.

London captioned the post: “Climate change activist Taylor Swift sends her private jet from Sydney to Hawaii to pick up her boyfriend Travis Kelce and bring him to Australia. The round trip will emit 3 metric tons of CO2. The CO2 emissions equate to melting 95.4 square feet of Arctic sea ice.”

At the time of writing the post had been viewed 1 million times and people took to the comments to express their disgust.

Newsweek contacted Swift’s publicist via email Thursday for comment.

“Was there not a regular normal plane with a first class cabin available???” one person asked alongside a rolling eyes emoji.

“These climate hypocrites are all the same,” said another.

“Rules for thee, not for me. Virtue signaling hypocrisy,” someone else wrote.

“It’s disheartening to see such a drastic impact on our environment from unnecessary travel emissions,” a fourth person commented.

A fifth added: “And I’m over here recycling. Wtf.”

Even Adrianne Curry-Rhode, a model who appeared on America’s Next Top Model, weighed in. “The Leonardo DiCaprio effect,” she posted, referring to the fact that DiCaprio encourages people to reduce their carbon footprint while still using private jets himself.

Despite criticism, a source close to the matter told Newsweek it was not her chartered plane.

Not everyone is upset with the pop superstar, as some people took to the comments to offer words of support.

“Good for them, hope they have a lovely time together,” one X user posted.

“Sweet, hope they have fun!” said another.

This isn’t the first time that Swift and her private jet usage has made headlines. She has come under fire for flying to and from Kelce’s NFL games on her private jet amid concerns about pollution and global warming. Her VistaJet Global 6000 plane flew from Tokyo to Los Angeles and then onto Las Vegas as she rushed to make the big game.

The “Blank Space” singer’s private jet usage was also under scrutiny when she threatened legal action against celebrity jet tracker Jack Sweeney.

According to Sweeney’s X account, Taylor Swift Jets (@SwiftJetNextDay), her private jet flights produced 77.8342 tons of carbon dioxide between December 25 and January 30 alone. But she may not have been on all of those flights, as she recently sold one of her two private jets.

Swift was also previously named “biggest celebrity CO2 polluter” by the social media account Celebrity Jets, which documented the private jet journeys of stars including Kylie Jenner, Stephen Spielberg and Drake.
