Firefighters battle wildfires across Europe amid record heatwave
Sometimes, alongside a heads up that the world is burning, you need a reminder that high-profile media personalities remain incredibly out of touch with the rest of society. And on Sunday, that reminder came from TheKardashians star Kylie Jenner.
\u201cThe world is literally on fire and these people are holding the match I can\u2019t \ud83d\ude2d\u201d

\u201cthis is depressing as fuck actually considering working class ppl are constantly being told to alter their/our habits to fight climate change while people w money can just pollute the earth all day\u201d
In the face of continuing backlash, Jenner has since limited comments on the Instagram post, meaning responses can only be added by a group of people selected by the user – such as those she follows herself.
Otherwise, she is yet to publicly address the criticism. We love celebrities with influence not taking accountability for their actions!
It’s just ‘plane’ ignorant, Kylie, if you ask us (sorry).
