Taylor Swift found herself under fire Friday after being named the celebrity with the worst private jet carbon emissions — and the 32-year-old singer’s rep is clapping back at the ranking.

“Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals,” her spokesperson told BuzzFeed News Monday.

“To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”

The Grammy winner was called out by analytics agency Yard for taking 170 flights since January and reportedly emitting more than 800 tons of carbon.

Many Twitter users argued on Monday that Swift is still at fault for her top spot, even if other people are using the aircraft.

“I love how you are spreading the blame for your private jet. Allowing other people to use it adds to the increased carbon footprint,” one social media user wrote. “It’s not enough that you are a hypocrite, but you encourage others to be the same. How is that ok?”

Another added, “Taylor Swift’s carbon footprint defense being ‘I rent out my plane’ is so ludicrous. It’s your plane. I don’t care that you don’t fly it that often (insert BS here) or others fly in it, you’re still emitting mega carbon and other pollutants.”

Kylie Jenner, Drake and other celebrities have also sparked outrage over their frequent private jet use.

The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” alum, 24, posted a photo of herself and Travis Scott standing between their aircrafts on July 15, writing, “you wanna take mine or yours?”

The social media upload — and the makeup mogul’s flight history — led many to refer to her as a “climate criminal,” but the reality star has yet to address the backlash.
