    The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and Kanye West have just reached the next level of extravagance by revealing their posh private double-decker Boeing.

    In a series of Insta-stories, Kim Kardashian gave her 120 million followers a glimpse into the luxurious mode of transport that was given to Kanye West by Team Adidas for his Yeezy brand – a private Boeing 747 with a seating capacity of 660 people.

    Showing off several bedrooms, a lounge zone, guest rooms, dining area, work-out space and even the ‘Yeezy floating office’, Kim said: ‘So this is what a private 747 is like, you guys. I’ve never been on one before. Oh my god, there’s bedrooms everywhere. No big deal. This is like endless’.

    Many fans flooded social media with posts full of anger and shock and called it ‘obnoxious’ and ‘unnecessary’, citing climate concerns:

    Others, however, leapt to defence of the Kardashian-West couple, saying that they are entitled to spend the money they make the way they want to:

    The couple has yet to respond to the public backlash.

    Nearly two weeks ago they faced much criticism for hiring a private team of firefighters to save their house from California wildfires, even though TMZ reported that the couple’s decision had saved the entire neighbourhood.

    During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week, Kim explained the reason why she hired them:

    ‘I feel like we were really blessed to have the help of the firefighters that we did. And our house is right on the end of a big park. So the whole park had caught fire and if our house went, then every other house would go’, she explained, admitting that it was a ‘luxury’.

    Kim also announced that she had donated a whopping $500,000 to the firefighters and relief fund helping victims of the wildfires.
