Olivia Wilde thinks Taylor Swift should spotlight real issues, like environmentalism, instead of football — but some are noting … she left a big carbon footprint with Harry Styles.
The director/actress is catching flak from Swifties far and wide over a tweet she reposted on her Instagram Stories Friday — which reads, “I wish Taylor Swift was in love with a climate scientist.” Olivia didn’t add any extra commentary — but the sentiment is clear enough.
Of course, many are taking OW’s cosigned remarks as straight-up shade toward Taylor and Travis Kelce’s relationship … and it’s not going over well among TS’s fan base.
One of the biggest criticisms, it seems, lies in the fact that Olivia herself was also recently dating a major pop star — with whom she traversed the globe over the past few years … whether it was to promote their film, support his concerts or simply to vacation.
Indeed, Olivia and HS have gone all over together … jet-setting from L.A. to NYC and to Vegas and Raleigh, NC — not to mention hitting up Santa Barbara. Overseas, they were photographed in Italy, France and the UK In other words, quite a bit of traveling.
Naturally, in order to have gone to most, if not all, these locations — they’ve had to take planes … and that undoubtedly hurts the environment, something that’s being pointed out in the all the backlash aimed at Olivia. While she’s been an outspoken advocate for climate change — even launching an eco-friendly clothing brand — some say … this is a bad look.
It’s certainly possible that Olivia pays for carbon offsets, etc. — but in any case … her opinion seems to have backfired, even if her heart was in the right place. Swing and a miss.
