Celebrities, especially the Kardashian-Jenner clan, are known for doing extravagant and sometimes wacky things. For instance, Kanye West once gifted Kim Kardashian West a neon-green G-Wagen. Her billionaire sister Kylie Jenner also has an impressive car collection, including a Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta from her partner Travis Scott after giving birth to their daughter Stormi. And recently, the rapper/producer gifted the now-3-year-old a yellow school bus.
Travis Scott got a school bus for Stormi, and Twitter was not happy
Recently, Scott got a big yellow school bus for Stormi because she was “obsessed” about riding one, Glamour reported.
And as you might expect, the Twitterverse had some thoughts. The consensus among users seemed to be that Jenner and her family were doing “middle-class cosplay” and were out of touch with reality.
One user tweeted that “rich people are literally so far from reality they bought a school bus for Stormi to sit on.”
Another Twitter user wrote, “Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott surprising their daughter with a yellow bus called me poor in many different ways.”
Other users wrote, “Stormi got to play make-believe poor today” and “Stormi is so rich her dad Travis surprised her with a yellow school bus so she can act middle class for the day.”
Another asked, “What’s weird about a kid wanting to ride a school bus?” to which another user replied, “I didn’t say Stormi was weird. Renting a school bus for your 4-year-old and then showing it off is.”
But what many critics didn’t realize was that Scott did not buy the bus.
Here’s how much it costs to rent a yellow school bus like the one Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner’s daughter got
According to reports, Scott did not purchase the yellow school bus; he rented it for the day. But it likely wasn’t cheap — at least in non-celebrity budget terms.
In Southern California, where Scott and Jenner live, the average cost to rent a school bus for a minimum of five hours is $460 to $700, with each additional hour costing $85 to $90, according to Metropolitan Shuttle.
So, if Scott rented the bus for, say, 12 hours, it would cost $1,050 to $1,330. For many families, that’s rent or mortgage payment.
What other factors affect the price of renting a school bus?
In addition to the length of time you’ll rent the school bus, location can affect the price. According to Bus.com, when you plan to rent a school bus is also important.
Prices are higher during certain times of the year and on specific dates. In fact, there’s a new trend of renting school buses for weddings and large family gatherings. Additionally, expect to pay more on weekends than in the middle of the week. And, as with most things, higher demand means higher prices.
Though many people thought it was ridiculous for Travis Scott to rent a school bus for his and Kylie Jenner’s daughter and show it off on Instagram, riding in a yellow school bus can bring back (mostly) good memories for people.
So if you’re looking for something memorable and relatively unique to give your event an interesting touch, a big yellow school bus might be just the thing. Plus, you (probably) won’t get Twitter-shamed.
