Elton John slams media for criticizing Harry, Meghan

LONDON -- Singer Elton John says he's "deeply distressed" by media accounts that criticized the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for taking a private jet to go on vacation despite the flight's carbon impact of the planet.

John and his partner "wanted the young family to have a private holiday." The jet offered a "high level of much-needed protection."

He says the flight was carbon neutral because it was offset by a contribution to Carbon Footprint.
