Elyse Knowles has been slammed by fans for attending the Formula One Grand Prix in Singapore over the weekend.

On Friday, the 27-year-old model and environmentalist urged Australians to be more sustainable and cut down on their use of disposable plastics.

But now critics are claiming she is a ‘hypocrite’ for sharing photos from the racing event, just one day after posting a message in support of climate change action.

‘We need to support the brave kids protesting, as it’s their future at risk. It’s time to focus solely on renewable energy sources and walk away from burning fossil fuels and the creation of new oils.

‘It’s not about convenience anymore, it’s about the future of the planet. I’m so proud of those who are marching in my new home town, Byron Bay, and I stand behind them all.’

‘To those who are in power and have the ability to help fix this crisis, please take this seriously,’ she concluded.
