Over the week, the reality show star Kim Kardashian is currently facing heavy backlash after flying her close friends and family over to a private island for her 40th birthday celebrations amidst the coronavirus pandemic. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star posted various pictures on her social media handles with family and friends including Kylie Jenner, Kendal Jenner, Kris Jenner, Chloe Kardashian, Courtney Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, Tristan Thompson, La La Anthony and Scott Disick, as they partied all night and had the time of their lives- all without a single mask present in the pictures. Her husband Kanye West also attended her birthday party despite being absent from the photos she had posted on her Facebook and Instagram feed.

Justifies Avoiding The Necessary Health Precautions During The Pandemic

On Tuesday, she explained on how she made sure all her guests received 2 continuous weeks of multiple health check-ups and requested everyone to quarantine themselves for a maximum of 3 days. She said that she took her close friends and family over to a private island where they could finally have the privilege of pretending that everything was back to normal, even if it was for a brief moment of time. She also stated that they really had fun, by swimming near whales, dancing like nobody was watching, rode bikes, watched movies on the beach and so much more. She realised that for most people this is not even close to becoming their possibility and in moments like these, “i am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is.”, she shared on her social media.

Fans That Turn Out To Be Jealous and Judgemental

Inspite of the precautions that were seemed to be avoided during this pandemic and taking notice of her privilege, Twitter users, Instagrammers and Facebook users were still not happy with Kim’s tone-deaf posts. So of course, there were countless mean, rude and nasty comments that were calling out Kardashian for her carelessness. Few comments attacked her wealth and privilege, saying she was abusing it and not using it wisely and most people sarcastically commented saying that she was the only one in the world to who the rules and regulations of the pandemic does not apply too and that she “doesn’t need a plastic mask since she’s made of plastic anyway”. Her rep did not comment to any of the comments on any social media handles.
