If you’ve ever watched two seconds of a ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ episode, then you’ll be very aware of the drama constantly being stirred up by the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
Despite the fact that the show is coming to an end after 20 seasons (yes, they’ve been around THAT long), as revealed by Kim Kardashian in an Instagram post last September, the drama they attract seemingly never stops.
Last Saturday, Kendall Jenner hosted a 25th birthday party at Harriet’s rooftop in Hollywood with an estimated amount of about 100 people present. Photos that surfaced from the same party show flyers hung over the venue with the words “NO SOCIAL MEDIA. TAKE ALL THE PHOTOS YOU WANT, BUT PLEASE DO NOT POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA OF ANY KIND.”
This announcement, however, seems to have gone unnoticed by Kendall’s sister, Kylie, as the 23-year-old flooded her Instagram stories with several photos and videos of the lavish event. Part of us thinks that this was planned on purpose to coincide with an upcoming episode of the reality show aptly named “Things Fall Apart: COVID-19” in which Khloe opens up about her COVID-19 diagnosis.
The videos showed several celebrities, including Justin Bieber and Jaden Smith, interacting with one another (obvs, no two metre distance was adhered to) with no mask in sight.
The only way you’d notice that these videos were taken a few days, and not a year, ago is through the fact that the only person wearing a mask was the server holding the birthday cake.
The model was on the receiving end of quite a bit of criticism as one Twitter user expressed her anger by saying “This Halloween/birthday party for Kendall Jenner with a sh*t ton of people, no social distancing and the only people wearing masks are the service workers. Eat the rich. I hate it here.”
This comes just after the shocking Twitter thread shared by Kim which showed her celebrating her 40th birthday on a private island with several (and by several, I mean TONS) of friends and family members.
One of the tweets read “After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.”
Some individuals couldn’t resist the opportunity to mock this tweet, whilst others took to Twitter to berate the Kardashian for her insensitivity in posting a thread of that nature when several people are suffering the harsh consequences of a global pandemic.
One upset Twitter user said “This is so grotesque. The rick can pretend to be normal on a private island. Actual normal people are cancelling their Thanksgiving and Christmas.”
What do YOU think of all this backlash? Is it uncalled for or do you think the Kardashians could do better?
