Keeping up with the Kardashians has become less appealing for people during a pandemic that has killed hundreds of thousands and severely impacted the lives of millions.
In a public backlash not unlike the one that started the French Revolution, people are slamming Kim Kardashian West's tweets about whisking her friends and family off to a private island for her 40th birthday. Despite claiming to be "humbled," nothing about this is humble.
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. pic.twitter.com/cIFP7Nv5bV— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) October 27, 2020
There's a lot going on here, including the fact that she insists that her friends were surprised about the trip EVEN AFTER THEY QUARANTINED FOR TWO WEEKS, and it's wild that this technically happened on the same planet as the one everybody else is living on. The planet that is being ravaged by COVID-19.
People copy-and-pasted Kardashian's tweet and included pictures of some of pop culture's most notable island getaways and birthday parties. They also took the opportunity to slam Kim K's tone-deafness and advocate for a wealth tax.
