Kim Kardashian Faces Backlash Over 40th Birthday Celebration

Kim Kardashian has come under fire after sharing images of her 40th birthday celebration with friends and family on a private island.

Kardashian, whose birthday was on Oct. 21, posted several photos showing that her family members, including Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner were in attendance, as well as La La Anthony, Tristan Thompson, Scott Disick and others.

40 and feeling so humbled and blessed. There is not a single day that I take for granted, especially during these times when we are all reminded of the things that truly matter. For my birthday this year, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than with some of the people who have helped shaped me into the woman I am today. Before COVID, I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment. 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. We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more. I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is. #thisis40

“After two 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,” Kardashian wrote in part. “We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more. I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is.”

In a report by Page Six, it was revealed that Kardashian spent $1 million on the trip, which was located on a private island in Tahiti. The celebration included under 30 guests at The Brando, a luxurious private island resort in French Polynesia.

Many were upset by Kardashian’s posts, saying they were tone-deaf nature amid the pandemic and the toll its taken.

Others on Twitter, poked fun at Kardashian’s posts, giving them the meme treatment.

Kardashian has yet to respond to the backlash.
