Kim Kardashian West faced criticism after she held her 40th birthday party on a private island with a large number of relatives and friends.
But Kardashian said that the ceremony came after “two weeks of conducting a number of medical examinations and calling on everyone to quarantine.”
She said that this ceremony “reminded me of how my life is special,” commenting on pictures of the concert that she posted on the social networking site Twitter.
While some Kardashian fans praised her frankness in talking about the occasion, others saw that the ceremony was an event that was not sensitive to the feelings of others, and that it affected families suffering from estrangement due to Covid-19.
One Twitter user said: “It’s a bad thing. Rich people can pretend that things are going normally on a private island, while ordinary people cancel their plans to gather to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas.”
British musician Pete Frampton responded to the Kardashian photos, saying: “Are you so insensitive. Do you realize that this is the last thing most people want to see in light of the worst rise in the spread of Covid-19? People at this time head to food banks?” No to private islands. “
Corona virus deaths amounted to about 1.1 million cases, in addition to the severe economic damage to the economy around the world.
And US jobless seekers set a record this year as a result of millions of job cuts due to the epidemic.
Kardashian admitted the harmful effects of the Corona virus, while posting pictures of her birthday party at the gates of her tropical island.
“Before the spread of Covid-19, none of us appreciated the simple luxury that we used to enjoy while traveling and gathering families and friends in a safe environment,” she said.
She added: “After two weeks of many medical examinations and the demands of the participants in this ceremony to adhere to a quarantine, I surprised those close to me with this trip to the private island as we pretended that everything is going normally for only a few moments.”
“We danced, cycled, rowed, watched movies on the beach and a lot of other activities,” she said.
“I realize that for most people, that is hard to come by right now, which made me feel that I humbly had a special life,” Kim said.
People’s responses to Kardashian’s mostly satirical photos focused on the reality TV star surprising her friends with the trip to the private island.
One of these comments included replacing the concert pictures and posting pictures from the horror movie “Wicker Man”, or “The Twigs Man”.
Journalist Ronan Farrow quipped that Kardashian West’s birthday party revived the work of plastic artist Hieronymus Bush.
A user on Twitter exchanged photos of the Kardashian concert and posted pictures from a notorious festival called “Fire Festival” in 2017, in which the participants were tricked after buying expensive tickets, each worth $ 12,000, for a festival that was said to be dedicated to the rich, celebrities and men. Business, but it was just a lot of empty tents and little cheap boxes of cheese sandwiches.
Some likened the ceremony to the video game “Aming Us”, which is based on the story of a mysterious murder in outer space.
Even the New York Museum of Modern Art participated in the comments on the Kardashian pictures, and published a plastic art painting that used with it the original words she wrote on her pictures.
The reality TV star has also been criticized for bragging on social media to host a party.
Writer Gina Quigley said, “Nice, people had to say goodbye to loved ones over the phone while they were dying in the hospital. But this elegant party deserves to be pictured on social media while the world is suffering, it was really very humble and very simple.”
She added, “It is nice to have a trip to celebrate Christmas, but it is disgusting to publish pictures of the ceremony on social networking sites because it acted to say the least that it expresses a lack of discrimination.”
Music journalist Eve Barlow commented: “For Kim Kardashian, it would not be enough to have the money with which she could do whatever she wanted, but rather you would need to tell everyone what to do.”
“Let them eat donuts,” said Colin Hanks, son of superstar Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.
Another user on Twitter pointed to one of the servants responsible for food wearing a muzzle, saying: “It seems that pretending that everything is normal in this party did not extend to its workers.”
