Kim Kardashian dragged for tone-deaf birthday trip post, more news

Wonderwall Logo By Wonderwall.com Editors of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 10: As positive COVID-19 cases continue to rise, Kim Kardashian West is being accused of tone-deaf TMI for the social media recap she posted about her 40th birthday extravaganza. Kim, who hit the big 4-0 on Oct. 21, flew her family and friends to a private island for the celebration, which she noted in her post was preceded by a two week quarantine period for everyone involved. "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," Kim tweeted on Tuesday. "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." Photos from the trip showed Kim and her mask-less relatives enjoying their time together, but it was more the shared company than the missing masks that set off a wave of backlash in the comments. "I haven't seen ma family in 4 months because I work a public-facing job and I'm absolutely terrified of the possibility of passing Covid on to my vulnerable parents," one user griped. "Hope you had fun pretending things were normal, but spare a thought for those of us staying in the real world." Another tweeted that they were, "reading this as half of my office got laid off today." While some fans told Kim not to sweat her critics -- "I'd probably do the same," wrote one user -- others suggested posting about it made Kim look "out of touch with reality" and came off as "tone-deaf."
