The quiet rumble of criticism against the travel and socializing choices members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan have made during the pandemic has turned into a roar. First, Kim Kardashian West threw herself a 40th birthday party last week on a private island, flying friends and family in so they could “pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time,” and then Kendall Jenner threw a 100+ person bash without masks or social distancing for 25th birthday and Halloween.
While there were signs up everywhere begging people not to post on social media, many, including her sister Kylie, ignored her instructions and the blowback she seemed to anticipate hit with a vengeance.
One shot shows Kendall blowing out candles on a birthday cake, breaking multiple coronavirus health guidelines in one fell swoop; an apparently horrified waiter tried to evade her spittle. He, unlike the attendees, was wearing a mask.
Twitter was peeved, and didn’t understand why she couldn’t see this happening. Wrote one: “i'm still in awe of kendall jenner's chaos of inviting influencers and models and her sister to her birthday and expecting them to read and follow these rules.”
Miley Cyrus seemed pretty furious too. She reportedly unfollowed celebs who attended, plus Kendall and Kylie.
