The Internet Roasts The Kardashians Again Over Another Tone-Deaf Birthday Party
Remember last week, when hotly controversial reality TV icon, Kim Kardashian West, faced the internet's collective rage after posting about her mask-free 40th birthday party on a private island in the height of a global pandemic?
Remember the angry tweets?
The dank memes?
The angry op-eds roasting the "tone-deaf" affair?
Well reader, while you, me, and of course, Pepperidge Farm, may remember, it seems the Kardashian Krew learned hardly anything from their PR snafu, as Kim's younger sister, supermodel Kendall Jenner hosted a celeb-filled bash for her 25th birthday over the weekend. On Saturday, Jenner threw a Halloween-themed, star-studded soiree at Harriet's Rooftop in West Hollywood, complete with A-list guests including The Weeknd, Doja Cat, and Icy girl extraordinaire, Saweetie, the LA Times reported.
Although this time, the KarJenners allegedly had a strict no social media policy (except, of course, for Kim Kardashian Kylie Jenner), in what appears to be an attempt to avoid the internet's wrath, and made guests take rapid Covid-19 tests upon entry, according to Entertainment Tonight, people were still angry about the affair.
"Ok Kendall Jenner blowing out candles as a masked waiter holds her cake and tries to move out of the way was actually the scariest thing I saw on Halloween," wrote Twitter user @lolzlindz in reference to a video Kylie posted of her older sister's party.
"kendall jenner will post shit about voting for biden and then won't even listen to him about not throwing parties during COVID," wrote user @sunxcherry of the event.
However some went beyond mere criticisms, literally wishing ill on all of the party's attendees. "manifesting that everyone who went to kendall jenner's party tests positive," tweeted @lousfinallyfree.
But it didn't stop there. On Monday afternoon, the unthinkable happened -- the Beyonce's Beyhive got involved, poking fun at the situation.
"Beyonce has unfollowed everyone who was partying at kendall jenner's birthday party last weekend," @beyhivestuff posted, a nod to Beyonce famously following no one on social media (she is the Queen after all!)
Amid the backlash, Momager Kris Jenner spoke out, defending her family's Covid-era partying to Andy Cohen on his radio show earlier this week. "We're dealing with lots of people that have different opinions, and all we can do is live our lives the best way we know how and be responsible and do the right thing. And we're doing that," she explained to the Watch What Happens Live host. "And I think, I am very sensitive to what's going on. Believe me, you know, I've really tried so hard." Ok, Kris.
Moral of the story? If you're a celebrity, maybe don't throw massive CDC guideline-defying parties amid a global pandemic. Kome on, Kardashians, it's getting hard to keep up with these kontinuous koronavirus blunders.
