Kim Kardashian faces backlash

Kim Kardashian has faced backlash after she boasted about her birthday getaway online last night.

The reality star revealed she flew her family and friends to a private island for her 40th birthday.

Many took to social media branding her comments, 'tone deaf,' amid a global pandemic.

Kim wrote, '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.'

She continued, '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.'

A trip to a private island

'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'

The backlash

So many people have taken to social media to comment.

One user tweeted, 'I've heard smart people that I like argue that Kim Kardashian is smart and good and it's nice to be reminded that she is, in fact, dumb and bad.'

While another said, 'This is tone deaf and insensitive.'

Kim hasn't commented further.
