Kim Kardashian was hit with waves of criticism on Tuesday after she shared a slideshow from her luxurious 40th birthday beach getaway with her friends and family, with fans calling it ‘tone deaf and insensitive.’

 But the reality star appeared to ignore the criticism, as she continued to flaunt her luxurious vacation amid global lockdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The images were posted on Wednesday morning, the same day a new preview for their show Keeping Up With The Kardashians was released – where Khloe revealed she tested positive for COVID-19.

The episode was filmed months ago, with the star saying her symptoms included vomiting and headaches. 

‘I just found out that I do have corona, I have been in my room … it was really bad for a couple of days, vomiting and shaking and hot and cold,’ Khloe said.

Piers Morgan brands Kim Kardashian a ‘tone-deaf imbecile’ after 40th birthday vacation

Piers Morgan has branded Kim Kardashian a ‘tone-deaf imbecile’ after she bragged about  enjoying a tropical vacation with her family during the global pandemic.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, 55, hit out at the 40-year-old reality star on Wednesday, after she received an overwhelming amount of backlash online from her post about the trip to celebrate her birthday.

Kim admitted the entire family received ‘multiple health screens’ before embarking on the holiday, but Piers slammed the decision as ‘repulsive’.

Kim shared a host of photos of her family from their getaway to a tropical island for a luxurious retreat in honor of her big day, but was accused of being tone deaf.

Retweeting the snaps on his own Twitter account, Piers said: ‘This thread is so repulsive it makes me want to vomit. 

He then slammed: ‘Not that we needed confirmation but what a spoiled, tone-deaf imbecile.’

Earlier in the day, fans were quick to question if the family even realized the severity of the coronavirus and quarantine lockdown guidelines affecting billions of people around the world. 

Tone deaf: Kim received backlash from fans after bragging about the lengths she went to make sure the holiday could happen despite the coronavirus crisis.

Followers were completely caught off guard by Kim’s long-winded post detailing the extravagant affair.

She 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.

‘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.

‘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’

Kim Kardashian’s Vacation Pics From Her 40th Birthday Are Getting Major Backlash From Fans

Kim Kardashian West recently turned 40, and she celebrated all the ways we expected, even amid a pandemic. She was thrown a giant surprise birthday party by her family and we said nothing. She posted an admittedly stunning bikini snap from an undisclosed beach and we said nothing. But now, she’s sharing photos from the friends-and-family trip to an island she took for her birthday as well, gushing over how remarkable it was to be able to “pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.” Presumably, she wanted more of the same reaction, of well wishes and “wow that looks amazing” that pours in every time she gives us a peek at her über-privileged life. But these photos — and these captions — were hardest of all Kim’s flaunted normalcy to stomach. We all want what Kim had the wealth and privilege to buy herself and her family and friends. After the party and the gifts and the photoshoots, how many more millions of dollars are we supposed to be excited about Kim spending on her birthday?

Kim starts out her stream of birthday photos by saying she’s feeling “humbled and blessed” on her 40th birthday — but her next caption shows startlingly little of that reflective attitude toward her own privilege.

“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,” Kim wrote, though family trips are a luxury most Americans can’t regularly afford.

“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,” she continued. “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.”

For some responders to this tweet, it was Kim’s “right now” that got them — it seemed that the reality star understood that not everyone was rich enough to purchase a life undeterred by coronavirus, but not that, even without a pandemic, the things she considers birthday treats will never be financially possible for nearly everyone who follows her.

Kim Kardashian’s private island 40th birthday party in a pandemic is actually fine, all thing considered.

Kim Kardashian shared on Tuesday that for her 40th birthday a few days ago, she rented a private island and flew in her closest friends and family to celebrate with her there. She also posted some glamour shots of herself and her guests looking like they were all having a grand old time. People on Twitter are mad about this, because they think it was insensitive for (the normally spartan and frugal) Kardashian to brag about her trip in the middle of a pandemic that has ended and irreparably harmed so many lives—not to mention canceled quite a few birthday parties.

But these critics must have misunderstood Kardashian’s words. Didn’t they see that she started out by saying how “humbled” she felt about the trip? If you use any form of the word “humble,” nothing else you say matters. You’re in your own little humble bubble, which in this case was nested inside Kim’s kwarantine bubble. And Kim actually said she was humble twice—she was also “humbly reminded of how privileged” she is—so she should really be double-protected here.

Besides, Kim was turning 40, which is an age many people have never turned, especially while being so humble. Kardashian had the original idea to invite “some of the people who have helped shaped [sic] me into the woman I am today,” i.e. her friends and family. Most people do not think to do this. Perhaps because they are not humble enough?

In a Twitter thread, Kardashian went on to describe, vaguely, the logistics of this birthday trip: “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.” Oh to travel to a private island to pretend things are normal for a brief moment in time! But this explanation left several questions unanswered. If Kim asked everyone to quarantine and go through “health screens,” how did she surprise them? Was a doctor supervising all of this? How much did he or she get paid? There’s at least one person in the background of the photos Kim posted who looks like he’s employed by whatever resort or living situation everyone is in—what kind of protection and testing did her get?

In truth, I do see how someone might misconstrue this breach of quarantine as yet another celebrity demonstrating how

Kim Kardashian Broke CA’s Non-Essential Travel Ban for 40th Birthday Vacation in Tahiti

From ELLE

For months, California has been under a non-essential travel ban, with the state advising citizens to avoid traveling unless it is urgent or for business. “You can travel for urgent matters or if such travel is essential to your permitted work,” the state wrote on its COVID site. “Even though businesses around the state are opening up, avoid traveling long distances for vacations or pleasure as much as possible. This is to slow the spread of the coronavirus.”

But Kim Kardashian and her family ignored these guidelines again so Kim could celebrate her 40th birthday with a six-day vacation in Tahiti, according to E!. She rented a private island and flew all her guests using a private jet. These out-of-state trips are something the family has done several times this year, controversially and despite soaring COVID numbers across the country.

This was not a small birthday party with just Kim’s immediate family, the people who she is quarantining with. Kim brought a big group of people. It’s unclear from E!’s report whether they were all tested for COVID-19 beforehand or whether they wore masks on the trip. In the photos Kim, Kendall Jenner, and Kourtney Kardashian shared of themselves there, they weren’t wearing masks.

California currently is allowing outdoor gatherings for people from “no more than three separate households” where the duration is “two hours or less.” The state recommends masks be worn and social distancing be observed.

“She chartered the Crystal Luxury Jet to fly everyone privately and they left LA early Tuesday morning, the day before her actual birthday,” a source told E!. “They had multiple events to celebrate Kim turning 40. It was a mix of family, old friends and newer friends and they took over the entire private island for an incredible week of activities.”

Guests included Kim’s mother Kris Jenner, her sisters Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner, and her brother, Rob Kardashian. Kylie, it seems, skipped out and was in Houston with her daughter Stormi and ex-boyfriend Travis Scott. Don’t worry, they aren’t getting back together, a source assured E!. “They are just friends. There’s nothing going on with them.”

But Kim’s birthday vacation, even with Kylie’s absence, was full of people. “Everyone close to Kim from all aspects of her life were there,” E!’s source said. “Kris, Corey, Kourtney, Khloe and Tristan, Kendall and Rob joined along with several girlfriends that she has known since grade school.”

“Everyone came together and showed their love and respect for her,” the source added. “They had slide show of her life and nightly parties. During the day, they took boat rides, went snorkeling, walked on the beach and tanned by the pool. It was an epic and memorable week that nobody will forget.” It’s a shame that it couldn’t wait until after the pandemic was over.

According to Page Six, Kim has arranged for 30 of her closest people to take a private jet to a secret private island.

While it’s speculated that the destination will be a Kardashian favorite like the Caribbean or Bora Bora, Kim is not telling her guests an exact location – even mother Kris.

Guests will only find out where they’re headed to after being picked up in the wee hours next week and boarding their private jet. 

The group has already been tested for COVID-19 once and will be retested over the weekend to make sure everyone is safe, according to a source. 

Special vacation: Kim is reportedly taking her 30 closest friends and relations to a private island to celebrate her 40th birthday. People are speculating the destination could be in Bora Bora or The Caribbean, but so far Kim is keeping it a complete secret

In typical Kardashian fashion, no expense was spared to celebrate Kim’s big day.

Family matriarch Kris Jenner, 64, planned the pricey soiree along with A-list event guru, Mindy Weiss, but made sure strict COVID-19 guidelines were followed. 

In addition to staff of the event wearing masks, everyone working and attending had to take a coronavirus test prior to entering. 

The SKIMS founder was told she was being taken to a photoshoot and was speechless when she arrived at the Los Angeles venue.

“What the f**k is this?” She asked in the back of the car. 

After she got out of the SUV, a voice over from her dad, the late Robert Kardashian, began playing outside the entrance. 

As a nod to her very first birthday party, a pair of white ponies stood outside the door to greet the birthday girl as she walked in. 

“I would cry but I am so in shock. And don’t want to ruin my makeup,” the stunned reality star said as she walked into the bash.

The mom-of-four admitted the second she heard her father’s voice, she “knew what was going on.” 

“This isn’t a photoshoot,” Kim exclaimed as she walked into a room of her closest family and friends waiting. 

Kim – who stunned in a skintight shimmering gold dress – walked right into her husbands arms.

“Oh my god you’re here? This is why I couldn’t find you,” she exclaimed to Kanye during the big reveal.
