Kim Kardashian West mocked for bragging about birthday on private island amid pandemic

American personality, Kim Kardashian West has been accused of being “tone deaf” after spending her 40th birthday on a private island with a large group of family and friends.

The reality star said the trip followed “two weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine”.

Posting photos of the event on Twitter, Kardashian West said she was “humbly reminded of how privileged my life is”.

While some fans praised her candour, others said the trip was “insensitive” to families separated by Covid-19.

“This is so grotesque,” one user responded. “The rich can pretend to be normal on a private island. Actual normal people are cancelling their Thanksgiving and Christmas.”

British musician Peter Frampton also replied, saying: “Are you that insensitive you don’t realise this is not what the majority of people during the worst Covid spike yet want to hear? People are going to food banks not private islands.”
