We’re all adjusting to the “new normal” with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic changing the way we interact with one other.
Kim Kardashian came under fire last month when she threw herself a lavish 40th birthday party on a private island so she and some of her closest friends could “pretend things were normal” for just a moment.
Fans were irate and called out the “privileged” star on social media. “Hi Poors! I know you’re hurting right now and can’t figure out how you’re going to feed your family, but please enjoy these photos of my family’s expensive vacation! I know I’m lucky to be so fabulously wealthy so I’ll make mention of it to sound sympathetic (I’m really not tho),” one user commented sarcastically.
The lavish soirée was thrown at Harriet’s Rooftop in Los Angeles with guests warned not to “post on social media of any kind,” according to TMZ. Of course, many of the guests in attendance — including Kylie Jenner, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd and many more — were photographed without masks and not adhering to social distance guidelines.
OK! takes a look at celebs who were caught partying amid COVID-19.
Kendall Jenner was dragged for celebrating her 25th birthday. Doesn't she realize that blowing out the candles on her cake spreads tons of germs?! We'll pass on dessert.
Scott Disick posed with an unrecognizable The Weeknd, who dressed as Eddie Murphy's character in 'The Nutty Professor.' The two were *way* too close for comfort this Halloween weekend.
Supermodel Winnie Harlow and Kylie Jenner were seen celebrating Kendall's birthday in Los Angeles, and got extra close for a snap.
Justin Bieber dressed as Woody from Toy Story and sat awfully close to Jaden Smith, who was wearing an oxygen mask dressed as a coronavirus patient. Tone deaf much?
Scott Disick channeled his inner Ace Ventura next to the birthday girl.
Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey Baldwin threw a non socially distant party in their Beverly Hills mansion in August.
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. pic.twitter.com/cIFP7Nv5bV— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) October 27, 2020
Kim Kardashian got roasted on social media for throwing a lavish 40th birthday party amid the ongoing pandemic. One user commented, "Kim, there's people that are dying," with a meme from 'Jurassic Park.'
RHOC's Kelly Dodd was forced to clarify that she indeed tried to follow social distancing guidelines after posting a picture of herself and her girlfriends celebrating her wedding shower without masks. She posted a follow-up photo, saying, “People were asking where are the masks?? Well here they are!! Thanks @vvndao.”
Ben Affleck's girlfriend Ana de Armas was spotted out in June with her friends, completely forgetting we were in the middle of a pandemic.
