Kim Kardashian’s Clueless, Self-Serving 40th Birthday Tweets Bring Mocking, Satirical Responses


How out of touch is Kim Kardashian? It was bad enough her family staged a 40th birthday party for her, filmed it, and no one watched it on last week’s KUWTK.”

To make matters worse, Kim– self involved, clueless, self serving– posted a series of Tweets that she took her friends to a private island for a vacation, complete with pictures. A celebration of ego. She wrote:

“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”

Why not shove it in our faces! I guess Kim really had no intention of becoming First Lady with Kanye. (LOL).

The response has been a mixture of anger and biting humor on Twitter, where her followers can’t believe the audacity of the Tweets.

One woman, Kat Kinsman, wrote back: “You know what would have felt normal for me, Kim? Not having to say goodbye to my mother over FaceTime as she was dying of COVID. Not hearing her ashes be interred over the goddamned phone so I wouldn’t put my dad and sister at risk. Rubbing in this our faces is cruel & clueless.”

All over Twitter now there are parodies of Kim’s Tweet. Jake Tapper’s was good:

So was the one from the Museum of Modern Art:

Kudos also to Molly Jong Fast who never disappoints:

Here are the unbelievable originals. My one thought is that if Trump is defeated, he takes this horror story of a family with him.
