Kim Kardashian Is Getting Dragged on Twitter for Her 'Tone-Deaf' Private Island Birthday Party
Kim Kardashian has found herself in some hot water on social media after posting a series of pictures taken during her 40th birthday celebrations at an over-the-top luxury private island. 

Twitter users are not impressed with the flagrant spending and the post's "tone-deaf" quality amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Some have retaliated by dragging her as hard as they can online, with some users boosting cries to "eat the rich" and for Kim to pay more in taxes. 

"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," Kardashian wrote in the thread.

"[Forty] and feeling so humbled and blessed," she wrote "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."

According to TMZ, the media figure flew 40 of her closest friends out to the tropical paradise. Her guests included much of the extended Kardashian clan, including Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendal, Tristan Thompson, and Scott Disick, among others. Notably, Kanye West was not in attendance — or at least not during the photoshoot.
