TThe scariest thing that happened this Halloween did not take place in a haunted house or involve monsters, vampires, or ghouls. (Well, that last part is up for your act.) No, the most terrifying horror movie was released on Kylie Jenner’s Instagram story, like the Twitter account. @lollindz reported Sunday morning.
He showed Kendall Jenner in her Halloween / birthday party jumpsuit, which at least 100 people attended, blowing out candles on her cake as a waiter in a face mask, standing inches from her, backs off.
Not even a week has passed since the Kardashian-Jenner clan sparked global outrage over their deaf trip to a private island to celebrate Kim’s 40th birthday. Once again, the family were caught throwing a raging party in West Hollywood where, like on the private island, only the waiters appear to be wearing masks.
“Taken,” of course, is an inelegant word for it, as the pandemic’s most socially active globetrotters have painstakingly documented each bubbling evening on their social media pages.
I’m not Dr Fauci, so forgive me for not being fully briefed on all of the COVID-related security protocols that we simple plebeians are forced to adhere to in order to, uh, not die. But I don’t believe the rules around the length of quarantines, social distancing, and not throwing another raging party within a week of your last in an entirely different country have exemptions for people who take private planes.
And so there is this waiter holding the cake, a person, like so many American workers right now, in danger just by doing her job, as a model who made international news for partying. in a pandemic cannon detonated particles from its mouth a few inches away. of his face.
Both events, so stifled by privilege, illusion and bad taste, are baffling for a celebrity family who, at least at one point, were uncomfortable with the media. Now that mindful awareness has morphed into a calloused addiction.
It’s not just that they’re frolicking around those metaphorical middle fingers for the rest of us like they’re dancing around a fucking Maypole. It is because they boast about it publicly. Kim framed her birthday party as a channel of our universal desire to feel that things are normal right now; she and Jenner followed the immediate attention of the scandals with false calls to vote.
The whole thing is almost despicable in nature, the decision to document these things on social media akin to some sort of celebrity nastiness. They have become almost Trumpians in their blatant disregard of COVID guidelines, organizing rallies we are all instructed not to have, then half-heartedly explaining how they downplayed risk, put service workers at risk, and then have boasted about it publicly.
They might as well rename their show for its final season, Tracking the Kardashians’ COVID Terrorism.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said in an Oct. 31 memo, “The scariest thing residents can do tonight for Halloween is get together with other people outside of your home. home to celebrate, ”given the record rise in cases across the country. It stated that “Residents who meet with up to two other households should only do so outdoors, wearing a face covering and keeping a distance of six feet at all times.”
The approximate number of attendees at Jenner’s party was 100, according to TMZ. If you want to know what other celebrities have found appropriate, let alone sure to attend, the site listings: Justin and Hailey Bieber, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Scott Disick, Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner, Jaden Smith , Paris Hilton, The Weeknd, Justine Skye, Quavo, Doja Cat, Winnie Harlow and Saweetie.
Entertainment tonight reported that everyone, including employees, had a quick COVID test when they arrived at Harriet’s rooftop at 1 Hotel for the party and could only go up to the party once they tested negative . Even with this precaution, Jenner and the party organizers knew the optics of what they were doing were wrong, as event flyers reportedly said, “Take all the photos you want, but please don’t post. on social media of any kind.
No one is naive here. It has been perfectly clear from the start of the pandemic that in our new reality, the rich and famous will find ways to minimize disruption to their lives and access to safety, health care and normalcy, which the rest of us won’t.
Quick Tests for Kendall Jenner’s Halloween Party At a time when testing is scarce for teachers and students forced back to school, essential workers can’t afford the time or cost of frequent testing , and the rest of America is being told not to. seeing their families for the holidays because there aren’t enough tests available, it’s absolutely infuriating. But predictable.
“And so there is this server who holds the cake, as a model who made international news for having participated in a pandemic of cannons that exploded particles from his mouth a few inches from his face.“
Still, it’s the characterization that they’re not doing anything wrong, which one would assume they feel when sharing photos and videos from those parties, that stings the most. It’s not just when Kim envisions her birthday trip as something we would all do if we could. Maybe she’s right. The point is, we can’t. But we can do the things we’ve done – wear masks, stay home, only get together outdoors, quarantine after travel, not throw massive parties – because that’s a sign of respect for those around us who are at risk and because sacrifice together is the only way to overcome this.
This is all particularly confusing given that Khloe actually battled the coronavirus. If there’s a brain cell or two in there, she and the family should be very aware that no one else should go through it. Not just anyone in the family, but also no member of the army of workers deployed to run these grotesque wealth and luxury contests, and who likely don’t have access to the same kind of health care and testing. than a fucking Kardashian.
At the crudest level, perhaps a PR savvy family could predict the potential disaster of the Q score if an outbreak or, God forbid, deaths were linked to any of these egregious events. They say the devil works hard, but Kris Jenner works harder. But Kris has nothing on Miss Rona.
We’ve talked about this before after Kim’s birthday trip, but it’s a chance to double down. There were reasons to justify the Kardashians’ reign as public figures and cultural influencers. But it was in Before Times.
The past few months have highlighted what humanity needs and the precarious power of public platforms to shape that. And no amount of SKIMS by Kim Kardashian can contain the damage the family has done to the last bits of goodwill towards them.
