Kendall Jenner Threw A Packed Party During The Pandemic And Twitter Lost It

Published: (Updated: ) in Australian News by .

Courting backlash is the Kardashian way. 

And Kendall Jenner sure courted a lot of it by throwing a packed, maskless birthday and Halloween party over the weekend, as new US coronavirus cases climbed to nearly 100,000 per day.

Los Angeles County leads US counties in confirmed cases and deaths, but there seemed no awareness of that at Kendall’s birthday bash in Hollywood, which counted guests like The Weeknd, model Winnie Harlow, Scott Disick, Justin Bieber, Jaden Smith and more.

Kendall, who turns 25 on November 3, was “having a great time” and personally greeted guests, who numbered “at least” 50, E! News reported. 

“Everyone was drinking and dancing on the outdoor terrace. It was a huge dance party,” an anonymous source told E!. “Kendall was the star of the show.”

Kylie Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian also attended the party.

The bash followed Kim’s own 40th celebration on a private island that drew what seemed like global outrage. Also, a “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” episode revealed Khloe Kardashian tested positive for coronavirus earlier this year. 

“Let me tell you, that shit is real,” Khloe said in a widely shared clip from the episode. “But, we’re all gonna get through this.”

Perhaps in an attempt to limit the inevitable backlash to Kendall’s party, a note photographed at the celebration admonished attendees not to share photos on social media. Nevertheless, both Kylie and Kim posted photos from the bash on Instagram. 

Kendall later posted photos with friends from the party, but turned off the comments on her Instagram. 

But she couldn’t turn off the comments on Twitter:

My face when I found out Kendall Jenner had a Halloween party of 100 guests and had them get rapid tested before entering while the rest of us can’t even get non rapid tested if we are in contact with someone with covid but have no symptoms.

I hate it here. pic.twitter.com/7wdprLQgR6

The Kardashians + Jenners
Justin & Hailey Bieber
The Weeknd
Doja Cat
Saweetie & Quavo

were all in attendance, not sure who else. Yes they might have had tests, but it still sets a bad example morally and no, I’m not making a fuss just because I wish I was at a party..

‘Do not post photos on social media.’ They know that what they’re doing is wrong but they do it anyway 💀💀💀💀💀

Though Kim didn’t directly address the criticism of her over-the-top 40th birthday bash, she did caption an Instagram post: “Now that I have your attention…this a reminder to VOTE” and continued to post pictures of Kendall’s party. 

It seemed as though Kendall’s party costume ― and her “vote” flag ― followed Kim’s messaging: 

me as Pamela Anderson in Barb Wire … GO VOTE!!! pic.twitter.com/eUaMWtb7Ii

Though that didn’t work, perhaps Kris Jenner or another Kardashian-Jenner sister will appear on Ellen DeGeneres’ show to explain. 

Khloe addressed Kim’s celebration during an appearance on “Ellen” last week. 

“I don’t really know the extent of [the backlash], but this year is a frustrating year,” Khloe told the talk show host. “I get it. I think there’s so many frustrations going on for everybody. But also it’s her 40th. This is something that she wanted to do for us. It was such a nice thing.”

The Good American founder added that she wanted her sister to “focus on just how beautiful it was and what she did for everybody.”

“I don’t want that to overshadow all the greatness,” she added.
