After two weeks of multiple health screens, come to a private island with these memes x


Today, the world is talking about Kim Kardashian and her “humble” birthday island post, which has resulted in A LOT of memes. She turned 40 last week, and yesterday shared with Twitter what she did to celebrate – which was apparently toned down because of Covid, but still included jetting off to a private island.

In the thread, she said: “40 and feeling so humbled and blessed. 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.”

Kim continued: “For my birthday this year, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than with some of the people who have helped shaped me into the woman I am today.

“Before COVID, I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment.

“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.”

And now, obviously, she’s being rinsed. People are calling her “tone deaf” for having no idea what it is like to have struggled during the pandemic. One responce said: “Are you that insensitive you don’t realise this is not what the majority of people during the worst Covid spike yet want to hear? People are going to food banks not private islands.”

Another added: “Good for you. I lost four months of pay, still tied up with unemployment and have seen a significant drop in future earnings. I’m helping my daughters with childcare and virtual school for my granddaughter. Still haven’t gotten my 2019 tax return. Glad you had fun.”

But, the Kim Kardashian birthday post has become the subject of loads of viral memes – with people sharing some of the best “private islands” they have taken their “closest inner circle” to, so they can you know, pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time. Here are some of the best examples.
