The Kardashian-Jenner family rose to fame in the early 2000s, thanks to the success of their reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Over the years, fans watched the family change and grow, launching multiple successful businesses, welcoming babies, and going through personal troubles. The Kardashians are beloved by many, but for some fans, the family’s charm is marred by their apparent infatuation with themselves. In fact, some fans recently took to Reddit to complain about the Kardashian Instagram videos that bother them the most — and critics say it’s proof the family is way too obsessed with self-image. 

The Kardashian family is well known for their social media presence

The Kardashians first became popular with fans in 2007, after Keeping Up with the Kardashians debuted on the E! network. While Kim Kardashian became the runaway star of the series, every single member of the family, down to the youngest, Kylie Jenner, discovered their own unique niche in the entertainment space. The Kardashians embraced social media trends from the start, and most members of the family regularly engage with their followers on Instagram and Twitter.

Instagram has quickly become the chosen social media of the Kardashian-Jenner family, and throughout the week, the Kardashians post everything from heavily made-up selfies to business promotions. While many fans love seeing the posts that the reality stars make on Instagram, some videos, in particular, have really rubbed fans the wrong way. 

What did fans on Reddit say about the worst Kardashian Instagram videos?

Recently, some fans on Reddit discussed their least-favorite Kardashian Instagram videos. “DAE find it cringe/embarrassing when they post videos and zoom in like they’re completely in love with themselves?” the original poster on Reddit asked. They went on to detail: “I get so embarrassed on their behalf because it’s so ridiculous!!! Literally Narcissus discovering his face in the water’s reflection and falling in love with it.”

Several critics chimed in to agree, with one noting “Yes! That’s why I can’t follow them lol, it’s so weird to me. One of my friends does it so I’ve muted her stories. I can’t deal with people being in love with themselves, top cringe.”

Another fan wrote, “Remember it wasn’t a good look to be “conceited?” I’m so confused that self obsession is a good thing today.”

Some people on the Reddit thread disagreed with the original poster, arguing that self-love is a good thing. One such fan wrote, “If you’ve got it, flaunt it. Life is too damn short to be constrained by puritanical concepts of how you should or should not behave.”

Are fans getting sick of the Kardashians?

With the final season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians in the rearview mirror, many fans are looking to the future and seeing what the next few years hold for the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Although the family has announced that they will soon be returning to reality television with starring roles in an all-new Hulu series, details on the promised show are sparse.

More worrisome is the fact that a number of fans just aren’t as invested in the famous family as they once were. Kim and Khloé Kardashian, as well as Kylie Jenner, have pulled back from the spotlight in recent months, showing that they aren’t as open with fans as they were at the beginning of their careers — and it could very well be that people have lost a lot of interest in the Kardashian-Jenner clan. That boredom, combined with the onslaught of “annoying” social media videos, could mean that the era of the Kardashians is over for good.
