Fans Are Roasting Kim Kardashian West for Sharing Tone-Deaf Post Amid the Coronavirus Pandemic
It’s safe to say that this coronavirus pandemic has officially claimed 2020.
So far, this fast-spreading virus has caused a nationwide shortage of toilet paper/ paper towels, school and job closures, as well as travel bans. It’s even prompted people to self-quarantine themselves inside of their homes.
With this crisis continuing to take a toll on individuals, some celebrities have been offering helping hands to those in need.
But, Kim Kardashian West‘s way of helping wasn’t fully embraced by fans, who are now trolling her on social media for not doing her part to assist those affected by this calamity.
Fans are urging Kardashian to help out more
It is no secret that the Kardashian-Jenners are always causing an uproar on social media.
Since the dawn of social networks, the famous bunch has found themselves receiving some intense backlash for their online content, and Kardashian West’s latest post proved to be no different.
On Mar. 16, the mom of four took to Instagram and Twitter to post a selfie with the caption, “sending everyone lots of love today.”
While many praised the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star for trying to spread positivity during this difficult time, others thought her caption sounded tone-deaf and are gently roasting her for it.
After Kardashian West posted her selfie, fans began flooding the comments, poking fun at her for “sending love” rather than money.
“Money is what we need, Kimberly,” one fan tweeted.
“Cash. We need. Cash,” another follower penned.
Some people even made use of that vintage KUWTK clip of Kourtney Kardashian saying her infamous “Kim, there’s people that are dying” clap back to show Kardashian West how much they’re in need of her financial help.
While many fans are continuing to troll Kardashian for sending love rather than cash, some followers have expressed that they’d rather receive testing kits and household necessities, since we are in the middle of a worldwide pandemic.
The reality star privately donates money to help those in need
Though many are convinced that Kardashian West hasn’t done anything to help those affected by the coronavirus, there is a chance they could be wrong about her lack of humanitarianism.
While many celebrities have been vocal about their philanthropic efforts, Kardashian isn’t ones to openly share how she helps in a time of need.
Though she recently admitted to donating money to Australia’s Wildfire Relief Efforts after being accused of not doing so, the reality star usually keeps the contributions she’s made to charities and foundations on the down-low.
That would go without saying that no one but the reality star and her trusty financial advisor knows if she actually donated to organizations that are helping people get tested or providing food and supplies during this coronavirus pandemic.
While we might not ever know if Kardashian did help out during this crisis, there have been plenty of celebrities who have and are continuing to lend a hand to those affected by the virus.
