Fans Think It’s Time That the Kardashian-Jenners Start Caring About the Kinds of Press Attention They Are Getting
Anyone who has been following pop culture in the past decade has seen the Kardashian-Jenners around. The family is constantly in the news and being discussed on social media. They are highly skilled at gaining people’s attention no matter the situation.
However, the Kardashian-Jenners are notorious for getting negative press. Fans think it’s time the Kardashian-Jenners stop getting press just for the sake of it and pay attention to what it means for their reputation.
The Kardashian-Jenners have been receiving negative press during the pandemic
While the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has put a stop to many activities and events in Hollywood, the Kardashian-Jenners still managed to find ways to get attention in the media. Not all of it has been positive, however.
For example, in October, Kim Kardashian West was the talk of town when she flew her friends and family to a private island to celebrate her birthday. Although Kardashian West assured fans that everyone followed social distancing guidelines and was tested for COVID-19, she received backlash for showcasing such opulence on social media at a time when many people were struggling.
Similarly, in November, Kendall Jenner celebrated her 25th birthday with a big celebration. Social media users slammed Jenner, especially when a video of her blowing out her candles next to a masked waiter appeared online.
Fans think the Kardashian-Jenners should think about what negative press does to their reputation
There is a popular saying that goes, “No press is bad press.” It refers to the belief that, in order to remain in the public consciousness, any press attention is good.
The Kardashian-Jenners have received a lot of negative press over the years, and it has helped them stay at the top. However some fans think it’s time the Kardashian-Jenners pay attention to what negative press does to their reputation.
“Even if they get a lot of press it results in negative responses and opinions from people which probably doesn’t help them in the long run,” one fan wrote on Reddit.
Another person wrote, “So crazy how celebrities like the Kardashians will do things like this that can tarnish or even destroy their reputations without any regard to their legacies, just for some quick money… I think they need to sit and write down how they want to be remembered after they’re gone, and act accordingly, especially Kim, who was doing so good moving into law and criminal justice reform.”
A critic believes the Kardashian-Jenners are becoming less appealing to fans
The pandemic has negatively impacted many people’s lives. Death tolls in the United States continue to rise while unemployment and evictions also increased during the pandemic. As such, some onlookers believe the Kardashian’s display of opulence is less appealing to fans.
According to an article by The Atlantic, the Kardashian-Jenners became popular because they were able to strike a balance between being relatable and being otherworldly stars that others could gawk at. However, the pandemic has reportedly disrupted this balance, leading the family and their luxurious lifestyle to become less appealing in general.
