Kourtney Kardashian seemed to fire back after she was slammed for reportedly exceeding her household’s water budget. Here’s what fans previously said about the reality star, how Kardashian responded, and what fans are saying now.
Fans slammed Kourtney Kardashian after reports exposed her excessive water use
Kourtney Kardashian came under fire when reports revealed that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star had significantly exceeded the water budget for her household. According to CBS Los Angeles, water records proved that Kardashian’s house, “an $8 million home in Calabasas,” had “used 245% of its allotted water budget in May – the fourth month it went over budget.”
The 43-year-old has a lifestyle brand and website called Poosh, where she touts her environmentally-friendly lifestyle with articles like “Ways Kourt Has Changed Her Home to Be More Eco-Friendly” and “21 Daily Habits to Help Protect Mother Earth.”
One fan commented, “She should be ashamed and she should be heavily fined. Whoever buys her ‘I’m an ecological gal’ shtick needs to wake tf up,” while another wrote, “Monster hypocrite. Is all of her wellness & environmentalism a lie or image?”
Kourtney Kardashian seemingly reacted to the water use criticism with a photo
On Aug. 17, not long after reports surfaced about Kourtney Kardashian’s excessive water usage, the reality star seemingly responded to the backlash on social media.
She posted a photo on her Instagram Stories (which automatically disappear after 24 hours) showing what appeared to be her yard (based on the pool, which fans recognize from Kardashian’s other social media photos). The lawn took up the majority of the photo, and was visibly under-watered, having turned yellow and brown.
The reality star’s grass is usually a lush, vibrant green, thanks to frequent and thorough watering.
Fans are divided on how they feel about the reality star’s photo
Kourtney Kardashian fans noticed the photo of her backyard in her Instagram Stories, and many took it as the reality star’s response to the criticism over her excessive water usage. They are giving mixed reactions to the yellow grass on a Reddit thread titled, “Wait this is a good thing right???? Did she stop watering????”
“First she flew commercial and now she’s showing us that she’s not watering her lawn,” wrote one fan. “She’s really trying to distance herself from her climate criminal sisters ?.”
Another fan opined, “They cut her off! Or put a limiter on her! It’s so insane what she did with her water intake for her home.”
Others believe Kardashian genuinely cares about the environment and has changed her water usage. “You know what, I’ll take it,” wrote one fan. “Hopefully she’s taking this seriously and has realized the negative impact she has had on the environment.”
“Whatever reason – she’s doing something right or might be influencing other[s] to do the same,” commented another fan. “Who cares why she does it, at least at a good thing for the climate.”
