‘KUWTK: Fans Have Hilarious Ideas About a Potential Coronavirus Conversation on the Show
Months ago, the coronavirus (COVID-19) seemed to just be an epidemic that unfortunately hit a number of countries around the world. However, it has since grown into a full-blown pandemic and is now affecting almost everyone in some ways.
Because of how widespread it is, fans believe that even Keeping Up with the Kardashians will have at least one episode dedicated to the coronavirus. Based on what they know about the show, fans are even discussing how the Kardashian family will be addressing the pandemic. Read on below to find out what people think an episode about the coronavirus will look like.
The coronavirus has affected the lives of many celebrities
The coronavirus is affecting the lives of just not average people, but celebrities as well.
For example, several well-known faces have revealed that they tested positive for the virus. These stars include Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Idris Elba, Kevin Durant, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, and Prince Albert II of Monaco.
Meanwhile, many singers have canceled concerts and tours in order to promote social distancing.
The Kardashians have recently talked about the coronavirus
Although no one in the Kardashian family has been confirmed to have the coronavirus, they seem to still be monitoring the situation around them and taking precautions.
Kim Kardashian shared on Instagram a photo of her with sister Khloe and noted that the family is trying to do their best with social distancing. Kim said: “I was organizing my photos in my phone and found this and miss my sisters but we are all social distancing and staying away from each other all separately self quarantined. It’s hard but we have to do this for our safety and for everyone else’s. PLEASE do not ignore the severity of the warnings to stay inside to stop the spread of this virus. We will all get through this!”
The family seems to be setting a good example for fans to practice social distancing. They even postponed Rob Kardashian’s birthday celebration.
However, some members like Kendall Jenner came under fire for spreading misinformation. Jenner looked like she was trying to calm people’s fears about the virus by sharing on Instagram that most cases are very mild. Yet, Italian influencer Chiara Ferragni and other people slammed Jenner for downplaying the seriousness of the pandemic.
Fans try to imagine how the Kardashians will discuss the coronavirus on ‘KUWTK’
The coronavirus seems to be on everyone’s mind right now, so fans believe that the Kardashians will definitely discuss it on an upcoming episode of KUWTK. A number of viewers on Reddit are even sharing how they think this discussion will go down.
One person said: “Kourtney, deadpan voice: ‘So guys, have you heard of this coronavirus thing?’ / Kim, blank, neutral expression and monotone voice: ‘Yeah. It’s SO scary.’ / Kris: ‘No guys, this is really serious and you need to be washing your hands and taking precautions.’ / Kourtney, no emotion: ‘For SURE'”
“And also add them sitting around a table, Kourtney is on her phone and Kim is eating our a salad bowl,” another person chimed in.
On a more serious note, one fan also commented that their businesses might be affected by the pandemic, so the family would definitely have to address that situation.
The person said: “The beauty industry likely won’t see as much of an upfront impact as others in terms of loss of revenue but they will see a decline down the road as the economy gets worse and consumers stop spending. It would be incredibly tone deaf not to address it both from a health standpoint and as business owners.”
