The Kardashians Self-Isolated While Their Employees Kept Working & Fans Were Furious

It is no secret how popular the reality television show Keeping Up With the Kardashians is. The show that tells the real-life stories of the Kardashian and Jenner family first premiered in 2007. The show has been airing for a total of 18 seasons and for more than a decade, their loyal fans have gotten to see the celebrities from an up-close and personal perspective. Over the years their fame and reputation continued to grow. Fans were thrilled to see the show return this past March, but soon after Kim Kardashian West revealed some information that stirred the pot so to speak. Find out why some Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans are upset with how they handled production and treated their employees during the current coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

Kim revealed that the production of her family’s reality TV show was wrapped up and ending, but some fans of Keeping Up With the Kardashians were still upset. Fans and the public totally agree with the fact that the Kardashian and Jenner family shouldn’t be filming at the moment, but they are furious at how long it took the cast to make this much-needed decision. This thread captures the dissatisfaction amongst the fans of the popular reality television show. One comment posted said, “Disappointed but not surprised they chose to isolate while their companies and employees were kept working until this week. Hypocrites.”

Other users discussed how no information has been revealed regarding financial compensation for the employees while production remains shut down. Another fan calls the family and sisters out for needing to acting their age. After all, some of the sisters are approaching their 40s and, as fans pointed out, they can no longer play the naive card. There is limited information surrounding the situation, but what is available, fans do not like. Nonetheless, the simple timeline of the decision seems to have rocked the boat with many fans. 

How will the cast film the remainder of season 18 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians?

During Kim’s appearance on Fallon’s Tonight Show: Home Edition, she mentioned that the majority of season 18 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians has already previously been filmed. However, the family members are going to have to film the last episode on their own while they remain in quarantine. The cast will use iPhones and tripods to record their lives during these unusual and uncertain times. It is probably safe to say that this is a season finale twist no one saw coming. As the world continues to combat coronavirus, some Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans are hoping the cast will do more to take care of the people who help make the show possible.
