Khloé Kardashian Speaks About Backlash over Kim’s Non-Masked Birthday Trip

Khloé appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, where she spoke out about the criticism Kim received after organizing a trip abroad with “20 or 25” people amid the pandemic.

“I haven’t heard a lot about it, but I did hear people were upset that we went out of town,” she said. “This year is a frustrating year — I get it. I think there’s so many frustrations going on for everybody, but also it’s her 40th and this is something that she really wanted to do. For us, it was such a nice thing.”

In case you didn’t hear, Kim shared photos from the trip on social media, showing the group in close proximity without wearing masks.

Khloé told Ellen, “Being there with all the precautions that we took … and how grateful everyone was for the tourism aspect of it. So many people said that we were their first party of guests that they’ve had in months and what it’s done for them to be able to pay their bills or to be able to do stuff for their family, just hearing those messages when we were there, we felt really good and we felt so safe.”

Well, as long as they took precaution. Right? Still, wear your masks!
