Khloe Kardashian Reacts to Critics of Kim's Birthday Trip, Talks COVID

Khloe Kardashian is standing up for her older sister. Last week Kim Kardashian West flew the majority of her family and some close friends to a tropical getaway for her 40th birthday. 

The mother of four posted photos from the exclusive event, noting that those involved quarantined ahead of time and were all tested before they were allowed to take the trip. During Thursday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Khloe opened up about the trip, noting that about 20 to 25 people were in attendance. 

The Good American founder did not share the secret location of the trip and noted that guests weren’t even informed until they were on the plane. 

Though she calls the experience “so special,” she also responds to critics of Kim’s trip who found the posts insensitive to those suffering right now.

“I haven’t heard a lot about it, but I did hear that people were upset that we all went out of town. I don’t really know the extent of it,” Khloe admits. “But 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. This is something that she wanted to do for us. It was such a nice thing.”

While some expressed concerns for the staff who had to serve the group, Khloe says they felt nothing but appreciation from those they encountered in the tropical paradise. 

“Being there with all the precautions that we took and being there and how grateful everyone was for the tourism aspect of it,” she says. “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. We did it in the safest way I could imagine someone doing it.”

Overall Khloe hopes the backlash doesn’t mar her sister’s memory of the unique experience. 

“It was such a beautiful experience and I want Kim to focus on just how beautiful it was and what she did for everybody,” Khloe says. “I don’t want that to overshadow all the greatness.”
