Khloé Kardashian talks Kim's 40th birthday trip

During a chat on The Ellen Show this week, Khloé Kardashian spoke about her sister's 40th birthday trip.

Kim faced backlash online after she boasted about being able to fly her inner circle to a private island to celebrate.

While Khloé understands the frustration, she also thinks her sister deserves to celebrate her 40th the way she sees fit.

The 36-year-old began by telling Ellen that she doesn't know the extent of the backlash.

She added, "But this year is a frustrating year, I get it."

"But also it's her 40th and this is something that she really wanted to do for us, it was such a nice thing."

Khloé went on to say everyone was extremely grateful for the tourism.

"So many people said that we were their first party or guest that they've had in months!"

"And what it's done for them to be able to pay their bills or just do stuff for their family."

What Kim said

If you missed it, this is the tweet that sparked the backlash:

'After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.'

'We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more.'

'I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is. #thisis40'

Many took to social media branding her comments, 'tone deaf,' amid a global pandemic.

One user tweeted, 'I've heard smart people that I like argue that Kim Kardashian is smart and good and it's nice to be reminded that she is, in fact, dumb and bad.'

While another said, 'This is tone deaf and insensitive.'

Kim still hasn't commented.
