If it’s one thing fans know about the KarJenners it’s that they love any excuse to throw a party. Whether they’re celebrating a new age, a product launch, Christmas, or Lasik eye surgery, they are fond of spending tons of money, getting together, and partying. Most recently, the famous family congregated to celebrate Khloé Kardashian’s 36th birthday.
Thanks to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, birthdays have looked a little differently in the past three months. But, the Kardashians and Jenners have found a way to make them work. They did a car parade for Kourtney Kardashian’s birthday back in April and many of them traveled to Wyoming to celebrate North West’s birthday just last month. Khloé’s party, however, seemed to be a little more in line with what they traditionally do.
Khloé Kardashian celebrates a new age
On June 27, 2020, Khloé officially celebrated a new age. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star celebrated her 36th birthday. Naturally, millions of her fans tripped over themselves to wish the Good American owner a very happy birthday. Her siblings also posted messages wishing her a very happy birthday and sending her sweet messages of love and support. The family also posted photos and videos that indicated that Khloé had a party of some kind.
Following her birthday, Khloé took to her Instagram page to thank her fans for her birthday wishes. She also stressed that her party was family only as her family didn’t feel comfortable being around too many people given coronavirus. Though California has started to slowly open back up, social distancing, wearing masks, and limiting social gatherings to 10 people and under are all still very highly encouraged.
The Good American founder gushes about her birthday party on Twitter
“I had the most magnificent birthday!!! It was family only. We just aren’t comfortable being around too many people but the decor was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!! I wanted to thank you ALL for sending me so many beautiful and kind wishes. I love you very much. Birthday pics to be posted tomorrow. I was balancing mommy life and recovering,” Khloé posted, celebrating her new age.

But, it turns out that Khloé’s claim that her birthday party was family only wasn’t entirely true. Not only did the party boast well over 10 attendees, the photos she posted made it abundantly clear that the guest list wasn’t limited to the Kardashian/Jenner clan. Fans recognized some of Khloé’s friends in the background and felt the need to call out the 36-year-old.
Instagram users react to Kardashian’s party
Naturally, fans’ reactions differed. Some people left sarcastic comments under Khloé’s birthday pictures. Others felt she was setting a terrible example for others. And, of course, some diehard fans defended her behavior stating that she had every right to throw herself a party.”Imagine thinking social distancing and no large-party gathering rules don’t apply to you because you’re rich, 😍😍” one fan wrote to Khloé. “Nice! Setting the example for social distancing!” another fan wrote in what was presumably a sarcastic tone.
“Ridiculous. You realize there is a global pandemic happening, right? Making masks that no one is wearing into a gimmick party favor is not the solution. Wads of money spent for your own self-indulgence, and then you’re ridiculous enough to flaunt it in people’s faces? Have an ounce of humility. Shameful,” one critic penned to Khloé. Clearly, fans had mixed reactions to Khloé lying about her party. Perhaps she’d be better off simply standing in her truth next time.
