Kylie Jenner Is Facing Major Backlash After Hitting Up A Club & Bday Party This Week Despite Cali's 'Stay At Home' Order
Makeup mogul Kylie Jenner has yet again found herself in hot water this week after she was caught hitting up an LA club on Sunday, followed by her bestie Anastasia Karanikolaou's 23rd birthday days later. Which, if we do the math, is two more outings than allowed considering her home state of California is currently under a shelter-in-home order – and two more than appropriate considering the US is clearly very much still in the midst of the pandemic with a whopping 111,000 deaths from coronavirus recorded so far.
The global pandemic didn't stop Kylie, though. On Sunday, she partied until 1:20am at Bootsy Bellows, a club opened just for her and her mates, according to the Daily Mail. Then, on Tuesday, she swung by Karanikolaou's place to celebrate her BFF’s bday with an OTT party that featured personalised pillows, matching custom hoodies and bags.
Both outings didn’t see Jenner wearing a face mask, nor did she follow social distancing rules.
People were understandably not impressed with Kylie and her friend's actions, with many pointing out that not only had she defied coronavirus restrictions, but she’d also chosen to party instead of show support by attending a protest for the Black Lives Matter movement.

@KylieJenner is not someone we should endorse. Her use of her platform is garbage (only good for Stormi videos) and she broke quarantine rules to have a birthday party for her friend. We all want to celebrate with our loved ones but can’t right now, you’re not superior girl.

Kylie has been showing support for the movement on both her Instagram and Kylie Cosmetic's – see receipts below:
since watching the most devastating and completely heartbreaking video showing the murder of George Floyd earlier this week I haven’t been able to get his face and his words out of my mind. i’ll never personally experience the pain and fear that many black people around the country go through every day but i know nobody should have to live in fear and nobody deserves a death like George Floyd and too many others. speaking up is long overdue for the rest of us. we’re currently dealing with two horrific pandemics in our country, and we can’t sit back and ignore the fact that racism is one of them. i fear for my daughter and i hope for a better future for her. my heart breaks for George Floyd’s family and friends. Don’t let his name be forgotten. keep sharing, keep watching, keep speaking out, because it’s the only way we can come together to help bring this much needed change and awareness. Rest In Peace, George Floyd. 🕊🤍
Going against the govt's lockdown guidance runs in the family. Kourtney Kardashian recently chartered a private jet to holiday in a five-star hotel in Utah over a weekend because she wanted “a change in scenery”, while Kendall Jenner took a seven-hour road trip to Sedona, Arizona with NBA player Devin Booker – a dude she wasn't isolating with – to get “some much-needed air”.
It's disappointing that after more than 110,000 deaths in the US, celebrities with arguably some of the biggest influence on the planet still don't seem to be taking coronavirus seriously – or at the very least are vain enough to think that the rules simply don't apply to them.
