Khloé Kardashian is under fire after appearing to confirm that her family's still planning on hosting their Christmas party this year.
On the heels of intense backlash over Kim and Kendall's recent birthday blow outs, Khloé decided it would be a good idea to announce that the Kardashian-Jenners were probably throwing their annual holiday gathering — pandemic or not.
On Tuesday evening, the reality star said that she was "praying" the party was still happening in response to a fan.
"I think it will have to be way smaller obviously. And I'm totally fine with that," she said. "But we're definitely celebrating Christmas! It will just have to be small and safe. Maybe do rapid testing before."
I pray not! I think it will have to be way smaller obviously. And I’m totally fine with that! But we’re definitely celebrating Christmas! It will just have to be small and safe. Maybe do rapid testing before 😳 We have to think of what is safest— Khloé (@khloekardashian) November 10, 2020
Needless to say, Khloé's admission was almost immediately panned by critics as "tone deaf" and "selfish," especially given the fact that COVID-19 cases are on the rise.
"Why is it so hard for y'all to just stay home. Not the end of the world to not have a party damn," a commenter replied, while many also pointed out that most people are still struggling to access tests.
"Rapid testing that no one else has access to so they can have another party," a Twitter user said. "The Hunger Games was prophecy."

Meanwhile, some had harsher words for Khloé and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenners.
"@KhloeKardashian is selfish waste. If she had any empathy for other people during the pandemic she'd donate her rapid testing money to people who are actually suffering," as one respondent said — a sentiment echoed by another person who noted that countless others have had to miss out on similar events this past year.
"Fuck you and your family for your bullshit parties during a pandemic and use of rapid testing when others have a hard time getting tests," they wrote. "So many people have missed out on milestones like bdays, weddings, graduation, or worse, seeing loved ones for the last time and funerals."

Khloé has yet to respond to the backlash. In the meantime though, you can see what people are saying about her tweet, below.
How fucking tone deaf are youuuuuuu— Elizabeth Hurley (@ewescott) November 11, 2020
Must be nice to be rich and have 0 rules apply to you 🙃 https://t.co/dWWx9gOxzo— Katelyn Kempkes (@Katelyn_Kempkes) November 11, 2020
They haven't followed the rules so far, why start now? Rules apparently don't apply to the filthy rich. My son is sick now and I can't even see him. He took the COVID test on Saturday and he won't have results until Wednesday at the earliest.— The Rural Juror (@DGreenemachine) November 10, 2020
If you have to throw yourselves another party, why not try keeping it private and not post pictures on your social media. So many people look up to you guys and when they see you partying they think it’s okay to do the same. Please set a good example— empire state of mind ❤️🏙🏳️🌈🦋🌊🌊🌊🌈☀️ (@lpaigenyc) November 11, 2020
You know your fans don’t get to have Christmas with their families right? That most people are missing all the milestones this year cause of a pandemic? The selfishness of your fam is really shocking. Y’all keep throwing parties when the rest of the world is locking shit down.— Gigi (@Gigihasthoughts) November 11, 2020
