Regardless of what people think, the Kardashians actually have many, many talents, but unfortunately, the ability to read the room is not one of them.
Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, they have pulled a bunch of batshit manoeuvres and, understandably, copped a ton of backlash as a result. But even the masses preaching proper COVID safety at them hasn’t been enough to make them change their ways… until now.
Khloé Kardashian, arguably one of the most level-headed sisters, has confirmed that for the first time in 42 years, the family has canned their almighty Kardashian Khristmas Eve party and thank fuck they FINALLY understand that this is serious and throwing a party during a pandemic is incredibly irresponsible.
When asked about the party on Twitter, Khloé responded, “The COVID cases are getting out of control in CA. So we decided that we’re not doing a Christmas Eve party this year. It’s the first time we will not be having a Christmas Eve party since 1978 I believe. Health and safety first though! Taking this pandemic seriously is a must.”

It comes after both Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner copped a heap of backlash for their respective birthdays.
The model hosted a Halloween themed birthday party last month and made her guests refrain from sharing pics on social media, probs ‘cos she knew she’d be breaking COVID rules on the night, and right on cue, her sister Kylie Jenner captured a gross-ass breach on Instagram.
In the video, Kendall can be seen blowing out the candles on a cake, which is the absolute opposite of being COVID-safe.

As the hordes went after Kendall on Twitter, momager Kris Jenner tried to cool it by telling Andy Cohen that all partygoers had to undergo a COVID test before attending and sure, Jan.
“At Kendall’s everyone got tested before they walked in the door and they had to wait a half an hour until the results were in,” she claimed, adding, that “everyone was tested … a few days before Halloween, so we were really responsible.”
She continued, “We make sure that everyone in our family and our closest friends are tested religiously so, you know, we do what we can. We try to follow the rules and if people are commenting and they’re being critical, I can’t control that. I just can control how we behave and, you know, try to do the best we can.”
Kris Jenner also said that she and her family members are constantly being tested for COVID to make sure they’re sweet to film KUWTK together.
“We are very lucky to work in an industry where we get tested once or twice a week … because of the network rules while we’re filming as you know, so that’s very strict,” she said.
Gee… now where have I heard that before?
Oh yeah, that’s right. That time Kim Kardashian flew her privileged self and her privileged fam to a private island and bragged about it on social media, thus becoming one of the most viral memes of 2020.
“40 and feeling so humbled and blessed,” she tweeted.
“There is not a single day that I take for granted, especially during these times when we are all reminded of the things that truly matter.”
“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,” she added.

Younger sis Khloé later tried to do some damage control by appearing on The Ellen Show (of all fucken’ places).
“I did hear people were upset that we went out of town,” she told the despised host.
“This year is a frustrating year — I get it. I think there are so many frustrations going on for everybody, but also it’s her 40th and this is something that she really wanted to do. For us, it was such a nice thing.”
These are just a few times this year that the Kardashians have failed to meet the moment and show their millions of impressionable followers that they’re taking this seriously and encouraging them to do the same.
But it looks like it’s finally sunk in as they’ve cancelled their iconic Khristmas bash, and considering how important that star-studded party is to them, you just know they mean business by canning it.
All I can say is: fucking FINALLY.
