Kim Kardashian has been slammed by fans after making a "clueless" post on Instagram, flaunting her non-distanced extravagant 40th birthday celebrations as though there isn't an international pandemic.

Alongside photos of her friends and family members including Kourtney, Khloe and Rob Kardashian, as well as Kris and Kendall Jenner, Kim wrote, "For my birthday this year, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than with some of the people who have helped shaped me into the woman I am today.

"Before COVID, I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment."

From Katie Price to Kim Kardashian...

Have these celebs had a little help about the face? In our opinion, hell yes! Although some of them have been coy about whether they've had surgical attention to help with their striking looks. Take a look and decide for yourself if it's all down to good genes or...not.

She went on to explain how she and her "closest inner circle" all quarantined for two weeks before flying to a private island to celebrate the middle Kardashian sister's 40th birthday.

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

"I realise 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."

Hmmm, we're not sure humbly is the word, Kim. To mimic the sentiments of one fan in the comments section, "Read the room Kim."

Finishing off her lavish upload, Kim wrote, "#thisis40."

Yes, it is. If you're a millionaire, that is. We think we prefer the version with Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd.

Fans weren't happy, either, and comments on the post weren't a bunch of laughs, to say the least.

One follower wrote, "Last time I checked, there was a pandemic going on, yet rich people are still holding parties and going on trips."

"'A simple luxury' lol ok," commented another.

Ouch, we wouldn't want to be Kim right now. Well, tbf, we wouldn't say no to a private island 🤔.

Tweets about the post were flying, too and American TV host Michelle Khare even stepped up to have her say on the matter.

She wrote, "All of the Kardashians have continued to travel this entire pandemic on private jets with the protection of wealth and the best medical expertise at their disposal.

"To insinuate this vacation is new, unique, or a long time waiting is absolutely ridiculous."

Looks like things have gone downhill for the 40 year old since she announced earlier this month that she'd be starring in the new Paw Patrol movie.

Announcing the news that she's "officially a cool mom" on Twitter, Kim shared with followers a voice clip of her character from the movie.

Well, cool-Paw-Patrol-character-voicing mum? She may be. Able to read a room? We're not sure about that.

Ok, we sound like Yoda now, which means it's time to stop.
