Kim Kardashian posted yet more pictures from her lavish 40th birthday bash on Wednesday, despite facing criticism over the trip to Marlon Brando’s The Brando Resort in Tahiti that took place during the pandemic.

The 40-year-old reality star shared a snap of herself with sisters Kourtney and Khloe after being hit was waves of disapproval online, with fans calling the event ‘tone deaf and insensitive’ and the likes of Colin Hanks and Ronan Farrow mocking her attempt at a humble caption.

However, it seems that the wife of Kanye West is continuing to ignore the outcry, despite trending on social media as everyone from fans to celebrities took issue with the luxurious vacation, reported to be worth $1million, taking place amid global lockdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The mother of four posted a bikini snap of herself while posing with her siblings Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian.

Kim, 40, showcased her impossibly flat midsection and curvy form in a tiny taupe colored bikini top and matching bottoms. The birthday girl had on a black bandanna with her tresses sleek and loose around her.

Kim captioned the beach and bikini image with: ‘Girls just wanna have sun.’ 

Fewer than 30 people went to the Tetiaroa atoll where on the island the 35 luxury villas rent for up to $20,000 a night and have private pools. 

But they had to charter an 88-seater Crystal Cruises jet to get fewer than 30 people there on October 20.

‘The group was limited to Kim’s closest family and friends. Everyone on the trip was repeatedly tested for COVID before they left in the middle of the night on a private Boeing 777,’ A source told the Page Six.

‘Once on the island they had lavish dinner after dinner, spa treatments and hikes through the nature sanctuary. There was no expense spared. Everyone was banned from posting on social media by Kim to ensure her privacy.’ 

Kim tried to diffuse the situation on Wednesday by posting a photo with her mother and the caption:  ‘Now that I have your attention…This is a reminder to VOTE. 6 days.’

On the same day a Keeping Up With the Kardashians trailer showed a coronavirus scare, Khloe also showcased her trim midsection, opting for a leopard two piece; she wore her bikini bottoms high up on her hips.

The brunette, 36, wore her tresses loose, adding large framed sunglasses to finish off her beachy look for French Polynesia. 

Soon after Khloe – who was joined on the island by her daughter True’s father Tristan Thompson – shared four snaps of herself rocking a pink and black bikini during a mini photoshoot in the water.

Shortly after posting the images, Khloe turned off commenting for the post. 

The images were posted on Wednesday morning, the same day a new preview for their show Keeping Up With The Kardashians was released – where Khloe revealed she tested positive for COVID-19.

The episode was filmed months ago, with the star saying her symptoms included vomiting and headaches. 

‘I just found out that I do have corona, I have been in my room … it was really bad for a couple of days, vomiting and shaking and hot and cold,’ Khloe said. 

‘I suffer from migraines but this was the craziest headache, I wouldn’t say it was a migraine,’ the star added.

‘The coughing – my chest would burn when I coughed. My throat is still not fully recovered clearly, let me tell you that sh** is real but we are all going to get through this. 

‘I pray if we follow orders and listen we’re all going to be OK.’

Kris Jenner is then seen in a hoodie as she says, ‘I of course then jumped on the phone with every doctor that would take my call, trying to find somebody that could help her.’

Kim was filmed before the positive result came in.

‘We’re just anxiously awaiting the results to see if Khloe has it or not, my gut tells me that she does just because she is so sick,’ said Kim in a bedroom.

‘And that really scares me for her because I can tell now she is getting really scared and is nervous about it.

‘I guess we will just wait and find out.’

Kim has been heavily criticized for taking a lavish vacation amid COVID-19 when so many people are dying from COVID-19 and suffering from losing their jobs, as well as not being able to get tested or see family for long periods of time.

She claimed in her caption that all her guests received ‘multiple health screens’ and quarantined two weeks before she surprised them with a trip to a private island to celebrate her 40th birthday.

Followers were completely caught off guard by Kim’s long-winded post detailing the extravagant affair.

She wrote: ’40 and feeling so humbled and blessed.

‘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. 

‘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. 

‘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.

‘We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more. I realize 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. #thisis40’

Twitter was set alight with commentary for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star as memes flooded the site in between thought-provoking anecdotes.

‘I feel like, maybe, you should not have shared this with us and just kept it to yourself,’ Twitter user @sullypov wrote.

‘People are dying and the rest of us are suffering as we watch the body count rise quarantined in our homes. This is tone deaf and insensitive.’
