Tone-deaf tries to claw back favour by encouraging people to vote

has attempted to claw back public favour by encouraging her 190million followers to vote after grabbing their 'attention' with her controversial 40th birthday trip.

The reality star, 40, shared yet more photos from the multi-million dollar holiday amid a mounting wave of disgust over the trip to Marlon Brando's resort in Tahiti that took place during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Posting glamorous images of herself and mother Kris Jenner, 64, Kim encouraged her fans to go out and vote in the presidential election, without endorsing either Republican Donald or Democrat Joe Biden. 

Kim wrote: 'Now that I have your attention...this a reminder to VOTE. 6 days.' 

The post marks the first time Kim has addressed the backlash surrounding her birthday trip, which saw her widely criticised for flying out 30 of her family members and closest friends to celebrate with a sense of 'normality' on a private island.

Kim has been trending on social media as everyone from fans to celebrities took issue with the vacation taking place amid global lockdowns. 

In the snaps, Kim wore a figure-hugging orange bustier and midi skirt, which featured bold prints and were teamed with a pair of black sandals.

'Momager' Kris wore a frilly white dress with sheer sleeves, which was styled with statement earrings and a pair of silver earrings.

In a third image, Kim was flanked by one of her friends as they made their way to dinner on the tropical private island. 

Despite her best efforts to win back approval from her followers, the post appeared to stir more disgust from the public as they commented below the images, stating that Kim was merely using it as an excuse to 'post more vacay snaps'.
