Celebrities have criticized Kim Kardashian for 'insensitive' and 'unbelievably awful' social media posts that showed her enjoying a trip to a private island for her 40th birthday amid the pandemic.
Colin Hanks responded, 'let them eat cake' while Ronan Farrow joined fans and brands including the New York MoMA in creating memes to mock the reality star's caption where she claimed to be feeling 'humbled'.
But British rocker Peter Frampton advised her that sharing of images of a luxury trip with family and friends was ill-timed: 'Are you that insensitive you don't realize this is not what the majority of people during the worst covid spike yet want to hear? People are going to food banks not private islands.'
Kardashian received an overwhelming amount of backlash online after bragging about the lengths she went to make sure she could enjoy a tropical vacation.

To date, more than one million people around the world have died from the coronavirus, with nearly 43 million cases accounted for since COVID-19 began spreading in January.
Kardashian's own home state of California has tallied more than 17,000 deaths, and Los Angeles County is still in a top lockdown due to surging numbers.
The star admitted the entire family received 'multiple health screens' before embarking on the trip.
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'
