Piers Morgan brands Kim Kardashian ‘repulsive’ over lavish birthday celebrations

Piers Morgan has slammed Kim Kardashian by calling the reality star a "tone-deaf imbecile" and "repulsive" over her 40th birthday celebrations.

The Good Morning Britain presenter hit out at Kim on Twitter as she shared a series of snaps from her lavish birthday.

Kim was seen living it up on a private island as she posed with her famous siblings.

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."

"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

Piers, 55, shared her post as he ranted: "This thread is so repulsive it makes me want to vomit.

"Not that we needed confirmation but what a spoiled, tone-deaf imbecile."

Despite Piers' post racking up 7,000 likes, many disagreed with the GMB star too.

One wrote: "What a nasty tweet. Let the woman enjoy her birthday for God's sake."

Another added: "I'm not her biggest fans but she's only celebrating her birthday, chill out and watch your blood pressure."

A third asked: "Didn’t you head off on holidays during the pandemic too?"

Others were on Piers' side though, with one writing back: "I completely agree with you piers…. considering all that’s happening in the world this post from @KimKardashian is actually rather distasteful… money clearly makes you exempt from the pandemic."

Another simply told him: "Well said."

As well as Piers, Kim was also slammed by many other social media users online as she bragged about her birthday antics.

One fumed: "Kim this might be the most tone deaf thing you've ever posted. People are dying, losing their incomes and starving right now."

Another said: "People have had to say goodbye to loved ones over the phone while they died alone in a hospital. But neat trip to post all over social media while the world suffers. So humble and so down to earth, truly."

While a third chimed in: "It's not a good look to share gleeful news like this while people are struggling and dying. Look at me, I'm crazy rich, can get tested every day, fly my friends to private islands and pretend the hell you're living in doesn't exist. Oh, wait, it doesn't for me. I'm rich!"
