Kim Kardashian West has been accused of being "tone deaf" after spending her 40th birthday on a private island with a large group of family and friends.

The reality star said the trip followed "two weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine".

Posting photos of the event on Twitter, Kardashian West said she was "humbly reminded of how privileged my life is".

While some fans praised her candour, others said the trip was "insensitive" to families separated by Covid-19.

"This is so grotesque," one user responded. "The rich can pretend to be normal on a private island. Actual normal people are cancelling their Thanksgiving and Christmas."

British musician Peter Frampton also replied, saying: "Are you that insensitive you don't realise 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."

'Simple luxury'

The coronavirus has killed more than 1.1 million people and has caused economic devastation worldwide.

In the US, a record number of people have claimed unemployment benefits this year as a result of job losses due to the pandemic.

Kardashian West acknowledged the impact of the disease as she posted photos from her tropical island getaway.

"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," she wrote.

"After two 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 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."
