Kim Kardashian trolled for 'egoistic' selfie video that bothered those riding elevator with her
While Kim Kardashian made it seem like she was alone, the video had others pressed against the elevator walls to make room for her 'selfie' recording
‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star Kim Kardashian has found herself on the receiving end of online flak after a selfie she shared on her Instagram account. Kardashian showed off her Outdoor Basics outfit in an elevator in an Instagram story.
In the selfie video, the reality television star showed off her fit physique, while describing what she was wearing. She mentioned the brand and that this combination of leggings and a crop top was something she wore regularly.
Unfortunately, the elevator selfie look was ruined by the presence of others in the frame. While Kardashian made it seem like she was alone in the elevator, viewers could see another person's torso and legs in the frame. They seemed to be pressed up against the elevator walls in order to make room for Kardashian to take her solo video.
This did not go down well with many, especially fans. On the subreddit called KimKardashianPics -- a forum with more than 14,000 members who seem to share a general appreciation of “pictures of Kim Kardashian, regularly voted sexiest woman in the world, and without a doubt, proprietor of the most coveted booty in the world” -- a screengrab of this story was shared with “Love how she's pushed people to one side of the elevator so she can get her shot lol”. Comments on the forum varied but many came after Kardashian. “And the bad part is we can see there feet so she gotta know everybody def calling her a b**** for this one next she’s gonna push one of her kids down just to get a selfie,” said one Reddit user in the comments. Another person commented, “It’s wrong because she is taking a selfie in a public elevator forcing people to go to the side. She obviously asked them to move, and even if she didn’t she should have just waited instead of probably annoying the other people.”
One fan commented, "It's her two assistants pressed flat into pancakes against the elevator wall for me," to which another person replied, "That's what I noticed too. Like squished against the wall." One person also said, "Ego much? She didn't title her picture ‘Selfish’ for nothing! This the era of Kim K and she's been letting it known by doing THIS."
Kardashian and all four of her kids attended Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ release party in Atlanta on Thursday, August 5. This comes in the midst of the couple’s ultra-public divorce that’s been going on for some time now. Kardashian was reportedly seen standing by the stage at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium in a black catsuit and shades alongside North, eight, who also donned all black with her hair in braids.
Most recently, West was linked with model Irina Shayk. The two were seen together in Paris. While sources initially said that the two had been dating for a few months and that Shayk was smitten with the rapper; other sources later said that as per the model, she wanted to just remain friends with the rapper.
