Perhaps, the matriarch of the Kardashian family should have timed her announcement better. When Kris Jenner took to Twitter to express her excitement about landing a massive deal with Disney-owned streaming platform Hulu, her announcement was met with criticism. She was slammed as tone-deaf for breaking the Hulu news while her daughter and lawyer-in-training Kim Kardashian vigorously rallied to stop Brandon Bernard’s execution. 

Kris tweeted on December 11: "Excited to announce our new multi year partnership with Hulu and Star and what’s to come in 2021 @hulu."



 

Meanwhile, Kim got on a call with Bernard ahead of his execution and following their conversation, the reality star told her followers that she "lost it" during the last call with him. She shared in her Instagram stories that it was the "hardest call she's ever had". 

She wrote, "Just spoke to Brandon for what will likely be the last time. Hardest call I've ever had. Brandon, selfless as always, was focused on his family and making sure they are okay. he told me not to cry because our fight isn't over."

"When he told me he's claustrophobic and they offer to give him a shot of Sedative to calm him down before they put him in the chair and he just didn't want to panic, I literally lost it. I had to mute my phone so he wouldn't hear me cry like that," she wrote further. 

Kim first drew attention towards Bernard's case after his lawyer appealed to President Donald Trump citing regrets by five jurors from his trial who said Bernard should instead serve a life sentence.

In the days leading to Bernard's execution, Kim shared a string of tweets, urging the justice department to stop the death penalty. On December 10, a day before his execution, she wrote, "If executed tomorrow, Brandon will die having never been able to touch his children. All his visits with them have been behind glass, though this has not deterred him from being the best father he can be from prison." Following his execution, she wrote, "I’m so messed up right now. They killed Brandon. He was such a reformed person. So hopeful and positive until the end. More importantly he is sorry, so sorry for the hurt and pain he has caused others."



 



 

The fact that Kris was rejoicing a new business deal while Kim was mourning Bernard's loss didn't sit well with some Internet users, who called out the momager for her insensitivity and extremely bad timing.

One tweeted, "How low are your morals that you’re announcing this while @KimKardashian and the rest of us are trying to #SaveBrandonBernard #BrandonBernard." Another added, "Why aren’t you tweeting about #BrandonBernard instead of your f***ing deal with Hulu My god." Adding to the above tweets one said, "I don’t know think this is a good time for you to post when Kim is fighting to save someone’s life. Not good timing at all."

Another said, "Kim definitely gets her empathy, Compassion, and drive to help people from her dads side of the family."
