The Kardashian family has never shied away from controversy, though this may be an instance where neither of the sisters involved expected there'd be blowback for their actions. Khloé Kardashian is now taking some heat from the internet, after she TP'd her sister Kourtney's yard during a time where toilet paper can be hard to find.
The news came via Kourtney Kardashian's Snapchat in which she showed her massive yard littered with toilet paper. Kardashian is heard on camera saying the culprits were Kourtney's son Mason Disick and "Koko," which is Khloé Kardashian's nickname. Per the video, it appears the younger Disick boy was having a sleepover at his aunt's, and decided to pull a prank on his mom. Check out the video, which shows the full extent of the prank and some nice landscaping.
It's hard to tell how much toilet paper was used in that video, but the short answer looks to be "a lot." Obviously the Kardashians can afford to get even the rarest types of toilet paper if they wanted, but what feels like a harmless prank to them may sting a little for anyone who has been forced to get by on a 4 pack of single ply for the past week and a half. Many called the move "tone deaf," if not a complete waste of toilet paper some would've gladly used.
It doesn't seem like Khloé Kardashian is hurting for toilet paper, because she was more than willing to blow some rolls on a prank. Under normal circumstances this would be a harmless prank, but at a time where suppliers are limiting how much toilet paper people can buy at a time, not the best time for such a prank even if you can afford it. Folks have taken notice of Khloé's supposed excess of TP, and now they want in.
Is Khloé Kardashian the cause of the shortage of toilet paper in America? Obviously no, and that's the stance some are taking as some believe Kardashian is now just a target to shield all the other people who helped create a toilet paper shortage through over-purchasing and hoarding.
Even if the Kardashian family hasn't had the same troubles as most of America in quarantine, surely they had to know TP'ing now of all times wasn't the best idea? Sure the prank was bad, but the fact that Kourtney Kardashian saw it and thought it would be well-received on social media is a mistake. Apparently that mindset runs in the family as other cuts of the clip show that Kris Jenner decided to run a video on it as well.
