It was only a few months ago that Kristin Cavallari faced backlash for her tone-deaf 9/11 “tribute,” where she somehow made the anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks all about herself and then fired an employee because of it. So it should shock no one that Kristin Cavallari is not exactly the most empathetic individual during a time of worldwide tragedy.
While entire countries grapple with the harsh realities of a dangerous world, Kristin Cavallari is distressed that not enough people are seeing her Instagram posts. And you thought you had it rough after your place of employment shut down.
The Very Cavallari reality TV star posted an Instagram post complaining that not enough of her 3.9 million followers are receiving her critical Instagram posts.
Cavallari started the post with an urgent-sounding “**PLEASE READ**” declaration.
“I’ve spent years building this family of followers on Instagram and now more than ever I’m having trouble reaching all of you when I need to most,” Cavallari wrote. What exactly does she mean when she says now is the time when she needs to reach out to everyone the most? Last I checked, Kristin had not replaced Dr. Anthony Fauci in the government task force and was not replacing Tedros Ghebreyesus at the World Health Organization.
“The algorithms have thrown me huge curveballs and for the first time in a long time, I have a new way to get in front of all of you within SECONDS,” the caption reads. “That is why I’m excited to announce that I’m launching a new platform where I can reach each and everyone of you every time via text!”
“No more BS. This content will be EXCLUSIVE. Intimate. And most importantly YOU WILL NEVER MISS IT,” the 33-year-old Laguna Beach star said. “All you have to do is click the link in my bio to sign up now!! I promise to deliver incredible content you won’t find anywhere else ever. First looks into new projects, my favorite recipes, products, lifestyle tips and more. Tag a friend you know who won’t want to miss out!”
Exactly what we need in this time of crisis… Kristin Cavallari’s recipe for Green Banana Muffins. I’d rather get a silver alert about my grandmother on my phone before getting a text about “lifestyle tips” from Kristin Cavallari.
So as the world seems to be burning all around us, Kristin Cavallari is most petrified that the reach of her social media isn’t what it used to be. This is so on-brand.
Even Cavallari’s own fans found her post to be troubling and how the current situation has “shown how completely out of touch celebrities are.”
“lol trouble reaching people? Why? To sell product in times of uncertainty? It’s okay Kristin … no one is worried about buying anything right now,” one person wrote on Instagram. “Take a chill pill.”
“You seem completely out of touch with what is going on in the world right now,” one comment read. “You are just worried about selling your products.”
“TONE DEAF!!!!! I hope people choose to make life easier on your worries of producing great content and just unfollow.”
“Hi, I really like your shows and have watched you since Laguna Beach, but all the holiday posting during this difficult time is inappropriate, as a lot of people are worried to leave their home,” another commenter pointed out.
“What does she do that she thinks anyone needs to know immediately? The narcissism is amazing. This pandemic has
“Do you know what’s going on in the world? Your content the past few days has no perspective. How sad. UNFOLLOW.”
But to her credit, Kristin posted this important PSA captioned: “Social distancing,” from a desolate, palm tree-dotted beach with gorgeous aquamarine waters.
She also pointed out the importance of staying in shape during the health emergency, by working out with her celebrity personal trainer in an outdoor gym surrounded by palm trees, and probably with the soothing sounds of ocean waves crashing nearby.
Don’t forget to say a little prayer for Kristin Cavallari’s Instagram reach before you go to bed tonight.
