Kourtney Kardashian attends the 2022 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Radhika Jones at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on March 27, 2022 in Beverly Hills, California.

Kourtney Kardashian is stirring up a lot of backlash lately on social media. This time, it’s her bathroom setup that has left many fans disgusted. Appearing on an Instagram post yesterday (March 28), Kourtney, 43, posted an aerial view of a bathroom feast.

Seems mild enough, except for the abundance of plates filled with food on the bathroom floor and toilet lid. Kardashian tagged Daring Foods in the photo, a plant-based chicken brand. Though her post received over one million likes, the comments were flooded with people appalled by the setup.

No Chill In The Comments Section

“Food in the bathroom is not the move,” wrote one person with a nauseated face emoji. Another person commented, “food on the bathroom floor gives me anxiety.” While another said of the feast, “Look at that wasted food. Classy!”

One person hilariously wrote, “So someone literally put food all over a bathroom floor and climbed up to take this photo of this mess.” Someone commented, “That bathroom scene is what nightmares are made of.”

“Why do you order so much food and take a bite maybe from 3 when people around the globe and even in your country don’t have enough food to eat!” wrote another. “It’s cute and lovely for you that you get to have clean water and a bath and be glutinous about the meal but it’s not cool to post this during one of the hardest economic times the globe is facing. It’s called reading the room!”

Another added, “With kindness, people are having to choose between buying food or medicine right now. I don’t think your photo had the desired effect.”

“Trying to be relatable?” asked another, while someone else said, “I don’t understand this. Are you trying to be unique or shock value? Bunch of food all over an old bathroom with a tub from the 80s and a plate of food on the toilet. You want to let us know you’re gross and classy at the same time? It’s going to be a new trend trashclass TM.”

Asked another, “what kind of statement is she trying to make with all the food in the bathroom? that’s disgusting….” Meanwhile, someone commented, “allowing food to be in the same vicinity as the place where you go to remove dirt from your body and poop is insane.”

Offering a correction of her name, one person wrote, “Kourtney Kartrashian* this is not it. That’s disgusting.” While another said, “Sigh. You used to be [so] classy. What happened?” Others focused on the placement of the items, writing, “Food on the toilet that’s nasty,” and “why is there a hamburger on top of the toilet?”

Per People, the Poosh founder took to her Instagram Story (which has since been deleted) to respond to the comments. She wrote alongside the photo of the feast, “the comments about this photo,” with a row of spiral eye emojis. She changed her caption to the spiral eye emojis after it previously The response comes days after the reality star addressed hate comments on the TikTok account for her Lemme brand.

6 Awful Things About Working For The Kardashians According To Ex-Employees

Kim Kardashian recently told Variety she had “the best advice” for women in business. “Get your f—ing a– up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.” As it turns out, it’s easier to do that when you’re starting out as a member of millionaire family. And one former employee described what working for the Kardashian clan is like, in a harrowing op-ed that she wrote for Vice. (We quote parts of it here, but we encourage you to read the whole thing.)

Jessica DeFino was an assistant editor on Kardashian Jenner Official Apps, and to hear her tell it, she certainly got her “f—ing a– up and worked.” And yet, she was barely able to pay her bills. “I wanted to climb the corporate ladder,” she said. “I wanted to work. I just couldn’t afford to get there.” In her op-ed, she describes her time there, and she also interviewed some other former employees.

Here are six of the awful things about working for the Kardashians:

  • She Couldn't Afford Gas For Her Car or Groceries

    Her salary was $35,000 although she was working for a company that was sure to make millions. She revealed that at one point where there were “19 miles to empty in my gas tank, 15 miles between my apartment and my office, and $5 and change in my bank account. I pulled my 10-year-old Ford Mustang—banged up and bright yellow—into the Arco station at Western and Melrose, popped open the fuel filler, inserted the nozzle, and pumped, the price ticker jumping 20 or 30 cents with each trigger-pull of my finger. I stopped when it hit $4—a little over a gallon at the place and time: Los Angeles, California.” Any of the Kardashians would probably have a hard time relating to her lifestyle: “When the now-defunct apps launched in September 2015, featuring content that was created over the previous five months, the Hollywood Reporter wrote that 600,000 people subscribed to Kylie Jenner’s app alone in the first two days. Insider estimated the apps would generate $32,000,000 from the $3 monthly subscriptions in a single year. I was shopping for groceries at the 99 Cents Only Store.”

  • But They Didn't Want Her To Take Freelance Gigs

    “To make ends meet, I freelanced for the entertainment site Ranker,” she said, “compiling clickbait-y lists like ‘Fun Facts You Didn’t Know About Lady Gaga’ and ‘Which Delayed Albums Were Actually Worth The Wait?’ at $20 to $50 apiece. When Whalerock [the company that ran the apps] caught wind of it, I was called into a manager’s office and reprimanded. Freelancing apparently violated a company rule restricting the outside writing projects employees could pursue.” She noted, “Hustling your way to greater success, it seemed, was for the already rich, not those who worked for them.​​” Ultimately, she was allowed to continue writing lists for Ranker, but future freelance assignments would require approval, they said. DeFino said she stopped pursuing new freelance clients.

  • There Was No Time Off

    When the apps’ anticipated launch date neared, working hours increased. “It was 24/7,” said Jennifer Chan, who joined the Kardashian-Jenner apps as a senior editor in July 2015. “I have many memories of working weekends, giving up holidays and evenings, missing birthday parties. I remember [when] we were still in launch mode, we got the afternoon off on a holiday, and [I was] like, I don’t have any plans because everyone I know assumes I’m unavailable.” She added, “One Christmas, Kanye had just given [Kim] like, a million gifts, and she wanted me to post all the gifts on Christmas Day. I had to get [an internet] hotspot. It was my Christmas also, but I was posting all day to her app.” Answering holiday emails “was an expectation set by Whalerock,” the company that ran the apps. “I don’t know if it was explicitly said, but it was pretty clear we couldn’t keep [the sisters] waiting.”

  • There Was Very Little Access to the Sisters

    Pre-launch, the Kardashian-Jenner family weren’t heavily involved in the editorial aspect of day-to-day operations and she was actually dispatched to a movie premiere to “get original quotes from Kendall and Kylie—for use in their own apps.” To add insult to injury, she had to fight for sound bites with members of the general media. In other words, she was a Kardashian employee who needed Kardashian quotes for her job and had to fight with other members of the press to get them.

  • It Makes It Tough To Have A Relationship

    Lina, another former app editor who asked that her name be changed for fear of retaliation, said that “I would be on a date with my partner and I’d be on my phone, and this was every night. He’d be like, ‘Can you please put your phone down?’ and I’d be like, ‘No, I can’t, this is a Kardashian!’ I wanted to make myself available at crazy hours and on the weekend because of who she was. I literally would be up at 2 a.m. answering her emails.”

  • They Were Promoting A Lie

    “I knew that the apps sold a beauty ideal that was unrealistic and unattainable,” she said. “Even for the Kardashian-Jenners themselves. Kylie’s app often promoted her $29 Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits. (Kylie’s lips are famously the product of injectables.) Khloé’s app shared how to use contouring makeup to “get a nose job every single day.” (Khloé has since admitted to having an actual, surgical nose job.) Kim’s app published articles like “How To Facetune Your Face With Makeup.” (During my time there, Whalerock Industries employed a Photoshop artist to airbrush images for the apps.)”
