Khloé Kardashian Faces Backlash Over Her “Hypocritical” Plastic Water Bottle ‘Rant’
Recently, Khloé Kardashian shared a video in her Instagram stories that many people find hypocritical. When she filmed the video it was only 5:30am, and she was at the gym ready to workout. She even told viewers it was a “tired rant.” Maybe that explains why she didn’t think through how people would take what she wanted to complain about – single use plastic.
Kardashian started her rant by saying, “So many people tag me in these huge gallon-sized jugs of water, and I feel awesome ’cause I know people are staying hydrated.” She took the opportunity to show off her own huge reusable jug of water.
Then she continued to explain what’s been bothering her. She said, “There’s something that irks me is that I see people taking water bottles and they’re just pouring it into the gallon size reusable plastic bottle so they can consume their water for the day. That defeats the purpose because those water bottles are just going to go into a landfill somewhere and potentially cause, you know, pollution.”
We agree. Buying small plastic water bottles and pouring them into a huge reusable water bottle doesn’t seem like the most environmentally conscious solution when there are other ways to get clean, filtered water to drink. As Kardashian points out, Amazon and Bed, Bath & Beyond sell water filters you can attach to your faucet as well as water filtration pitchers.

The reason people are upset with Kardashian’s rant is that it seems very hypocritical. She’s talking about how we need to cut down on using single use plastic products, yet, she has shared numerous pictures where she is using single use plastics. Maybe they’re not disposable water bottles, but balloons and food packaging is just getting thrown away and could “cause, you know, pollution.”
