Khloe Kardashian ripped for rant about plastic bottles despite filling her parties with hundreds of plastic balloons

KHLOE Kardashian has been branded a "hypocrite" for ranting about the use of singe-use plastic bottles.

The 36-year-old's critics pointed out that she uses hundreds of plastic balloons for her parties and adds to carbon emissions by travelling by private jet.

Khloe took to her Instagram Stories on Monday to call out people who pour water from their single-use bottles into reusable ones.

"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," she said.

"That defeats the purpose because those water bottle are just going to go into a landfill somewhere and potentially cause you know pollution."

She suggested that fans could buy filtration systems to attach to sinks or to put in their fridge to avoid single-use plastic bottles.



"That is a lot smarter than buying cases of waters. If you're going to be using reusable jugs like I am, and if not every day… I get it. Sometimes we need to grab a water bottle," the KUWTK star said.

"I'm not saying that or judging that, I'm just saying that I don't know why we're pouring water bottles and using… just to throw that plastic away for these jugs.

"So, I'm turning into Kourtney, but let's try to save the environment for the kids."

Khloe's critics flocked to Twitter to point out the times she has filled her home with hundreds of plastic balloons for various events.




"I'm sorry Khloe. What were you saying about single use plastic's irking you????" one wrote, while sharing an example of the star's own waste.

"Khloe is really out here trying to shame her followers for using single use water bottles, when every party they throw looks like this. This girl is too much," another wrote, while sharing photos of Khloe's balloon displays.

"If there was a hypocrite of the CENTURY award Khloe would win by a landslideeeee."

A third wrote, "Just curious, what kind of environmental impact does this have," alongside a compilation of Khloe traveling by private jet.


Private jet passengers account for 10 times as many greenhouse gas emissions as a commercial traveler and 150 times more than people who use rains, a 2019 study revealed.

Back in April, Khloe sparked backlash after sharing photos from True's third birthday party, in which Kylie Jenner's house was decked out with masses and masses of plastic balloons.

The balloons, ranging in size, shape and color, filled the entryway and stairs of Kylie's house, as well as surrounding the tables and the bouncy castle outside.

Her environmentally-conscious critics called her out for creating so much "waste" from one party.

Meanwhile, earlier this week her baby daddy Tristan Thompson was ripped for "bragging" about his lavish life as he posed on a private jet.

The NBA star, 30, showed off his luxury plane and his three oversized luggage bags on on Instagram. 

Last month, model Sydney Chase, 23, claimed Tristan had cheated on Khloe after their reconciliation.

Sydney claimed on a podcast that she had a sexual relationship with Tristan, who had allegedly lied about being single.

The Boston Celtics player reportedly accused Sydney of being a “liar" for alleging a months-long sexual relationship.

Sources claimed Khloe was "upset" by the cheating allegations but has no plans to leave the sports star.
