Plenty of Keeping Up With The Kardashians fans are calling Kourtney Kardashian “irresponsible” for sharing a baseless COVID-19 face mask theory.
Many fans are slamming Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kourtney Kardashian for spreading a “ridiculous” COVID-19 face mask theory, which isn’t backed up by any scientific proof. The Kardashian-Jenner family has already been criticized for hosting large social gatherings during the pandemic.
Kendall Jenner from Keeping Up With The Kardashians recently faced a lot of backlash for hosting a grand Halloween/birthday party on October 31, in the midst of a global pandemic. It has been reported that around 100 guests attended the bash at Harriet’s Rooftop in West Hollywood’s 1 Hotel. Reportedly, the hotel’s staff members were uncomfortable because most of the guests at the wild birthday bash weren’t wearing face masks. Plus, a video of Kendall Jenner blowing out candles went viral. She was very very close to a waiter’s face as she blew out candles on the birthday cake he held. Fans blasted the supermodel and her family on Twitter for their irresponsible acts. The famous momager Kris Jenner came to Kendall’s defense and is now claiming that everyone who attended the party had to get tested for COVID-19. She also claimed that there were only 20 to 25 guests at the party and that they did follow the rules. Now, reality star Kourtney Kardashian, who’s always been into alternative health, is in the hot seat for sharing the sketchy face mask theory.

The famous family is in trouble because of Kourtney’s controversial remarks on COVID-19 face masks. She recently took to her Kourtney Kardashian Instagram, which has 102 million followers, and shared a graphic of a surgical mask along, along with a note that the mask can cause life-threatening health risks. The Poosh founder said that the “blue masks” are made of: “PTFE, a carcinogen made of synthetic fluoride.” She continued, “According to Cancer.Org it increases the risk of liver, testicle, pancreas, kidney & breast tumors + ulcerative colitis, thyroid disease, preeclampsia and high cholesterol.” She further stated that these masks could ultimately lead to “suffocation.” Check out the screenshot of her IG story below:
According to NY Post, the American Cancer Society has denounced her claims by stating, “There is no evidence to support the claim that the presence of PTFE in a mask causes cancer.” Many Keeping Up With The Kardashians viewers are now slamming the 41-year-old reality TV star for sharing such an alarming message on a public platform, without credible medical proof. A fan referred to this “utterly ridiculous” conspiracy theory as the “scariest thing to happen on Halloween.” Another critic, Dr. Joshua Wolrich, posted the following tweet:
It’s one thing for a random people on social media to claim that masks cause cancer… it’s another for @kourtneykardash to be doing so on her Instagram stories to >100 million followers. UTTERLY FUCKING UNACCEPTABLE.
