Khloe Kardashian faces backlash online after going on a single-use plastics rant… as fans point out her use of opulent balloon displays and an overstocked pantry full of plastic

She’s known for putting in work at the gym before the sun rises.

And Khloe Kardashian clearly had a lot on her mind as she ranted about single-use plastics to her 152million followers on Instagram in the early hours of the morning.

The 36-year-old reality star attempted to educate her fans about pollution, only for users to remind Khloe of her own tendencies to go overboard on disposables, including opulent balloon displays for nearly every event at her house in addition to a pantry stocked to the brim with plastic.

‘So many people tag me in these huge gallon sized jugs of water and I feel awesome because I know people are staying hydrated,’ she began.

‘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 bottle are just going to go into a landfill somewhere and potentially cause you know pollution.

‘We’re trying to limit our single usage of plastics, so I think people should just be aware of that. The point of this is yes to stay hydrated, but also to hopefully reduce you know all the pollution.’

Khloe went on to note that many retailers offer affordable filtration systems that attach to faucets or can be placed in refrigerators.

‘That is a lot smarter than buying cases of waters,’ she said. ‘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. 

‘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.’

Twitter was set alight with commentary as users quickly called out the hypocrisy and found photos of Khloe’s affinity for massive balloon displays. 

‘Khloe is really out here trying to shame her followers for using single use water bottles, when every party they throw looks like this (next tweet). This girl is too much,’ @imheretowatch1 wrote.
