The Kardashians are portrayed by the Kar-Jenner family, and a number of wealthy, influential celebrities with millions of fans and fortunes have spoken out against the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Five pro-life justices just overturned a 1975 decision that had made abortion and bodily autonomy legal. Other well-known people, such as Taylor Swift, Lizzo, and Billie Eilish, have also expressed their disapproval of the choice to their sizable social media audiences.
Some Kar-Jenner family members have become involved in activism and spoken out about issues that are important to them during their time on reality television. However, some of their initiatives are met with greater success than others. When Kim Kardashian said earlier this year that nobody wanted to work, there was a huge outcry. All of the Kardashians utilised their platform to advocate for Black Lives Matter following George Floyd’s death. The Kar-Jenner family’s response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade will now be examined.
The Kardashian sisters quickly shared their opinions on social media, mostly by reposting those of other users. On her Instagram Story, Kourtney posted a picture that made reference to the recent rise in gun violence. “In America, weapons have more rights than women,” it declared. Kendall from The Kardashians reposted a New York Times piece with the remark, “disturbing…disappointing…devastating,” while Khloe shared a Planned Parenthood image. The formal message from former First Lady Michelle Obama was published by Kim and Khloe as well.
Due to her recent backing of the anti-choice Rick Caruso for mayor of Los Angeles, Kim came under fire for being inconsistent with her views. Kendall has been the one who has spoken out about this matter the most. She participated in the #BansOffOurBodies campaign for Planned Parenthood in May alongside other well-known people like Hailey Bieber, Megan Thee Stallion, and Selena Gomez. The list didn’t include any of the additional Jenners or Kardashians. Since her tone-deaf Pepsi commercial days, Kendall has come a long way.
The family matriarch Kris Jenner, the rich Kylie Jenner, and the Kardashian brother Rob Kardashian have all remained silent. Kim and Kris both support Rick Caruso for mayor. There aren’t many celebrities with the same clout as the members of The Kardashians, despite the fact that celebrities hold a lot of power and influence. Fans always hold celebrities accountable for what they say (or don’t say), which is why there have been so many issues involving them. The family may write about the Supreme Court ruling in the future, but there’s also a chance they’ll resume posting about their usual attire and opulent travels.
