Kim Kardashian has subtly responded to the backlash she’s received over her private island posts.

Earlier this week, the reality star was branded “tone deaf” for boasting about her 40th birthday trip on social media, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Kim was ridiculed over her posts online, and she even inspired a viral meme on Twitter. 

The mother-of-four has since poked fun at the backlash she’s received by encouraging people to vote in the upcoming US election.

Now that I have your attention…this a reminder to VOTE. 6 days.

Posting more photos from her trip on Instagram, Kim cheekily wrote: “Now that I have your attention… this a reminder to VOTE. 6 days.”

A host of celebrities have encouraged their fans to vote wisely in the upcoming presidential election, which is scheduled for November 3rd.

But fans have questioned who Kim will be voting for, as her husband Kanye West is a nominee.

However, it’s understood Kanye’s name is only listed on ballots in 11 states across America, making it highly unlikely he will earn enough votes to become the next president of the United States.

Last week, Friends star Jennifer Aniston encouraged her fans not to vote for Kanye in the upcoming election.

Sharing her support for Joe Biden on Instagram, the actress wrote: “It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible.”

#IVOTED for @joebiden and @kamalaharris. I dropped my ballot off, and I did it early 👏🏼 I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science… too many people have died. ⠀ I urge you to really consider who is going to be most affected by this election if we stay on the track we’re on right now… your daughters, the LGBTQ+ community, our Black brothers and sisters, the elderly with health conditions, and your future kids and grandkids (who will be tasked with saving a planet that our leadership refuses to believe is hurting). ⠀ ⠀ This whole thing isn’t about one candidate or one single issue, it’s about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency. ⠀ ❤️🗳⠀ ⠀ ⠀ PS – It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible 🙏🏼
