Like many others right now, Kourtney Kardashian and her kids are finding ways to keep busy indoors as they practice social distancing amid the coronavirus outbreak.
However, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star also made a social media post suggesting she believes the global pandemic is a punishment from God for all of the evil in the world.
Kourtney took to her Instagram story to share a Bible passage from the Old Testament. The image showed the words, “pay attention children” handwritten on top of the passage in red. The image was originally shared by rapper Young Thug.
“Whenever I hold back the rain or send locusts to eat up the crops or send an epidemic on my people, if they pray to me and repent and turn away from the evil they have been doing, then I will hear them in heaven, forgive their sins, and make their land prosperous again,” the passage reads.
Many fans think it’s pretty clear that the 40-year-old reality star believes that the world has been so unrighteous, that God is punishing us with the coronavirus pandemic.
She also believes that a psychic, Sylvia Browne, predicted the disease in 2008. The disease has already claimed thousands of lives globally.
Kourtney had sent a passage from Browne’s book, End of Days, to her family in a group chat. Her sister Kim Kardashian then shared the snap on her Twitter.
“In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting known treatments,” the excerpt eerily reads.
However, while other stars are looking for the top charity to donate to in the wake of coronavirus, Kourtney has recently been accused of cashing in on the current pandemic. Her “lifestyle” website, Poosh, is using coronavirus panic to sell luxury emergency kits.
As chaos ensues around the world, Kourtney’s website published an article titled “HOW TO PREPARE for Coronavirus.”
In it, the article walks fans through some basic tips. They include proper hand hygiene, coughing and sneezing etiquette, how to stop touching your face, how to use gloves and masks, and listening to authorities.
That may seem innocent enough. But the article links to her friend Simon Huck’s luxury emergency kit brand three times. The article was not labeled as sponsored content.
In case you were wondering, the emergency kits range in cost from $60 to $250. They have received less than favorable reviews.
