- Kourtney Kardashian is shutting down trolls who are criticizing her friendship with TikTok star Addison Rae.
- Kourtney and Addison have recently become friends and frequently post pics to Instagram hanging out together.
So, I guess we're at that point in quarantine where people are stirring up dumb "controversy" out of boredom, perhaps? Maybe, jealousy? Or maybe just downright meanness. Well, Kourtney Kardashian isn't having it. After posting bikini pics lounging in the pool with TikTok star Addison Rae, some of her followers started criticizing the pic because of (wait for it!) their... age difference.
Sorry, just had to roll my eyes for a hot sec. I must've missed the memo where you have to be the same age as your friends (???). Kourt captioned the pic, "Two more days of summer." There are a lot of acceptable things to comment on this pic: The epic pool, their epic bods, the epic sunset, etc. etc. You know what's not cool? Hating on the fact that Addison is 19 and Kourtney is 41.
"Why u guys hanging," one follower asked. Another wrote, "What’s my girl doing with someone half her age tho." But, two comments in particular stuck out to Kourtney because she responded to the person who wrote, "this friendship still weirds me tf out," and the replier who wrote, "shes 41 and she's hanging around with 19 year olds in swimming pools."
Kourtney responded, "Do you suggest a better place," adding, "I'm looking for ideas..." LOL. There's no better way to shut down haters than with some good ole sass—works every time. Thankfully, some *real* fans came to Kourtney's defense, writing, "Why do so many people say this friendship is confusing? They are both famous influencers in very similar careers and have similar lifestyles. Who cares if there is an age gap??" Another added, "Hot girl summer."
Yes, hot girl summer, indeed.
