KIM Kardashian has been slammed for throwing a "wasteful" Minions party for her four kids at her $60million LA mansion.

The reality star, 41, put on a bash featuring hundreds of balloons, a pinata, a foosball table and dancing rollerbladers to celebrate the release of Minions: The Rise of Gru.

Kim and her sister Khloe shared endless videos and photos of the colorful party on their Instagram Stories on Sunday.

The SKIMS founder decorated her lounge with a huge arch made up of yellow, pink, red and blue balloons with rainbow-style tassels hanging down.

There was a multi-tiered Minion-themed cake and treats, as well as Minion-themed slime stations and painting stations for the kids outside.

The guests could hang out at the huge stage erected outside under glittering disco lights, where dancers in 70s costumes rollerbladed to disco music.

Kim also showed off a huge pinata hanging up outside and dancing Minions characters mingling with the guests.

Khloe attended with her daughter True, four, and Kim's sisters Kourtney and Kendall also made an appearance.

Critics flooded Reddit with their outrage at the amount of waste created by the party.

One wrote: "This is beyond over the top. The amount of balloons this family go through for a few photos makes my head spin."

Another added: "The amount of waste they produce is insane, hundreds s of gallons for just one event."

A third agreed, posting: "I would give my left leg to know [Kim's] carbon footprint."


This isn't the first time the Kardashian-Jenner clan have been called out for their "wasteful" celebrations.

Back in April, family matriarch Kris Jenner faced backlash for putting on an "excessive" Easter display full of candies.

The Kardashians celebrated Easter at Kris' $12million Palm Springs home and fans couldn't believe how many desserts were on the table.

Kris showed off individual gumball machines for each of her grandchildren and dozens of cupcakes, cookies and cakes.

Critics complained that many of the sweets would be thrown away and asked how the family would deal with the leftovers.


Last year, Khloe came under fire for using hundreds of plastic balloons for her parties and adding to carbon emissions by traveling by private jet.

Private jet passengers account for 10 times as many greenhouse gas emissions as a commercial traveler and 150 times more than people who use trains, a 2019 study revealed.

In April 2021, Khloe shared photos from True's third birthday party, in which Kylie Jenner's house was decked out with masses and masses of plastic balloons.

The balloons, ranging in size, shape and color, filled the entryway and stairs of Kylie's house, as well as surrounding the tables and the bouncy castle outside.

Her environmentally-conscious critics called her out for creating so much "waste" from one party.
