In a surprising twist of events...it appears Kourtney Kardashian woke up and chose irony. Kourt has been named Boohoo's new Sustainability Ambassador....where do I begin?
Can we start with the fact that Boohoo, a fast fashion brand, is claiming they are at all sustainable? And to top it all off...their face of "sustainability" is Kourtney Kardashian, whose water intake literally had to be flagged by the city of Los Angeles? This has to be some episode of What Would You Do?
I bet Kourtney did this on Kris Jenner's day off, because there is no way my PR Queen would let this happen...I need a drink.
The summer’s hottest gossip is in and it’s scathing: celebrities don’t give a damn about the global climate crisis and it shows. I can just hear the gasps now as the room falls silent.
Let’s start with Elon Musk’s nine-minute flight that’s only five stops on the train. So much for Tesla being the pioneer of environmentalism, or whatever it was they claimed when they started. When it comes to celebs taking frivolous flights that pour CO2 into our atmosphere, Musk’s private jet flight is only the tip of the iceberg.
Taylor Swift tops charts in more ways than one…leading with the most private jet flights taken. The most CO2 emitted. Even if she claims people borrow her private jet, why?
While California faces a drought worse than any since the 1800s…I wonder if anyone’s listening. I wonder if we truly care that our environment is imploding. Is it worth defending celebrities if they refuse to acknowledge they’re part of the problem? And why aren’t they interested in being part of the solution?
Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Sylvester Stallone, Kevin Hart, and Dwayne Wade all received notices to cut back their water usage. They surpassed consumption by 150% since last year.
Before you start telling me about DWade’s stats or how Kevin Hart cracks you up…I know. I love these selfish celebs who blatantly ignore the fact that people are dying so they can live a life of luxury.
No seriously. I get they have so much money they don’t know what to do with it. But here’s an idea, instead of all the wasteful jets and water use, donate to environmental charities!
We all make sacrifices to keep our planet going, so I’m sure Kim K can go without the fountain running for weeks on end. And, much to Elon’s horror, public transportation won’t kill you. Do better.
It’s just over a week since rapper PnB Rock appeared on DJ Akademics’ Off The Record podcast discussing the increase in brazen LA robberies. And in a strange, horrifying twist of events, it’s now been confirmed that PnB Rock was shot inside a South Los Angelos Waffle House. He was hit with multiple gunshot wounds and pronounced dead at the hospital 45 minutes later.
\u201cWow.. this PNB Rock situation crazy.. i just did a interview with him a week ago where he detailed how someone tried to rob him in LA recently while he was out with his girlfriend and daughter. Now.. this.. smh. Pray for PNB Rock.\u201d— DJ Akademiks (@DJ Akademiks) 1663020806
LAPD Capt Kelly Muniz said a suspect approached a couple inside Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles and demanded they hand over personal items before fleeing in a getaway car.
“I never got robbed. Never in my life. I ain’t gon’ say never because I don’t like saying never… I’m not superstitious or nothing like that… but I haven’t been robbed.” - PnB Rock revealed on the Podcast.
Born Rakim Hasheem Allen, he was integral to a wave of innovative rappers who seamlessly blended singing and rapping. Inspired by Drake’s singing while incarcerated, before PnB knew it, he was released, and then his own career took off in 2015 with his song Fleek.
“PnB Rock was more than an artist. To many, Rakim Allen was a great friend. He was also a wonderful father to two beautiful little girls.” - PnB Rock’s record label took to Instagram.
I wish it didn’t, but this feels like a dreadful trend. In fact, a number of burglaries and robberies targeting actors, musicians, and athletes have occurred in recent years. Bashar Jackson, AKA Pop Smoke, was killed in a home invasion in early 2020.
PnB Rock released his latest song, “Luv Me Again” on Sept. 2nd.

Sadly, there are no suspects, and zero arrests have been made in regard to Monday's shooting.
Her Boohoo Sustainability Campaign Falls Short Of Helping Anyone
But no. Instead, Kourtney Kardashian-Barker - who just received notices to cut back on her water usage from the city of Los Angeles - is now Boohoo’s self-proclaimed “Sustainability Ambassador.” And it just goes downhill from there.
What Doesn’t Work?
Kris Jenner, I’m wondering if you have simply given up on Kourt’s PR disaster here. Or does Kim have something up her sleeve that will distract us all? Who approved this? I find it hard to believe private-jet-taking, water-wasting, energy-consuming Kourtney Kardashian is one inch a “Sustainability Ambassador…”
And pairing that with a fast fashion brand! Fast fashion is one of the biggest contributors to the global landfill, creating 92 million tons of textile waste annually.
It’s not just that Kourt’s wasteful and careless in many ways, but the irony lies in the control with which she restricts her children’s diet…Cutting out dairy, gluten, and sugar but then leading a life that contributes to the climate crisis.
What Actually Works?
Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard announced the family is giving away their company shares to a nonprofit organization in order to fight climate change. Patagonia is valued at around $3 billion.
THIS is what commitment to fighting the climate crisis looks like. Not empty promises, a gluttonous lifestyle, or campaigns with fast fashion brands.
