Earth Day, which was on Wednesday, is celebrated every year in order to provoke conversation and action around environmental protection. But yesterday, when I was scrolling through my feed, I saw less about Mother Earth than I did about other people.
Somehow, people made Earth Day about themselves -- there were Instagrams of people swimming with dolphins (congrats, you paid $300 for a trainer to take you out) and people hugging trees (what, you want environmental change and not a picture of me in nature?). It wasn't really surprising when I saw Kim Kardashian's photo to commemorate the annual holiday.
"In honor of Earth Day here's my best plant selfie from my book #Selfish out May 5th! #ivegotaselfieforeveryoccasion," she wrote on Twitter, attaching a photo of her in a bikini in front of a wall of succulents.
Because why not use a day that's dedicated to preserving our planet to promote your book, "Selfish," out May 5? Seems a little selfish to me.
She looks good though.
