I feel as if it's usually very young people who are following up with the Kardashians, so why are they relevant on a platform that not many young people watch? The many millions of followers usually seem to come from relevant peers (like other celebrities, people from their communities, also very young people, usually teenagers to early 20s). This make sense to see why they're so popular on social media but it seems strange to me that the news is portraying things that don't really get the views they ever hope for. That is also my theory why the reality star's relevancy has gone down.
The directors behind news stories do it for views obviously but at the same time no one who is an adult really cares about what these girls are doing. That has been more true than ever as magazine subscriptions and anyone who doesn't live amongst the stars already are too overwhelmed with outside factors to really keep up with anybody but themselves.
When the news came out of Kylie Jenner having her baby girl, Stormi it being apparent she was going to be more open in a post than she had been her entire pregnancy. "I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. She continues to say "I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness." Expecting a variety of reactions it seems like there was an overwhelming amount of online support for the new mom. Especially from the fact that a few post later her offical Stormi baby reveal had become the most well liked photo on Instagram. This shows that even if a person is mostly followed and even scrutinized that when it comes down to the important stuff the humanity comes out of even the most envious.
