For the common non-billionaire — lacking in Gap collaborations, shapewear empires, and private jets to whisk them away from it all — the past several months have been trying, to say the very least.
But for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, this is a time to reflect on their personal wealth. West has a reported net worth of $1.3 billion, while Kardashian is a newly-minted $900 millionaire (though West would beg to differ).
On Monday, both parties decided to take their financial privilege to the timeline. Kardashian began, posting two photos of her 7-year-old daughter North West’s “Freesian horse” (Horse twitter quickly corrected her spelling — it’s Friesian), noting that they have 14 of the breed at their Wyoming ranch. Pricing differs depending on an array of factors, but a single Friesian horse can cost more than $50,000.

Twitter users quickly called Kardashian out for the insensitive timing of her post.

Less than an hour later, West piled on the chaos, tweeting a, uh, “still life,” for Kardashian, in celebration of her “officially becoming a billionaire.”
I am so proud of my beautiful wife Kim Kardashian West for officially becoming a billionaire
You’ve weathered the craziest storms and now God is shining on you and our family
So blessed this is still life
So I made you this still life
We love you so much pic.twitter.com/Vvtgzodnah

It’s unclear where West came up with this figure, since Forbes reported just yesterday that Kardashian was worth $900 million. But, regardless, the post netted a reaction similar to that of Kardashian’s.
so nice of kanye to provide us with sides for when we eat the rich https://t.co/kF5NNTCccL

It’s OK to *quietly* revel in your fortune, guys. Perhaps send a group text next time.
