It's safe to say that the Kardashian-Jenners have stirred up their fair share of controversy over the years. Whether it's accusations of blackface or mom-shaming, the siblings never fail to find themselves at the center of backlash.

The Kardashians are a media force.

They've all starred in one of the most successful realities shows of all time and each of the sisters has a massive influence on social media.

The Kardashian-Jenners are more than just influencers, though.

They're truly impressive entrepreneurs and businesswomen. Whatever you think about them, you can't deny that they've done well for themselves.

Especially coming from pretty humble beginnings.

Sure, they've always had an element of wealth and fame - but back when Keeping Up With The Kardashians started, the sisters certainly weren't the biggest Hollywood success story.

They've come a long way.

And more and more, the family are being respected as major players, particularly in the realms of fashion and beauty.

Although it's certainly no secret that the siblings have stirred up their fair share of controversy over the years.

From cultural appropriation to mom-shaming, the Kardashian-Jenners are never far from the headlines.

But there's one sister who seems to land themselves in hot water more than the others...

The second eldest of the clan, Kim Kardashian.

Kim frequently seems to get on the wrong side of fans.

For instance, the star was accused of blackface earlier last year by disgruntled fans.

The accusations came after this magazine cover was released:

The photoshoot was for 7Hollywood, an “L.A.-based biannual fashion, celebrity, and art magazine distributed worldwide." The shoot was supposedly inspired by Elizabeth Taylor, however, many saw these shots and immediately got the impression that Kim was channeling (or appropriating) black culture instead.

Her skin had been noticeably darkened.

Whether it was spray tan, strange lighting, or overuse of photoshop, it’s not a stretch to say that Kim is unrecognizable.

Kim has also been frequently mom-shamed.

Whether it's letting her daughter, North, wear makeup or allowing her to wear hooped earrings - the parent-shamers are never far away.

This picture of her 6-year-old daughter most certainly caused a stir...

North was seen sporting a faux nose ring. The questionable jewelry choice came just weeks after her newly religious dad, Kanye, put a strict ban on her wearing makeup.

It seems that Kim can't catch a break...

And her most recent move has caused unimaginable outrage.

Of course, we are currently living through the COVID-19 pandemic.

The coronavirus has completely taken over the world and things have been getting deadly serious.

A lot of people have now died from the virus.

17,148 people, to be precise. A further 392,427 people globally are currently infected with the virus, meaning the majority of major countries are now issuing lockdowns and self-isolations.

Millions of people around the world are now self-isolating in a desperate bid to prevent the spread of the virus...

And this includes the Kardashian family.

Yesterday, Kim took to her Instagram story to share her current situation.

She filmed herself sitting at her kitchen table with mom, Kris, sat at the other end.

Kim went on to explain what she and her famous mom had been up to.

"So today is the first day that I'm having someone from the outside come into my home... it's my mom! Social distancing... and we are sitting 6 feet apart having lunch together," she started off by saying.

Kim touched on the fact that exercising is massively important.

"We went on a walk six feet apart, and it really did make a difference to get out, we just went in my backyard and now that it's not raining," she explained, "but I just want you guys to still be encouraged that social distancing is definitely the way to go!"

Kris then piped in her opinion...

"I think it really made me feel better to get outside a little bit today. It made such a difference in my attitude, my energy, my mood, and it made me feel cheerful to see Kim and I think if you can guys, just try and get outside for a few minutes," the Momager said.

"But still stay inside," Kim then suddenly reminded her fans.

"We've been taking it extremely seriously and I just think everyone really needs to understand that this is temporary - it's not gonna last forever," Kim went on to say. "But take advantage of the time, you know, I've been doing everything from organizing pictures to making my kids baby books... every year I write each one of my kids' letters and I've been able to catch up on those."

Seems fair enough, right?

Wrong! It turns out that fans aren't best pleased with this response to self-isolation.

Firstly, fans began to point out the obvious thing...

And that is the Kardashian family's privilege.

Many felt this was a patronizing thing of Kim to do...

And that she was speaking down to the "little people."

And of course...

The majority of fans are still furious with Kim over the whole Taylor Swift controversy.
