A viral TikTok video showing the Kardashians riding the Mad Tea Party surrounded by 15 empty teacups sparks social media outrage.
The Kardashians made headlines during a recent trip to Disneyland when they cut in line and jumped on rides all by themselves while crowds were forced to wait as the reality TV stars enjoyed the Mad Tea Party and Dumbo the Flying Elephant.
Kim Kardashian, sister Khloe and their children “sparked outrage” after a viral TikTok video showed them riding the Mad Tea Party surrounded by 15 empty teacups as “disgruntled” and “furious” visitors waited in a “massive” line for the Fantasyland attraction, according to the Daily Mail.
“You can’t sit with us!” screamed the Daily Mail headline. “Massive crowd forced to wait as Kardashian family enjoy teacups and Dumbo ride with EMPTY seats at Disneyland while on $3K VIP tour.”
Photos posted to Kim Kardashian’s Instagram account show the family also riding on the otherwise empty Dumbo the Flying Elephant attraction during their day at the Anaheim theme park, according to the United Kingdom’s Daily Mail.
The social media photos show the Kardashians escorted throughout the park by a Disneyland guest relations cast member in a familiar red-and-green plaid vest. The reality TV stars paid $2,975 for a VIP tour of Disneyland that included priority access to rides, according to the Daily Mail.
The Kardashian’s Disneyland trip complete with VIP treatment “highlighted the difficulty of being one of the most famous families on earth,” according to TMZ.
“For them, it’s kinda a necessity, since they would be overwhelmed by fans if they stood in line and the trip would be a disaster for the kids,” according to TMZ.
The tabloid darlings visited Disneyland to celebrate the fourth birthday of Khloe Kardashian’s daughter True, according to the Daily Mail.
The decision to shut down the teacup ride to everyone but the Kardashians was made by Disneyland, according to TMZ.
“We’re told the Kardashians didn’t request that the ride be shut down to other guests,” according to TMZ. “Disneyland staff just did it. They did not shut down other rides for the fam.”

All four teenagers inside the van that ran over the beloved Polk City librarian in November will be charged as adults in her death, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said Tuesday.
The driver of the van, 18-year-old Elijah Stansell, had his charge upgraded from attempted murder to murder after Suzette Penton succumbed to her injuries last week.
Stansell is the only teen charged with murder. The others — 16-year-old Kimberly Stone, 14-year-old Hannah Eubank, and 16-year-old Raven Sutton — are facing adult charges of attempted felony murder and burglary with assault.
At a press conference Tuesday, Grady Judd outlined the relationship between the teenagers involved in the tragic incident on Nov. 9.
According to Judd, Suzette’s son, Hunter, had been in an ongoing dispute with former girlfriend Kimberly Stone following their breakup six months ago. The dispute got so bad, Judd said, that Stone was suspended from their high school.
On the day Stone was suspended, Judd said she gathered two friends, Eubank and Sutton, and her new boyfriend, Stansell, to go confront and beat up Hunter at his home.
Judd said that’s when Suzette confronted the teens, tried to take pictures of their getaway van, and was ran over by Stansell.
“Runs completely over her,” Judd said. “She has tire tracks on her body where he runs totally over her.”
The getaway van that Judd said Elijah used belongs to the Westwood Missionary Baptist Church, where Stansell’s father is a pastor.

Starting September 8, McDonald’s is adding Scott’s favorite meal from the fast-food chain — a Quarter Pounder with cheese, bacon, and lettuce, medium fries with BBQ Sauce, and a Sprite — to the menu for $6. It will be available through October 4.
McDonald’s Chief Marketing Officer Morgan Flatley told Business Insider the fast-food chain started thinking about teaming up with Scott more than a year ago, in part because the company knew the rapper was a fan of the chain. The Scott partnership marks the first time McDonald’s has put a celebrity’s name on its menu since Michael Jordan in 1992.
“His ability to kind of see where culture is going and have a hand in where culture is going is really unique,” Flatley said in an interview on Friday. “Then you couple that with his huge followership and his fans, social-media footprint, and … 3 billion streams. He just has an incredible audience.”
The partnership has caused some controversy within McDonald’s, with some franchisees pushing back against a deal with the rapper. These franchisees felt that a deal with a rapper known partly for explicit lyrics was a departure from the chain’s more family-friendly voice.
Flatley told Business Insider many other franchisees and employees were excited about the deal and that at a chain as big as McDonald’s, differing opinions are the norm. The Scott partnership is key to remaining relevant and winning over younger customers, she said.
According to Flatley, people under the age of 34 are “becoming more and more challenging for brands to reach.”

In this clip, Godfrey reacted to Vlad admitting he was wrong about cash reparations for African Americans and talked about the importance of growth. Later, Godfrey and Vlad try their best to make sense of Tory Lanez allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot following a house party in Hollywood.
In this clip, Godfrey starts out by reacting to correctly predicting that Tekashi would rap about snitching in a previous VladTV interview. He went on to state that he doesn’t believe that Tekashi’s reverse psychology plan will work, because history and movies have shown that people don’t respect snitches. Godfrey also joked about a 12-year-old girl revealing Tekashi’s address online, and he went on to impersonate Tekashi rapping about snitching, which you can view above.
In this clip, Godfrey gave his take on the discrimination Africans are experiencing in China and how it illustrates classic racism. Godfrey discussed the legacy of Africa being colonized and how powerful countries today are looking to recolonize the continent. However, Godfrey said Nigeria is showing signs of bucking the trend of African capitulation by dishing out similar treatment to Chinese in their country as they are treated in China.
