Kourtney Kardashian received a heavy amount of criticism recently. While the latest season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians has concluded, fans have hardly seen everything it has to offer. In the past 48 hours, the family released bonus footage from the season.

The footage featured Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, and their best friend Jonathan Cheban enjoying a meal. While dining, the group viewed pictures and video from the Woolsey Wildfire in California.

The Woolsey Wildfires

For those unfamiliar with the fire, it scorched nearly 100,000 acres. The Woolsey Fire was a devastating and destructive wildfire. Igniting on November 8, 2018, it burned 96,949 acres. The destructive fire burned for nearly two weeks before being extinguished.

The Kardashian trio described the fires as a great bonding experience.

As the group discussed the wildfire, Kim explained they were only able to take what they could put in their vehicle as they evacuated. When Jonathan asked about damage, the group mentioned Kourtney’s backyard was constantly on the news.

Khloé recalled Kourtney shrugging off the incident. After all, her home and everything in it could be replaced. This line of thinking is when fans started to have a problem. Some coined the reaction Kourtney Kardashian had to be a bit insensitive.

At this point in the clip, Kourtney takes the floor. She recalled a conversation with her daughter Penelope. Her daughter asked what would happen if they lost their house. Kourtney admitted to reassuring her daughter. Telling her not to worry.

“We can go anywhere. Let’s go to Italy. We can move to Italy. I was like, we can eat focaccia for the rest of our lives.”

Jonathan added “that is unbelievable,” before the clip came to a close.
