Uh oh: Over the weekend, Kendall threw a wild birthday bash at Harriet’s Rooftop in West Hollywood’s 1 Hotel as it has been claimed by The Sun that workers felt ‘uncomfortable’ as 100 guests reportedly refused to wear face masks
‘But there was no social distancing, no masks besides the staff and over 100 people. The staff were under the impression it would be handled safely, no one felt comfortable.
‘They knew this party was going to be a bad look and they did not care. The family was openly talking about it before the party and debating how to best handle it. They decided to just go through with it and have a good time.’
The soirée – which saw the likes of The Weeknd, Justin Bieber, Jaden Smith and Winnie Harlow in attendance – came just weeks after Kim Kardashian was met with criticism for flying her family and friends to a private island to celebrate her 40th birthday.
DailyMail.com has contacted representatives for Kendall and 1 Hotel for further comment.

The reality star told Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show about the expansive testing precautions in place for a packed guest list.
‘We are very lucky to work in an industry where we get tested once or twice a week,’ the matriarch said. ‘I just got tested again. I was tested on Friday, because of the network rules while we are filming as you know, so that’s very strict.’
‘Whenever we have a gathering – no matter how big or small – no matter, you know, whether it’s five people or 25 people, you know, or 20 people, we have, like at Kendall’s, everyone got tested before they walked in the door and they had to wait, you know, a half an hour until the testing was, the results were in.’
The businesswoman insisted she ‘can’t control’ the online pushback, as many social media users said the famous family were flouting coronavirus rules.

Host Andy – who tested positive for the virus earlier this year – said he underwent a multi-step, coronavirus-friendly process on a recent visit to their home.
The presenter, 52, explained: ‘I will say we, we did something together a month or two ago, and the protocols to getting, it was at one of the girl’s houses, I was sent to a location on the way to the house I was tested.
‘And they said, if you get to the house and the gate opens, that means you tested negative. ‘A half hour later, and that gate went open. I was like, all right, it’s all good. But yeah, you guys are, you guys are quite, you guys are quite careful.’
