As authorities plead with tourists to leave the island of Maui due to devastating wildfires, Paris Hilton has made her way to Hawaii to enjoy the sun (and provide her assistance) just a few kilometers away from the flames.
The 42-year-old socialite was spotted over the weekend frolicking on a beach in Maui with her husband, Carter Reum, and their son, despite evacuation directives. She reportedly stayed at a resort in Wailea, which is nearly 50 kilometers away from the active fire in Lahaina.
However, a source close to the family stated that Paris was also there to help residents cope with the situation. “She has gathered supplies and taken them to shelters and those in need. She has done it before and continues to do so.”
Meanwhile, Hawaiian actor Jason Momoa is begging tourists to cancel their vacations in his home state. “Maui is not the place to spend your holidays right now,” he said. “Don’t convince yourself that your presence is necessary on an island that is suffering so deeply.”
Paris Hilton is not the only celebrity who has traveled to Hawaii despite recommendations. Oprah Winfrey was seen assisting locals at the War Memorial Stadium in Wailuku, which has been transformed into a shelter for the displaced.
Amidst the ongoing wildfires, it is important for everyone, including celebrities, to prioritize their safety and follow evacuation orders. The efforts made by Hilton and other celebrities to provide assistance are commendable, but it is crucial to remember that the safety and well-being of individuals should always come first.
As the situation in Maui continues to unfold, it is hoped that the wildfires can be contained and that residents and tourists alike will remain safe.
