Kylie Jenner is under fire on social media after sharing a video of an ambulance at boyfriend Travis Scott‘s two-day Astroworld music festival on Friday night in Houston as a reported eight people were crushed to death and more than 300 were left injured.

While attending the concert with the daughter she shares with the rapper, three-year-old Stormi, the pregnant Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum posted a series of videos on her Instagram Story, and she was quickly slammed for seemingly being insensitive to the devastation happening around her.

“I want to remind you that you can see the ambulance on Kylie Jenners Instagram story from the Travis Scott concert and despite the news has not been taken down,” said someone on Saturday morning.


Another person expressed their disgust with the couple.

“The fact that Travis Scott kept performing and Kylie Jenner was posting the concert to her IG story while his fans were dying and medics were performing CPR in the crowd is one of the most disturbing things I’ve ever seen.”

“Nah Kylie Jenner, you are so wrong… You need to be held accountable,” one more person tweeted.

Following the backlash, Kylie returned to social media, where she shared a statement to her fans and followers, noting that she and Travis were “devastated” for the victims and insisting they had no idea people were dying.

“Travis and I are broken and devastated. My thoughts and prayers are will all who lost their lives, were injured, or affected in [any way] by yesterday’s events,” Kyle wrote on her Instagram Story, via Page Six. “And also for Travis who I know cares deeply for his fans and the Houston community. I want to make it clear we weren’t aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show and in no world would have continued filming or performing.”

“I am sending my deepest condolences to all the families during this difficult time and will be praying for the healing of everyone who has been impacted,” she added.

Kylie Jenner Shares Statement After Astroworld Tragedy

While Kylie attempted to make things right with her online audience, one person pointed out that she had to be aware of the chaos taking place because she shared footage of an ambulance on site.

“Not Kylie Jenner lying saying they didn’t know what was happening when she posted a picture of the crowd and the ambulance was there fetching injured people. And whereas there’s a video of Travis Scott telling his team to do what they came here to do and ignore all else,” that person said.

Keeping Up With the Kardashians came to an end in June after 20 seasons.
