Following Travis Scott’s disastrous Astroworld festival, which killed at least eight people, Khloé Kardashian has been dubbed “tone-deaf” for posting thirst traps to Instagram.
On Monday, the 37-year-old co-founder of Good American shared three photos of herself wearing a sheer bodycon dress that accentuated her curvy figure.
Khloé Kardashian captioned the photo with emojis of a panda, a zebra, and paw prints about her outfit’s animal print design.
Given Kardashian’s close relationship with Scott, critics were quick to chastise her for posting the steamy photos less than three days after the tragedy.
One person commented on the photos, “Read the room. The first Astroworld victim was buried yesterday,”
A second Instagram user agreed, saying, “Completely tone deaf.”
“People are watching you guys. I think we can pause this for a week or so after people died at TS [Travis Scott] concert❤ just a thought,” a third wrote.
Another netizen commented, “Oh you can’t be serious🤬,”
“people died but okay, seems it’s no problem in the world of Instagram😇 ,” a fifth added sarcastically.
“How can you even post after the AstroWorld, so UNCARING,” another inquired.
On Friday, eight people were killed, and more than 300 were injured in a “mass casualty event” at Scott’s Astroworld Festival in Houston.
The 30-year-old “Sickomode” rapper has been chastised on social media for continuing to perform despite many people screaming for help and being surrounded by paramedics and ambulances.
“What happened last night absolutely devastated me,” Scott said in a statement following the show. “My heartfelt condolences to the families of those killed or injured at the Astroworld Festival.”
“I want to make it clear that we weren’t aware of the fatalities until the news came out after the show and in no world would have continued filming or performing,” Kardashian’s sister Kylie Jenner, who shares 3-year-old daughter Stormi with Scott and is pregnant with their second child, said about the fatal concert on Sunday.
Scott has since announced that he will cover the costs of those who died’s funerals and provide free mental health care and other assistance to those affected.
Nearly two dozen lawsuits have already been filed against him and his concert promoter, Live Nation.
