She clearly didn’t think this one through!
Kim Kardashian took to social media to express her condolences over the Manchester terror attack today, but she chose to post a throwback of herself partying with Ariana Grande as the image, and now she’s getting some major backlash. Fans were quick to point out how insensitive and tone deaf it seemed, and we’d have to agree.
“I’m praying for everyone in Manchester. This is truly so senseless & heart breaking. I can’t imagine the fear and agony these parents must be going through searching for their kids 💔 Concerts are supposed to be a place where u can let loose and have fun. It’s so scary to not feel safe in this world. My heart goes out to @arianagrande I love you 💕,” she captioned the snapshot of herself and the singer in better times.
Among the criticisms circulating on the Internet?
“Kim sometimes you can be so vain why post a picture with you in it?? Just say your condolences, the world is not about you,” one user wrote. “Instead of posting a picture of yourself maybe show some compassion and sincerity for all those poor people who have lost their kids?? So selfish such a terrible post and picture!!” another echoed.
We get where Kimmy K was trying to go with this, but she had to have known that inserting herself into the tragedy wasn’t the best move. She knows now, though, as she just deleted the post!
