Khloe Kardashian criticized for posting sexy photos amid Astroworld tragedy: ‘Tone deaf’

Khloe Kardashian is facing backlash for posting a series of sultry photos on her social media account amid the Astroworld tragedy, who claimed the lives of eight and injured many more.

Khloe who is the older sister of Travis Scott‘s girlfriend Kylie Jenner posted three photos on Instagram on Monday wearing a form-fitting mesh outfit. Kardashian appears in full glamor for the photos, one of which sees her brush her fingers through her long blonde hair and others show her striking poses in front of a white wall.

The 37-year-old’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” was immediately torn apart by fans who flooded the comment section of her post with criticism.

Several people called the photo “tone deaf” and questioned the reality star’s “timing” as heartbreaking details about Astroworld victims emerge.


“Show deaf. Shame on you [for real]’ one person replied.

Another wrote: “People are watching you guys. I think we can pause this for a week or so after people died at a TS concert [heart emoji] just a thought.”

A third person called Kardashian’s post “irrelevant,” while another responded, “Are you kidding?”

‘Read the room. The first Astroworld victim was buried yesterday,” argued another.

“People have died, but okay, looks like it’s not a problem in the world of Instagram,” one person added.


“People just died while your family watched…maybe taking a week off…” reads another comment.

“I think you’ve been allowed to post after Travis death fest,” another wrote under Khloe’s post.

The Good American founder has not released a statement of his own after the tragedy. However, she reposted her sister Kim Kardashian’s statement on her Instagram story, stating: “Absolutely heartbroken for the lives lost and everyone injured at Astroworld. Like all of you, our family is in shock at the tragedy. We hold all victims, families and loved ones affected in our prayers for healing – as well as Travis who we know cares about his fans so much and is truly heartbroken.”

Scott, whose real name is Jacques Bermon Webster, founded the Astroworld Festival in 2018 performing at the music festival on Friday, when the crowd reportedly rose, resulting in eight deaths and more injuries. He has since been criticized for the decision to let the show go on as first responders did their best to help the injured spectators.

Scott and rapper Drake, who also took the stage on Friday, have been named in lawsuits. Fox News can confirm that Texas attorney Thomas J. Henry filed a lawsuit Sunday against Travis Scott, whose real name is Jacques Bermon Webster, as well as Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Drake Graham. The suit also mentions Live Nation and NRG Stadium.


“Live musical performances are intended to inspire catharsis, not tragedy,” Henry said in a press release. “Many of these concertgoers had been looking forward to this event for months and deserved a safe environment to have fun and enjoy the evening. Instead, their night was one of fear, injury and death.”

A separate lawsuit filed Saturday on behalf of concertgoer Manuel Souza and upheld by Fox News lists Scott as a defendant, accusing the “owners, operators, promoters, public relations representatives and/or organizers of the concert and/or owners, proprietor and operators of the property” of “conscious disregard for the extreme risk of harm to concertgoers that had escalated since hours earlier.”

While the lawsuits clearly want to blame Scott and Drake for continuing the show despite seemingly knowing the public was in danger, Scott’s longtime girlfriend, Kylie Jenner, has released a statement on social media Sunday, in which she noted that he was unaware of how dire the situation was in the crowd. Scott himself went to his Instagram story to note that he usually tries to take care of people in the crowd when he notices someone is in need.

Scott, a 30-year-old Houston resident, has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards. He shares three-year-old daughter Stormi with Jenner, who announced in September that he was pregnant with their second child.

Kylie and Kendall Jenner attended Friday night’s concert. Kendall, a 26-year-old supermodel, also suffered backlash after she was originally uploaded a picture of himself standing behind Scott’s huge stage and sipping a drink with the caption, “Want to be on the mountain?”


Then, after the Friday night tragedy, Jenner updated the caption and simply posted a mountaintop emoji in reference to the rapper’s stage named Utopia Mountain. Users in the comment section were quick to call out the runway star for even keeping the photo on her page in light of the loss of life.

Fox News has reached out to representatives of the Kardashian family for further comment.
