Fans have expressed their upset with Khloe Kardashian for her continued silence on the Astroworld tragedy, in which 10 people lost their lives at a Travis Scott concert attended by sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner, but choosing to join celebs weighing in on the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse
Khloe Kardashian has come under fire from fans for her comments on the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.
The Keeping up with the Kardashians star, 37, tweeted that she was ‘speechless and disgusted’ after 17-year-old Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all counts by a jury on Friday.
Twitter users immediately jumped on Khloe’s post and expressed their disappointment that she spoke out on the ruling but is still yet to comment on the Astroworld tragedy that occurred this month
Following a two-week trial, Kyle Rittenhouse walked free from court this week after shooting three people at a Black Lives Matter protest in 2020.
Joining a number of celebs weighing in on the case, Khloe tweeted: “Speechless and disgusted!!” after the verdict.
The replies from her followers came thick and fast with many asking the Good American mogul when she would be speaking out on the tragic events at Travis Scott’s concert on November 5.
“You’ll comment on this but not the Travis Scott concert? Mmmmmmk. Stay in your lane lady,” one told her.
“I’m pretty sure you’re talking about Rittenhouse however a lot of people are about to turn those three words against you considering you didn’t say much about AstroWorld,” said another.
“Did you just find out what happened at Astroworld ???” scathed another.
However, others stood up for the star pointing out she had ‘nothing to do’ with what happened at Scott’s festival.
One fan posted: “Some people are ridiculous and so mean!!! Why will people just continue to come for Khloe?? Geeeezzzz just cause she makes a comment…..Like really,??” they asked, adding “If you don’t have anything nice to say keep all your negative words.”
“Omg mean People! She had nothing to do with the concert! She doesn’t need to speak on Twitter about it,” chimed in another.
Two high school students and a 9-year-old boy are among the 10 people who lost their lives after a crowd surge at the Astroworld Festival in Houston at the start of the month.
Rapper Travis Scott has said he will pay for the funeral costs of those who lost their lives.
The singer said in a statement at the time: “I’m absolutely devastated by what took place last night. My prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival.”
Since the incident, the Kardashian Jenner family have come under fire for their social media presence.
Fans voiced their anger this week as Kylie and Kendall promoted their fashion brand on Instagram just weeks after 10 people lost their lives.
“We are so excited to announce that you can now shop #kendallandkylie styles in the UAE,” a post on their joint page read.
One fan told the sisters: “Show some f**king respect for those that died and stop flogging your s**t on IG when the bodies aren’t even cold.”
While another raged: “#cancel kylie #canceltravisscott #cancelkardashions unfollow this brand they are posting again but can’t acknowledge or say the names of the 10 people who have died at an event they were at. Unfollow them they are not nice people and they don’t deserve to be famous.”
Kylie, who was at the concert, did post a statement on Instagram the day after the tragedy.
She wrote: “Travis and I are broken and devastated. My thoughts and prayers are with all who lost their lives, were injured or affected in anyway by yesterday’s events.
“And also for Travis who I know cares deeply for his fans at the Houston community.”
She continued: “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.”
Mirror Online has contacted representatives of Khloe for comment.
