Inside the Kardashians' most 'tone deaf' posts as family slammed for 'insensitive' photos after Astroworld tragedy

THE Kardashians have been slammed for their "tone-deaf" posts amid the Astroworld tragedy, but it's not the first time the famous family have been accused of "insensitivity".

From Kim's luxury island getaway and Kendall's "unsafe" birthday party during the coronavirus pandemic to Kylie's "blackfishing" accusations, the reality stars have faced their fair share of backlash.


Khloe, Kourtney and their mom Kris were all slammed over their social media activity in the wake of a fatal crowd surge during Travis Scott's set at Astroworld Festival in Houston.

Eight people died and hundreds were injured in a horrifying stampede at NRG Park on Friday evening.

Despite the devastating event, several members of the KUWTK clan failed to acknowledge the innocent deaths.

Kourtney was slammed for promoting her lifestyle website Poosh on Instagram just hours later, while Khloe posted a sexy selfie with Scott Disick, from the concert and captioned it: "About last night.

Kris, meanwhile, shared a "tacky" photo of the roses she received from Travis Barker for her 66th birthday.


Last October, Kim faced a slew of backlash for whisking her friends and family to a luxury island to celebrate her 40th birthday amid the coronavirus pandemic.

She shared photos of the group partying, swimming and relaxing on the beach.

The mother-of-four wrote at the time: “After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.

“We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more.”

Fans were outraged by Kim’s “out of touch” post and "disgusting display of wealth" as many are still out of work or fighting for their lives due to the global pandemic.


Kendall was slammed for throwing a packed Halloween-themed 25th birthday bash last October.

She faced major backlash for hosting a party with over 100 unmasked celebrity guests during the coronavirus pandemic.

Images and a video surfaced of an unmasked Kendall blowing out a birthday cake as the masked waiter holding it tried to back away made the rounds on social media.

A source exclusively told The Sun that the controversial birthday party made the hotel’s staff feel “uncomfortable".

The insider – who was at the bash – said: “The staff were under the impression it would be handled safely, no one felt comfortable."

They added that the Kardashians were well aware of the backlash they would receive but “did not care.”

They threw the “unsafe” bash anyway, though attendees were asked to take a coronavirus test prior to arrival. 


In 2017, Kim sparked uproar when she dressed as late singer Aaliyah Haughton for Halloween.

She wore a crystal choker, jeweled bra and black pants to channel the R&B artist's outfit in her Try Again music video.

The SKIMS founder was accused of racism and cultural appropriation, with one user tweeting at the time: “Legend or not Aaliyah is a black woman and you’re not."

Kim later defended her outfit, saying: "I saw online that some people thought my costume was in poor taste and I am truly sorry if that offended anyone, but I wasn't dressing up as a race or culture but rather as a woman whom I admire.

'We don't see color in my home. We were paying homage to people and artists we love and respect – it’s that simple!'

Critics were also offended by Kim saying she "doesn't see color" in her apology.


In December last year, Khloe was slammed for sharing photos of herself surrounded by designer bags – despite millions of Americans living in financial instability at the time.

She posed in glittery boots, a fur coat and surrounded by huge Louis Vuitton bags in her living room, with a Christmas tree in the background.

“Must be nice to flaunt your money in the middle of a global pandemic when most people haven’t worked in months,” one critic raged at the time.

Another added: “You should donate to some local food banks instead of this cr*p… disappointing.”


In June, Kim was accused of "cultural appropriation" after wearing earrings with a Hindu symbol in a fashion shoot.

She sparked backlash after sporting hoop earrings featuring Om, the central sacred symbol of Hinduism.

The beauty mogul wore the earrings with a revealing crop top and leather pants while lounging on a pink bed.

Critics accused her of "disrespecting" Hinduism by wearing the Om symbol as an "accessory."

One wrote: "Is now a good time to mention that the Om is a sacred symbol to Hindus and not just an accessory?"

Another added: "She is not wearing the Om symbol to mention the significance or spirituality behind it. It's just an accessory for her."


Kylie has been accused of blackfishing several times in recent months after showing off noticeably darker skin.

She came under fire late last month while filming herself and Kendall in the car on the way to their sister Kourtney's engagement party with Travis Barker.

Critics pointed out the siblings' noticeably darker skin in the short video.

Weeks later, Kylie showed off very tanned skin and a long braid while posing in her car.

Blackfishing refers to someone pretending to be Black or mixed-race using things like hairstyling and make-up.

Unlike her older siblings, Kylie does not have Armenian heritage. She is Caitlyn and Kris Jenner's second daughter.

Kris has English, Irish, Dutch, German, and Scottish roots, according to Showbiz CheatSheet.

Caitlyn, a former Olympian, has Canadian and Welsh roots and like Kris, also traces her heritage back to England, Ireland, Scotland and Holland.


Kylie came under fire for sharing numerous photos of her luxury bags and shoes amid the pandemic – as well as those belonging to her three-year-old daughter Stormi.

In September 2020, she racked up the criticism for getting Stormi a $12,000 Hermes backpack for the toddler's first day of school.

RHOBH alum Bethenny Frankel was as unimpressed as Kylie's fans, writing: "I'm no stranger to an @Hermes_Paris bag & have a daughter & luxury cars.

"But flaunting (under the guise of a back to school post) during a pandemic & the greatest unemployment crisis in our lifetime is a choice."

Despite the backlash, in the months that followed Kylie went on to pose in a $18,000 Versace jumpsuit.

She also gave fans a tour of her accessories closet, which was bursting with eye-wateringly expensive Hermes, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton shoes and bags.


Kris was blasted in December 2020 for making “tone-deaf” announcement about the family scoring a deal with Hulu – just as Kim was calling to stop Brandon Bernard being executed.

The matriarch posted: “Excited to announce our new multi year partnership with Hulu and Star and what’s to come in 2021."

It came just hours before Indiana inmate Brandon was executed, despite Kim's impassioned pleas and campaign to save his life.

Kris was faced with online critics who slammed her “lack of morals” and “bad timing” of the global content deal. 

One person asked: “How low are your morals that you’re announcing this while @KimKardashian and the rest of us are trying to #SaveBrandonBernard?”

Brandon was 18 when he was found guilty, alongside Christopher Vialva, of carjacking and murdering the Bagleys at the Fort Hood army base in Texas 20 years ago.

He was executed by lethal injection at a federal prison facility in Terre Haute, Indiana.
