Kim Kardashian, 36, somehow made the tragic Manchester bombing at Ariana Grande‘s, 23, concert all about her — That’s what social media goers are saying. The internet pounced on Kim as soon as she took to Twitter and Instagram to share her condolences after she learned about the attack on May 23.
You may be thinking, “What was wrong with what Kim did?” Well, she posted the photo [seen above] to her social media accounts, which led fans to believe she was being insensitive. Social media users called her out for making the horrific act “all about her” by posting a photo where she was seen “partying.”
The photo — which Kim has since deleted — showed her in a crowd with Kendall Jenner, 21, and Hailey Baldwin, 20, at a Kanye West, 39, concert in 2016. Kim captioned the concert snap with a message in correlation with her image. “I’m praying for everyone in Manchester,” Kim began. “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 [Ariana Grande] I love you,” she captioned the photo.
While we’re unable to see the Instagram fire that Kim’s photo caused [since she deleted the pic], there were still tweets of the backlash in the Twitter-sphere. Take a look at some of the scathing reactions to her photo, below.
The tragic suicide bombing occured in Manchester, England at an Ariana Grande concert on May 22. Ariana was not injured in the attack, and she has since postponed her tour and returned home to Florida, where she is emotionally shaken up. See the first photos of her after the attack, right here.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, which left 22 fans dead and over 59 injured. Police have identified the suspect, who died after detonating a ball bearing bomb, as Salman Abedi, 22. Abedi was a British man with Libyan origins.
