Astroworld: 'Soulless' Kendall and Kylie Jenner slammed for HOT video amid tragedy
To commemorate the opening of their store in the United Arab Emirates, the clothing label Kendall + Kylie shared a video of the KUWTK stars modeling stuff from their new collection.

The video was released to the Kendall + Kylie Instagram account on Wednesday, November 17, with the caption: "We are so excited to announce that you can now shop #kendallandkylie styles in the UAE @kendallandkylie.ae #thedubaimall#thegalleriauae."
After the audience pushed toward the stage during Travis Scott's act at the Astroworld fest at NRG Park in Houston on November 5, ten people died. Scott is the father of Kylie's baby. Officials in Texas said that around 9.15 pm, the crowd began to "squeeze towards the front of the stage," producing fear. Kylie earlier issued a statement in remembrance of the victims on her Instagram Stories, writing: "Travis and I are broken and devastated. My thoughts and prayers are with all who lost their lives, were injured or affected in any way by yesterday’s events. And also for Travis who I know cares deeply for his fans and the Houston community."
Around 150 people have filed lawsuits against Travis after it was revealed that he continued to perform for 30 minutes after the incident was deemed a "mass casualty" occurrence. After the uproar following the Astroworld tragedy, Kylie is hiding out with her family in Los Angeles, away from her $36.5 million property. According to a source, the beauty entrepreneur, who owns many houses in the city, including her opulent Holmby Hills property, is receiving support from the Kardashian-Jenner family because she is concerned about her safety.
Critics lambasted the sisters for advertising the fashion line just weeks after the Astroworld music festival left ten people dead and hundreds injured. One user said, "@kendallandkyle Expensive burial gowns. Once you've washed the blood off #Astroworld #TenDeaths". Another Instagram user commented, "how come u guys launch a new brand from a so cancelled girl @kyliejennner".
One user commented, "Please boycott the Jenners and Kardashians, they don't care about human lives. They only care about money." One user complained, "RIP Astroworld victims. Stop supporting soulless billionaires."
