Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner 'walked past bodies' after Astroworld stampede: Witness
Kylie Jenner had said she didn't know about the stampede but the witness claims she and Kendall Jenner 'walked past bodies and people getting CPR'
A witness at the Astroworld festival stampede has claimed that Kylie and Kendall Jenner just “walked past bodies” after the disaster that killed eight people and injured several others. Kylie was present at the Friday night event on November 4, with her daughter Stormi and sister, Kendall.
The concertgoer who was at the scene told The Sun that the sisters “walked past bodies as they were escorted out of the event.” They went on to say, “Kendall and Kylie each had 6 massive bodyguards with them. After everything went down, Kendall and Kylie were escorted out and walked past bodies and people getting CPR.”

“They kept their heads down and made sure no one saw their faces. They were doing everything so that no one would notice them and were covered up so no one could see their reaction. One guy got carted out in front of them. They were wearing masks and had their hoodies up. The area they were in was enclosed — where people had the family passes,” the witness added. However, Kylie and Kendall’s representative refuted the allegations and said, “Your story is egregious and absolutely false. Neither of the girls were nearby.”
Earlier, Kylie has said that she did not know about the stampede. In a statement, the 24-year-old mentioned: “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. 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.”
The mother-of-one also sent her “deepest condolences” to all the victims’ families and “will be praying for the healing of everyone who has been impacted”. She also showed her concern for Scott who “cares deeply for his fans and the Houston community”.
The rapper also shared a statement on his Twitter page after the disaster. He wrote, “I am 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. Houston PD has my total support as they continue to look into this tragic loss of life. I am committed to working together with the Houston community to heal and support the families in need. Thank you to Houston PD, Fire Department and the NRG Park for their immediate response and support.”
Meanwhile, the witness account of seeing Kylie leaving the concert after the tragedy has attracted a lot of criticism online. An angry user asked, “Kylie Jenner and Stormi and Kendall Jenner should explain why security escorted them out during the melee 👁 #travisscott #ASTROWORLD.” Another one said, “this astroworld festival tragedy is just reason number 235684 on why kylie and kendall are bullshit.” “This #AstroWorld situation should remind you .. these influencers and celebrities do NOT care about you . Travis mocking the kids dying .. Kylie Jenner and Kendall leaving their stories up and taking cute videos while ambulances rolling through. Sad,” a tweet read.
