Kylie Jenner has been criticized heavily online as her Instagram Stories still show clips of the Astroworld festival were eight people died due to a stampede. The November 5 event was Travis Scott’s third edition of his Astroworld Festival, but it ended in tragedy. Moments after the fest at NRG Park in Houston started, it turned fatal due to the uncontrollable crowd.

Houston Fire Chief Samuel Pena confirmed, “At least 8 confirmed fatalities and many injuries. Around 50,000 people attended the Astroworld Festival. At around 9 or 9:15, the crowd began to compress toward the front of the stage and that caused panic and people were getting injured. HFD transported 17 people to hospitals. 11 of those transported were in cardiac arrest.”

Reports said some 300 people were treated for injuries such as cuts and bruises at the event which was attended by 50,000 people.

While most people moaned about the tragedy and expressed their condolences for those who lost their lives, Jenner seemed to be unaffected. Her Instagram Stories are still up on her handle, which not just shows cheering crowd and Scott performing, but also ambulances arriving to administer to injured people. The 24-year-old model, who has a daughter with the rapper, is also yet to release any statement regarding the stampede.



 

Jenner’s “insensitive attitude” left many furious on Twitter. A user tweeted, “The tragedy at Travis Scott's #ASTROWORLDFest occurred around 9.15PM. Kylie Jenner posted stories from the event at 12AM- 4 hours after 300 people were injured and 8 were pronounced dead. What in the insensitivity? #AstroWorld #austintexas #AstroWorld2021 #ASTROWORLDFest.” The second user commented, “Young person fighting for life in the ambulance, but let me update my story first, bc u know priorities🙄 #kyliejenner #ASTROWORLDFest.”



 

 



 

 



 

A person wrote, “@KylieJenner @trvisXX you guys aint shit, this is pure evil these are your fans because of them you are who you are and you couldn’t even stop the music ik you seen the ambulance #canceltravisXX.”

Another one said, “@KylieJenner literally so disconnected from reality … still filming while there’s an ambulance going through the crowd, people dying on the ground. Disgusting. #ASTROWORLDFest.” “On Kylie Jenner story there’s literally a video where the ambulance is in the crowd she could’ve easily let him know or he could’ve been aware and not done anything we literally have no idea,” a user added.



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

A tweet slamming Jenner read, “Kylie Jenner is selfish and ugly heart.. she didn't even sympathize with the 8 people who died!!.. ok let's say, she was excited and didn't notice it.. but until this time she didn't  delete the video of ambulance carrying their bodies?  This person is horrible.” Another stated, “Him and drake clearly saw the ambulance vehicle and ppl jumping around on it while blue and red flashing lights were on and diddnt do shit about it. Look at Kylie jenners story too.”

A user asked the mother-of-one, “Soooooooo we're just gonna ignore what happened at your baby daddys music festival???? You have a video on your IG with the ambulance in the crowd and you don't give fuckkkk. I hope y'all lose everything. You don't care about your fans at all.” Another rebuked, “Why did @KylieJenner post to her story videos of the show tonight as if you cannot clearly see an ambulance in one of the videos she posted ... weird insensitive b*tch.”
