Kylie Jenner slams Travis Scott's cheating photo prank: "The internet scares me sometimes for real"
Bahamas native Christian Adam was quite thrilled with his stunt, especially when the 'Sicko Mode' rapper responded to his video with a "Shaking my f***ing head" comment
Kylie Jenner has a strict no-tolerance policy for anyone trying to mess with her or her family over the internet. On Wednesday, the Kylie Cosmetics owner slammed a YouTube user, who played a prank by leaking a staged image of a Travis Scott lookalike with a woman to make it appear as if the rapper was cheating on Kylie.
After releasing the image on Monday, Bahamas native Christian Adam uploaded a 17-minute video onto YouTube on Wednesday, explaining how it was done and bragging about his ability to "fool the internet."
He wrote in the video description section, "Never believe anything you see on the internet :)" before adding a disclaimer, "This video was NOT made to intentionally hurt Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner or the entire Kardashian family in ANY way shape or form."
However, this did not go down too well with the Kardashian-Jenner family, for soon, Kylie posted a screenshot of the video and called Adam out for his "prank."
In a since-deleted post on Instagram, Kylie wrote, "Idk if this is really a social experiment to some people but you're messing with real people, real relationships, real family. I'm happy my relationship is strong because this is getting out of hand. The internet scares me sometimes for real."
Even her big sister, Kim Kardashian, joined in on the slamming and tweeted about the video. "I hate that I am bringing attention to this but this is absolutely disgusting that you would find this funny to mess with Travis & Kylie who just started a family together. This is really damaging to relationships, families and is just so wrong!"
After heavy play on social media since it was uploaded, Scott took to Twitter to pan the image and said it was not him.
"I don't be on balcony wit no thots. That s--t lame. Try again u trollssss. Me and my wifey sturdy. Back to celebrating!!! " Travis tweeted.
The Astroworld rapper too slammed all the trolls who were hyping the image, saying he "Only got love for my wife."
Even Khloe, who herself has been burnt badly with cheating drama in the past, shared her thoughts on the sick prank. "People are absolutely disgusting! The mind games this would do to somebody… That is so completely not OK! This person should be so ashamed of themselves! What filth," she wrote.
In the 17-minute long YouTube clip, Christian explained: "What I'm gonna do for this video is see if I can take one of those celebrities and fool the world."
The experiment was inspired by Yes Theory, a group that pulls pranks and produces videos to create "challenges for ourselves and for strangers and getting out of our comfort zones along the way." The group was behind the perplexing photo of Justin Bieber munching on a burrito sideways.
"That photo that you see of Travis Scott allegedly cheating on his significant other Kylie Jenner was completely staged," Adam says. "The goal of this video is not to hurt anybody's relationship, but it's to see how gullible is the internet. The question is: do the internet even care about the truth sometimes?"
Despite the negative press that came his way after the reveal, Christian was quite thrilled when the 'Sicko Mode' rapper commented on his video echoing the thought of many other people out there in the world, "Shaking my f--king head."
