KHLOE Kardashian has been slammed amid claims she reacted to Kyle Rittenhouse verdict after remaining silent following the Astroworld tragedy
The 37-year-old tweeted she was “speechless and disgusted” hours after Rittenhouse, 18, was acquitted after fatally shooting two men during protests and riots against police brutality last year.
But some Twitter users were quick to condemn the reality TV personality for what they said was a comment on Rittenhouse’s not guilty verdict on Friday.
This is because she did not issue a statement about the Astroworld tragedy earlier this month.
Tweeting on Friday night, hours after Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all counts, she said: “Speechless and disgusted!!”
A jury found the teenager not guilty of reckless and intentional homicide and other charges stemming from the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter riot.
Khole had posted her statement without context, but given the news of the verdict, Twitter users were quick to suspect she was talking about the outcome of the trial.
One said: ‘I’m pretty sure you’re talking about Rittenhouse, however a lot of people are about to turn those three words against you considering you didn’t say much about AstroWorld.”
Another said: “What are you referring to? The innocent lives that were lost at Travis’s concert, or… .????”
Ten people died at a performance on November 8 organized by the rapper Travis Scott — partner of Khole’s half-sister Kylie Jenner.
The tragedy happened after the crowd of about 50,000 people rushed the stage, causing people to be crushed and trampled in the masses.
In the aftermath of the unprecedented news, Kylie, Kim, and Kendall made statements regarding the loss of life, although Khole did not.
Three days after what one of America’s worst-ever concert disasters, she made an appearance on Instagram, posting a sultry set of snaps.
Underneath one person commented: “People are dead Khloe.”
