Khloé Kardashian is being dragged on social media for sharing saucy snaps of herself merely days after the Astroworld Tragedy where her ‘brother-in-law’ performed.

Mere days after eight people were killed and hundreds of others injured after a crowd surge during rappers Travis Scott and Drake’s Texas concert, Astroworld, social media has had just about enough of the Kardashian clan.

Khloé Kardashian’s Instagram profile was flooded with scathing comments on Tuesday after she shared three pictures of herself striking various sexy poses on the social media platform.  

While a minority of her fans were happy to see new pictures of the media personality, the majority of comments were scathing, calling her “tone deaf”.

One user said: “Read the room. The first Astroworld victim was buried yesterday.”

Another fan reminded Khloé that the world is watching them: “People are watching you guys. I think we can pause this for a week or so after people died at TS concert.  Just a thought.”

Khloé took to her Instagram stories on Monday sharing her sister Kim Kardashian’s message to her fans on how “absolutely heartbroken” she is for the lives lost and all those injured at Astroworld.

“Just like all of you, our family is in shock by the tragedy. We are keeping all of the victims, families and loved ones impacted in our prayers for healing – as well as Travis who we know cares so much about his fans and is truly devastated,” the Keeping up with the Kardashians star shared.

People on the gram were not impressed by this ‘second-hand message’ it seems, heavily criticising the timing of Khloé ‘s saucy pics.

“People just died while your family watched… maybe take a break for a week,” was another one of the scathing comments accompanying Khloe’s post.

Another fan wrote: “Little too soon to be posting pics of yourself without even acknowledging the mass tragedy.”

Drake, who made a surprise appearance during Travis Scott’s set at Astroworld, finally broke his silence on Monday, taking to Instagram to share his condolences.

“I’ve spent the past few days trying to wrap my mind around this devastating tragedy. I hate resorting to this platform to express an emotion as delicate as grief but this is where I find myself. My heart is broken for the families and friends of those who lost their lives and for anyone who is suffering. I will continue to pray for all of them, and will be of service in any way I can. May God be with you all,” the rapper shared.

Scott and Drake have since been sued for having “incited mayhem” at the Astroworld concert on Sunday.
