Khloé Kardashian has been catching heat for an Instagram post that she made the day after the tragic events at the concert unfolded.

The Good American founder, 37, posted a sexy selfie with Scott Disick with the caption “About last night…...” which many social media users found as insensitive considering the events that took place the same night.

One user took to Twitter to throw shade at the reality star, writing: “Leave it to @khloekardashian to post about #lastnight. How rude and heartless can you be? People actually died.”

Meanwhile, Khloé’s older sister Kourtney Kardashian has also been the center of public criticism as she continues to post about her Poosh business in the midst of the tragedy.

The 42-year-old seemed to be unbothered while posting a promotional Instagram story with the caption “Your Poosh-Approved Christmas List,” which many users found insensitive considering the timing.

The mom-of-three also posted some snaps while baking with her son Reign, 6, along with another story of her “pumpkin gnocchi” meal without mentioning the tragedy that occured just days before.

“Kourtney Kardashian posting on her story as if people didn’t die at her sisters baby daddies festival last night. Tone deaf af,” one person wrote on Twitter.

Even the family’s matriarch, Kris Jenner, couldn’t escape the criticism, after social media users went after the momager for flaunting pictures of flowers she received for her birthday without acknowledging the Astroworld tragedy.

"Kris Jenner posting 30 pics today of the flowers she received for her birthday feels weird given the circumstances this weekend in Houston," one fan tweeted.

Scott himself has been the center of the criticism after he reportedly continued on with the concert despite the deadly chaos that was unraveling in the crowd.

However, in a post shared on Kylie’s Instagram story, the makeup guru claimed that the pair “weren’t aware of any fatalities” until after the show, assuring fans that the rapper would have stopped the concert if he knew.

Scott, Live Nation and NRG Stadium have since been hit with a lawsuit requesting over $1 million which alleges that the rapper “incited the crowd.”
