KEY POINTS

  • Khloe Kardashian shared steamy photos of herself posing in a sheer bodycon dress on Instagram Monday
  • Critics called her out for posting the snaps as details about Astroworld victims are continuing to emerge
  • Eight people, including a 14-year-old, were killed and hundreds were injured at Travis Scott's Astroworld Festival Friday

Khloe Kardashian is facing backlash for posting thirst traps on social media amid the tragedy that occurred at the Astroworld Festival in Texas last week.

On Monday — less than three days after a crowd surge during Travis Scott's Houston show killed eight people and left hundreds injured — the 37-year-old reality star took to Instagram to share steamy photos of herself posing in a sheer bodycon dress that showed off her figure.

Kardashian captioned the post with emojis of a panda, a zebra and paw prints in reference to her outfit's animal print design.

Critics immediately called out Kardashian, whose sister Kylie Jenner is in a relationship with Scott, in the comments section of her post for uploading the snaps as heartbreaking details about Astroworld victims are continuing to emerge.

"Little too soon to be posting pics of yourself without even acknowledging the mass tragedy," one commented.

"Tone-deaf. Shame on you [for real]," another wrote.

A third user wrote, "People are watching you guys. I think we can pause this for a week or so after people died at [Travis Scott's] concert [heart emoji]. Just a thought."

"Read the room. The first Astroworld victim was buried yesterday," another wrote.

Eight people, including a 14-year-old, were killed and more than 300 were injured when the crowd at Houston's NRG Park rushed toward the front of the stage at Scott's Astroworld Festival. Officials have labeled the incident a "mass casualty event."

At least 25 people, including a 10-year-old, were rushed to the hospital following the deadly crowd surge. Eleven of those hospitalized were in cardiac arrest at the time, according to Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo.

Members of the Kardashian-Jenner family have since released statements addressing the tragedy. 

Kylie, who is currently pregnant with her second child with Scott and shares 3-year-old daughter Stormi with the rapper, said in a statement Sunday that they were "broken and devastated."

"My thoughts and prayers are with all who lost their lives, were injured or affected in any way by yesterday’s events," she continued. "Also for Travis, who I know cares deeply for his fans and the Houston community. I want to make it clear we weren’t aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show and in no world would have continued filming or performing."

In her own statement posted to Instagram Story and Twitter Monday, Kim Kardashian said their family was "in shock" and that they were "keeping all of the victims, families and loves impacted in our prayers for healing." She also showed support for Scott, saying that he "cares so much about his fans and is truly devastated."

Her mom, Kris Jenner, as well as her sister, Khloe, shared her statement on their own social media accounts.

Kendall Jenner, who watched the concert with Kylie, said she was "truly broken for the families that have lost loved ones and my prayers go out to everyone involved." The model also sent her love and well-wishes to the families who were affected by the tragedy.

Scott has since announced that he will be covering the funeral costs of those who died and will offer free mental health care and additional aid to those impacted. The rapper and concert promoter Live Nation have already been hit with nearly two dozen lawsuits.
