Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner have broken their silence on the tragedy that had unfolded at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival. The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” stars took to their respective Instagram Stories on Monday to acknowledge the tragedy and said they were hurt and shocked by the events.

“Absolutely heartbroken for the lives who were lost and anyone who was hurt at Astroworld,” wrote Kim. “Just like all of you, our family is in shock by the tragedy. We are keeping all of the victims, families, and loves impacted in our prayers for healing—as well as Travis who we know cares so much about his fans and is truly devastated,” she added. She also posted the same statement to all her other social media profiles.

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

For her part, Kendall, who watched the concert with her pregnant sister Kylie Jenner, said she’s still out of words over what had taken place at the Astroworld festival. “I’m truly broken for the families that have lost loved ones and my prayers go out to everyone involved,” she wrote.

“Sending everyone who has been affected all of my love and wishing them strength during this incredibly devastating and sensitive time,” she added.

Kim and Kendall’s statements came two days after the tragic incident that left dozens of concertgoers severely injured and eight dead. The concert, which took place in Scott’s hometown and was attended by thousands of fans, took a turn for the worse when a huge crowd started pushing toward the front of the stage during Scott’s performance. The sudden surge resulted in unconscious bodies being lifted and surfed through the crowd, as other attendees begged for the show to stop as they watched others around them collapse.

In a statement following the incident, Mayor Sylvester Turner and the city police issued a statement describing the tragedy as a “mass casualty incident.” They also confirmed that an investigation is underway.

Scott wrote in a separate statement on Nov. 6 that he was “absolutely devastated” by the lives lost during his concert.
