It’s fair to say that Kim Kardashian can’t help herself at times and this latest gaffe shows just how out of touch the reality star can be.
Kardashian has been heavily criticised for a tweet directed at Ariana Grande, who is at the centre of the terrorist attacks which occurred during her concert in Manchester, leaving 22 dead and 59 injured. Among the dead are children.
Kim initially released an appropriate dedication on social media, where she stated, “I can’t imagine the fear and agony these parents must be going through searching for their kids.”

However, in true Kardashian style, she just couldn’t resist broadcasting her association with Grande, and posted a picture of herself and Ariana at a party once upon a time with the caption,
“Concerts are supposed to be a place where u can let loose & have fun. So scary to not feel safe in this world. @ arianagrande I love you.”
Adding insult to injury is the fact that Kendall Jenner is also in the shot, along with socialite Hailey Baldwin.
We’re not sure why Kardashian decided to use this particular photo to show support for Ariana, since the pop star is all the way to the left while Kim is centre stage, glowing beautifully. It seems her message of support was vastly drowned out by some serious narcissism.
The reaction to her fuck up was understandably furious,

She’s since deleted the tweet, but like everything on the internet, screenshots are forever. Perhaps next time Kardashian can try her best to not make a deadly terrorist attack all about her.
