Reality TV personality Kim Kardashian courted backlash from social media users for an “insensitive” tribute to the victims of the explosion at singer Ariana Grande’s Manchester concert.

Kim posted a photograph of herself, Grande, Kendall Jenner, and model Hailey Baldwin as they enjoyed rapper Kanye West’s concert in 2016.
The 36-year-old reality TV star captioned the concert image with a message that read: “I’m praying for everyone in Manchester. This is truly so senseless and heart breaking. I can’t imagine the fear and agony these parents must be going through searching for their kids.
“Concerts are supposed to be a place where you can let loose and have fun. It’s so scary to not feel safe in this world. My heart goes out to Ariana Grande. I love you,” she posted.
This triggered a heated responses from her fans who called it a very “insensitive tribute”.
Later, she deleted the image.
However, some of Kim’s fans supported her and said: “It’s not ugly it’s true; you’re supposed to have fun in concerts, not be afraid now because of this incident, its positivity – and Ari is in the image.”
Another fan commented: “She literally wrote a great, inspiring speech but people don’t care about that and focus on the picture instead.”
