Kourtney Kardashian slammed as 'disgusting' & 'tone deaf' for promoting company after Travis Scott’s concert tragedy

KOURTNEY Kardashian was slammed as "disgusting" and "tone deaf" for promoting her company Poosh after Travis Scott's concert tragedy.

Eight people lost their lives on Friday at the Astroworld Festival at NRG Park in Houston, Texas.

The controversy kicked off when Kourtney took to her Instagram Stories to share an ad about her company, which showed her in lingerie with black gloves and holding a drink.

Over the snap, the words, "Your Poosh-Approved Christmas List," were written.

However, people were not happy at all as they took to Reddit to voice their frustration over the reality star's seemingly lack of awareness.

One person wrote: "God, maybe take a break from posting your vapid crap for a day, Kourtney? You know, in light of what YOUR FAMILY is connected to?

"Edit: she's not responsible duh but this is tone deaf as f**k."

Another chimed in: "Yes, this is disgusting of her," while one added, "does anyone expect anything more from Kourtney?"

The country was shocked upon learning of the tragedy that occurred in Houston, which started as a crowd of 50,000 showed up for the two-day event.

Officials in Texas said the crowd began to "compress towards the front of the stage" at around 9:15 pm, sparking panic.

Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña said recently: “We had at least eight confirmed fatalities today. We had scores of individuals injured at this event.”

He added that a "mass casualty incident" was triggered at 9:38 pm and investigations are ongoing.

The Fire Chief added: "At approximately 9:15 pm the crowd began to compress towards the front of the stage and that caused some panic and it started causing some injuries.

"People began to fall out, become unconscious, and it created additional panic."

Event organizers announced on Saturday, November 6 that the festival was canceled.


Rapper Travis would respond to the devastating event on his social media and said: "I am absolutely devastated by what took place last night.

"My prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival…"

The hitmaker's baby mama Kylie Jenner, who is currently pregnant, would also take to her Instagram Stories and react, claiming she did not know people had died at the concert until after the show.

She wrote in a statement: "Travis and I are broken and devastated.

"My thoughts and prayers are with all who lost their lives, were injured or affected in anyway by yesterday’s events.

"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."


Her words came after an onsite insider exclusively told The Sun Kylie and her sister Kendall, 26, "walked past bodies as they were escorted out of the event."

The source recalled: "Kendall and Kylie each had 6 massive bodyguards with them.

"After everything went down, Kendall and Kylie were escorted out and walked past bodies and people getting CPR…"

Khloe, 37, was also called out for posting a sexy selfie with Scott Disick, 38, from the same night as the concert.
