Kylie Jenner è attualmente in acqua calda con i fan per aver organizzato una festa di compleanno per i suoi figli che conteneva temi di Astroworld, il festival musicale del rapper Travis Scott che si è concluso in tragedia nel 2021.
La fondatrice di Kylie Cosmetics è nota per aver organizzato celebrazioni stravaganti per la sua famiglia, e questa non è diversa. Per festeggiare i compleanni dei suoi figli Stormi e Aire, la mamma di due figli ha organizzato loro una festa congiunta con enormi gonfiabili delle loro teste, che erano ovviamente un cenno alla copertina dell’album di “Astroworld” di Scott che aveva un gonfiabile dorato della testa del rapper che fungeva da l’ingresso di un parco divertimenti. Anche la stessa opera d’arte è stata una parte fondamentale del festival.
Fans call Kylie Jenner 'tasteless' and 'tone deaf'

The party decorations may have been Kylie Jenner's way to have Stormi and Aire pay homage to their dad, Travis Scott, but fans still berated the reality star for being insensitive. Some believe that the family feels no remorse over what happened, considering how they still use Astroworld themes in celebrations.
"ASTROWORLD was a horrific event and seeing this shows that Kylie and organizers of this party have no negative feelings associated with it and it's a big red flag," tweeted a fan. A fan on Reddit acknowledged that it was "kinda cool" when they did it before, "but given now that Astroworld has a different meaning and how barely anyone in their camp even addressed the victims or failure of the festival, it's tone-deaf." Another noted that even if Astroworld hadn't been Scott's concert, the decorations were still a "tasteless" move. "It could have been someone else's concert that has absolutely no ties to them and I would still feel it is disrespectful to the situation," they penned.
Jenner has mostly been quiet about anything associated with Astroworld, but when the tragedy happened in 2021, she wrote in a statement that she and Scott were "broken and devastated." At the time, she also made it clear that, initially, they had not been made aware of the accident. "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," she added.
