Kim Kardashian deletes photograph following Manchester attack after being called out online

Kim Kardashian, like many celebrities, shared messages of sympathy to those impacted by the terrorist attack in Manchester after an Ariana Grande concert on Monday, which left 22 people dead.

But one of Kim’s posts sparked a heap of backlash online so much backlash, that the star removed it from her social media accounts altogether.

Among her tweets sympathizing with everyone affected in Manchester, Kim shared an image of her and Ariana Grande in the crowd of a concert they attended together.

“Concerts are supposed to be a place where you can let loose and have fun,” she tweeted. “So scary to not feel safe in this world. Ariana Grande I love you.”

Following the post, people began accusing the celebrity of making the situation about her because of Kim’s prominence in the photograph compared to Grande.

Ultimately the backlash led to Kim deleting the photograph from Instagram and Twitter.

However, while some were offended by the post, others defended Kim, pointing out that other celebrities also shared similar images but weren’t being called out.

Miley Cyrus, Madonna and many more shared their own messages of support with photographs accompanying the singer, though it seems Kim is the only one to have received enough negative comments to feel compelled to delete it.

Since the attack, Ariana Grande has suspended her Dangerous Woman tour through June 5.
