Kylie Jenner found herself at the center of controversy after posting and subsequently deleting a pro-Israel message on her social media account in the wake of a deadly attack on Israel. The incident occurred following a tragic attack at the Israeli electronic music festival Universo Paralello near the Gaza Strip, resulting in the loss of at least 260 lives.
The makeup mogul initially shared a pro-Israel message on her Instagram account from the Stand With Us account. The message displayed the Israeli flag with the caption, “Now and always we stand with the people of Israel!” Kylie encouraged her followers to share the message, expressing support for Israel during a challenging time.
However, her post received swift and strong backlash from some of her followers. One commenter expressed shock and disappointment, noting that Kylie is a successful businesswoman and should research before posting support for what they referred to as a “genocide.” Another commenter questioned her humanity in light of the post.
In response to the criticism, Kylie Jenner deleted the pro-Israel post from her Instagram Stories just one hour after initially sharing it.
The tragic event at the Israeli music festival, which featured artists like Aladin, Artifex, Astral Projection, and others, unfolded over the course of a weekend. The festival was marred by a rocket attack launched by Hamas militants at 6:30 am on Saturday, followed by a direct attack on festivalgoers by Hamas operatives half an hour later.
Kylie Jenner’s brief show of support for Israel and its subsequent removal of the post highlights the sensitive nature of global events and the potential impact of public figures’ statements on social media.
