Kim Kardashian Deletes Tweet About Manchester After Backlash

Even though other celebs posted photos with Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian was the one who received backlash for it

Kim Kardashian has deleted a tweet expressing her solidarity with and love for Ariana Grande after an attack at her concert in Manchester Monday night. “Concerts are supposed to be a place where you can let loose and have fun. So scary not to feel safe in this world. Ariana Grande I love you,” Kardashian tweeted. The tweet also included a photo of Kardashian, her sister Kendall Jenner and Grande, taken last year at a Kanye West concert.

 

Kardashian also tweeted earlier that she was praying for everyone in Manchester. As a mother of two, she also expressed that she couldn’t imagine what the parents of missing children were experiencing.

Kardashian’s tweets were just a few amid a flood of support that has poured in for both Grande and the victims of the attack. Several other celebrities also included photos of themselves with Grande. However, many found the picture in Kardashian’s tweet to Grande inappropriate because she was included in the photo. Grande posted an Instagram after the concert she attended with Kardashian and Jenner, however, calling the experience “magical.”

Here’s some of the backlash Kardashian received after posting her tweet:

Kardashian has deleted the tweet since the backlash began. Other Twitter users, however, did not see a problem with her initial tweet, pointing out that posting a picture at a concert made sense.

The attack from Monday night has been determined a terrorist attack. At least 22 have died and 59 are left injured.

It is the worst terrorist attack in the U.K. since the London bombings on July 7, 2005, that claimed 52 lives.

The explosion happened in the foyer of the arena, not the main event hall, according to the British Transport Police, which protects adjacent Victoria Station. Concertgoers were evacuated from the Manchester Arena following a “loud bang,” Greater Manchester Police said.
