Kylie Jenner’s Astroworld Birthday Controversy Divides The Internet

Kylie Jenner, American reality star and makeup mogul, has sparked controversy online after she posted videos from her kids’ joint birthday party, which was Astroworld-themed. In November 2021, Astroworld became infamous after a crowd surge at a concert resulted in 10 deaths, including a nine-year-old minor, and hundreds of injuries.

Despite the tragedy, Jenner used Astroworld-themed decorations for her kids’ birthday party, causing a divide among the online community. While some criticized her for being insensitive towards the victims and their families, others defended her choice of decoration. They were citing the inspiration behind the theme and its connection to Travis Scott, the father of her kids and owner of the Astroworld label.

Jenner has used the inflatable Astroworld-themed decorations since her daughter Stormi’s first birthday in 2019. The decorations were inspired by Scott’s third album, Astroworld, which was his favorite amusement park as a child. However, after the tragedy, Jenner skipped the theme for Stormi’s birthday in February 2022; instead hosted a joint party with Kim Kardashian’s daughter, Chicago.

Jenner and Scott faced immense backlash for being insensitive towards the families of the victims of the Astroworld tragedy. However, many fans also defended their choice; stating that it is more of a tradition than an insult to the people. The online community remains divided on the issue, with some criticizing Jenner for her actions; while others believe that she is entitled to celebrate her kids’ birthdays as she pleases.

Some view it as insensitive towards the victims and families of the Astroworld tragedy; others defend Jenner’s choice of decoration and the debate goes on. What do you guys think?
