Kim, Kendall & Kylie Cause Outrage Over Their Rude Behavior at the VMAs

Kim Kardashian Kylie Jenner

Kim Kardashian and younger sisters Kendall and Kylie have sparked outrage after the trio were caught on camera apparently texting during a moment of silence for Michael Brown at the VMAs. When rapper Common asked the audience to take a moment and think about Brown and racial injustice, Kim and her sisters appeared to take the moment of silence as their cue to update their Instagram pages.

While the rest of the glittering crowd seemed to take the moment seriously, the camera panned to the sisters, who had their eyes glued to their cellphone screens. Gee, not too surprising.

Twitter users called the sisters out on their disrespect:

 

Let's face it, the Kardashians only dabble in social politics when it suits their needs -- such as when Kim tried to gain points by claiming she wanted to adopt a Thai orphan while filming KUWTK. Even then, the claim sounded weird, since all she could talk about was how cute the girl was. As if she were adopting a doll.

Whether or not they cared about what is happening in Ferguson is beside the point. Just show some respect when everyone else is thinking of someone who was shot. Kim especially I would think would at least have some small amount of awareness about racial inequality given that she is married to an African American, has a biracial baby, and has expressed her concerns for Nori in the past.

In defense of them, however, I would be surprised if they were the only people in the audience doing this. But the camera caught them.

Keeping it klassy, gals.
