Kardashians mocked for ‘texting’ during VMA Ferguson tribute
Twitter users have lashed out at the Kardashian sisters after it appeared the three had texted during a MTV tribute to the conflict in Ferguson
Twitter users have lashed out at the Kardashian sisters after it appeared the three had texted during a MTV tribute to the conflict in the U.S. town of Ferguson.
In the town, police and demonstrators have clashed after race relations hit a new low following the death of Michael Brown, 18, who was shot by police as he walked unarmed on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Missouri.
As MTV paid a moving tribute to the town, the cameras panned over to Kim Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner, her half-sisters.
All three appeared to be looking at their phones.
One Twitter user wrote: “Kendall Jenner could literally care less about social change.” Others joked that Kim was googling: “Who is Ferguson?”
Another user wrote “peak Kardashian moment.”
Meanwhile, the leading ladies of pop music dominated the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, while an emotional Miley Cyrus and a touching moment between Beyonce and her family led the Moonman award wins of the night.
Cyrus, who set tongues wagging last year with her raunchy “twerking” during her VMAs performance, won the night's top prize for video of the year for “Wrecking Ball” in which she cavorted naked on a wrecking ball.
