Another day, another Kardashian-Jenner Kontroversy.
This time, it’s Kylie in the hot seat.
The youngest member of the KarJenner clan caught this week flack after posting an Instagram photo apparently showing her luxury car parked in a handicap space. Boyfriend Travis Scott featured as well.
“Partners in crime 4 evaaa,” the caption reads.
And “crime 4 evaaa” it is because parking in a handicap space without the proper tag is illegal. And fans were quick to point that out.
“Parking in a handicapped spot? Really? I hope you gout a ticket,” one user wrote.
“Come on… blocking disabled parking? Could you be anymore selfish and inconsiderate?” Another commented.
Users who rely on accessible parking also expressed their frustration with the makeup mogul.
“It doesn’t surprise me they are parking in a handicap parking space because she’s a billionaire and think she can do anything she wants,” one user wrote. “Is it only a parking ticket to park in handicap? I’m on disability and it’s so important that people who do not have a permit to park in a handicap do not out of respect for us who are handicap and need it! Kylie, you should know better. Make a statement to the handicap foundation and own up too it.”
Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation—an organization dedicated to advocating for advancement and inclusion of people with disabilities—gave a statement to People magazine pertaining to the issue.
“Accessible parking is meant for people with disabilities who need it,” he said. “As a role model to many, this is an opportunity for Kylie Jenner to use her celebrity status to help society understand why accessible parking is a basic right for people with disabilities to be included in daily life.”
In 2015, Jenner appeared on the cover of Interview magazine in a wheelchair to comment on how she felt “limited” by fame. She did not apologize for the cover, but the magazine did release a statement saying their “intention was certainly not to offend anyone.”
Jenner has yet to address the commenters or remove the photo.
