Michael Brown Tribute, MTV VMAs Outrage - Were Kim Kardashian, Kylie, Kendall Jenner Texting?
There was a tribute to Michael Brown during the MTV VMAs last night (August 24, 2014) and Kim Kardashian along with sisters Kylie and Kendall caused outrage on social media.
Kim was spotted playing on her phone during a moment of silence held as a tribute to the conflict in Ferguson and Twitter was furious.
The 33-year-old reality TV star and her half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, 18 and 16 respectively, were blasted on Twitter by angry fans last night (24.08.14) after they were caught staring at their mobiles during the period of reflection at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) held at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
Mieke Olva Vlok posted: ''Let's not pretend we're shocked the #Kardashian girls were texting during a moment of silence for #Ferguson at the #VMAs (sic).''
While Kid Codi, wrote: ''I would pay TOP DOLLAR to see Kim Kardashian point out Ferguson on a map.''
The emotional tribute was led by rapper Common, who had asked for the audience's undivided attention whilst they honour Michael Brown, who died after being shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri, earlier this month.
Common said: ''I want us all to take a moment of silence for Michael Brown and for peace in this country and in the world.''
The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star are yet to comment on the backlash, but it is believed there may have been a delay in the footage being shown on television, which could mean they weren't using their phones at the time of the tribute.
