Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Are Literally Breaking the Law In This Instagram Post and Fans Are Furious
So many celebrities believe the rules don’t apply to them. But fans aren’t letting Kylie Jenner get away with that type of thinking — especially since she appears to be breaking the law in her latest Instagram post.
The photo in question is causing a whole lot of controversy on the internet. In it, Travis Scott has his arms draped around Kylie Jenner as they stand outside their vehicle. The caption has a simple and sweet message that says, “partners in crime 4 evaaa.”
But when Kylie wrote the message, she surely didn’t expect fans to literally accuse her of committing a crime. However, nothing escapes the most perceptive Instagram followers. And they noticed this one incriminating detail right away.
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott chose a controversial parking spot
The photo is fine except for one detail — if they are really standing outside their vehicle, then they’re illegally parked in a restricted accessible parking spot (formerly known as a ‘handicap spot’), which is reserved for individuals with disabilities. Parking violations can carry fines of several hundred dollars plus points on your driver’s license. Also, it’s just plain rude.
Instagram users immediately flooded the comments section, saying things like, “As accessibility advocate [sic], I am disappointed you appear to be parked in front of accessibility parking spaces,” and “I guess celebrities can park wherever they want?”
Some fans question if it was just the angle that made the parking spot appear restricted. So far, Kylie Jenner’s rep did not return People’s request for a statement on the incident.
Critics slammed the example that Jenner was setting
Random internet fans weren’t the only ones with critical words for Kylie Jenner.
As disability inclusion group founder Jay Ruderman explained to People, “Accessible parking is meant for people with disabilities who need it. 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.”
Kylie Jenner had issues with differently-abled groups in the past
Shockingly, Jenner faced criticism in the past for a similar issue. In 2015, Jenner posed in a wheelchair during a photoshoot with Interview magazine and critics had plenty of opinions on the message it sent.
“It’s disappointing to see people fall back on the tired and totally untrue idea that being in a wheelchair is limiting,” senior editor of New Mobility Ian Ruder told People at the time. “I think most wheelchair users, myself included, would tell you that our wheelchairs are empowering and enable us to fully live our lives.”
The magazine defended their creative usage of the chair, saying they never meant to be offensive but instead wanted to explore issues of “power and subjectivity.”
Kylie Jenner should probably be a little bit more careful about the types of photos she posts in the future — or she could just park somewhere else.
