Kylie Jenner has managed to seriously piss off plenty of people with her latest set of thirst shots.
Sure, pictures of a person doing a casual squat in the loos is regular Friday night out with the girls fare. But then she also posted a loved up picture with her partner, rapper Travis Scott, captioned “partner in crime 4 evaaa” with a set of emojis that included the cum one? What?
They’re just there, standing, Kendall in an ’80s-style pink blazer, looking away disinterested, Scott frothing her, in front of a very expensive open car door (a rear-hinged rear door! Fancy!) in an underground parking lot.
But folks were quick to point out that they appear to be parked in a disabled space. Not a pram space, which would be fine, absolutely, we all know you have a tiny cherub, Stormi. But a disabled space, when Jenner is an able-bodied person.
Perhaps the car is too big for a regular parking space? Is that a thing? Maybe one of them or their party was injured and nabbed a temporary disabled parking permit?
We just don’t know. But we do know people are mad at it. And Jenner may have posted proof that she committed a $250USD crime on the internet.
Here’s how some people – including differently abled people – have slagged off Jenner for the move:
“I believe you. It’s a crime to park in the handicap parking spot. I sure hope you are bragging because you’re parked there. Karma has a way of making things equal. I would not tempt fate.”
“Please pay the $250 fine if you don’t mind.”
“As someone who’s actually disabled, it’s hard enough to find parking without abled people using the spots illegally. If neither of you are disabled, you should be ashamed. Check your privilege and do better.“
Back in 2015, Kylie Jenner did a shoot for Interview Magazine where she posed in a wheelchair. There was widespread backlash to the move, with disability advocates accusing her of trivialising disability for fashion.

And last year, her sister Kendall Jenner was also dragged when shots of her Ferrari showed it parked in an accessible spot outside an LA sushi restaurant. A spokesperson later released a statement blaming her valet: “The valet parked Kendall’s car in the handicap spot. Kendall ran and jumped in the car when she saw the paparazzi instead of waiting for valet to bring her car to her.“
Perhaps the Kardashian–Jenner family could simply refrain from using accessible parking spaces? And at the very least not post shots of their flagrant disregard for other people on social media? Just a suggestion.Source: Now To Love
