Kim Kardashian deletes tweet about Ariana Grande concert attack after criticism
UPI News Service, 05/24/2017
Kim Kardashian is being called self-centered by fans after she shared a photo of herself with Ariana Grande as a show of sympathy following a bombing at the singer's concert.
The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star deleted the tweet Tuesday in the wake of a bombing that killed 22 people at Grande's concert in Manchester the day before.
"Concerts are supposed to be a place where u can let loose & have fun. So scary to not feel safe in this world. @arianagrande I love you," she captioned the picture, which features Kardashian, Grande and Kendall Jenner.
Kardashian deleted the post after social media users accused her of making the attack about herself.
"We're never going to forget when you posted an inappropriate pic and made the #Manchesterbombing all about you," one person captioned a screenshot of Kardashian's tweet.
"Kim Kardashian is the only person who would post a picture of themselves as a 'tribute' to the Manchester bombing... actually sad," another added.
Kardashian left up her other tweets about the attack.
"I can't imagine the fear and agony these parents must be going through searching for their kids," the mom-of-two wrote.

"I'm praying for everyone in Manchester. This is truly so senseless & heart breaking," she added.
Grande herself tweeted Monday that she was feeling "broken" after 22 people died and 59 others were injured at her concert.
British police identified Salman Abedi, a 22-year-old British citizen of Libyan descent, as the bomber Tuesday, but later confirmed they're investigating a "network" of people who may have aided in the attack.
