Kim Kardashian West has been slammed for her tribute to Ariana Grande and the victims of the Manchester terror attack on Monday after she tweeted a picture of herself in a nightclub.

The mum-of-two’s message came from the heart, was sweet and personal.

She wrote on Instagram: “I’m praying for everyone in Manchester.“This is truly so senseless & heart breaking. I can’t imagine the fear and agony these parents must be going through searching for their kids.“Concerts are supposed to be a place where u can let loose and have fun. It’s so scary to not feel safe in this world. My heart goes out to @arianagrande I love you”.

But the image she posted alongside the message caused serious offence.

In the image, Kim can be seen grinning as Ariana stands nearby clapping, while Kim’s half-sister Kendall is in shot cheering as the crowd buzzes around them.

One of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s followers wrote beneath the snap: “Why does she need a picture of Ariana & herself.

“To be honest this tragedy is not about either one of them, people lost their lives at some point it’s just tacky to impose yourself into situations #BadDecision sorry this has nothing to do with you Kim, stay out of it.”

Another added: “Why do you put this picture of you partying with Ariana Grande @kimkardashian So pathetic and sad!”

Another said: “You shouldn’t post a pic laughing and then caption it with truly sad words.”

While another agreed, writing: “It is a literal tragedy and we are all praying but seriously Kim you are just posting a pic of yourself with Ariana barely in it and all faces are happy af and this is how you express your sadness? So sorry for you.”

A fellow follower added: “You shouldn’t post a pic laughing and then caption it with truly sad words.”

Back in London, the Manchester suicide bomber has been named as Salman Abedi and prime minister Theresa May has raised threat warning to ‘critical’, the highest level. Georgina Callander, pictured two years ago with Ariana Grande above, and, right, eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos, were among the 22 concert-goers who died.
