Reality TV actress and entrepreneur Kylie Jenner (26) deleted an Instagram post within an hour on her Instagram account with around 399 million followers. This is reported by "Page Six", the gossip site of the "New York Post", among others. In an Instagram Story on Saturday, Jenner shared a post from the account “StandWithUs” after the Hamas attack on Israel. “Now and forever we stand with the people of Israel,” says one graphic, which uses a photo of the Israeli flag as a background.
According to Page Six, Jenner received so much backlash after sharing the post that she was apparently forced to remove her post from her page. She didn't give a direct reason for her action, but pictures with Palestinian flags are said to have piled up in the comments section. In addition, users are said to have asked people to stop following the entrepreneur on Instagram.
After the post was deleted, the discussion was said to have continued on X and Instagram. "Kylie Jenner has no idea what's going on between Israel and Palestine," wrote one user, adding: "Right now, celebrities should only be condemning the war crimes being committed by both sides."
Another person commented on One user also added: "The fact that Kylie Jenner supports Israel while her friend Bella Hadid is Palestinian is crazy." The model Bella Hadid (27) is the daughter of a Jordanian-American real estate dealer of Palestinian descent.
