Kylie Jenner has come under fire for posting and then deleting a photo on Instagram showing her support for Israel following a Hamas attack that killed hundreds.
Jenner, 26, shared the photo from the pro-Israel account @StandWithUs, which features the Israeli flag and reads, “Now and always, we stand with the people of Israel!”
The youngest Jenner deleted the Instagram Story post within an hour, following backlash from some of her 400 million Instagram followers.
“Don’t get involved in politics and say that u support i**ael. P@lestine has been suffering for ages,” slammed one person on the socialite’s most recent post.
“Are u even human if u are with zionists,” wondered a second person.
Several other people simply commented with the Palestine flag.
The Post reached out to Jenner for comment.
Instagram was not the only site where Jenner drew backlash. Hundreds of irate fans took to X (formerly Twitter) to express their outrage as well.
“Someone ask Kylie Jenner to point to Israel on the map,” declared one X user.
“It’s actually way worse that Kylie Jenner just deleted the Israel post,” reasoned another. “It shows a lack of knowledge and care, she just posted it to be talked about.”
Some users also speculated the post may have sparked tension between Jenner and supermodel Bella Hadid, 26, a longtime supporter of Palestinian rights. Hadid’s father, Mohamed, is Palestinian.
“Kylie Jenner supporting Israel when her friend Bella Hadid is Palestinian is crazy,” quipped one fan.
“Do these celebrities listen to each other when they talk,” spat another person. “Like when Bella Hadid talks about Palestine and being Palestinian does Kylie Jenner know what that means?”
Hamas militants fired thousands of rockets and sent dozens of fighters into Israeli towns near the Gaza Strip early Saturday morning — the worst attack on Israel for decades.
“We are at war,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said during a live television address declaring that “the enemy will pay an unprecedented price.”
