Kristin Cavallari called out for 'super insensitive' 9/11 post, fires social media staffer
Kristin Cavallari has reportedly fired one of her social media staffers after sharing a “super insensitive” post remembering 9/11.
On the 18th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, many stars took to social media using the #NeverForget hashtag to pay tribute to the lives that were lost that day, posting American flags, photos of the World Trade Center and more.
On the “Very Cavallari” star’s page, however, her followers were surprised to see a photo of the reality star, 32, wearing a sexy, plunging mini-dress on the streets of New York City with the caption, “NYC for 24hrs. And what a time to be here..always remember.”
Users to quick to call Cavallari out in the comments: “Wrong picture for the sentiment in the post,” one person wrote, while others called it in “poor taste” and “super insensitive.”
“I love you and think that you are generally spot on in the things that you choose to present, but this is just disrespectful and undermining to the magnitude of the events that occurred on that horrific day,” another follower commented.
