Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are under fire for having a photo shoot at a truck stop store.
In the seven-photo series, Kourtney and Travis can be seen browsing the junk food aisle and examining other products for sale — including friendship bracelets.
Kourtney Kardashian And Travis Barker Under Fire For Having Photo Shoot At A Truck Stop
In one photo, Kourtney is donning a high-vis jacket into a bandana, and another of the pics shows both Travis and Kourtney taking pictures of the moon, with lines of parked trucks in the parking lot.
“Truck stop, huh?” Kourtney captioned the post, also tagging photographer Clemente Ruiz, who’d taken the pictures.
And while the photos certainly had an aesthetic, they were met with fans and followers accusing the couple of cosplaying as the working class in the photo shoot. Many believed it to be disrespectful to actual truckers and truck stop workers.
“This is where my father has to sleep in the back of his semi 6 nights a week and they’re treating it like a zoo taking pictures of the trucks,” one person wrote on a Reddit forum. “Sorry but this makes me angry.”
“Imagine working at that truck stop and seeing these two come in for a full on photo shoot,” a second added. Another replied: “In hour 8 of your soul-sucking 14-hour shift, listening to Kourtney say that this place is like literally so cute.”
“We- the working class- are a sideshow to them,” one user wrote. Another criticism read, “It kills me how they legit disrespect us so much by doing what [they] feel non-celebrities do every day and take pics to show how normal they can be.”
“‘Look babe, we’re just like poor people!’” another user mocked. Someone else wrote: “Rich people cosplaying regular people will never not be funny to me ????”
Currently, Kourtney is on the road with Travis while he tours the country, and while the photos received a negative reaction from the star’s wider following, fellow performer Avril Lavigne commented: “Yes gurl. We live for them truck stops on the road. ????????”
The timing of the post also caused controversy at the time, as it came just after she was exposed for taking super-short flights in her $72.8 million private jet.
The billionaire’s followers didn’t buy that the shopping trip was authentic, and many believed she had seemingly shut down the store for a private experience as it appeared to be completely empty in her video.
