People Magazine Accused Of Insensitivity For Kim Kardashian Bahamas Vacation Story

“I find this article posted at an incredibly inappropriate time,” wrote one person on Twitter.

People magazine is facing criticism after an article about the bathing suit Kim Kardashian wore during a recent vacation in the Bahamas as the archipelago was being battered by Hurricane Dorian.

The article published on People’s website Monday ― headlined “Kim Kardashian Flaunts Her 24-Inch Waist In A Sexy Metallic One Piece On Bahamas Vacation” ― showcased photos the reality television personality shared to Instagram over the weekend:

The story focused on Kardashian’s getaway in early August and made no mention of the Category 4 hurricane, which has killed at least five people in the Abaco Islands.

The magazine was harshly criticized by many on Twitter:

People did not respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.

The story appeared to have been updated later, however, as its link now clicks through to an article titled “Kim Kardashian Shares Bikini Photo from Her Bahamas Vacation Ahead of Deadly Hurricane.”

There is no explanation for the alteration and the URL keywords remain as “kim-kardashian-flaunt-waist-sexy-swimsuit-bahamas.”
