You would think that Kylie Jenner would have learned an important lesson about Bruce Jenner’s fatal car crash but unfortunately she hasn’t. The 17-year-old is receiving backlash not only for “Instagramming” while driving, but for also joking about possibly dying in a car crash.
Jenner made her fans angry this week when she posted a shot of her driving. Obviously, the underage teen took the photo while driving on the busy highway of Calabasas. She even had the time to add the name Calabasas to her photo. Jenner shared the photo that was without a caption at the time. Maybe she was too busy driving to think of one.
Sugarscope noted that the young reality star was driving on the busiest road in California. The freeway in Los Angeles is filled with so many fast cars and lanes that it’s easy to get into a car accident. The news source also noted that Kylie didn’t even have her hands at 10 and 2, as she should have. She was more concerned about showing off her Cartier bracelet, like she always does in her Instagram photos.
This shocking and dangerous photo is not the only thing that’s raising eyebrows. Jenner also included the message: “Born & Raised … & I’ll probably die here,” followed with an angry-faced emoji. The Hollywood Life noted that Jenner added the inappropriate caption to her Instagram photo, which was later removed. But that hasn’t stopped fans from attacking the teen for taking the photo in the first place.
This isn’t the first time that Kylie has been caught Instagramming while driving. She’s been seen taking photos and shot videos while in the driver’s seat. She’s also shot several “hilarious” Vine videos while driving. It just hasn’t caught the media’s attention like it has on Tuesday afternoon. Not to mention, Kylie has already been in two car crashes for being a “negligent driver.” It’s unclear whether or not she was taking photos or videos during the time of the accidents.
This also comes on the heels of the news that father Bruce Jenner was slapped with a wrongful death lawsuit for the fatal car crash that happened nearly three months ago. A lawsuit has been filed against the former Olympian for the accident that killed 69-year-old widow Kim Howe. Jenner cannot comment about the crash in interviews, since he’s currently being investigated for being negligent driving, according to a TMZ report. The youngest Jenner sister is also being sued for an accident she caused a few weeks after she received her driver’s license.
What are your thoughts on Kylie Jenner’s distracted driving? Do you think the teen will ever learn the consequences about her reckless driving?
