“Speechless and disgusted!!” Kardashian, 37, tweeted Saturday, a day after Rittenhouse was found not guilty in the shooting deaths of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and the wounding of Gaige Grosskreutz.

The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star was previously called “tone-deaf” for posting thirst traps to Instagram following the catastrophic Astroworld festival, which left 10 people dead during a performance by Travis Scott in Houston.
The 30-year-old rapper has been under heavy scrutiny over Astroworld, which was attended by his girlfriend, Kardashian’s half-sister Kylie Jenner, 24, and their 3-year-old daughter, Stormi.
After the tragedy, Jenner and her sisters Kim Kardashian West and Kendall Jenner issued statements about the loss of life – but Khloé remained silent.
In her tweet Saturday, Khloé did not specify what she was referring to, but users took her comment to be about Rittenhouse’s acquittal.
“What are u referring to? The innocent lives that were lost at Travis’s concert, or….????” user Chaotic Beauty wrote.
