The Kardashian-Jenners are reality television stars who post a lot on social media, but they only put out what they want to show us. As far as their personal lives go, we only see what they want us to see, whether it’s a whole lot of gory details or mere glimpses.
The youngest Jenner, Kylie, keeps her real life relationship with Travis Scott pretty close to the vest. They have an adorable daughter and truly seem to be in love, and if you look through their social feeds, there really isn’t a ton of pics of them together. Which is how they like it; a lovely little family unit. No drama.
So when images (TMZ seems to have taken them down, but Reddit is forever) of ‘Travis’ kissing an unidentified woman surfaced earlier this week, fans were truly shook. All of a sudden the elaborate flower display took on a new tone. Was that Scott’s way of apologizing for screwing up? Was this another Tristan situation? Too soon!
But, nope! Travis has nothing to apologize for because he’s done nothing wrong.

The fact that Travis had to issue a response is annoying enough, but what’s worse is that it was all a stunt. YouTuber ChristianAdamG explained that the prank was proof we shouldn’t believe anything we see on the Internet. He even added a disclaimer to the reveal video, stating it “was NOT made to intentionally hurt Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner or any of the entire Kardashian family in ANY way shape or form. Travis Scott is NOT actually a cheater.” But the damage was done — and the family didn’t take it lightly.
Kim‘s perfectly manicured claws came out.
I hate that I am bringing attention to this but this is absolutely disgusting that you would find this funny to mess with Travis & Kylie who just started a family together. This is really damaging to relationships, families and is just so wrong! pic.twitter.com/KtodBpmiHR

And Khloe, who knows firsthand what it’s like being in an actual cheating scandal, backed her sister up.
People are absolutely disgusting! The mind games this would do to somebody… That is so completely not OK! This person should be so ashamed of themselves! What filth

Kylie put it best in her Instagram Stories, though, saying, “Idk if this is really a social experiment to some people but you’re messing with real people, real relationships, real family. I’m happy my relationship is strong because this is getting out of hand. The internet scares me sometimes for real.”
And, like the Kardashian-Jenners, no one thought this was funny.
Nothing was funny about this. I 100% support Travis and Kylie. I knew he would never cheat on her and adores his girls. Not here for breaking up a happy home.

It’s sad that people are willing to ruin a family just for clout and views. That’s honestly sad af

“Hey, remember when those guys made everyone think Justin Bieber eats burritos weird? Yeah, let’s do that but instead of a burrito we’re gonna try to ruin Travis Scott’s life.” https://t.co/o9Y0w1Ivik

This is so twisted. ChristianAdamG claims the “experiment” was inspired by that Justin Bieber burrito video but, come ON. That was completely harmless (except to burritos); this had potential to mess with people’s lives. Staging a Scott look-alike kissing on a woman that wasn’t Kylie while fake paps photographed them is a new level of low. They have a child, FFS.
Now, Kris, do your thing.
