While a few members of the Kar-Jenner clan praised the 21-year-old for her cute outfit, her caption didn't sit well with the majority of her fan base who accused her of being "rude" and "insensitive".
“200,000 people evacuated and 2 million people without power, but okay go ahead and flex??” an angry fan wrote in the comments section of her post. "It seems like celebrities are in their own world and they don't care about what's happening. Could you be more insensitive"
"I just don't understand why she would choose this caption??? These fires are taking place in her backyard! Her friends and fam are probably being evacuated as we speak," another added. "This is the most tone-deaf thing I've ever read."
"And the fires. Don't forget the fires," a different user chimed in, reminding Sofia of the severity of the crisis and the devastation it has already caused.
After being dragged online by thousands of fans, it appears the girlfriend of Scott Disick saw those comments and has since gone into damage control. Taking to her Instagram story, Sofia sent her well wishes, urging fans to "stay safe".
"Sending my love and prayers to everyone affected by the fires. Tonight's wind is going to be brutal. Please Stay safe."
Multiple news outlets reported that the fierce Santa Ana winds were detrimental to the Getty Fire which broke out and forced over 10,000 people to leave their homes.
As the blaze rapidly spread through a prestigious area in Southern California where dozens of celebrities live, stars like LeBron James, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kate Beckinsale, Kurt Sutter were forced to evacuate.
Her future sister-in-law Kylie also came under fire this week when she dressed her 20-month-old daughter in a replica of her Met Gala dress for Halloween. While most people, including myself and the mum-of-one, thought it was the most adorable thing they'd ever seen, a bunch of angry fans took exception to the identical custom Versace number, claiming it was just another example of the "vein" billionaire exploiting her daughter for fame and likes.
"Am I the only one who thinks this is abuse?" an Instagram user commented on a photo the makeup mogul shared to her social media account showing her little one donning the look.
"She doesn't look very happy not gonna lie feel like she's feeling tortured... there's a lot going on there and I don't think she feels comfortable," another added before branding the look "inappropriate".
While the angry comments rolled in quickly, it wasn't all bad. In fact, some of the world's biggest names said they loved the fit.
"Omg, I can't deal," her future sister-in-law Sofia Richie commented. "❤️," said Travis Scott, Kylie's ex-boyfriend and dad to Stormi.
"So cuuuute! 💞💞," famed designer Donatella Versace added.
