After a photo purporting to show Travis Scott cheating on Kylie Jenner was revealed to be nothing more than a fake, the first family of reality TV reacted with fury.
“Idk if this is really a social experiment to some people but you’re messing with real people, real relationships, real family,” Kylie wrote in a since-deleted post on her Instagram story. “I’m happy my relationship is strong because this is getting out of hand. The internet scares me sometimes for real.”
Before that, big sister Kim Kardashian ripped into the “prank,” calling it “absolutely disgusting.”
“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,” she tweeted. “This is really damaging to relationships, families and is just so wrong!”
Earlier this week, a photo that depicted a man who looked like Scott, 26, getting cozy with a woman other than Jenner, 21, went viral on social media.
The rapper was quick to deny its legitimacy, writing on Instagram, “S–t cap asss f–kkkk TMZ ain’t post this s–t. Trolls working hard today. I don’t be on no balcony wit no thots. That s–t lame. Try again u trollssss. Me and my wifey sturdy. Back to celebrateing !!!”
He later added, “Only got love for my wife. No time to be wasting. Try again.”
On Wednesday, Christian Adam uploaded a video to YouTube, titled “We Fooled the Internet w/ Fake Travis Scott Cheating Photo,” documenting the “prank.” He claimed his intention was to highlight the dangers of people taking the legitimacy of what they see online for granted, writing in the video description, “never believe anything you see on the internet :).”
Adam also attempted to distance himself from any possible negative fallout by including a disclaimer that read, “this video was NOT made to intentionally hurt Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner or the entire Kardashian family in ANY way shape or form).”
Scott himself commented on an excerpt of the video Adam posted to Instagram, simply commenting, “Shaking my f–king head.”
