Kylie Jenner, Travis Scott Slammed after Pic of Them Seemingly Parked in Accessible Spot

Kylie Jenner and her boyfriend, Travis Scott, have come under fire after appearing to park in a disability accessible parking spot. They also earned backlash from a leading disability organization.

The Kylie Cosmetics mogul, 21, took to Instagram on Sunday with a photo of her and Scott sharing a tender moment beside their parked vehicle.

Jenner probably meant the post to celebrate their romance, but social media users noticed something else entirely. Behind the couple was a sign indicating a disability accessible parking spot, and it appeared they were parked right there.

“[You’re] preventing disabled people who need this parking space. Just because [you’re] famous doesn't mean you can park wherever you want to. Shame on you” ~@furmangirl1960

The Ruderman Family Foundation, a disability inclusion group, also condemned the controversial photo in a statement obtained by PEOPLE. “Accessible parking is meant for people with disabilities who need it,” said Jay Ruderman, the foundation’s president.

“As a role model to many, this is an opportunity for Kylie Jenner to use her celebrity status to help society understand why accessible parking is a basic right for people with disabilities to be included in daily life.”

Ruderman also tweeted at the couple, charging them to “raise awareness of the importance of inclusion of people with disabilities” and always keep “their needs in mind.”

He told Radar Online:

“Millions of people look to Jenner and Scott as influencers and role models. They can do a lot to advance the knowledge that accessible parking is meant for people with disabilities who need it to facilitate the ability to access our society.”

Meanwhile, Jenner has prior experience getting backlash from disability advocates. In 2015, the reality star posed in a wheelchair for an Interview Magazine cover, and it did not go down well with everyone.

“As someone in a wheelchair, [KylieJenner], [Interview Magazine], this is offensive,” one Twitter user complained. “My chair is not haute couture.”
