Followers of Kylie Jenner have taken to Twitter to slam the beauty mogul for vacationing in Utah despite the increase in the number of coronavirus cases.
Jenner shared photos of her posing in a slot canyon, which is a rare land formation in Utah and Arizona deserts. Many of these slot canyons are usually found on the borders of the Navajo Nation Reservations, which is currently closed due to coronavirus outbreaks.
It is unclear which slot canyons Jenner was posing in but based on photos of the luxurious Amingiri Hotel in Canyon Point located near Navajo Nation, fans deduced it might be the Antelope Canyon, located within the Navajo territory.
Many social media users criticized Jenner for apparently flouting lockdown regulations and putting the Navajo people at risk. “Are we going to ignore the fact that Navajo Nation Parks are closed, and Kylie Jenner is clearly in Antelope Canyon?” a user voiced out on Twitter.
“Did you donate anything to help the Navajo nation and tribes land you’re on while potentially exposing them? No,” another angry fan tweeted.
While some of her fans argued that Jenner might have taken photos at a lesser-known canyon, critics fired back stating that her photoshoot might encourage others to vacation on Navajo as well, risking many others.

White privileged at its finest.@KylieJenner gets to do a photoshoot on Navajo land BUT Navajos closed those sites due to COVID and OUR people are on lockdowns. Did you donate anything to help the Navajo nation and tribes land you’re on while potentially exposing them? No. https://t.co/zYyjpsTZYA— Tádídíín Queen✨👌🏽 (@traciej_) July 12, 2020
Kylie Jenner has a platform with millions of people. This will surely encourage those people also attempt to vacation on Navajo land. I would have this energy to other people, but it’s not the same as Martha from Idaho with 200 followers.— Jus (@justicesonny) July 13, 2020
