Note: never mess with the Kardashian/Jenner family.
In an attempt to “fool the internet”, YouTuber Christian Adam uploaded a 17-minute video which attempted to fool viewers into thinking Travis Scott was cheating on Kylie Jenner.
He captioned the video: “never believe anything you see on the internet :)”
As you can imagine, neither Kylie Jenner nor her family saw the funny side of the immature prank, and made sure to voice their opinions on how “out of hand” the internet can be…
“Idk if this is really a social experiment to some people but you’re messing with real people, real relationships, real family,” Kylie wrote 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.”
And she wasn’t the only one to address the prank. Kim Kardashian also had her say…
“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,” Kim wrote on Twitter, moments before Kylie Jenner addressed the issue.
“This is really damaging to relationships, families and is just so wrong!”
And not one to be left out, Khloe Kardashian also chimed in…
“People are absolutely disgusting! The mind games this would do to somebody… That is so completely not OK,” she Tweeted.
“This person should be so ashamed of themselves! What filth.”
We couldn’t agree more!
In a bid to defend his video, Christian Adam went into detail about his decision to do the prank, despite seemingly being very aware of the potential damage it could have caused…
“I decided to try this experiment,” Adam said into the camera.
“What I’m gonna do for this video is see if I can take one of those celebrities and fool the world.
“That photo that you see of Travis Scott allegedly cheating on his significant other Kylie Jenner was completely staged.
“The goal of this video is not to hurt anybody’s relationship, but it’s to see how gullible is the internet. The question is: do the internet even care about the truth sometimes?”
Turns out, the internet does care. As do the people whose lives have been turned upside down for the sake of a few extra views…
