During Monday’s season finale of DWTS, JoJo, 18, got a shoutout from Kim ahead of her final performance.
While appearing in a pre-recorded clip, Kim said: “You are honestly such an inspiration to so many people. Good luck and I love you!”
Shortly after the package aired, viewers rushed to Twitter to slam Kim’s cameo.
One person wrote: “Kim Kardashian endorsing Jojo Siwa was just grossly inappropriate.”
Another added: “Kim wishing Jojo well since when they friends? Ew.”
A third chimed in: “Not JoJo getting a shoutout from Kim Kardash.”
Alongside a gif of NeNe Leakes saying “Girl, bye,” an additional person wrote: “Kim Kardashian really?”
The backlash comes after Kim and her family were slammed as “tone deaf” following the Astroworld fiasco.
Shortly after the tragedy at the Astroworld Festival- which resulted in the death of 10 people and had hundreds of injuries- Kim was slammed for launching her Fendi x SKIMS collection.
Many fans were not happy that the mother of four decided to follow through with the launch after the tragic events that occurred during Travis Scott’s set at the festival.
Taking to the comments section of the post promoting the launch, one person wrote: “Please think about the 8 victims.”
Another lashed out: “How tone deaf is it to keep marketing your product after someone from your family is responsible for causing death & injury to a huge crowd of people!?”
Kim took to Instagram days after the stampede to share her condolences following the festival tragedy after days of silence from much of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
Travis, 30, is dating Kim’s younger sister Kylie Jenner, 24.
The couple share daughter Stormi, 3, while the Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum is pregnant with their second child.
The KKW Beauty founder, whose sister Kylie is expecting her second child with Travis, wrote: “Absolutely heartbroken for the lives who were lost and anyone who was hurt at Astroworld.
“Just like all of you, our family is in shock by the tragedy, we are keeping all of the victims, families and loved ones impacted in our prayers for healing – as well as Travis who we know cares so much about his fans and is truly devastated.”
Officials in Texas said the crowd began to “compress towards the front of the stage” at around 9:15pm on Friday, sparking panic.
KIM’S NEW ROMANCE
As she continues to receive backlash for how she chose to handle the controversy, Kim seems to be distracting herself with new boyfriend Pete Davidson, 28.
After hitting it off during the KUWTK star’s hosting debut on Saturday Night Live, the pair now seem inseparable.
The couple confirmed their romance earlier this week when they were photographed holding hands in public after the two ventured to Palm Springs to celebrate Pete’s birthday.
DWTS’ NEW WINNER
While JoJo had the support of Kim, the Dance Moms alum didn’t end up winning the Mirrorball trophy on Monday night.
Instead, Iman Shumpert made history when he became the first NBA player to not only make it to the finale but also to win DWTS.
JoJo placed in second after scoring perfect numbers throughout the season.
The teen pop star also made history as the first same-sex pairing along with partner Jenna Johnson.
Meanwhile, Peloton guru Cody Rigsby got third place and The Talk’s Amanda Kloots came in fourth.
