Kourtney Kardashian slammed for ‘mocking poor people’ during ‘tone deaf’ truck stop photoshoot with Travis Barker | The Sun
KOURTNEY Kardashian has been accused of "mocking poor people" with her photoshoot at a truck stop with Travis Barker.
The reality star, 43, and Blink-183 drummer, 46, posed in the snacks aisle of a convenience store in a series of snaps earlier this week.
The couple, who was dressed in baggy clothes, was seen eyeing up the chips, before trying on some of the high-vis vests that were on sale.
They then stood out in the parking lot together, which was filled with trucks.
Kourtney captioned the shoot: "Truck stop, huh?"
Critics accused her of making fun of "working class" people with the shoot.
One wrote on Reddit: "It's full mockery. 'Look babe, we’re just like poor people!'"
Another added: "We – the working class – are a sideshow to them. So tone-deaf."
A third posted: "Cosplaying as commoners has proven to be extremely effective PR!"
Kourtney faced similar backlash last week when she posted a picture to her Instagram Stories of a makeshift dinner table in an overgrown backyard.

The post shows a ping pong table that is set as a dinner table for 10 people with plastic backyard chairs and wooden stools.
The shrubs surrounding the table are overgrown with weeds.
The post came from the account "SomewhereIWouldLikeToLive," which shows a variety of dinner table settings.
One fan wrote on a social media thread: "I live in rural Mexico and we do that during parties, but its bcs we don’t have more space, not by choice lmaooo. What is Kourtney even thinking."
"She wouldn’t last 5 seconds in that person’s 15x15ft. backyard sitting on dirty lawn chairs eating off of those cheap *** plastic plates," said another.
Kourtney has an estimated net worth of $65million, with a reported yearly salary of $10million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
She lives in a $9million mansion in Calabasas, Los Angeles.
Travis has a rumored net worth of $50million and even bought his girl a ring that is said to be worth $1million.
In May, Kourtney and Travis married for the third time in an over-the-top $2million wedding weekend in Portofino, Italy.
They made the most of their destination wedding, renting out an entire 16th century castle at the seaside town.
Castello Brown is a historic site located on the coast and was used in military defence since the Romans were in charge.
Just renting the lot cost more that $5,000 U.S. Having a wedding on castle grounds costs and addition $2,600.
Basic catering is another grand, while partying past midnight is another $250 per hour.
Adding in catering and food options, not to mention entertainment, including a special performance from legendary Italian singer Andrea Boceli, the wedding is said to have cost well over $2million.
The lovers also went all out when exchanging their wedding bands.
"It looks like they have chosen matching bands," Neil Dutta, Managing Director of Angelic Diamonds confirmed to The Sun. "The perfect choice for the couple as it reflects how they have matched with one another throughout their relationship."
Kourtney now wears two rings, Neil said, explaining: "Her original engagement ring, which is a 12-carat elongated oval diamond set on a platinum band worth $1 million, and a new wedding ring which is a 3mm claw set platinum eternity band worth 1.40 carats, valued at $12,500.”
As for Travis, Neil adds: “Travis’ wedding band matches his new wife Kourtney’s, however his is slightly bigger with 2 carats set in a 4mm platinum eternity band, worth $17,500.
In the days leading up to the ceremony, Kourtney and Travis enjoyed the spoiled life onboard a luxurious superyacht, owned by their fashion designer pals Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, and said to cost more than $14 million.
The yacht, nicknamed "Regina d'Italia," or "Queen of Italy" in English, is an opulent ship that features gold everywhere, marble floors and custom door handles shaped like outstretched hands.
Even the bathrooms feature pure gold taps studded with sparkling rubies and sapphires.
The ship can accommodate up to 12 guests and 16 crew members, with each suite named after an exotic animal.
IDolce & Gabbana sponsored much of the wedding for the couple, including providing clothes and accessories for the bride and groom and the guests.
