On Sunday, Kylie Jenner did what Kylie Jenner does best, which is to say she (or her assistant) uploaded several pictures to Instagram featuring herself showing off her expensive clothes, body parts, cars, and boyfriend Travis Scott. But this time, something stuck out, and it wasn’t the fact that it looked like Kylie’s face had been replaced with a hyper-realistic MAC face chart. It was the disability accessible parking sign located behind their car.
Kylie and Travis’ impromptu photo shoot took place in an underground parking garage, but it’s the specific spot that has people upset. Here’s a better angle of the car in the spot, and I’ll let you be the judge as to whether you think Kylie is entitled enough to park in an accessible spot.

It looks like Kylie parked in a disability accessible spot. And according to California Vehicle Code 4461, parking in a disability accessible space can get you a civil fine of between $250 and $1000, or in more serious cases (like a misdemeanor crime), up to 6 months in county jail. It’s a good thing the police didn’t happen to drive by Kylie and Travis, or else…well, probably nothing would have happened. If nothing happened when her sisters did it or her sister’s ex boyfriend did it, then she’s probably safe too.
People says people slapped at Kylie and Travis for taking an accessible spot away from someone who actually needs it, with one user asking, “I guess celebrities can park wherever they want?” Disability inclusion group The Ruderman Family Foundation also had something to say about it. They told People:
“Accessible parking is meant for people with disabilities who need it. 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.”
People reached out to reps for Kylie and Travis, but they had no comment on the situation. Kylie probably doesn’t even know what the big deal is. After all, she did pose in a wheelchair once, and that practically makes her one of them, right? Or maybe Kylie didn’t even know it was a disability accessible spot. She probably just saw the sign and assumed it was the outline of a person with an unrealistically massive round butt and yelled, “Finally, a spot just for me!”
