While everyone else was mourning the tragic incident that occurred in Oklahoma, Kim Kardashian took to her Twitter to promote the new Kardashian self-tanning product. Kim Kardashian is being slammed for what many are saying is her insensitivity to the victims of the tragic tornado in Oklahoma.

Last night, when everyone else was worried about the victims and possibly even their friends and family who were affected, Kim took to her Twitter to promote the new Kardashian self-tanning product.

"Love that I can gradually build the perfect bronzed glow I want with #KardashianSunKissedTan Extender w/ Bronzers!" she wrote.

Immediately, fans jumped on the poorly-timed self-promotion, saying that she was heartless. Motley Crew's Nikki Sixx was so angered by Kim's shameless plug, he responded to her with a message saying, "Pick your priority or pick your poison. Pretty embarrassing screen shot Kim. Isn't your 15 minutes up..."

Kim isn't the only one who has taken to Twitter to promote themselves in the midst of a crisis. Hours after the Boston marathon bombing, her mom Kris Jenner tweeted about her upcoming appearance where she would be sharing her favorite fashion looks on QVC.

To be fair, however, Kim usually does post at least once after every tragedy or sad event to express that her heart is heavy and say that she's sending thoughts and prayers to victims, when it is appropriate, and she did later post an Instagram photo that said "praying for Oklahoma."

Do you think that Kim has an obligation to adjust her tweets accordingly after a tragedy?
