Kim Kardashian, master of the sexy selfies, is back at it again. And people aren't impressed.

On Thursday, following the deadly police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, the reality TV star and mother of two took to Instagram to share yet another photo of herself wearing minimal clothing.

"Pre photo shoot fittings," she captioned the photo.

Of course, Kardashian looks amazing in the photo, but with everything that's going on in the nation, her timing was not so great.

Commenters were quick to call out the reality TV star for posting the pic, telling her she should be using her platform and celebrity power to bring attention to the issue of police brutality and the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

"How about speaking on something relevant like #altonsterling?? Your voice could be influential in getting the non Blacks to actually participate in his movement," one commenter wrote.

"@kimkardashian are you aware of the killings of black men that have been happening? Your husband and son are black. Are you concerned?" another asked.

Another online user called out Kardashian for appropriating black culture, saying, "I wish you cared about us black people as much as you emulate the black community."

Prior to sharing her photo, the reality star had responded to the news of the shootings by retweeting the following tweet by John Legend:

Other celebrities, including Janelle Monae, Beyoncé and Drake, have responded to the tragedies on social media.

The Huffington Post has reached out to a representative for Kardashian for comment and will update this post accordingly.
