Kylie Jenner is never far away from the headlines, whether that be for the good or bad in many people's eyes.

The Kylie Cosmetics founder is certainly known worldwide, boasting a whopping 400 million followers on Instagram.

As a result, many young people look up to the reality TV star, so she certainly has to be careful surrounding the content she posts to her social media channels.

However, a recent post, which was actually only up for a matter of minutes, has sparked debate online.

On the day (Saturday) of the Hamas' attack on Israel, Jenner posted a pro-Israel message to her Instagram stories which was deleted pretty swiftly.

Nonetheless, this is the internet after all, so many fans and pundits spotted the story despite it being available to view for a short time.

It has gained traction online, with everyone weighing in to offer their opinion.

The post in question was from the Instagram account @standwithus, which included the flag of Israel and the following caption: "Now and always, we stand with the people of Israel."

Many flocked to X (formerly known as Twitter) to provided their thoughts on the post, with some suggesting it is likely Jenner's team that removed the post for her.

Others, meanwhile, pointed out that while the post may have been swiftly deleted, it wasn't quick enough for them not to spot it.

"Too late we all saw that," one person on X penned.

While a second added: "Why did she think that was a good idea."

Meanwhile, another social media user suggested that the post was an act of 'performative activism', they wrote: "Girl, if that’s what you support. Then stand by it. Or was it just more performative activism? Don’t double back now that you’re getting backlash. Smh…"

While another had similar thoughts: "It's very obvious she doesn't even know what's happening. She. Just wants to join the trend."

And a third remarked: "Only for clicks and not knowing history in celeb world."

UNILAD has reached out to Jenner's representatives for comment.

The whole situation in Israel has caused a stir across the world, as Palestinian officials say that Israeli air strikes have killed at least 313 people in the Gaza Strip, with close to 2,000 wounded.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Israel says the country is "still at war ... still completing efforts to take full control of Israeli territory and communities from Hamas".
