There has been a massive fallout for Kylie Jenner after she posted a message of support for Israel.

Hamas militants launched a deadly attack on its enemy over the weekend and hundreds of people have been killed.

Fighters sprayed bullets on civilians and security officials after infiltrating parts of the country.

Israel's Iron Dome defence system has been working around the clock to shoot down any missile attacks.

The country has since embarked on a series of airstrikes on Gaza in retaliation, which has injured thousands and killed hundreds.

As the fighting broke out, Kylie Jenner was one of many celebrities who voiced her support for Israel.

She shared a post that 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."

However, the post on her Story didn't last very long and was swiftly deleted.

"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 hit out at Jenner for the lacklustre attempt at highlighting the issue.

"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…" they wrote.

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

A third added: "Only for clicks and not knowing history in celeb world."

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

Sadly for her, the reaction to her social media following has been fairly negative.

According to Social Blade, she's lost more than 230,000 followers on Instagram in the days since the post.

Don't shed any tears for the mass abandonment as Kylie still boasts a very strong 399.8 million followers.

It's a drop in the ocean for her.

It's hard to say whether people have left her account due to her standing in solidarity with Israel or if it's because she deleted the post.

Her last Instagram post has since been flooded with people saying 'free Palestine' while others calling on her to think twice before wading into a longstanding geopolitical issue.

"You won’t read this but; Educate yourself before publicly supporting a people. There is a very long history there," said one follower.
