After images surfaced of Stormi walking the red carpet in a small off-the-shoulder dress, fans couldn't help but take to social media to share their thoughts on the matter.

One user wrote: "Dress is way too much for a toddler, Inappropriate for a child her age".

Another person commented: "She’s literally a child I cannot. That is not a kids dress. She's super cute, but that dress is disturbing to see on a little kid".

A third person added: "Sorry this is inappropriate for a child".

Not only did the face criticism for bringing their child to the award show, but also for Travis taking to the stage to perform.

One Twitter user added: "If I had a loved one killed in that Astroworld tragedy that headline would enrage me. Stop spotlighting those people".

The sold-out festival, which had more than 50,000 in attendance, saw people without tickets jumping fences and turn styles and avoiding metal detectors resulted in several deaths.

This lead to audiences compressing towards the front of the stage, causing shortness of breath, cardiac arrest and several injuries.

Last week, Shanazia Williamson used Scott for 'wrongful death' after she claimed she suffered a miscarriage during the crowd surge, adding that she was trampled and crushed at the festival'.
