The wealthy parents have been slammed for "pretending to be middle class" by gifting their daughter Stormi a yellow school bus.
On Tuesday (Aug 24) the 24-year-old beauty mogul shared a series of photos of her daughter, Stormi, standing next to a school bus.
She shared another of the three-year-old walking down the empty aisles on her Instagram story.
“All Stormi has been talking about is riding a big yellow bus. Daddy surprised her,” Kylie wrote on Instagram on a photo of Stormi hugging the side of the bus.
While Stormi seemed pleased with the gift, many fans found the gift strange. Some fans sympathised with Stormi not having a "normal" childhood and wanting to have one.
Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: “Kylie and Travis buying Stormi a yellow school bus because all she wanted to do was be a normal kid and ride on one is the most dystopian, surreal, depressing, and funny thing I’ve ever seen".
Another user added: “Stormi got gifted a school bus??? Rich people will do the most to try and seem normal.”
Fans also claimed the purchase could have been better off with someone or a company who is in need of the yellow school bus, who could make real use out of it.
Others claimed the parents were “pretending to be middle-class” with the gift, which proved how “out of touch” Kylie and Travis are with reality.
“Stormi got to play make-believe poor today,” one fan joking wrote on the social media platform, while another user added: “Stormi is so rich her dad Travis surprised her with a yellow school bus so she can act middle class for the day.”
Adding to the criticism, another fan wrote: “Rich people are literally so far from reality they bought a school bus for Stormi to sit on.”

Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner’s kid was talking about riding on a big yellow bus, so Travis bought her a school bus instead of you know — just sending her to public school. I can’t decide whether that’s baller or completely out of touch. 🤔 🤔— ethan (@ethanzebediah) August 25, 2021
I think labeling riding a school bus as a "poor people" thing in the context of Kylie Jenner's daughter Stormi wanting to ride one is incredibly disrespectful to kids who ride school busses. It's a neutral life experience and doesn't need to be laughed at as a mark of poverty.— Meghan Robins (@megbrobins) August 25, 2021
Kylie Jenner being so out of touch with the poors that she proudly posts pics of her buying a school bus for Stormi to walk around in as if it’s a relic from the past lmao— possum queen (@possumqween) August 26, 2021
