During the moment of silence for Michael Brown at the VMA ceremony, the Kardashians were oblivious, fully focused on their digital devices.

Kim Kardashian and her younger sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, appeared genuinely uninterested in a moment of silence held in honor of murdered teen Michael Brown and the civil unrest occurring in Ferguson, Mo.

The famous sisters, 33, 18 and 17, respectively, were seen scanning their phones and chatting during the poignant moment led by rapper Common at Sunday night’s 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, reports BuzzFeed.

After making several remarks about the St. Louis suburb, Common asked everyone for their undivided attention. “I want us all to take a moment of silence for Michael Brown and for peace in this country and in the world,” he said.

The video camera then cut to the Kardashians who seemed to be more engaged in their own world. Twitter blew up in rage over their nonchalant actions.

Tweeters did not take kindly to their behavior.

      They certainly didn’t.

      Should check their timeline. Probably says “Having moment of silence for Michael Brown. #VMA #Ferguson #KeepUp”

        4 supercomputers were accessed just to create the algorithms to crop out Kim’s prodigious ass.

    And this is surprising? News flash, the Kardashians weren’t there to honor the memory of Michael Brown. No, they were there in pursuit of their own self interests, they were there to be seen….

    Why does anyone pay attention to what the First Family of American Morons does? Ever?

    This isn’t news. Now if the Kardashians DIDN’T do something disrespectful at a solemn event, I’d be surprised.

    Oh, ye of little empathy!
    For shame, ladies–have you no respect for the dead?

    But of course not…they’re Kardashians!
    They only thing that THEY respect is long, green, and folds to fit in their bill-folds!
    Other than that (to use the tag line from the Rodney Dangerfield song):

    May they be shown the same amount of respect when the Whole Wretched Kardashian Krewe themselves pass into the Void!
