Reality television star Kristin Cavallari terminated a staff member for posting an "insensitive" Instagram caption on September 11.
On the anniversary of the World Trade Center terrorist attacks, the staff member posted a photo of Kristin Cavallari in a short black dress with a plunging neckline on her Instagram account. The caption read, "NYC for 24hrs. And what a time to be here…always remember."
Cavallari experienced a backlash from the post, with her Instagram followers criticizing it for being flippant about the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attacks. In apparent response, Cavallari changed the caption to read, "NYC for 24hrs."
According to a source close to Cavallari, the photograph was taken the day before and was supposed to be posted on September 10 with a different caption. The source claims that the staff member "took it upon herself to post it Wednesday with her own caption."
