Keep your eyes on the road, Kylie Jenner! The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is in hot water with fans after she posted a video to social media while she was driving.

Kylie Jenner has received backlash in the past for driving and Snapchatting, but apparently, she hasn’t learned her lesson. She recently posted a new video of herself driving on the highway while jamming out to music, and fans weren’t happy about it.

A number of people took to Reddit and shaded Kylie for her dangerous decision. “Things like this really show how out of touch she is with reality. Someone with her fame posting this is…just so unbelievably stupid,” one fuming fan said.

“Also she has a very personal experience with vehicular accidents, her father killed someone while driving,” another fan pointed out. “But I guess it’s worth it for the Gram.” This person was referring to the 2015 incident when Caitlyn Jenner got into a car crash which left one person dead. The I Am Cait alum ultimately avoided vehicular manslaughter charges.

Though it wasn’t reported that Caitlyn was using her phone at the time of the car accident, people obviously still don’t believe posting a video to Instagram or Snapchat is worth the risk. Plus, why would Kylie openly admit to such behavior? Besides it being unsafe, it’s also teaching her followers that this is okay, when it certainly isn’t.

Some fans said they weren’t surprised by Kylie’s actions in the least. One wrote:

"Is it shocking?! This family doesn’t care about anyone but themselves! I mean they are all traveling while we are still dealing with Covid! All while telling the public not to and to stay clear of their friends and family!"

As Showbiz Cheat Sheet reports, Kylie Jenner faced a similar situation back in February when she hit the road and taped herself listening to a song by Pop Smoke. At the time, fans sent major shade her way for putting other drivers on the road in danger for a social media clip.

Also in 2017, she shared a similar video. You can see the post below.

Here’s to hoping Kylie Jenner adopts safer driving habits moving forward!
