Although it's unclear if Travis Scott had bought or just rented the school bus, people simply couldn't get over the fact that the celebrities thought doing this would allow their daughter to experience the "normal" life.
Over the years, Kylie Jenner has received a lot of flak for spending insane amounts of money on things as simple as her daughter's backpack. But in all honesty, strangers do not have the right to dictate how rich people should spend their money. That being said, there's going to be backlash if you're paying $12,000 for a 2-year-old's school backpack. If this sounds outrageous, then get this- Stormi Webster was attending homeschool and yes, those thousands of dollars were spent on a bag that she wore at her home. Then again, that's how the world works. If you had the money, I'm sure you would have done your best to give your child the absolute best.

Kylie Jenner and boyfriend Travis Scott are once again proving that they will stop at nothing when it comes to their little girl's happiness, even if it makes them seem totally out of touch with the real world. This time around, the Show Me artist surprised his 3-year-old daughter with her very own yellow school bus. "All Stormi has been talking about is riding a big yellow bus," wrote Kylie alongside a picture of her daughter touching the bus reports Page Six. "Daddy surprised her." In the next picture, the toddler can be seen walking through an empty school bus.

Although it's unclear if Scott had bought or just rented the school bus, people simply couldn't get over the fact that the celebrities thought doing this would allow their daughter to experience the "middle class" life, which was supposedly her dream experience. "Saw Kylie’s story about Travis 'surprising' Stormi with a yellow school bus so she can pretend to be middle class for the day and I damn near broke my ankle running to Twitter," wrote one on Twitter. "Stormi has been obsessed with the public school system (thanks, Dream), so her dad rented a big yellow school bus for the day. Next week her parents are renting out a school cafeteria so she can experience public school lunches or as I call it, something from Kris’ cookbook," shared another.
Kylie Jenner’s daughter says she wants to take the school bus like the other kids, so Kylie and Travis deadass buy an entire school bus just for her to ride in 😪 I literally can’t even with them— Kyla Zhao (@kylazingaround) August 25, 2021
"Rich people are literally so far from reality they bought a school bus for Stormi to sit on," a third chimed in. Another couldn't believe that Scott "paid an absurd amount of money to rent this raggedy public school bus for Stormi" where the many childhood memories were made "for free." There were others who were concerned about the toll that Stormi's lifestyle might take on her when she grows up. "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," expressed one.

While another quipped, "I feel like Travis buying Stormi a school bus so she can role-play being a normal kid is going to be an event she‘ll have to unpack in therapy one day." But there seemed to be one person who defended the parents writing, "Parents bashing Kylie for getting Stormi a bus is so weird to me. The joy you feel from seeing your child excited is priceless. The fact that it’s a school bus? She’s born into wealth, she’ll never ride one. My bus memories are hilarious, I’m not mad."
