The cameras are always rolling on the Kardashian girls… So you’d think they’d know to be on their best behaviour – particularly during the MTV VMAs?!

Alas, this was not the case during the ceremony yesterday.

Kim and sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner are copping a lot of backlash after they were caught on camera using their phones during a moment of silence.

The moment of silence was for the racial unrest going on in Ferguson, Missouri at the moment – a very sensitive issue, particularly in the US.

On stage to introduce the nominees for best hip-hop video, Common, the rapper, got up on stage and asked the audience to take a moment of silence.

Most people complied… But on the MTV live stream feed, Kim, Kylie and Kendall were busy with their noses in their phones.
