You may find this difficult to believe, but the Kardashians may not always be the most sensitive human beings.

Even more unbelievable, they aren't always totally aware of cameras looking their way.

During a tribute at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards to Michael Brown, the unarmed teen who was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., there appeared to be only three people not paying attention. They seemed to be texting or doing something on their phones, according to the New York Daily News.

Guess who?

Yep. Kim Kardashian and her younger sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, were all playing with their phones during a moment of silence called for from the stage by rapper Common.

As you can imagine, the Internet noticed. Because the Internet knows all.

"An extra-special (expletive) you to the kardashian-jenner girls for texting during a moment of silence for ferguson," wrote user @AmandaRising.

"I'm sorry that the moment of silence for Ferguson was interrupting the Kardashian's social life. What complete a-holes," @EronisN wrote.

The Daily news reported that some joked the sisters had to get on Google to figure out what Ferguson was. Which, actually, may be exactly what happened.

"Kim kardashian in there like, 'Whose Ferguson?'" a user under the handle @Octobersvry0wn wrote.

None of the Kardashian-Jenner girls responded to the criticism on their Twitter accounts by Monday morning, the news reported.

Police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed 18-year-old Brown on Aug. 9 in Ferguson. Protests have rocked the town since.
