Outrage and ridicule over Kendall's Jenner’s "raw story"
Following the drama that Kendall Jenner’s “tone deaf” Pepsi caused in 2017, you’d think she’d be more careful how she handled her endorsements. Apparently not.
It all started last week when Kris Jenner had promised Kendall would share a 'raw story' to her Twitter account on Sunday night in order help her young followers. A video clip teaser was released on social media, and the whole ordeal seemed quite serious.
Ahead of the big video reveal, mum Kris ramped up interest as she publicly praised Kendall for being “so brave and vulnerable”.
“Seeing you share your most raw story in order to make a positive impact for so many people and help foster a positive dialogue is a testament to the incredible woman you've become.
“Make sure to watch Kendall's Twitter on Sunday night to find out what I'm talking about and be prepared to be moved."
In an attempt to up the drama, she added a variety of hashtags: '#bethechange #shareyourstory #changetheconversation #proudmom #finallyasolution #authenticity #mydaughterinspiresme #getready.'
Fans speculated what it could be and if she was okay. Turns out, she’s fine. In fact, she’s more than fine. Kendall has simply been unveiled as the new spokesperson for spot cream Proactiv, which means she raking in millions for yet another deal.
Talking about her acne troubles, Kendall appears in a TV advert recalling how she was attacked by online trolls for her bad skin, while promoting the skincare line.
But fans were NOT buying it. Kris was instantly slammed over the family's shameless self-promotion. One fan wrote: “You're joking me. This is the 'big announcement'? This is a pathetic cry for attention. @KrisJenner.”
Another added: “Women are coming forward every day about being victims to assault, abuse etc and Kendall Jenner is gonna hype up and announce her problem with acne.”
“Kris Jenner should be ashamed of herself for hyping this nonsense in the manner she did! This whole family just truly disgusting! Real life issues out there like coming out or crippling disorders that keep you from leaving the house & she comes up with those ridiculous hashtags,” read another tweet.
Perhaps someone should tell Kendall that 50 percent of teens suffer from acne, but only an estimated 0.0000001 percent of them get paid millions of dollars to talk about it.
