People are not happy with Kendall Jenner’s behavior. According to a report by TMZ, the model and her NBA player boyfriend were out for dinner in LA when at the restaurant her dog nipped a child. What did the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star do in response? She fled the scene. Such attitude only teaches people to be irresponsible.
Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons were having dinner at Beverly Glen Deli’s outdoor patio when her Dobermann Pinscher “nipped” the kid despite being on a harness. The injury was not serious but what made the entire incident incite Twitter backlash for Kendall was how she acted after it happened. The dog didn’t manage to tear skin and the restaurant staff brought ice for the child’s minor injury.
According to TMZ, the child’s mother went to “confront” the celebrity couple but “they’d already paid their bill and vanished.” The incident was then reported to LAPD and police forwarded it to Animal Control. However, since this is a member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan we are talking about, a lot more drama is involved here.

One person called Kendall “despicable” on Twitter referring to this incident. Jenner replied to the post saying, “Oof I’m sorry you feel that way. Hope to meet you one day to show you the real me, maybe I’ll tell you a little bit about the story too. God bless.” Others on Twitter are also unhappy with how the Victoria’s Secret model dealt with the situation.
So I hear Kendall Jenner’s dog bite a little toddler out in public and Kendall fled the scene ? That’s so not being a responsible dog owner.

One person tweeted, “So I hear Kendall Jenner’s dog bite a little toddler out in public and Kendall fled the scene? That’s so not being a responsible dog owner.” As pointed out by Teen Vogue, a fan commented on Kendall’s Instagram saying, “I’m sure this could be blown out of proportion BUT to prove the haters wrong and to prove this breed is so loving, which I know since I have one, please try making her an AKC Canine Good Citizen and get her obedience impeccable! It will save your dog from being ripped apart by the tabloids.”
Despite Kendall tweeting about this incident that reportedly happened on Sunday and despite the granddad of the girl who was nipped saying that the dog did get close and bite, sources close to the 22-year-old model are in denial. A source told People magazine that though Jenner’s Dobermann was “startled” it “did not bite anyone.”
The insider further added, “The police and emergency services did not come to the scene. Kendall didn’t leave until she knew the dog didn’t bite the little girl.” So, what exactly happened? Jenner took this new pet in earlier this year and has shown her new canine to fans several times on social media. In one picture that she shared on Instagram, Kendall can be seen reclining beside the dog.
The picture has been captioned, “Cute but she’ll rip your face off.” Jenner has captioned another picture of the dog with the words, “She’ll get yuh.” The grandfather of the child in question, Bob Cohen, is a celebrity divorce attorney who also happens to know the Kardashians. According to him, the dog “lunged without provocation and bit the little girl on the arm, breaking the skin and drawing a small amount of blood,” as per TMZ.
While Cohen has not filed a lawsuit against Kendell, he did call her “arrogant.” An eyewitness told E! News that the dig didn’t bite the child though it did scare her. The eyewitness also said that Kendall did hang around there and only went when she was told to. The matter is not even being investigated as per reports.
As usual, Kim Kardashian has also jumped in. The 37-year-old responded to the tweet calling her sister “despicable” with a tweet of her own. The KKW Beauty founder wrote, “Do u know Kendall? She’s the complete opposite &is the most generous, compassionate person I know!” Kim’s tweet also said that it was her sister’s anxiety that made her come off as rude.
Do u know Kendall? She’s the complete opposite &is the most generous,compassionate person I know! Her being standoffish is anxiety that paralyzes her which u take as rude! Only a despicable, entitled,unsympathetic,sadistic, uncharitable @self-absorbed human would write this tweet https://t.co/9Wwd9orILO

Kendall Jenner has also opened up about her anxiety in a latest interview with Love Magazine. The star told the outlet, “Last season I didn’t do any shows. Just ‘cause I was working in LA and I was like “Oof, I can’t right now – I’m gonna go crazy.’” Though she did admit that she lives an extraordinary life and wouldn’t trade it.
And while people are bombarding her Instagram with comments after this incident, in a previous interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the model had talked about how she didn’t even read comments because of how pressurizing they could be. “I like going on and seeing what people are up to, but I mostly follow stupid accounts with pictures of puppies and little baby animals and people saving animals,” she had said.
This is not the first time we’ve heard about Kendall Jenner’s struggle with anxiety. Her mother, Kris Jenner has also talked about it before. Let’s hope this dog issue is soon sorted out if it has not been already.
