Another day, another Kardashian Kontroversy. The latest to hit the news this time is one that revolves around supermodel Kendall Jenner. The 23-year-old tried to fool her fans – or so they think she did – and failed completely. Not only did fans call her out but they also right out refused to try what she was promoting.
Jenner took to social media to share an image of herself wrapped in towels after a bath, looking fresh-faced and beautiful as ever. The caption of her shared post mentioned her Proactiv ambassador status and read, “on film, no makeup, no filters. Feeling super confident in my skin. I’ve been consistent with my routine – every morning, every night. #proactiv_ambassador” Clearly though, the words she typed out are not the truth.
Fans are sure she did use a filter for the photo and that she even is wearing some makeup in it, no matter how minimal. “Sure looks like you used no filters lol,” said one fan sarcastically. Another echoed, “There’s a filter.” Yet another person wrote, “No filters? JOKE.” There were also fans who were plain disappointed that Kendall was still working with Proactiv.
One commented, “Girl, you dont use no proactiv! Stop it.” Another followed, “omg girl ur still doing this Proactive thing? yikes.” The backlash that Kendall has been facing surrounding her ‘paid partnership’ with Proactiv started the day she announced that the secret behind her clear skin was this $40 product.
People immediately started negatively reacting with many pointing out how a dermatologist had helped her get clear skin as per what her sister Kylie had told once. And this very skin specialist, Christie Kidd, revealed that she recommended Jenner her very own products which aren’t available anywhere outside of Beverly Hills. To add to this whole thing, Kendall had herself admitted in 2015 that she had underwent Laser Genesis treatments that left had her acne-free.
Even more fans said that it was impossible that Jenner, who earns in millions, used an inexpensive product despite her family being known for getting costly cosmetic procedures. Botox, lip injections, cellulite removal, and several other surgeries are like a weekly routine for the Kar-Jenner clan. Yet, Kendall Jenner decided to collaborate with a brand and promote its products, a move that fans found unbelievable.
When she made the reveal earlier this year, the Victoria’s Secret model said, “I had exhausted all other options, I was desperate, and I was like ‘You know what? I’m gonna try Proactiv.’ It was such an awesome experience for me and really helped me.” Now that Kendall is still promoting Proactiv people are outright mad at her. But the reason this post angered her audience all the more was the caption that said she didn’t use any filters or makeup for the click.
“No filters guess I’m f****** blind then jeez kendall how could you lie to me like this? Not cool,” typed one fan. Let’s also not forget that apart from going under the knife, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality TV show stars are also known for heavily photoshopping their images before posting them online.
