At the time Jenner said she felt “really bad” for offending anyone with the advert. However, many others pointed to a controversial advert the model fronted for Pepsi in 2017 that was ultimately pulled for “missing the mark”. Some people replied by sympathising with Jenner that the post was clearly fake and she had been unfairly portrayed. A Twitter user with the handle @monmon_jones replied atf salary to the tweet with the original image of Jenner. Based on Jenner’s outfit and the car behind her, it appeared to have been taken in November when the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star spent a day racing cars with friends including Tyler, the Creator. Bernice King, the daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, was among those who drew the connection to past protests.
Kendall Jenner has said that a photograph circulating on social media of her holding a “Black Lives Matter“ placard is fake. Jenner last week shared a message of support for the Black Lives Matter movement and the police-brutality protests sparked by George Floyd’s killing on May 25. Kendall Jenner denied involvement in what she called a “photoshopped” version of an old picture of her that stirred controversy online. A photo of Kendall holding a Photoshopped Black Lives Matter poster was spreading on Facebook. “I’ve been doing a lot of thinking these past few days and my heart has been so heavy,” Kendall’s post began. Kendall came out and debunked all rumours of her faking the image and denied that she edited the photo and posted it online, saying someone else did it.
“Kendall Jenner photoshopping a sign in her hands is a pretty good indication of how seriously people should take celebrity opinions,” wrote another. “Stop photoshopping signs into your pictures and actually use your platform to do some good,” wrote one person. However, eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice that the placard in her hands didn’t appear in the reflection behind her, leading to accusations that she’d photoshopped the image before posting it. I DID NOT post this,” she wrote on her Twitter account along with the picture in question. A photograph of Kendall Jenner, one of the youngest sisters of reality TV star Kim Kardashian, went viral, where she is seen wearing an all-black ensemble paired with a black mask while holding a Black Lives Matter sign. Kendall Jennerhas flat out denied she posted an obviously photoshopped image of herself holding up a poster with the words “Black Lives Matter” on it.
The protesters cheer after she hands a can of Pepsi to a police officer, who takes a sip and smiles at his colleague. Jenner, a high-profile member of the celebrity Kardashian family, is shown in the advert stepping away from a modelling shoot to join a crowd of young, diverse protesters. His tweet prompted a flurry of criticism towards the model, with some people, who thought Jenner had indeed shared this image herself, labelling the misstep “embarrassing“. Edwards’ picture was a screenshot of a Facebook post from a page called 20K, but he didn’t take the screenshot himself, telling Insider that he saw the screenshot circulating on Facebook and Reddit.
First, an old Pepsi advert from 2017 resurfaced and caused huge controversy. The American model, Internet personality and Kardashian sister has been the subject of two internet scandals this week as the Black Lives Matter campaigns continue on social media. However, Jenner responded to the backlash and clarified that the image had not come from her.
