    People Really Aren't Here For Kendall Jenner's Defence Of Her Comments About Other Models

    "It was intended to be entirely complimentary but unfortunately my words were twisted and taken out of context."

    In case you missed yesterday's edition of Drama With The Kardashian/Jenners, allow me to catch you up: Kendall Jenner, the second-youngest sister and successful model, made some comments that her peers in the fashion industry were pretty damn unhappy with.

    In a recent interview with LOVE magazine, Kendall said she was "selective" about the catwalk shows she chose to walk, and that she wouldn't do "like, 30 shows a season or whatever the fuck those girls do".

    The comments didn't go down well with Kendall's peers, several of whom posted on Instagram calling Kendall "lazy" and saying they were "fucking proud" of all the shows they walk.

    Yesterday, a representative for Kendall told BuzzFeed News that her comments had been taken out of context, and it wasn't actually what she meant.

    Mid-thought she realized the number of shows some models walk a season is closer to 80. The point was that it’s their path and "the more power to them." She admires their hard work and dedication. It’s an accomplishment.

    And now Kendall herself has weighed in on the drama. Taking to Twitter, she said she had been "misrepresented" in the interview and reiterated that her comments had been taken out of context.

    I was misrepresented in a recent interview over the wknd & it’s important to clarify the meaning. It was intended to be entirely complimentary but unfortunately, my words were twisted & taken out of context.I want to be clear. The respect that I have for my peers is immeasurable!

    She went on to say she admires her fellow models' "tireless commitment [and] work ethic", and said she was inspired by the people she has "had the good fortune to work alongside".

    I get to experience first hand their tireless commitment, their work ethic, the endless days, the lack of sleep, separation from family and friends, stress of traveling, the toll on physical and mental health, yet they still make it all look effortless and beautiful.

    I’m inspired by so many of these people i have had the good fortune to work alongside! There’s no way i could EVER hate on that ❤️ i want everyone to win. SLAY ALWAYS.

    She ended her string of tweets with a simple statement: "Cultivate kindness today and always."

    Cultivate kindness today and always.

    But many people in the replies weren't having it. One person said Kendall was "entitled", and that she hasn't had to work for her supermodel status, instead using her family's name and connections to get to where she is.

    @KendallJenner No, they clearly quoted you. This is what happens when you are entitled and your "supermodel" status is handed to you. You haven't worked for anything. You never would've made it if it wasnt for your Kardashian connections. #Truth #KendallJenner

    While others pointed out that she doesn't understand the hard work other models put into their careers, or that they have to put in that hard work in order to earn a living.

    @KendallJenner You definitely do experience that, but your experience is different. You’re able to take breaks and vacations or even stop working as you still have income from other projects and jobs. A lot of models don’t, so don’t trash them for doing 30+ shows a season

    @KendallJenner all the models are going through this. we didn't say you don't work, we said the other models work and even more than you, they're still less successful. You have some privilege, (good for you) just admit it.

    @KendallJenner You don't get to experience half of the shit those models had gone through, they had to go to the castings, they had to wait hours and if they were late a second were seen as if they weren't commited and got rejected. You with your money, fame and family name would never relate

    Some people even brought up Kendall's infamous Pepsi commercial and called her "tone deaf".

    @KendallJenner Like your tone deaf Pepsi commercial was taken out of context? DO BETTER. You’re too privileged, with all the access to information in the world, to be so utterly tone deaf and self unaware. Grow up. You and your whole entire vapid culture vulturing family.

    @KendallJenner Just like you were misrepresented in your Pepsi commercial.

    @KendallJenner This is the whole Pepsi thing all over again stop blaming companies for your mistakes. I bet if no one said anything she wouldn’t have said they misrepresented her bc this has been out for a while now and now she wants to say something bc she’s getting backlash

    While others called for her to simply say she was sorry.

    @KendallJenner right. why don’t you start by apologising to “to those girls”.

    @KendallJenner girl you didn't even say "sorry"

    However, some people defended Kendall, pointing out she suffers from anxiety, and said in the interview that she was selective about shows because she couldn't deal with an overwhelming schedule.

    Kendall said she was super selective bc of the anxiety it caused her from an overwhelming schedule. It didn’t have a condescending tone. Models- put on your big girl VS panties and don’t be so quick to throw the stones.

    I’m neutral on Kendall Jenner. Wouldn’t consider myself a fan, don’t have anything against her either. I understand ppl are upset w/ her words/her advantage bc of her name, but anxiety is NOT laziness, it’s paralyzing. It’s dangerous to confuse the two. Self care is important.

    And then people had thoughts about THAT.

    I understand how Kendall's anxiety can cause her to appear standoffish and cold and that can be crippling, but her recent comments came off as entitled and inconsiderate. She can still empathize.. much love to Kenny and every model working their ass off because they have to

    I guess it's just another day in the life of a Jenner.
