One of the world’s highest paid model Kendall Jenner probably knows how to deal with a severe backlash come under fire for her alleged cultural insensitivity.
High-profile American socialite, and daughter of California governor candidate Caitlyn Jenner, Kendall Jenner, has been overpowered to block the comment section under one of her Instagram posts. The reason: she’s being sued of cultural benefit (again) for her “chic migrant worker” looks in an advert for her recently launched Tequila brand.
Through a series of sepia-styled pics Jenner’s recent performance of 818 showing her riding a horse in a hat and a loose cotton shirt has caused outrage. The photos proclaimed on her Instagram account have been thumped by users, by which she has accused the model of trying to profit from Mexican fashions and stripping local farmers of business, who are also “misrepresented” in the images.
Her brand, which was launched in California this week, Jenner is yet to comment on the contention surrounding it.
She’s following in the footsteps of George Clooney and Michael Jordan, who founded brands Casamigos and Cincoro respectively. After that Jenner is absolutely not the first celeb to be influenced by cashing in on tequila.
