Kendall Jenner explains how her offensive comment was misrepresented
Kendall Jenner (22) can never stay away from the drama and all we have seen from her is doing something or saying something without even thinking and then apologizing the next day and this is the same thing that has happened this time! After her picture was revealed on The Love Magazine and her talk about the reason behind her success, she has been receiving backlashes from the fellow model and quite honestly, what she said IS offensive even to us who are not models! Here is what the interview said:
"Since the beginning we've been super selective about what shows I would do. I was never one of those girls who would do, like, 30 shows a season or whatever the fuck those girls do."
"More power to them. But I had a million jobs, not only catwalks, but everything else. The whole combination was very overwhelming and I started to freak out a little bit and needed to take a step back,"
And of course after the reaction she received, she went on Twitter to clarify all the misunderstandings!
"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!"
"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."
"Cultivate kindness today and always."
Teddy Quinlivan (24) on her Instagram wrote: "As models we need to uplift each other. We all work extremely hard to pursue our dreams even the 'girls who walk 30 shows a season or whatever the f--k those girls do'."
"If you are lucky as a model you might make enough to not be in debt to your agency; maybe even move out of the model apartment…if you’re lucky."
"I’m privileged, I’m white, I’m a passable trans woman, my family doesn’t rely on my paycheck to survive."
"Unfortunately this isn’t the case for the vast majority of models who have to leave everything behind including their families in pursuit of a better life."
"Models don’t just come from Calabasas…they come from Somalia, The Siberian tundra, a rural village in China, a trailer park in Tennessee."
"Making disparaging comments about your peers doesn’t lead to growth or unity which our regulation-less industry desperately needs.."
Daria Strokous (27) wrote: "'… Whatever the f**k those girls do' is do their very best to make their way up AND try to make some money so that they can provide for themselves and their families."
"Oh, and it’s 70 shows a season by the way and we are all f*****g proud of every single one of the girls that did it."
Peyton (20) wrote: "This kinda disrespect towards other models who have NO NAME for themselves walking into the industry is disgusting."
Kendall's rep commented: "She realized the number of shows some models walk a season is closer to 80."
