Kendall Jenner outrages modelling community with 'disrespectful' comment

scandal 22/08/2018

Kendall Jenner has made comments about carefully picking her fashion jobs and they're not sitting well with her model peers.

“Since the beginning we’ve been super selective about what shows I would do,” Jenner, 22, told Love magazine. “I was never one of those girls who would do, like, 30 shows a season or whatever the f**k those girls do. More power to ’em.”

She continued, “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.”

Over the weekend, Love magazine posted the model’s quote along with an image from her accompanying photoshoot — and Jenner’s catwalk peers flocked to the comments section to share how they felt about her workload.

“This makes me so angry,” wrote Victoria’s Secret model Jac Jagaciak. “So disrespectful to literally 99% of people in the industry — yes, they had to work their way up. Please get in tough with the real world!”

Added Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition stunner Vita Sidorkina: “Maybe ‘those girls’ need to pay their bills that’s why they are doing 30 shows? No words …”

Other models screengrabbed and shared Love magazine’s post to their Instagram Stories along with commentary. “‘ … 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,” wrote runway fixture Daria Strokous. “Oh, and it’s 70 shows a season by the way and we are all f**king proud of every single one of the girls that did it.”
