Kylie Jenner is not behind the controversial #KylieJennerLipChallenge
that many young people have been taking part in. Participants around the internet have been bruising their mouths in an attempt to emulate the lips of the youngest Kardashian half-sister.
After pictures of young girls’ failed attempts to get Jenner’s pouty lip look by suctioning their mouths with shot glasses started hitting the internet, she took to Twitter.
Jenner seems to be copying the “I’m not a role model” defense which the likes of Rihanna and Miley Cyrus have used in the past. Here the 17-year-old “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”
star doesn’t tell her fans to stop potentially injuring themselves, but rather to stop thinking they need to look like her.
As Jenner continues on her path to be the most headline-grabbing Kardashian sibling
, she should expect to be at the center of similar situations like this. She should learn a lesson here that not only is it right to respond when people are hurting themselves, but it’s OK to tell them to stop.
