Kylie Jenner has been criticized for “faking disability” by posing in a wheelchair in an updated 2015 photo.
The reality TV star upset fans after a disabled blogger shared a comeback photo on social media.
In the photo, Kylie is sitting in a wheelchair, wearing a shiny leather bodysuit, with a choker around her neck and buckles wrapped around her ankles.
She is fully dyed, her short jet black hair framing her face as she looks forward, holding onto the wheels of the chair.
The photo shoot was intended to be published in a magazine to highlight the “surreal life” of the star as a result of her fame.
A vlogger and activist for people with disabilities posted a cover on TwitterFueling the anger of fans with a scandalous photo.
They wrote, “Nice day to remember that Kylie Jenner, the third most popular person on Instagram, made this cover 6 years ago to represent the ‘disability’ brought on by her fame. Terrible. But this did not affect her career, because only disability serves to temporary discomfort. “
Others drew attention to the comments to express their disappointment, writing in one letter: “She has such a tough life. Have you ever checked this young billionaire’s philanthropic portfolio and ratios? “
Another agreed, answering, “God. I’ve never seen this before. HOW did she get away with it? “
A third user described the photo as “disgusting,” explaining why it is offensive to people with disabilities: “It all makes me cry. Her life is so hard … she has not lost the ability to walk. She does not know. struggling to afford the proper medical equipment, not to mention the level of disrespect. I am disgusted. “
A fourth person addressed her “black fishing” statement and replied, “It was just before all black fishing. What is real Kylie anyway? “
‘BLACK FISH ACCUSATIONS
Kylie has been repeatedly accused of “fishing”, which is seen as a form of cultural appropriation.
Back in March, she was called after she shared a short video of her face in which critics claimed that she had “completely changed her skin color.”
And in October, the beauty came under fire when she was filming herself and Kendall in the car on the way to their sister Courtney’s engagement to Travis Barker.
Critics have noted the siblings’ noticeably darker skin in the short video.
One wrote on Reddit: “Filter or fishing?” to which the other replied, “I think fishing ?!”
Another intervened, “Okay, if THIS is not black phishing, what is it? This is literal blackface. “
Black fishing refers to someone pretending to be black or mixed-race using things like hair and makeup.
Stay in silence
The 24-year-old has remained silent in recent weeks after the Astroworld festival, which killed 10 people and injured hundreds during a performance by her 30-year-old father, Travis Scott.
A day after the November tragedy, Travis apologized on social media.
Kylie also shared a statement in which she wrote that she and Travis were “devastated.”
The couple are parents to their three-year-old daughter Stormi and are expecting their second child together.
