Kendall Jenner sets the record straight!
Kendall Jenner is setting the record straight after a photoshopped picture of her surfaced on social media. The pic of the supermodel featured her holding a sign above her head that reads "Black Lives Matter," however in the background, something seems amiss.
The photo is clearly photoshopped as the reality star holds a water bottle in one hand, and most obviously, a shadow lacking the sign in question.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was accused of not only creating the photo but using it as a means to show support without actually doing anything. Jenner responded to the backlash on Monday, saying that she had nothing to do with it, and didn't post it.
this is photoshopped by someone. i DID NOT post this. https://t.co/nQ7uNnGB20— Kendall (@KendallJenner) June 6, 2020
Someone tweeted, "I know being famous is so difficult and you have to show your support but instead of taking the time to photoshop pictures, you could’ve just signed a petition or a video of you just talking about this horrific cause and what organization is there to support."
This comment leads Jenner to respond to the allegations saying, "This is photoshopped by someone. I DID NOT post this."
Kendall was also under fire from fans for taking a while to respond to the current protests, and of course, the controversial and tone-deaf Pepsi ad from 2016, which resurfaced in recent weeks.
The Kardashians sharing their support
Kourtney Kardashian also took to social media to let people know how she plans on making a difference, saying that in times like these we must have "difficult conversations" with our children.
The Instagram post also shared that we must be open with our children, and allow space for them to feel comfortable.
"I encourage other mothers to join me in using this as a learning lesson for our children, to allow our children to feel comfortable enough to come talk to us about anything," she wrote.

As a mother, there is a natural instinct to protect my children from anything that might make them feel sad or unsafe. The pain and suffering inflicted by racism is not a thing of the past and I bare the responsibility to speak with my kids honestly and often about it, even when the truth is uncomfortable. I have to make sure they understand what it means to have white privilege and to take the time to learn and discuss Black History, beyond just one short month out of the year. I encourage other mothers to join me in using this as a learning lesson for our children, to allow our children to feel comfortable enough to come talk to us about anything. Allow conversation without judgement, and learn from our children too. We don't know it all. My children sometimes ask questions that I may not know the answers to, so we explore them together. I've felt like I've always been on the right side of this, but I have a lot to learn and want to educate myself even more, so that I can be a better mother, a better auntie to my nieces and nephews, a better friend, and a better person.
