Kendall Jenner is in the middle of yet another controversy. Nude photos of her leaked online, and unsurprisingly, the Internet did not take kindly to it.
According to TMZ, images of Kendall Jenner running and riding a horse completely naked on the beach from a shoot for an upcoming book entitled Angels by Russell James, were released without his permission.
Trolls were out for blood. Their reactions to the photo were just plain rude. People on Twitter body-shamed the supermodel for being “too skinny.”
As one pointed out, the users criticizing Kendall for her naturally skinny body were probably the same people who would condemn her sisters and other women for modifying their bodies with surgery.
Besides, if the point they wanted to get across was for the media to stop promoting that kind of beauty standard, they could have done so in a healthy way. In this case, they were plain bullies. There was absolutely no need for them to be hostile. As pointed out too, some women are naturally skinny. That doesn’t make them disgusting, or fake. All body types are beautiful, and deserve to be celebrated and promoted, as long as, of course, they’re healthy—which I’m sure Kendall’s is. She works out a lot, after all. She works hard to achieve that kind of body, and she deserves to flaunt it if she wants to. You would think a supermodel would be immune to body-shaming. But I guess, with women’s bodies, everyone feels like they have a say. And they just always have to have a say.
