Kendall Jenner is hoping to clear the air about controversial comments she made in a recent interview. On social media, the high-profile model attempted to clarify some statements she made in a recent interview -- statements which have earned Jenner a lot of backlash on social media. Both fans and industry professionals were offended by Jenner's comments, which seemed to dismiss models who have to take as many opportunities as possible to boost their own careers. Here's the statement Kendall Jenner wrote on social media trying to explain herself after the controversy she earned for her comments in this interview.
As Kendall Jenner explains in the Twitter comments meant to clarify the statement, she doesn't want to insult any of her model peers. Instead, she believes it was entirely complimentary. She claims that the respect she hosts for other models is "immeasurable," and she doesn't want to hate at all. Whether or not she is able to clear the air with these remending statements is something that social media will have to determine in the days to come.
Kendall Jenner is, of course, no stranger to controversy. Most notably, the model earned a great deal of criticism for her Pepsi commercial which many people deemed inappropriate, tone deaf and offensive. The backlash from that video was a lot more extreme than this one. Hopefully, Jenner weathers the seas of this controversy a little better. The 22-year-old model hopes that's the case, at least. Meanwhile, whether it's related to controversies or not, we'll keep you posted on all the latest developments with Kendall Jenner and her lavish life and career right here at CinemaBlend.
