How to deal with bullies, Kendall Jenner style
Kendall Jenner has had a big year. Not only did Jenner recently become the new face of Estée Lauder and make Time’s 2014 list of the 25 Most Influential Teens (with her sister Kylie), she has walked the catwalk for Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Givenchy and Balmain, but now the model has topped the Dazed 100 list.
Even so, Jenner still has haters. After being named on Time’s list beside Malala Yousafzai and President Barack Obama’s daughters, the magazine received some backlash on Twitter.
In a short film for Dazed magazine, the 19-year-old model reads from her own Mean Girls-esque burn book that is full of insults about her career, her looks and her intelligence. It’s a mix of mean, rude, insulting, vulgar comments and Mean Girls quotes (apparently Kendall was accused of making out with a hot dog), and she reads them all to the camera while sitting in a pink, girly bedroom and wearing minimal makeup.
None of those taunts seem to faze Kendall, who seems to have taken her friend, Taylor Swift’s advice and to Shake it off because you know haters are gonna hate, hate hate. Yes?
“Modeling isn’t something I’m doing purely for fun,” she says in the Dazed magazine interview. “It’s not something I’m doing to prove people wrong. It’s something that I’m doing because it’s what I want to do. And I enjoy it”.
We can only imagine the amount of troll messages Kendall receives everyday via her social media accounts. We have previously posted here on WSS about trolling and what you should do about it https://www.womanofstyleandsubstance.com/internet-trolls/.
Never, ever reply to a troll or nasty person. Block and report them. No one should have to tolerate abuse from another person, whether they are a celebrity or not.
