An Open Letter to All Models ‘Bullying’ Kendall Jenner

Hey everyone!

I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and saw a sponsored-type post about a struggling models letter to Kendall Jenner, and after reading it, I was left simply frustrated. (Here’s the full letter –> An Open Letter To Kendall Jenner About Her Model ‘Bullying’) Overall, the letter wrote to express to Kendall the daily and total life struggle of an every day model working for a spot on the big runway, and how hard life can be for them. She points out how frustrating it can be to other models who have done so much to get a call and then get pushed aside for someone like Kendall, who (presumably) just walks in to whatever she wants and simply gets it because of her families fame and fortunes.

Here’s my outlook on it all:

In many, many, many interviews Kendall has pointed out that modeling is her passion and her dream and something completely separate and singular from her sisters and the show, and that she wants her own light aside in the fashion industry. Not only did she say that, but she mentioned her struggle to be as successful has she has lately and how hard she has had to work for her spot on the runway.

Here are just a couple of interviews where Kendall expresses her journey to catwalk fame: ABC – Kendall Jenner Opens Up About Modeling, teenVogue – KJ in All of Her Up-and-Coming Mega Model Glory

This rant can be understandable, especially from my point of view because on a, most likely weekly basis, I get a bit annoyed with the 17-year-olds driving around in brand new Audi’s and Mercedes’ with no work to be done, while I’m working twelve hours a day to pay for my 2000 Lexus and a community college degree. Yeah, it sucks having to make your way to the top with no support and seeing other people walk into amazing opportunities with no understanding of appreciation and hard work because of their lucky birth rights, but that’s life and life isn’t fair. There’s nothing you or anyone can do to change the individual life that each of us lead and no way to change our born fortunes. And neither I, nor any other opinionated less fortunate individual have the right to comment on the fortunate lives and presume that they don’t understand the worth and don’t apprecaite the things they are handed. We don’t know them personally, do we?

But lets ask one thing – If writer Arisce Wanzer, wants Kendall to be so understanding of a per-say ‘regular’ models trek to success, and wants Kendall to see from their point of view, then maybe she should take a look from Kendall’s, and try to be understanding of her life.

It isn’t her fault she was born into fame and money and if she wasn’t she is still beautiful and fit to be a model and would be a successful one, regardless of her fortunes. So I don’t agree with this at all and I think it’s completely ignorant.

What do you think?

  1. Okay I have to say one thing to do this. In the very beginning Kendall was pushed into modeling by Kim and she did not like it.(This was seen on one of their episodes.) I don’t blame her for being born into money and fame, but I find it a little naive for her to think it wasn’t her fame and money that at least got her there. I think part of this “bullying” Kendall is receiving is for her refusal to acknowledge this.

    1. I definitely agree. She would never have had some of the amazing opportunities that she has had if it wasn’t for her family’s fame. But then again, majority of people get places in life because of their connections. she was lucky enough to have the ones that she did and there’s absolutely nothing that she can change about that. She really should own up to the fact that she has such a great doorway, and that really isn’t acceptable or nice so I do agree with that.
