Jenner sisters Kendall and Kylie refuted allegations of failing to compensate a factory in Bangladesh that produces garments for their joint fashion line, Kendall + Kylie.
The claims came to light in a now-deleted post by fashion watchdog Diet Prada, which also cited efforts of a nonprofit that identified a company allegedly running the sisters’ brand.
Kendall Jenner and her company, Kendall Jenner Inc., were reportedly slapped with a $150,000 lawsuit after being sued by an Asian American photographer for copyright infringement.
In the court documents acquired by The Blast, New York-based photographer Angela Ma accused the 24-year-old “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star of using the video she took of Jenner in the Big Apple on her Instagram page without Ma’s consent.
The Jenners are at it again — this time, it’s “purse-onal”.
The pair have repeatedly made headlines for their tone-deaf advertisements and products this year — first, the infamous Pepsi ad that showed Kendall Jenner seemingly ending racism with a can of soda.
Kendall Jenner being featured on the cover of Vogue India’s 10-year Anniversary issue has sparked outrage over the magazine’s failure to feature an actual Indian model.
The backlash comes about a month after the supermodel half-sister of Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, appeared in a Pepsi commercial that was so highly-criticized that the company ended up pulling the advertisement altogether.
However, her snapshot also reveals a bit of irony — even Kendall Jenner doesn’t use Tidal, the troubled music streaming service that Kanye West, her half-sister’s husband’s best friend, Jay Z, launched last year.
Given today’s internet culture, Viners, Youtubers and Instagrammers know that social media influence is the ultimate form of power. The more popular you are, the more valuable you look to companies who want you to shout out about a product to your hundreds of thousands to millions of followers — and that’s money right there.
No one plays this game better than Kendall Jenner, at least according to her nearly 44 million followers. With those numbers, the 19-year-old reality T.V. star, entrepreneur and Victoria’s Secret Angel earns between $125,000 and $300,000 per post.
