Kendall Jenner Speaks Out on ‘Photoshopped’ Black Lives Matter Protest Photo


Kendall Jenner has spoken out about an allegedly altered photo of herself that has gained attention on social media.

People reported that many fans thought the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star attended a protest when they saw a picture of the model wearing a black mask and holding a sign that read: "BLACK LIVES MATTER."

But others soon realized that the shadow behind Jenner where the sign should be was missing and called her out for allegedly photoshopping the picture.

One Twitter user wrote : "Your shadow is missing your signs shadow @KendallJenner? Photoshop at it's finest. Their to lazy to actually protest they have to fake it."

After more fans started calling out the star, Jenner explained that the original picture was edited to make it look as if she was at a protest, but that she had nothing to do with doctored image.

"This is photoshopped by someone. i DID NOT post this," Jenner tweeted.

While Jenner has not been seen participating in any demonstration, the supermodel further explained how she would educate herself about racism.

The 24-year-old said that she has been doing a lot of thinking while being angry and hurt like many across the nation.

"I will never personally understand the fear and pain that the black community go through on a daily basis, but i know that nobody should have to live in constant fear," Jenner wrote in an Instagram post.

"I acknowledge my white privilege and promise I will continue to educate myself on how I can help. raging on platforms can not be all that we do in order to repair the system, we need to take real action, off of social media," she added. "This is a time to have those uncomfortable conversations with people and mainly with ourselves. we must also make sure we are ready to vote when the time comes to elect the right people into office."

She concluded by saying: "the one truth that will always ring loudest is that BLACK LIVES MATTER. ❤️ rest peacefully George Floyd and all victims of this horrible injustice."

For weeks, the nation has continued to mourn and remember George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody after a now-fired white police officer knelt on his neck for over eight minutes in Minneapolis, MN, while he struggled to breathe.

On Tuesday, family and friends are gathered for George Floyd’s funeral to say their final goodbyes.

The private funeral began midday Tuesday at The Fountain of Praise Church in Houston.
