Kendall Jenner addressed the Photoshopped Black Lives Matter photo that went viral on social media this weekend. She responded to claims that she shared an image of herself holding a fake Black Lives Matter sign. At first, the image looked like it came from the model’s Instagram account. It went viral on social media earlier this week.
The photo shows Kendall wearing a black face mask with a black mesh top, a black bra, and matching black pants. The 24-year-old holds a fake Black Lives Matter sign. Fans noticed that the photo didn’t look real since it didn’t show her shadow in the sunshine. They accused Kendall of Photoshopping it herself.

Did the model attend a Black Lives Matter protest with Harry Styles?
Kendall Jenner was previously criticized for her silence on the Black Lives Matter movement and racial injustice. Per AceShowbiz, a friend of her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles was the one of the ones to drag the model. Harry attended a protest in Los Angeles, California with a group of his friends. Some of the photos went viral on social media. Of course, fans assumed the dark-haired woman in the photos was Kendall. His friend shot down the claims and threw shade at the reality star.
“For those wondering if any of us are kendall – no lol [sic],” Harry’s female friend wrote. “She was not at the protest. She was looking for a Pepsi.”
This was a dig towards Kendall’s controversial 2017 Pepsi ad in which she handed a can to a police officer at a protest. Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner were first romantically linked in 2013 after they were photographed on a date in West Hollywood. Despite hanging out on various occasions, they never confirmed the romance rumors. The pair was also spotted practicing social distancing via their luxury vehicles back in April.

to everyone reading this and to myself: keep researching, reading, and educating yourself on how we can become better allies. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking these past few days and my heart has been so heavy. I’m angry and hurt just like so many. 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. 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. 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. the one truth that will always ring loudest is that BLACK LIVES MATTER. ❤️ rest peacefully George Floyd and all victims of this horrible injustice
