Kendall Jenner and her new boujee alcohol, 818 tequila, are getting torn apart on social media as some feel it is offensive and "modern colonizer vibes."
Taking to social media to launch the brand, Kendall shared a snap from the campaign with great pride. Never did she think that her braided hair and horse would cause this much commotion.
“What an incredible experience I have had thus far, learning about this beautiful place, it’s beautiful culture, and the beautiful people! @drink818 has launched in California... we will be rolling out to the rest of the US all summer long, keep a look out!!!”
Kendall turned off the comments to the post as she was getting a lot of negative backlash. The people took to Twitter to share their frustrations.
“No hate, but no matter what happen with Kendal Jenner, I think the people get power to not buy that “tequila” ! Just say it. ♀️”
“Kendal Jenner is such a colonizer. I literally can’t”
“Not Kendal Jenner exploiting our culture to make money. Her commercial fed into so many stereotypes, goodbye.”
“Kendal Jenner turned off the comments in her post abt her tequila ad bc she knows she’s gonna be called out for cultural appropriation. This bitch is so ignorant and tone-deaf I CANNOT !!!!!”
Briefly News previously reported that Kendall Jenner has taken to social media to share her first snaps together with her boyfriend, NBA star Devin Booker. Kendall took to her Instagram Story on Valentine's Day and posted pics of the Phoenix Suns player cuddling her while she had a huge smile on her face.
The super-model also tagged her bae on her 14 February post. The stunner has been linked to Booker since April 2020. Kendall and Booker were reportedly spotted together in Tahiti in October during Kim Kardashian-West's 40th birthday.
Social media users took the snaps of the catwalk beauty posted on Instagram and shared them on Twitter. Most of the tweeps shared that Kendall and Booker look cute together.
