The world is turned upside down after an African American man George Floyd died in an incident. From that moment on, several celebrities, actors, actresses, models, designers, singers have come forward on the protest of Black Lives Matters.
It is not new news if one of them photoshop their photo in one of the circumstances, recently supermodel Kendall Jenner has been accused of posting the photoshopped image of herself to make it appear as though she was raising a Black Live Matter Poster.
The image spread like wildfire when tech geek Andru Edwards tweeted in his official account on Friday, June 5, with an intriguing caption, “What’s missing from @KendallJenner’s shadow?”

Moving on in one of the photographs, the Kardashian star is seen wearing a black face mask, a black pant, and a matching sheer black tank top along with white sneakers. In addition to that, she is holding a big poster where Black Lives Matter is written in big letters.
Long thing short, if you look closely at the photo, the Jenner inside the picture does not cast a shadow. Another way to view this is that the pic is totally photoshopped in accordance with the poster and the mask itself. Andru claimed that Kendall was all responsible for this problematic editing fail.
In defense, the 24 years old model tweeted thorough her official account that “I did not do this.” The post appears to be a screenshot taken from her Facebook page titled 20k. In the following post, the original poster wrote Kendall Jenner #BlackLivesMatter”.
People of the internet were pretty quick to react and do some vigorous sleuthing. One fan wrote, “Obviously, the pic isn’t legit. And I don’t think it’s something she has posted anywhere. I can’t find it on IG, FB, or anywhere else. It looks like someone is trying to get her some heat…”
Following that, another one tweeted, ” It only takes2 seconds to do a google search, but you’d rather drag a celeb to get likes instead.” The user also shared the original photo of Jenner, which was originally posted in November of 2019 while celebrating her 24th birthday.”
With all this thing going on Edwards posted a tweet on Sunday, June 7 saying,
“Oh boy. When @KendallJenner quote tweets you, the DMs get flooded with an angry mob! Kendall, come on the podcast, and let’s talk it out!”
Will Kendall join the podcast? Or is she just going to let the time pass by?
That’s not the end-all. The fans even mocked the model by recreating her commercial and posting their pictures offering police officers with a Pepsi. On the contrary, others sarcastically commented that Kendall’s Pepsi stunt didn’t bring peace to the current protests and went after her for keeping “Silent.”
On June 1, the stunning model posted a paragraph of the caption on Instagram about the unfortunate events.
“To everyone reading this and to myself: keep researching, reading, and educating yourself on how we can become better allies. I have 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 goes through on a daily basis, but I know that nobody should have to live in constant fear,”

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
Even more, she added that raging on platforms is not enough to repair the system. She continued,
