People Are Mad Kendall Jenner Appeared in a Music Video With Chris Brown
Another day, another Kendall Jenner controversy. The 22-year-old model is facing backlash after appearing alongside Chris Brown — who has a history of abusing women — in Lil’ Dicky‘s music video for “Freaky Friday” — a song that also features vocals from the “Questions” crooner.
“Girl please don’t support an abuser,” one user wrote on Twitter. Another chimed in with, “Please tell me you’re not supporting Chris Brown.” A third agreed, adding, “How is anyone still working with Chris Brown? WTF?” Chris turned himself in after physically assaulting his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009 when they left the Clive Davis Grammy party. The singer’s ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran also accused him of being abusive, and she was granted a restraining order after he allegedly punched her in the stomach and threatened to shoot her.
This is hardly the first time Kenny got dragged over participating in controversial campaigns. Last year, the reality star was involved in a “tone-deaf” Pepsi ad, which some felt came off as dismissive to the Black Lives Matter movement. She recently opened up about that experience for April 2018’s issue of Vogue, and explained, “I am a huge people pleaser, and that is what my job has always been — you come to set and you do what you’re told.”
“I don’t think of myself as anything special most days — I am just a normal-ass kid who likes to hang out with her friends and likes pizza. My family, my agent, my friends all make fun of me for it — ‘Girl, you need to give yourself some credit,’ — but that’s what I took out of it. I need to be more present and pay more attention,” she continued.
A few months later, Kendall’s Adidas campaign brought in negative reviews — as many felt she didn’t fit the mold of their slogan, “Original is never finished.” The model and TV star has yet to publicly comment on her latest controversy.
