Kendall Jenner has been on the cover of every major magazine in the world, but it’s her most recent one that the Internet is having a field day about. Jenner was on the cover of Vogue Spain and shot a video for the media outlet, posing as a beautiful, childlike ballerina and speaking out about how she didn’t have a normal childhood. Although the video might have been artfully crafted, it unfortunately sparked a major controversy among actual dancers, most notably Abby Lee Miller of Dance Moms.

“I had to grow up pretty fast,” Jenner says in the video while prancing around a ballet studio, doing her best imitation of a sashay. “I love being a kid — to run around like a child just not caring. I’ve always been adventurous, so I love doing stuff like that — I don’t know, just stupid stuff. I love walking around; being able to be free.”

Miller, who’s known for her being hypercritical on her hit show, believed Jenner’s turn as a ballerina was a sad imitation of such a beautiful art, displaying poor technique and ability.

The Dance Moms star was so maddened by the video that she even took to Instagram to say that she “cannot be a fan of this shoot” because of the incorrect technique and failure to feature an actual dancer, even writing, “Shame on Momager, Kris Jenner!!!” See her entire rant, below:

That’s not all: Other dancers felt inclined to speak out against Jenner’s shoot as well, expressing some pretty harsh words against the supermodel and the outlet alike:

Nothing against Kendall Jenner, but cast an actual ballet dancer instead, maybe? @VogueSpain

Kendall Jenner trying to be a ballerina for vogue Spain………are they kidding

Although it’s true that Jenner is no ballerina, Miller (and the rest of the Internet) might be coming down a bit harshly on the reality star. It’s doubtful that Vogue Spain was hoping to highlight Jenner’s dancing technique, but instead wanted to use the grace, elegance, and sophistication of ballet as an art form for the piece.

Knowing the Kardashians and their unfaltering ability to defend one another, we don’t doubt that someone will speak out in Jenner’s defense. (Khloé would be our bet.) Until then, you can watch the Vogue Spain video here:
