Kendall Jenner Subtly Hit Back At Accusations That She’s A “Mean Girl,” And People Have Some Thoughts
Kendall Jenner is not here for the mean girl allegations.
For those who aren’t aware, Kendall has been labeled a “mean girl” by several fans and critics of the Kardashian/Jenners for quite some time now, namely due to her apparent “passive aggressive” attitude.
Kendall’s treatment of her younger sister, Kylie Jenner, is something that massively fueled these accusations back in the day. As viewers of Keeping Up with the Kardashians might remember, Kendall would frequently belittle and mock Kylie, once memorably telling her that her lips looked “too big” after she got fillers.
When their sister Kim complimented Kylie’s newly-enhanced lips, Kendall pulled a startled face before jumping in and saying, “No one needs anything, everybody’s beautiful.”
On a separate occasion, Kendall laughed as she critiqued Kylie’s “back pores” in front of a group of their friends.
“You have really big body pores. Does that make sense?” she giggled on an episode of Life of Kylie. “Your back pores, I love getting in there after spray tans.” After Kylie remained silent for a moment, Kendall told her, “Don’t be sensitive.”
Kendall then went on to offer her opinion on the long, red wig that Kylie was wearing. “I loved your hair yesterday. I love when you’re, like, normal Kylie, but then you put bangs or something,” she said.
This particular exchange between Kylie and Kendall actually resurfaced on TikTok a couple of months ago, where it was met with scathing comments critiquing Kendall’s behavior.
“‘You have big back pores’...‘don’t be sensitive’ literally something a bully would say,” one person wrote. “Mean girl for real,” someone else added.
And Kendall herself is more than aware of these “mean girl” allegations.
During an episode of The Kardashians that aired last October, Kendall was asked about some of the “misconceptions” that she’s heard about herself. In response, she said, “I think the one that I guess hurts the most is that people think I’m a mean girl.”
“Because that’s just not the case,” she went on. “It can be upsetting when someone is questioning your character… If only people knew me.”
Later on in the episode, Kendall added, “I feel like anything I do, anything, gets hate. I could be walking down the street doing absolutely nothing, and somebody always has something bad to say.”
“I think the narrative has gotten so out of hand about me and my family that there’s just no changing it anymore,” she said.
Now, Kendall appears to be doubling down on her stance.
This week, the model quietly liked a couple of tweets defending herself against the “mean girl” accusations.
The first tweet that Kendall liked suggested that people trying to portray her as “mean” are a bunch of “haters.” It reads, “The mean girl image you're all trying so hard to portray Kendall as is so forced, many people who aren't even a fan of her have had enough of y'all's accusations and they are even defending Kendall now... you all are just straight up haters.”

And Kendall followed up by liking another tweet from the same user, which says, “I really don't know why people are so quick to judge and came up a conclusion right away, you don't know these people!!!”

However, going on to discuss Kendall’s subtle Twitter activity in a Reddit forum, several internet users remained pretty skeptical as they once again recalled her harsh past treatment of Kylie.
“The thing that I remember about Kendall being mean is how she was to Kylie,” one user reiterated.
“This is what made me dislike her 1000%!!! She used to be my favorite during the earlier seasons, but I noticed she started being so snarky to Kylie, and it made me dislike her so much,” someone else agreed.
