Kendall Jenner has once again found herself in the firing line over an endorsement deal, with many of her fans claiming they were misled via the social media hype drummed up by her “momager”.
On Saturday, Kris Jenner commended daughter Kendall on Twitter “for being so brave and vulnerable” in sharing “her most raw story”.
I’m so proud of my darling @KendallJenner for being so brave and vulnerable. Seeing you share her most raw story in order to make a positive impact for so many people and help foster a positive dialogue is a testament to the incredible woman you’ve become. pic.twitter.com/rJUXdN2Wmq

To further fuel the intrigue of Kendall Jenner fans, Kris followed up with this:
Make sure to watch @KendallJenner’s Twitter on Sunday night to find out what I’m talking about and be prepared to be moved. #bethechange #shareyourstory #changetheconversation #proudmom #finallyasolution #authenticity #mydaughterinspiresme #getready

However, the “raw” story Kris raved about on social media turned out to be an endorsement announcement for Proactiv, with the skincare company using Kendall’s battle with acne on the red carpet at last year’s Golden Globe Awards to plug its products.

And, understandably, many of Kendall’s fans were furious, claiming they were misled by the hype provided by Kris.

Kendall Jenner teaming up with Proactiv is the biggest example of celebs and influencers hawking product they’d never use a day in their entire life, and I’m over it. *insert eye roll here*
