Kylie Kristen Jenner (born August 10, 1997) is an American media personality. She has starred in the E! reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians since 2007 and is the founder and owner of cosmetic company Kylie Cosmetics.
At age 14 in 2012, she collaborated with the clothing brand PacSun, along with her sister Kendall, and created a line of clothing, "Kendall & Kylie". In 2015, Jenner launched her own cosmetics line called Kylie Lip Kits, which was renamed to Kylie Cosmetics the following year. She also released a mobile app that reached number one on the iTunes App Store.
In 2014 and 2015, Time magazine listed the Jenner sisters on their list of the most influential teens in the world, citing their considerable influence among youth on social media. As of November 2019, with over 150 million followers, she is one of the most followed people on Instagram. In 2017, Jenner was placed on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, making her the youngest person to be featured on the list. Jenner starred on her own spin-off series, Life of Kylie, which premiered on E! on August 6, 2017.
According to Forbes magazine, Jenner's net worth is estimated at US$1 billion, making her, at age 21, the world's youngest billionaire as of March 2019. However, the notion of Jenner being self-made is a subject of controversy, owing to her privileged background. In November 2018, New York Post credited her for being the most influential celebrity in the fashion industry.
Whether she chooses to be ignorant, or it's just a symptom of her fame and youth, here are 15 things that prove Kylie Jenner is the worst.
15 She's A Teenager Alright, there's nothing wrong with teenagers other than their occasional attitudes. However, there are the teenagers that have more money at the age of nineteen than most people will earn over their entire lives, and that's exactly who Kylie Jenner is. While the rest of the population is slaving away trying to make a living and praying to hopefully own a house by the time we're thirty, Kylie has more money than the rest of us could ever dream of, and she's not even twenty. She's so privileged she'll probably never understand the meaning of 'hard work', and it's a pretty frightening thing when you don't have to learn how to work for anything in your life, especially when so many young girls worship her. Teenagers are bad, but teenagers that are spoiled brats? If you wanted to nominate for the most problematic teenager, we know who it would be. She perpetuates a series of values that are completely deplorable, and it's why she's the most polarizing teenager alive.
14 She's A Bad Role Model Understandably, a teenager shouldn't be a role model, but when you're one of the most famous women around, it might be smart to be mindful of who looks up to you. Younger girls are feeling the pressure to look like her, especially with her lip kits flying off the shelves, but that means those girls are feeling inclined to get plastic surgery just like Kylie did... and didn't admit to. Not only that, but she's constantly posting raunchy videos on SnapChat and wearing next to nothing on Instagram, and this could make girls as young as fourteen or fifteen try to imitate her. She might not want to be a role model, but that's the influence she has. It's best to not even get on the topic of Tyga because she was dating a man over seven years older than her before she was eighteen, which younger girls should definitely not be admiring. Kylie Jenner might be the poster girl for a horrible role model, but the sad truth is, is that millions of teenage girls look up to her.
13 She's Famous For No Reason Which is code for the only reason she's famous is she's apart of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, which still is basically no reason. It's pretty infuriating watching somebody with arguably no talent live the life of luxury. She hasn't gone to university, she can't act, she definitely can't sing. If that's all it took to be famous, the majority of the population would be given a Ferrari by their rich boyfriend, too. When she has no idea what it's like to not be born into insane amounts of money, it's pretty easy to dislike her, and it's why so many Hollywood celebrities loathe the Kardashians. It's understandable; when you're a spectacular singer or a world famous actress, it can be pretty annoying to know you're just as famous as the family that does nothing other than star in reality television. Kylie Jenner is famous for no reason, and it's probably the most obnoxious thing about her.
12 She Overcharges For Her Lip Kits If you've ever bought one of the infamous Kylie Jenner lip kits, be prepared to regret it. When a beauty guru reviewed the Kylie Jenner lip kit initially, she said it wasn't all that bad... until it was relaunched with a brand new formula. Upon further investigation, it was revealed the ingredients in Kylie's lip kits were identical to the cheaper brand, ColourPop. ColourPop actually had more ingredients in their lipsticks than in Kylie's, but are significantly cheaper, so wouldn't you think you should be paying more for more ingredients? Wrong, because while ColourPop's lipsticks work out to $16.82 with shipping and tax, Kylie's lip kits work out to be $40.13. Yup, you're seriously wasting your money. That's an astounding $23.31 difference for the exact same formula. They're charging more only because Kylie's name is attached to the product, which is pretty screwed up, and that's another reason why Kylie Jenner is a problem.
11 She Says The Most Outrageous Lies Sometimes you hear a celebrity say things that make you shake your head in disdain because it's totally outrageous. The list of those idiocies goes on with Kylie Jenner, and it makes her totally unbearable, to say the least. Along with claiming she never got lip injections, only to later backtrack after everyone called her out on it because it was so painfully obvious she had, there are a few other questionable comments. How about when she claims she hates wearing makeup? It's a little hard to believe she loathes it when she wears that much of it. We can't pretend to know her, however, we can still be incredibly skeptical of everything she says. In that same interview, she claimed that “When I'm like, 30, I just want to go off the map, have a family and live in Malibu on a farm, and just raise my own chickens.” That's definitely a cringe-worthy lie, and it might make you think that Kylie's the worst.
10 She Believes In Chemtrails This is the unproven belief that long-lasting trails that have been dubbed "chemtrails" are left in the sky by planes and that they are filled with chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed for sinister and unknown purposes. It's generally considered absurdly ridiculous, however, Kylie Jenner tweeted about them back in May of 2015, pondering their alleged evil purpose. This proves that she really is the worst because before you know it, she's going to be claiming the earth is flat or that the moon doesn't exist. It can be pretty frustrating when people choose to believe random conspiracies without fact checking anything, and it's apparent that Kylie Jenner is one of those people. This might make you want to unfollow her on Twitter, and maybe everything else. It might be tragic, but it's definitely one of the reasons she's not only the worst Kardashian but a celebrity you want to avoid at all costs.
9 The Cornrows Incident Hair is a lot more political and cultural than you might even realize. While there is an outcry that it's wrong for different cultures to appropriate staples of certain ethnicity and race, there is the other crowd that isn't buying it and claims that it's a good thing the styles are intermingling. Kylie might believe in the latter, but how she handled it was fairly rude. When Amandla Stenberg commented on a picture of Kylie, who was wearing cornrows, the Hunger Games actress said “When u appropriate black features and culture but fail to use ur position of power to help black Americans by directing attention towards ur wigs instead of police brutality or racism”, which made a good point. Kylie has never tried to do anything for the black community and considering her power position, she certainly could be trying to initiate change. Instead, she simply answered, “Mad if I don't, Mad if I do... Go hang w Jaden or something.” Yup, that's a pretty ignorant response.
8 She's Materialistic Once, Kylie claimed that she isn't materialistic, she's spiritual. This might go to show how blinded she is by her money and fame because there is a tirade of Instagram photos that go on to display quite the opposite of what she says. Considering she's posing in all of her photos with either new shoes, a thousand dollar handbag, expensive outfits, and let's not forget her Ferrari, it might be safe to bet she isn't clear what materialistic means. The amount of photos she posts of her shoes alone might prove it, but after claiming something so ridiculous, it definitely goes to show how oblivious she is. She can be quoted on a few of her captions as saying “diamonds are a girl's best friend” and that doesn't sound as spiritual as she might want it to. She was quick to post a photo of the newest iPhone when it came out, and it's safe to assume she owned it the moment it was available. Alright, Kylie, whatever you say... but you're totally the definition of materialistic.
7 She's Narcissistic When you purchase a mansion worth $2.7 million on your 17th birthday, it's easy to see that you've got an ego that is only growing. However, the trends that Kylie perpetuates are dangerous, especially when they're built on narcissism. She is constantly posting selfie after selfie and photoshopping a startling amount of them, and this brand breeds the idea that self-obsession and your physical appearance is more important than anything else. For younger girls, this might influence them to believe that this is the path to success, versus having an education or a career. She posts nearly a dozen pictures of herself every week, wearing makeup and clothing that is too expensive for most teenagers to even dream of. While she's glorifying her rich girl lifestyle, her ego is on display in every picture she posts or adds to her story, and it's why she has become so problematic for younger girls especially.
6 She Was On Time's “Most Influential Teen” List As someone with an astounding amount of influence over the youth of today, as she is still a teenager herself, this might make sense at first glance. That is until you see who she's placed between Tiffany Zhong, a shockingly young analyst and an associate at Binary Capital, and Malala Yousafzai. If you're not familiar with the name, she's the girl who won a Nobel Peace Prize for advocating for women's rights after she was shot by the Taliban. One of these is not like the other, and to place Kylie Jenner next to two young women who are tremendously intellectual and has even put their life on the line. It's wrong. To see Kylie Jenner on the list means being upset, and even a little disgusted, when you realize the sacrifices and hard work many of the other teenagers have gone through to get there. She definitely doesn't belong there, and it's beyond frustrating to see her on it.
5 She's Uneducated On Race As someone that's probably ignorant about the connotation and weight that a word can carry, maybe we should cut Kylie some slack. Everybody has an opinion on who is allowed to use the N-word, but if you're not black, it should be simple: it's a word for the black community to use, and only they should be able to debate whether or not it should be used. Apparently, Kylie didn't get the memo, because not only did she put the word on a cake to her friend, but there is an exceeding amount of evidence that proves her racial ignorance. When her and Kendall posted a vine that is desirable to black men, she's perpetuating the trope of black men being used as bedroom slaves, which has been around for centuries. It's harmful and ignorant, and while she might only be a teenager, she still needs to educate herself on race when she's in a position of power.
4 The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge While she didn't endorse the challenge nor encourage it, this just goes to show the effect this celebrity has on younger teenagers around the world. It caused girls to inflict physical pain on their lips so they would look like Kylie's. News flash, Kylie had injections, which she has openly admitted to. The problem was that she tried to sell the fact she'd never had plastic surgery until it was simply impossible for her to lie anymore. This teaches youth to not accept themselves, hence the appearance of the Kylie Jenner lip challenge. It leads to bruising, blistering, and even infections after it tore the skin. While in response to the challenge she claimed that she wanted girls to look like themselves and not her, her influence doesn't sell that idea. There is overwhelming evidence that proves how problematic Kylie Jenner can be, and even she seems oblivious to her dismal effects on teenagers just like her.
3 Her Relationship With Tyga There are a few reasons why her relationship with the rapper is creepy. If you think it's bad that she used to babysit Tyga's son while he was still with Blac Chyna, you might be unaware of some of the lyrics in his songs. He brags about bedding a 17-year-old in one of them, which is literally an offense considering how much older he is than her. It's disgusting, and when you factor in how many teenagers completely idolize and worship Kylie, then the truth is that they might think it's safe to be in a relationship like that themselves. It's perverse and even emotionally damaging, and there have been a number of women that have opened up about Tyga wanting to hook up with them while he's been with Kylie, including Blac Chyna. This is the opposite of a healthy relationship, and it's dangerous that younger girls could be wanting to imitate similar behavior. The bottom line is that these two are certainly not a match made in heaven.
2 The Wheelchair PhotoshooT One of the most controversial moments of this teenager's career has been a photoshoot she stunted with Interview Magazine... and it wasn't pretty. For once, people weren't creating an outcry over the over-appeal of Kylie Jenner. The images display Kylie in a super hot outfit while she sits in a wheelchair, which immediately sparked outrage from disability advocates. It enforces the idea the people with disabilities are powerless, as the message behind the shoot was to display how fame has stunted Kylie's growth. A number of people with wheelchairs took to twitter to speak of their outrage and how deeply offensive they found it, as it continues to make people associate wheelchairs with limitations. At the end of the day, the images send the wrong idea and are in bad taste, and it would be odd to think Kylie wouldn't be ashamed of putting her image in such an offensive message.
1 She Texts And Drives While most of the things Kylie Jenner does are moderately harmless, this one might just prove what a terrible person she can be. There have been countless times when the paparazzi have caught her on her phone while driving, and the worst might be when they caught her only a month after Caitlyn Jenner fatally killed someone in a car accident. Even if she hadn't been caught by other cameras, she has taken a number of vine videos as well as selfies while driving. This is completely ignorant of the lives of others and displays both her narcissism and her lack of respect for the rest of the world around her. Considering the fact that she's gotten into a number of car accidents, her recklessness and disregard for the road prove that she's a teenager with too much influence on her shoulders, and hopefully she learns her lesson before it becomes tragic. There are a lot of reasons why Kylie isn't a good role model, but this proves why she's the worst.
