Kendall Jenner has hit out at claims she photoshopped an image of herself posing with a fake Black Lives Matter sign.
The 24-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star found herself being ridiculed last week when an Internet user photoshopped an image of her.
The image showed Kendall posing near a supercar while wearing a face mask and holding a sign reading “Black Lives Matter” over her head.
However, her shadow in the image showed she was not holding up a sign at all – with social media users implying she had faked the image herself to capitalise on protests around the world supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and demonstrating against the death of George Floyd.
The fake image went viral with Twitter, Instagram and Facebook users wrongfully blasting the reality star for the image.
However, Kendal has now hit back to deny she ever posted the image and says that it is fake.
Taking to Twitter on Saturday, the star responded to one of the other social media users who had circulated the fraudulent image.
She tweeted: “This is photoshopped by someone. i DID NOT post this.”
Fans had previously come to Kendall’s defence after some social media fans fell for the cruel prank.
One shared the original image which showed Kenall without a face mask and smiling while reaching towards the sky.
They wrote: “I hate that she’s getting slammed for something she didn’t do!! It’s an edit.”
While another tweeted: “Obviously, the pic isn’t legit. And I don’t think it’s something she has posted anywhere. Can’t find it on IG, FB or anywhere else. Looks like someone is trying to get her some heat…”
The model has also been targeted amid ongoing George Floyd protests over her infamous 2017 Pepsi advert which saw her defuse a protest stand-off with police by handing an officer a can of the carbonated soft drink.
The advert sparked outrage at the time for trivialising police brutality in America and the effects on African Americans.
