It’s no secret that some women feel the need to tear down the worth of other women based on some sort of physical appearance. Whether a teenager is bullied by the popular girls in high school for having raggedy hair, if someone in an office gets put down for being overweight, or if someone is constantly afraid to wear their glasses in public because they fear that others will look down on them, this form of mind set is definitely there and is not helped by the media.
News sources love to point out the flaws of different celebrities on a constant basis. And sometimes, this can really affect the self confidence of the person being criticized, no matter how stunning they actually are. Kendall Jenner has been pretty open in the past about facing her insecurities that revolve around her skin and acne issues.
At the Golden Globes on January 7th, she embraced her appearance and strutted her stuff.
Some fans noticed some ache on her face, and began tow tweet about it, seemingly discarding the realization that words do hurt, even if they are targeted to Vogue’s it-girl. One fan took a stand against the hate and tweeted, “Ok but @KendallJenner showing up and strutting her acne while looking like a gorgeous star is what every girl needs to understand”.
Jenner ended up retweeting what this one, positive fan said and then later addressed the issue by discussing how important it is to be a woman in the beauty industry and to not define their self worth by critics who estimate their sole worth based on looks.
