Kendall Jenner did not post the BLM photoshopped protest photo circulating on social media

On Friday, June 5, a photo began circulating on social media of Kendall Jenner posing in a protective facemask while holding up a Black Lives Matter poster. There was just one problem: the photo had clearly been altered.

As eagle-eyed users were quick to point out, while Kendall appeared to hold a poster in the photo, there was no shadow of the poster in the background — a clear result of a photoshop fail. Before long, the photo set the internet ablaze as users called Kendall out for what seemed to be a poor attempt to show support for Black Lives Matter and the ongoing protests for change following the death of George Floyd.

Kendall Jenner has had her fair share of photoshop fails over the years; however, the recently surfaced photoshopped protest photo circulating on social media is not among them.

While the photo originated from a Facebook page which indeed had Kendall Jenner’s name attached to it, the page behind the image is not one with any official connection to Kendall. Rather the image originated from a fan page and not Kendall’s official Facebook page.

Kendall Jenner releases statement urging followers to become better allies

While Kendall was not behind the photoshopped protest photo, Kendall has user her platform to address the ongoing protests and the murder of George Floyd.

In addition to showing her support directly through her limited social media re-shares designed to inform and educate followers, Kendall furthered the conversation with a well though-out statement in which she urged followers to educate themselves and become better allies in supporting Black Lives Matter.

Check out Kendall Jenner’s complete message released via Instagram below:

"To everyone reading this and to myself: keep researching, reading, and educating yourself on how we can become better allies.I’ve been doing a lot of thinking these past few days and my heart has been so heavy. I’m angry and hurt just like so many. I will never personally understand the fear and pain that the black community go through on a daily basis, but I know that nobody should have to live in constant fear. I acknowledge my white privilege and promise I will continue to educate myself on how I can help. Raging on platforms can not be all that we do in order to repair the system, we need to take real action, off of social media. this is a time to have those uncomfortable conversations with people and mainly with ourselves. we must also make sure we are ready to vote when the time comes to elect the right people into office.The one truth that will always ring loudest is that BLACK LIVES MATTER. Rest peacefully George Floyd and all victims of this horrible injustice."
