Kylie Jenner she wants the fans to know that she is just like them. The 24-year-old reality star and businesswoman applauded a critic who claimed her August 26 TikTok post of her promoting her new lip blushes from Kylie Cosmetics was inauthentic. “It’s really not that deep or calculated. this video took me 5 minutes to make. and yes i still drive and do normal stuff,” she wrote with a laughing emoji below the person’s tirade about the video of her.
Kylie’s video, seen below, began with her dropping her phone and yelling, “Oh sh*t!” and then showed her sitting in her car and talking about her “really comfortable” lip product. The TikToker, whose handle is @plasticchandler, noted that the promo appeared to be “very polished in an influencer style” rather than branded to fit Kylie’s usual videos. “You’re a billionaire girl, why do you check lip kits in your car when you live in a billionaire house?” the user questioned. The person then called the video “deliberate” and the phone drop “cringey.”

The video has been viewed more than a million times and fans seemed to agree with TikToker. “That was the most intentional fall I’ve ever seen,” one person commented below the original video. “Apparently she’s just like us… just put down my phone and pretended I just got my own cvs lipstick,” another hit. “She drops her phone too! that’s crazy and so relatable,” another user sarcastically commented. Of course, some of her loyal fans defended her, writing: “Why is everyone upset that she is in her car and dropped her phone?” A second supporter added: “Why is everyone upset that she is in her car and she dropped her phone?”
The controversial video came after the mother of two shared a video montage of her epic night celebrating the release of kylie cosmetics a ultra Beauty in Los Angeles. Kylie hosted some of Hollywood’s hottest stars on August 24, including charli d’amelioLori Harvey and newlyweds kourtney kardashian Y Travis Barkerto honor its expansion.

Kylie was also in the news for allegedly acting dismissive towards fans at the event. The drama happened after Refinery29‘s alexa may rhodes posted a TikTok of her meet and greet with the founder of Kylie Skin, for page six. In the caption of the since-deleted video, Alexa seemed excited by the opportunity, writing, “Interviewed the one and only @kyliejenner tonight what a moment.” Unfortunately, fans didn’t think the video was all that sweet and accused Kylie of almost ignoring Alexa and not meeting Alexa’s eyes. Kylie has not addressed the backlash over this specific situation as of this writing.
