Earlier today, Kylie Jenner’s cover story with Interview magazine was released. It’s not even a full day later, and she is receiving backlash.
In two of the photos, Kylie is seen posing in a wheelchair. These pictures have sparked controversy with many who are disabled and find them offensive. “Someone should tell Kylie that a wheelchair isn’t a fashion statement; it’s some people’s reality,” tweeted Feminism Vibes.
Interview magazine defended its decision to feature Kylie in a wheelchair, telling E! News, “At Interview, we are proud of our tradition of working with great artists and empowering them to realize their distinct and often bold visions.”
Interview went on to say it was “placing Kylie in a variety of positions of power and control and exploring her image as an object of vast media scrutiny.”
Kylie has not responded yet.
