We all remember that ad that sparked one of the biggest controversies of 2017?! The ad where Kendall Jenner drank a mere Pepsi and ended a protest. Hm, lets see – with a multitude of protests going on due to our leadership or lack thereof, I’m certain that drinking a small, carbonated beverage wouldn’t do much!
Anywho – lets get off politics, and get back to fashion! Kendall Jenner has sparked yet another controversy, this time it’s for representing an athletic brand, without being an athlete! Many fans of the brand thought she was not worthy of being the face of Adidas Originals and many have expressed their dismay:
One person wrote: “A model when there are so many inspiring athletically talented women!! Are you an athletic company or a fashion company?”
Another wrote: “With so many amazing athletes to choose from, real Athletes that have inspirational stories of struggle and triumph. You choose Kendall to be the ambassador of your brand. What a joke.”
However, all the negativity counteracted with some positivies from Jenner’s fans “She is the perfect Adidas Original girl.” Adidas defended the model by issuing this statement: “A longtime fan of the brand, Kendall embodies the spirit of Adidas Originals as a creative force shaping the world today by challenging the status quo in her very own way. A classic icon, Kendall is a true Original and we welcome her to our family.”
