Keke Palmer slams Kylie Jenner

July 28, 2017

Keke Palmer has criticised Kylie Jenner for giving in to “extreme” social pressures.

The 23-year-old actress has slammed the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star for trying to be “so damn perfect” that bullies have nothing to say to her.

She said: “So often [famous] people feel like, you know what, I’m just going to beat [haters] to the punch and either degrade myself or be so damn perfect they have nothing to say. We’ve seen extremes of that. In the sense of the Kardashians, it’s like I’m going to show you so much and be perfect and be everything a woman should be or everything a man would like or love. And I’m going to be exactly that so you can’t bully me anymore.

“Specifically in the situation with Kylie, where you’ve had a young girl people have seen on television since she was a kid and they literally told her she was so ugly ... the ugly person in the family. She went and did apparently everything the world deems as beautiful. The even crazier part is that everybody loves her for it.”

And the ‘Scream Queens’ star criticised Kylie for giving the wrong message to her generation.

She added: “What I find interesting is that this is something that is being displayed to my generation - showing young girls that if you do everything that society wants you to be, not only will you be praised for it but you will make money for it. You can be profitable for not being who you truly are.”

However, Keke insists she has never caved in to society.

She told Yahoo! Beauty: ”[It is] absolutely so hard [to be authentic on social media] because everybody wants to make everybody so crazy, stupid, ugly, or dumb [but I stay true to myself].”
