Kendall Jenner Responds To Ballerina Drama: ‘It’s Not Going To Stop Me’

Last month, Kendall Jenner flopped across a ballet studio in a pair of pink slippers talking about how much she loves “walking around” for a Vogue España shoot, and ballerinas all over the damn internet requested a formal apology.

The women and men of the ballet world were not about to let Kendall Jenner tarnish the sanctity of an art form that’s kept them on their toes since the 15th century.

Honestly, it’s still pretty unclear whether “appropriating ballet culture” is an actual fuck-up worth losing our minds over.

Kendall was “appropriating ballet culture” as much as she was “raising awareness for ballet,” but assuming the model’s temporary assumption of the ballerina identity for the express purpose of a concept-driven photoshoot is a legitimate issue facing the dance world, Kenny has responded to the backlash.

On her app Thursday, the 20-year-old admitted she doesn’t fully comprehend the outrage.

Kenny wrote,

It confuses me how people can get that upset when there are so many important things going on in the world. But, it’s obviously not going to stop me from working hard and being me.

It’s true. In fact, past appropriation accusations hurled at the Kardashian/Jenner family easily land within the realm of more important things.

Though Kendall’s response is hardly an apology, leaving the issue open-ended with “it’s not going to stop me” is essentially a blood oath promising the public we have years of the Jenner/Kardashian’s appropriative faux pas ahead of us.

Let us ration our rage accordingly.
