Keke Palmer's Rant On Kylie Jenner's Lips: We "Agreed That She Was Ugly"

Is that a fact?

Everyone loves criticizing Kylie Jenner’s looks. She gets called fake, plastic, and is accused of having more surgical enhancements than her sister Kim Kardashian. Jenner has admitted to getting lip fillers (for a very sad reason) And she’s built an empire around it with constant lip kit updates. But with all the scrutiny she’s under, would it really be all that weird if she did get a few more tweaks here and there? And everyone used to tease Kylie when she looked like this:

Keke Palmer went off on Instagram about the standards women are held to, and railed about the fact that though she doesn’t entirely approve of the Kardashian family, she understands why Kylie Jenner spent some cash on new lips.

She writes in part, “After Trump's win, I really was convinced that we have become so obsessed with making things appear to be real than needing them to actually BE real...Looking at this photo above I couldn't help but stop dead in my tracks because even though I do feel like this family sets an example that it's good to change for societies affection, how can you blame them?

“We don't think that this young woman deserves the attention she receives because of the message it sends but we don't even think about the fact that for years the whole world damn near agreed that she was ugly. A CHILD, that girl was a child and she was bullied and named ugly and not as a character but as HERSELF ... And unlike some that experience such ridicule she had the $$$ to change, she "fixed" what the world said was broken and it worked! Now you are mad that it was that easy?"

After Trump's win, I really was convinced that we have become so obsessed with making things appear to be real than needing them to actually BE real. AKA: Reality 📺, that's the gag. Reality television is based off of the desire WE HAVE to see non scripted shows that MIMIC reality, "false things appearing real" that's the ART of it, how real they can make us THINK it is. And many social media platforms support that same thing. We have settled for knock off truth in our actual reality because it's socially acceptable to lie for likes. Looking at this photo above I couldn't help but stop dead in my tracks because even though I do feel like this family sets an example that it's good to change for societies affection, how can you blame them? We don't think that this young woman deserves the attention she receives because of the message it sends but we don't even think about the fact that for years the whole world damn near agreed that she was ugly. A CHILD, that girl was a child and she was bullied and named ugly and not as a character but as HERSELF ... And unlike some that experience such ridicule she had the $$$ to change, she "fixed" what the world said was broken and it worked! Now you are mad that it was that easy? When the generation has already been force fed to love things that are false and appear as real 👁. We are confused! So many of us on who we should be and how we should act, who we should like and how we should pursue them. It's all been brought to another level because being fraudulent is our countries most popular trend. If only we could accept one another instead of bullying each other into change. We wouldn't be so confused or misunderstanding all of these mixed messages that ultimately tell us to trade attention for respect and love for possession. We could instead let our differences TEACH us something new instead of walking around looking, acting and being the same. WE DIFFERENT FOR A REASON.

The rest of her rant suggests that we as a culture are confused about what we want and expect from one another, though it is also confusing. Not a hundred percent sure that’s what she means when she says, “We wouldn't be so confused or misunderstanding all of these mixed messages that ultimately tell us to trade attention for respect and love for possession. We could instead let our differences TEACH us something new instead of walking around looking, acting and being the same. WE DIFFERENT FOR A REASON.”

Okay. I guess I agree that we send mixed messages to girls and women about what they should be doing to be loved, and how they should value themselves. If that is what Palmer is saying? I know I don’t think Kylie Jenner should get so much hate for her physical appearance, and so does Palmer! I think.
