Kendall Jenner Shares The True Story Behind Her Black Lives Matter Controversy

Earlier this week, an image of Kendall Jenner holding a fake Black Lives Matter protest sign began circulating online

The photograph that was posted to Twitter looked like a screenshot from Kendall's Facebook page, which showed the model holding a sign that read "Black Lives Matter" above her head, while wearing a face mask. 

However, the person who posted the tweet with the screenshot was quick to point out that the she wasn't actually holding a sign, as it was not visible in the shadow behind her on the ground. People quickly began commenting on this, suggesting that the star had edited the sign and was not actually supporting the BLM movement

Despite the accusations, Kendall quickly took to Twitter to clarify that the picture was not posted by her, nor was it posted to her Facebook page.

"This is photoshopped by someone. I DID NOT post this," she said.

Fans started searching for the original picture to prove that the photo was intentionally photoshopped by someone else, looking to stir up controversy, and were successful in finding it. The original unposted image shows Kendall holding other items within her hands.
