Model-of-the-moment Kendall Jenner posts racy image on Instagram.
It has often been said that controversy makes for good PR. Well, Kendall Jenner certainly knows how to makes waves, as this week she posted an image on her Instagram account posing nude under a chandelier while smoking.
The supermodel, 21, said that the cigarette was merely a prop and said, “I don’t smoke.” But considering she is a role model to over 82 million fans who follow her on Instagram, is she setting a bad example for her impressionable devotees?
After all, Kendall does look glamorous in the black and white image (taken by Sasha Samsonova) that shows her fully nude, albeit lying on her stomach, outside. She is on a stone table with her hair effortlessly brushed to one side. She has natural makeup that emphasizes her dark brows and full lips. And the cigarette is propped between her fingers that her head is resting upon.
Recently, many celebrities have been speaking out against the dangers of smoking. These celebrities include Emmy award-winning actor Jon Hamm, who said, “It’s glamorous on film, but it’s not glamorous waking up and smelling like an ashtray.”
Others who speak out against smoking include Sir Anthony Hopkins, Kelly Ripa, Matt Damon, Christy Turlington and Gisele Bundchen.
And even on Kendall’s Instagram, some of her followers commented negatively about her holding a cigarette. One fan said, “I caught you smoking cancer sticks.” And another of Kendall’s fans said in disappointment, “Ohhh, you smoke.”
Whether she actually smokes or not, is Kendall glamourizing an unhealthy pastime to her devoted fans? After all, if you have 2.9 million likes and 46.5 thousand comments on this single post, how many young, impressionable minds are you influencing? What do YOU think?
