The media was not any gentler to Kendall’s younger sister, Kylie. Kylie Jenner just recently turned eighteen years old, but you might not think that from looking at her. With her appearance seeming older than most sixteen and seventeen year old girls, she was an easy target for the media. Kylie has been accused recently by tabloids of undergoing a breast augmentation and getting lip injections. Jenner owned up getting lip injections after many months of denying them, calling her naturally thin lips “an insecurity of mine”. At the time, Kylie was only seventeen years old. Many people would argue that the Jenner girls are not the young women girls should be looking up to. They might be right, but that does not take away from the fact that many…show more content…
This wouldn’t surprise anyone who follows the young woman on instagram, because you could at any one of her pictures and read the thousands of horrible comments that are left. Will Rebein, an artist, has taken a stand and is trying to show the public just how cruel many people are to her. He made a short film using video clips of Kylie, and then put a voice over of comments that had been left on her pictures.

Every girl has insecurities, but it is different for girls in the spotlight, “Unlike every other teenage girl, Winter didn’t have to motivate herself to feel uncomfortable or obsessed with her body-because she had the media there to overanalyze on her behalf”. This not only affects the girls who are being picked apart in the media, but the little girls who look up to them. Without a doubt, there are teenage girls out there who look up to Ariel Winter because she is curvy and not stick skinny like most Hollywood starlet’s. When they see that Winter decided to get a breast reduction, will that make them feel like there is something wrong
