Kendall Jenner felt the heat from many, many fellow models after an interview shed taken part in was published at the weekend.
In her chat with Love magazine, Kendall appeared to seemingly diss her peers for walking a high number of shows a month, admitting she prefers to be more choosy.
Her comments were hit with full on rage from models angry at her privileged views, arguing they worked hard to earn money to live.
Kendall has since responded to the backlash, claiming to have been misrepresented in the interview, offering her utmost respect to her fellow models, and saying her words were meant to be nothing but complimentary.
She took to Twitter to say: I was misrepresented in a recent interview over the wknd & its important to clarify the meaning. It was intended to be entirely complimentary but unfortunately, my words were twisted & taken out of context.I want to be clear. The respect that I have for my peers is immeasurable!

I get to experience first hand their tireless commitment, their work ethic, the endless days, the lack of sleep, separation from family and friends, stress of traveling, the toll on physical and mental health, yet they still make it all look effortless and beautiful.
Im inspired by so many of these people i have had the good fortune to work alongside! Theres no way i could EVER hate on that. i want everyone to win. SLAY ALWAYS.
She ended by saying: Cultivate kindness today and always.
The words that angered her industry sisters were when Kendall attempted to explain she doesnt take part in many catwalk shows due to her mental health, but instead sounded overly privileged.
Since the beginning weve been super selective about what shows I would do. I was never one of those girls who would do like 30 shows a season or whatever the fuck those girls do. More power to em, she said.
But I had a million jobs, not only catwalks but everything else. The whole combination was very overwhelming and I started to freak out a little bit and needed to take a step back.
Initial response to the backlash came from her reps said that shed misspoken when she suggested models only take part in 30 shows a month.
Mid-thought she realised the number of shows some models walk a season is closer to 80, the rep explained. The point was that its their path and “the more power to them,”.
She admires their hard work and dedication. Its an accomplishment.
