Kendall Jenner just caused another controversy with her latest tweet. She shared on October 13 a braless photo of herself, claiming to support breast cancer awareness.
Together with the hashtag #NoBraDay, Kendall captioned the photo of her ditching her bra in a sheer top with ‘Free the Nipple! Support Breast Cancer Awareness!’
But many Twitter users quickly reacted and blasted the model, saying that her pic might offend cancer victims who had lost their breasts to the disease.
‘Kendall needs a better PR team… Who told her that flaunting something in honor of those who have lost theirs is okay?’ one commenter wrote.
‘So she’s showing off what breast cancer has taken away from victims. How does that help? I would think it would make victims sad,’ another critic similarly had written.
‘For the record..no bra day doesn’t mean to show the world you still have yours,’ one pointed out.
Another asked, ‘Do you know what women with breast cancer go through?’ before adding that Kendall’s post ‘is neither inspiring or compassionate. Tbh I’m sure you meant well- but…’
One observer wrote, ‘Bras don’t cause cancer any more than belts cause stomach cancer. Stupid.’
Another commenter suggested that Kendall should ‘read a bible,’ commenting, ‘Free the nipple no morals is more like it. Other ways to promote breast health. Sad world we live in today.’
There was also a user who linked the whole boob thing to the current sexual assault crisis in Hollywood, saying, ‘And you wonder why Hollywood has a sexual assault problem… I know it’s no excuse but nobody needs to see your breasts out in public.’
