Kendall Jenner hit back at trolls who mocked her acne at the 2018 Golden Globes on Sunday night. Because the world is terrible sometimes, people couldn’t help but make fun of the fact that the supermodel had a few blemishes on her face. Kendall, who attended the awards show for the first time as a guest of Vogue, wore black on the red carpet in solidarity with the Time’s Up movement.
However, instead of complimenting the 22-year-old’s beautiful dress, perfect hair, and good intentions, the internet decided to criticize her skin. Not cool. Many took to Twitter to mock Kendall’s photos – especially the high definition ones — zooming in and highlighting her acne marks.
But Kendall decided to shut down the acne shamers in the best way possible – by not letting them get her down. Her epic response to haters came after one fan tweeted, “Ok but @KendallJenner showing up and strutting her acne while looking like a gorgeous star is what every girl needs to understand.”

Following Kendall’s reply, fans rushed to comment, with the majority thanking her for speaking so honestly about her skin issues. You go, girl! It happens to all of us. Unfortunately for Kendall, she needs to deal with the idea that a bad skin day could fall on an event like the Golden Globes.
Can all agree that Kendall looked absolutely beautiful, though? Just take a look for yourself.

One person who definitely agrees is Khloé Kardashian, who thought her little sister looked fab. The pregnant reality star commented on an Instagram photo of Kendall, writing, “I cannot f*cking handle it! The best she’s ever looked! And she looks epic always but this is craziness.”
We agree with you, Khloé! After all, what are a couple of blemishes anyway? Why do people feel the need to shame someone because of something they truly have no control over? It seems ridiculous when you really think about it.
In 2015, Kendall opened up about her battle with acne and how its impacted her self-esteem. “Where it really impacted me was how self-conscious I became about it,” she wrote on her since-deleted blog. “It completely ruined my self-esteem. I wouldn’t even look at people when I talked to them.”
“I felt like such an outcast; when I spoke, it was with my hand covering my face. Sure, I had crushes in high school, but I wouldn’t even think about looking at guys,” she continued.
Kendall also admitted she tries not to let the haters get her down anymore. “I’m working towards not caring, and I’m just in so much of a better place about it all now that I’m older,” she added.
So just remember that if you’re ever feeling down about your acne (or a pimple that grew on your chin overnight), everyone – even international supermodels – has bad skin days.
