Kylie Jenner Clapped Back At A Fan Who Claimed She Was Trying To Seem Relatable In A “Cringey” New TikTok And Insisted It’s “Not That Deep Or Calculated”

Ever since the birth of her second child in February, it has been widely theorized that billionaire Kylie Jenner is trying to rebrand herself as a relatable mom who is just like every other 25 year old on social media.

The shift in how she presented herself online was reminiscent of her “King Kylie” era — a period between 2014-17 when the star was genuinely considered to be one of our most relatable celebrities.

Before she was the savvy business mogul that we know today, the youngest of the KarJenner sisters utilized her public profile with an online alias that saw her doing normal teenage things like pranking her family and experimenting with her hair and makeup.

Despite her ever-increasing fame and fortune, Kylie managed to expertly maintain an air of normalcy around her social media posts, but as she became more successful and moved higher up Forbes’ rich list, her King Kylie persona began to fade away.

By the time her daughter Stormi was born in 2018, Kylie had largely retreated from the public eye by stepping back from her social media accounts and drastically reducing her appearances in her family’s reality show.

The new focus appeared to be on Kylie as a businessperson, as her various brands went from strength to strength.

But when her son, whose name she has not yet revealed, was born earlier this year, fans started to see glimmers of the old Kylie as she returned to social media and began to showcase a more open and authentic personality.

In TikTok videos that have been posted in recent months, Kylie has shown off her cooking skills, poked fun at her sister, Kendall Jenner, and regularly showcases her endearing mother-daughter dynamic with Stormi.

She has even shifted to a less contrived approach when it comes to plugging her products, swapping glossy photoshoots and aesthetically-pleasing Instagram photos for candid videos.

And this was clearly demonstrated when she promoted her new range of lip glosses on TikTok at the weekend. In the short clip, Kylie filmed the product in her hand as she walked over to her car.

Once inside the car, Kylie screeched as she dropped her phone and giggled: “Ahhh, oh shit!” before continuing with the video.

Getting everything in place while she fixed her hair, Kylie casually told viewers: “OK, this is better,” as she launched into her sell for the four new gloss shades that she was advertising.

But her followers weren’t buying it. With Kylie’s decision to include the moment that she dropped her phone in the TikTok’s final edit raising eyebrows, along with her choice to speak about the products while sitting in her car.

People in the comments were quick to point out that this is a normal trope on TikTok from everyday content creators as they often film their videos during their breaks from work, which means their car affords them otherwise-impossible privacy to shoot.

In other cases, creators will have only just bought the product that they are reviewing from the store, so film the video before driving home.

As a result, Kylie was called out for being inauthentic and trying to copy other, non-billionaire TikTok users in a bid to seem more relatable.

“Girl did you just walk out the mansion to go in your car as if you went to the store and couldn’t wait to try it,” one person commented. Another joked: “How to be relatable: step one: get in to the car, step two: drop phone. THAT’S IT 😀”

And TikTok user @PlasticChandler broke down the discourse when he stitched Kylie’s video to add his own thoughts to the conversation.

Caveating that he has “no grounds to actually speak on this” because he isn’t a publicity expert, Chandler explained: “I think it’s very interesting when you watch this video, it’s very curated to the style of an influencer and not Kylie Jenner.”

“Like, this is something Emma Chamberlain would post,” he went on. “And I just think it’s interesting because, it’s like, you’re a billionaire, girl — why are you reviewing lip kits in your car when you live in a multi-million dollar home?”

“You didn’t just go to the store and pick that up, you didn’t get home from somewhere and get it from your mailbox. That was very deliberate of going to your car to film that, and the phone drop was kind of cringey,” Chandler added.

The TikTok creator then explained that celebrities have started to copy regular people who are popular on the app so that they can learn how to come across as more relatable.

“These people have never lived a normal life, ever,” Chandler said. “And that’s no hate to them, it’s not their thing. But they have to find these people that have gotten popularity from being somewhat normal and then they take that personality and their traits and what they do so that they can make videos like that and seem normal enough so they can relate to us.”

“Because they are billionaires,” he concluded. “This is not something Kylie Jenner does on the normal, I promise she doesn’t just sit in her car.”

Chandler’s video quickly gained traction, with most viewers agreeing with his stance in the comments. One person quoted another user as they wrote: “Someone said ‘Kylie we sit in our cars because we’re on our lunch breaks.’”

“The thought of her getting in her car solely to film that tiktok and then getting out immediately afterwards is so funny,” another wrote. A third said: “Even their ‘authenticity’ is v much curated.”

But when the video came onto Kylie’s radar, she decided to clap back as she insisted that her post wasn’t “that deep.”

“It’s really not that deep or calculated,” she commented on Chandler’s TikTok. “This video took me 5 mins to make. and yes i still drive and do normal things 🤣”

Chandler initially expressed his shock at Kylie’s response as he shared a comedic video of him going about his working day with the knowledge that she’d commented, but he later resorted to muting her name after he was targeted by her fans.

At the same time, he clarified that he is a genuine fan of Kylie’s and had been an avid viewer of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but was simply commenting on the marketing tactics that he perceived to be at play.

Meanwhile, this is far from the first time that Kylie has been accused of carefully curating her relatability, with a previous TikTok that documented her trip to Target being branded “damage control” when she posted it after she was exposed for taking super-short flights on her private jet.

It was also pointed out that the store appeared to be empty during her shopping trip with her daughter and nieces, which suggested that she went after hours rather than when regular customers would have been around.

She and her mom, Kris Jenner, also prompted backlash during this year’s premiere season of The Kardashians when an entire storyline revolved around their excitement to go to a supermarket.

Kylie and Kris went on to compare pumping gas and getting a car wash to “Disneyland,” with disgruntled viewers claiming that the scenes were proof of how “out of touch” they are with the real world.

Tina Turner reportedly died without ever having met ‘most’ of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

The ‘Queen of Rock n Roll’ is survived by two of her four sons, as well as two grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

Turner died in her Switzerland home on May 24 at the age of 83 from an undisclosed illness.

Now, Page Six claims the mother of four did not let on to her wider family that she was ”seriously ill” in the lead up to her death.

The music icon’s close friend, Cher, confirmed on social media Turner “was really sick and not wanting people to know about it”, after suffering with illness “for a long time”. 

According to Page Six, the River Deep, Mountain High singer never met her grandchildren and great-grandchildren from her biological son Ronald ‘Ronnie’ Turner and her adoptive son Michael Turner. 

Ronald, the biological son of Tina and Ike Turner, who had an infamously tumultuous marriage shared three children from his marriage to wife Afida Turner.

He died in December 2022 at the age of 62, his wife revealing he had suffered a medical emergency after falling ill in the weeks prior to his death.

In a touching tribute, Turner shared her heartbreak to the world on Instagram. 

“Ronnie, you left the world far too early. In sorrow i close my eyes and think of you, my beloved son,” she wrote.

The singer reportedly didn’t get the chance to meet Ronnie’s two children, Raquel and Randy, nor her granddaughter Raquel’s two sons, Tyson and Tyrese. 

The Proud Mary singer was also the grandmother of Tiffany Turner-Dukes, 40, the daughter of Michael Turner – who Turner adopted, alongside Ike Jr., from her marriage to their father Ike Turner in 1962.

Tiffany is the founder of an anti-bullying non-profit and apparently takes after her grandmother as she is also credited as a musician.

Tiffany, nor her three children Marli, Amari and Gianni, ever met their famous relative in person. However, Tiffany posted a sweet tribute to her late grandmother, writing, “Rest in freedom…Uncle Craig and Ronnie are waiting for you.”

The post references Turner’s loss of both her biological sons Ronnie and Craig, who died before their mother.

Turner shared Craig with saxophonist Raymond Hill, who was in Ike’s band Kings of Rhythm. She had Craig when she was 18 and still in high school.

Craig died by suicide in 2018 at the age of 59.

Turner shared on Twitter that losing her firstborn was her “saddest moment as a mother”. 

During a talk with close friend Oprah Winfrey, the singer shared her disbelief and grief over his death.

“During our last talk, he said, ‘I just want to hear your voice and that laugh.’ He had never said something like that. I think that was his goodbye to me, but I didn’t realise it at the time,” Turner recalled.

Neither Craig nor Ike Jr. had any children.

A royal wedding! Prince William and Princess Kate were among many high-profile guests at Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan and Rajwa Al Saif‘s nuptials.

The Prince and Princess of Wales, 40 and 41, respectively, looked chic upon their arrival at the Thursday, June 1, ceremony at Zahran Palace. While William sported a suit, white shirt and blue tie, Kate donned a detailed, blush pink dress with long sleeves and a high neckline by designer Elie Saab. She completed the look with large, bejeweled earrings and a gold clutch.

The couple weren’t the only British royals in attendance. William’s cousin Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, were also seen arriving at the wedding. Edoardo, 39, twinned with William in a similar suit ensemble, while Beatrice, 34, matched her husband’s blue tie with an embroidered, pale blue gown featuring a black belt.

William and Kate previously took a trip to Jordan with their children — Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5 — in 2021. They featured a photo from the trip on the family’s Christmas card that year.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have many other ties to Jordan. Crown Prince Hussein’s mother, Queen Rania Al Abdullah, serves on the council of William’s Earthshot Prize, which awards environmentalists around the world for helping to make the world a better place. Kate, meanwhile, lived in the country from 1984 to 1986 while her father, Michael Middleton, worked for British Airways.

The couple’s royal wedding attendance comes nearly two months after the pair celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary. “12 years ❤️,” the two captioned a new photo via their joint Instagram account on April 29, featuring them posing for a pic during a bike ride.

William and Kate’s outfits matched the ones they wore in their family’s 2022 Christmas card. Keeping things casual in jeans, William sported a navy blue button-down shirt while Kate wore a lacy white top.

The duo tied the knot at Westminster Abbey in a red military uniform and white, long-sleeved dress in April 2011. The wedding came 10 years after they first met as students at the University of St Andrews. Two years later, they became parents with the birth of George, followed by Charlotte and Louis in 2015 and 2018, respectively.

Three kids seems to be the perfect number for William. “Don’t give my wife any more ideas!” he joked while Kate was holding a baby during a hospital visit in January 2022.

Last month, the family of five stepped out at King Charles III’s coronation on May 6. While George served as one of his grandfather’s Pages of Honor, the parents matched their looks with their younger two children. Louis’ navy outfit complimented William’s blue royal robes, while Kate and Charlotte twinned in white Alexander McQueen dresses and floral headpieces by Jess Collett x Alexander McQueen.
