Keke Palmer slams Kylie Jenner for caving to societal pressure to ‘make herself beautiful’

Social media makes it difficult to remain authentic, according to Keke Palmer, and the actress believes the Kardashians should shoulder much of the blame.


Speaking to Yahoo Beauty, the Scream Queens star said the internet has become so judgmental that people will either beat trolls to the punch and put themselves down, or conform to the societal version of perfection so that nobody can criticize.

She said;
“In the sense of the Kardashians, it’s like I’m going to show you so much perfect and be everything a woman should be or everything a man would like or love,’ she said. ‘And I’m going to be exactly that so you can’t bully me anymore.
Specifically in the situation with Kylie, where you’ve had a young girl people have seen on television since she was a kid and they literally told her she was so ugly … the ugly person in the family. She went and did apparently everything the world deems as beautiful. The even crazier part is that everybody loves her for it.
What I find interesting is that this is something that is being displayed to my generation — showing young girls, young guys that if you do everything that society wants you to be, not only will you be praised for it but you will make money for it. You can be profitable for not being who you truly are.

I would just say always be real with yourself, because at the end of the day that’s all we got. There’s nothing more important in life than being true to ourselves and being 100 percent loving to ourselves. Putting our feelings [first] and how we wanna feel and do that above what anybody thinks no matter how impossible, selfish, weird, scary. or embarrassing that may seem.
When I realized that, I realized that’s what it means to be confident. Confidence is me making choices that empower me.”
