Hey Vogue, you guys couldn’t have just put a real ballerina in the video?
This video from Vogue España is drawing some serious hate from the ballet community. Is it clear that Kendall isn’t a dancer? Obviously. I point my toes better than that when just trying to stretch my arches.
But we were *so* unprepared for the level of disdain that we’re seeing all over social. The YouTube comments look like this:
Instagram isn’t much better:
And neither is Twitter.
Fashion magazines need to understand how dangerous it is to put untrained people on pointe #KendallJenner #vogue pic.twitter.com/fkwcWurFeo

I legit might be more offended by #KendallJenner trying to pose as a ballerina than like 90% of the things #DonaldTrump says

Sure, they could’ve used a real ballerina, but the point was to showcase Kendall. Pointe shoes definitely are not for the untrained, but the backlash is a little harsh. Don’t think they realized an entire community of people would think it’s absolute rubbish.
Everyone else, take notes.
