Kylie Jenner was harshly criticized by thousands of fans after she published some photos of her in the laboratory where her Kylie Cosmetics brand products are manufactured.
In the photographs it was pointed out that there was a serious violation of sanitary protocols by not wearing a hairnet, shoe covers, mask and gloves. However, the reality star has already come to her own defense.
The 24-year-old celebrity received a harsh comment from cosmetics developer Kevin James Bennett, who reprimanded her for not wearing the proper equipment to be inside a lab. But Kylie was clever and replied that she "never bypass sanitary protocols."
“Kevin, this picture is not taken in a manufacturing facility. i would never bypass sanitary protocols and neither would any other celeb or beauty brand owner,” she wrote.
In addition to clarifying that the images had not been taken in the laboratory where Kylie Cosmetics are manufactured, the celebrity added that “[I was] creating my own fun samples and taking pictures for content nowhere near the mass manufacturing. No one is putting customers at risk !,” she added.
Later, the publication and the answers became a trench from where they fought with arguments of defense and attacks. For example, Kylie Jenner accused Kevin of spreading false information, while Kevin accused her of “serious[ly] gaslighting” her followers.
However, Bennett's response was not simple at all but became more intense: “So you were standing on a platform, looking into an expensive homogenizing kettle that had processed at least 50 liters of a complexion product (the product still covering the mixing paddles) without PPE or your hair tied back, wearing a @weareregi lab coat? But this is not a cosmetics manufacturing facility?” Kevin said, obviously annoyed.
Both arguments did nothing but confuse the followers who did not know who to believe, because the main argument that began to spread in defense of Kylie Jenner was that the photographs in a laboratory were so common, so they resorted to setting up spaces that were resembled real laboratories.
“Many brand owners take those pictures. She’s not doing anything wrong, and we have zero way to know how involved she is in formulation,” said an Instagram user.
“I’ve seen all kinds of scenarios in development labs, but uncovered hair near a kettle in production would never happen. Full stop,” wrote another person who also defended Kylie.
Kylie Jenner's cosmetics company has been on the market for a few years now, since 2014 it has been making beauty products to which Kylie Skin and Kylie Baby have joined, an exclusive line for baby care.
