Not a good start to the week.
Seriously - the internet is really hating on the Kardashian-Jenner’s at the moment.
There was Kendall’s Pepsi campaign and then her Adidas campaign and then Kim Kardashian was slammed for apparently defending Jeffree Starr’s racist comments.
But now it seems that the internet has found time to pore over Kendall’s use of emoji in a recent tweet.
No, we’re not joking.
While celebrating the family’s recent Hollywood Reporter cover, Kendall posted the caption, “sister power… girl power” with a tan fist bump emoji. You know the one - you send it to you BFF’s daily.

Out of the five skin tone emoji options, Kendall used the third one which is labelled as ‘medium’.
Fans were quick to jump on her case:
oh nah, why Kendall put her emoji as a darker skin tone?— Cersei (@CrazyClarine) August 20, 2017
Kendall & Kylie are worst of the Jenners & Kardashians. REALLY KENDALL?! You're white. Not black. Use the correct emoji. Stop fucking up. https://t.co/Q7UnPwqPE8— A b b i (@sachs_abbi) August 20, 2017

Whilst others, may not have exactly defended her as such, but seemed to side-eye the entire conversation:
People are ACTUALLY mad about the COLOUR of the emoji Kendall Jenner used. Surely there's more important things to be angry about?— jazz (@jazz_matchett) August 20, 2017
People are mad bc Kendall Jenner used a specific colored fist emoji.............. I can't with the internet today.— Sarah Jemiola (@sjemiola) August 20, 2017
Oh, and incase you were wondering, Kendall isn't the least bit bothered by the drama:
Remember when she fell off her bike? LOL.
