Kylie Jenner Has Lip Fillers, But These 7 Body-Positive Quotes From Her Famous Peers Will Help Tune Out The Haters
After months of rampant speculation, Kylie Jenner has copped to utilizing lip fillers, and those who follow the reality star's Instagram account, red carpet appearances, and television appearances are less than astonished. Even less surprising is the reasoning behind Jenner's reticence to make a confession about the cosmetic adjustment, given the intense scrutiny placed on the Kardashian/Jenner clan by paparazzi, most notably regarding their appearance.
The members of family itself are no strangers to cosmetic procedures, if the widespread rumors and physical evidence are to be believed, but outside the compassion of the Kardashian kin lies the disapproval and mockery of the public. Thus, Jenner's choice to remain mum about lip injections is logical.
However, despite the tidal wave of negativity poised to break at any moment due to Jenner's confession, the starlet's coterie of famous friends will undoubtedly provide their support. In this modern age, privacy is privilege that cannot be bought — especially by those who choose to live their lives in the public eye. From body-shaming to beauty-shaming, Jenner's famed Millennial friends have experienced the full gamut of aesthetic critiques, experiences that will likely cause the group to rally for the cause. Scroll through for seven encouraging and body-positive quotes from Kylie Jenner's clique.
Perhaps their wise words will help Jenner feel a bit better about herself as the backlash begins to roll in, reminding her that she's perfect the way she is — lip injections or no lip injections.
