Uh-Oh: Kendall Jenner Is Getting Dragged On Twitter For Using This Emoji
Kendall Jenner has come in for criticism over a recent tweet commemorating 10 years of Keeping Up With The Kardashians after the 21-year-old model used a fist-bump emoticon in the shade of a medium skin-tone.
If we dial things back for a second, the entire gang featured on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter to celebrate a decade of their E! series. In the interview, the family opened up about Kim's failed marriage to Kris Humphries and touched on Kendall's feelings after the Pepsi ad backlash.
Each of the Kardashians posted on social-media to give thanks to the magazine for giving them the cover, but it was Kendall's use of a darker skinned emoji that led some fans to call her out. "Sister power...girl power," the post read.

"Y'all are not black. Next time use a white emoji," one person tweeted, while another pointedly urged Kendall to "stop f***ing up": "Kendall & Kylie are worst of the Jenners & Kardashians. REALLY KENDALL?! You're white. Not black. Use the correct emoji. Stop f-cking up."

All The Times Kendall Jenner's Midriff Gave Us The Balls To Try It Ourselves
While this hasn't been the first time Kendall has landed herself in hot water in recent months, a group of fans insisted that Kendall didn't mean any offense by the emoji and argued that everyone should focus on more important issues.
"People are mad bc Kendall Jenner used a specific colored fist emoji.............. I can't with the internet today," one person responded, as another said: "People are ACTUALLY mad about the COLOUR of the emoji Kendall Jenner used. Surely there's more important things to be angry about?"

As for Kendall, she hasn't taken down the initial post and - much like her silence after the Pepsi advert - hasn't made any public comment on the backlash. We'll keep you updated if anything changes.
