Kylie Jenner has come under fire for posing naked in fake blood during a “disturbing” photoshoot. According to some KUWTK fans, the blood in the photographs marketing her new Halloween-themed makeup collection was too “real” and was “triggering” for women.
In the photographs, Kylie was bathed in synthetic blood, which coated her from head to toe in stains. Wrapping her arms over her torso, she offered a solemn face to the camera as she sat on a white floor surrounded by pools of “blood.”
As one critic put it: “I’m a mother of two baby girls, so for me it was disturbing seeing this, but like I said, it’s just my opinion which obviously doesn’t matter.”
“I’m a nurse and worked in IVF; I saw so many women go through miscarriages etc. The blood looks so real, and knowing she’s pregnant makes it weird but yeah, just my opinion.”
Another continued: “It’s crazy to normalize such a thing, especially when you think about women who actually end up like this in tragic events.”
A third posted: “I felt exactly the same. Plus, it’s triggering.”
Some fans supported Kylie’s photos, which they described as “art,” with one user writing: “For some, it is very traumatic, and for others, it is art. Let’s agree to disagree and just not go back and forth.”
Kylie’s new “spooky” cosmetics line inspired by the horror film Nightmare on Elm Street has gotten mixed reviews. Freddy Krueger is the heinous protagonist of 1984’s legendary horror film A Nightmare on Elm Street, stalking and murdering victims in their dreams.
Following weeks of fan speculation, the young mom revealed that she was pregnant with her second child in September. She is already the mother of three-year-old Stormi, whom she shares with her 30-year-old boyfriend, Travis Scott.
Kylie announced her pregnancy with a video that included footage from a visit to the doctor with Travis and their daughter for an ultrasound. Later in the clip, the couple stunned momager and family matriarch Kris Jenner by presenting her with an ultrasound shot.
