Model Kendall Jenner has now responded to claims she photoshopped an image of herself holding a fake Black Lives Matter sign.
The photograph, which looked like a screenshot from the model’s Facebook page, began circulating on social media this week. It showed the star wearing a face mask and standing in front of a black sports car while holding the sign above her head, writes Elle.
People noticed that the photo didn’t seem real as the sign is not visible in her shadow on the ground. They suggested that the 24-year-old had edited it herself as protests continue around the world in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

However, Jenner responded to the backlash and clarified that the image had not come from her. Taking to Twitter on Saturday, she said, ‘This is photoshopped by someone. I DID NOT post this.’
Many defended the star and managed to uncover the original photo, which shows her without the face mask and holding a water bottle, not a sign, in the air.
