Kendall Jenner Twitter: Model Faces Backlash Due To Fashion Icon Of The Decade Honor [VIDEO]

Close

Kendall Jenner is set to receive the Fashion Icon of the Decade Award at the 2017 Fashion Media Awards on September 8 and apparently, Twitter isn't happy about the news.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Jenner would be given the award at the Daily Front Row event and quickly, social media blasted the outlet for naming the 21-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star with the honor, mainly due to the fact that she's only been modeling for five years and the award is supposed to represent someone who has been an icon in the fashion world for 10 years.

“Full offense but Kendall is such a bland/boring model & is no where near being an 'icon' for fashion…at all,” one person wrote, according to a report by Hollywood Life on August 30. “This is so undeserved.”

“Awarding Kendall Jenner with fashion icon of the decade is like awarding Oscar Pistorius with husband of the decade,” another person added, citing Pistorius' alleged murder of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

In addition to the backlash, Jenner has also received plenty of congratulatory messages from her peers, including a message from stylist Rachel Zoe.

“This is pretty major…congrats @KendallJenner,” she tweeted.
