AceShowbiz - Kendall Jenner is still smarting from the abuse she received online for attending the 2018 Golden Globe Awards amid an acne break-out.
The model and reality TV star tells Allure magazine she felt she had to attend the prizegiving and so staying at home, tending to her zit problem wasn't an option - but she didn't expect her complexion issues to become a talking point.
"I mean, it's something that I look at myself in the mirror every day and see," the 23-year-old tells the publication. "I don't want it there, but you have to deal with what you have right in front of you, and I had to deal with it.

"It was probably a once in a lifetime thing for me to go to the Golden Globes. I don't know if I'll ever go again 'cause that's not usually my event to go to. And so I went and I was super excited about it, and I'm not gonna let something so little as acne stop me."
"I was feeling good about myself, and then when people say mean things I'm like, 'I know I have a zit. I know I'm breaking out. You guys don't have to keep pointing it out. I obviously see that, but let me live!".
Kendall insists she's not as thick skinned as people think she is and "cries endlessly for days" when critics are mean to her.
"I've had to become stronger through it," she explains. "I mean, don't get me wrong, I am not superhuman. I definitely feel, and the things people say online are very hurtful. You also just have to live your life and not pay attention to it. I think it can get pretty unhealthy if you really are deep in it and paying attention to it all the time. I think that that's what can really mess you up."
