AceShowbiz - Kylie Jenner is facing online backlash. The founder of Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin has been mocked on social media for being unhygienic while "creating" new makeup in the laboratory.
Making use of her Instagram account on Wednesday, August 3, "The Kardashians" star uploaded a series of pictures that saw her all glammed up in a lab coat while posing for photos at her company's facility. "In the lab creating new magic for you guys [love emoji] better than ever," the beauty mogul captioned her post.
In the images, Kylie could be seen wearing no gloves to cover her well-manicured fingers while handling various lab materials. The former star of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" also let her long dark hair loose.
Instead of praising her, many social media critics mocked the maskless 24-year-old star, insisting that she violated the sanitation protocols at the lab. "dont u suppose to wear gloves, mask and the hair net thingy???" one person commented on the post. The comment has since been liked nearly 12,000 times. Another urged her to "wear a hair cap."
A third quipped, "Going to find hair in the make up," while a fourth noted, "I just see so many lab rules not being followed." Someone else slammed her, "You ain't doin shii take that lab coat off. The actual scientist whose lab coat you have on standing right out of frame." A separate person mocked her caption as writing, "In the lab creating the new pandemic."
Emmy-winning makeup artist and cosmetic developer Kevin James Bennett echoed the naysayers' sentiments before blasting Kylie for "gaslighting" her followers. "Working with cosmetic manufacturers (and their labs) is part of my job. I have very short hair, and I've NEVER been allowed into the lab without a hair net…AND GLOVES," he wrote on his page.
Kevin also demanded to know "what ignorant lab let [Kylie] touch things without following proper sanitation protocols?" The makeup expert added, "Folks, this is not the way we create cosmetics and misrepresents how our industry works. Credible manufacturers follow STRICT sanitation protocols to protect you."
