Even models have to deal with bullies!
Reality star-turned-supermodel Kendall Jenner, who rocked the runway for several high-profile designers at New York Fashion Week this year, was the subject of mean criticism from fellow models Lexi Boling and Binx Walton.
When Vogue Germany posted a backstage photo of Kendall to its Instagram account, Lexi Boling commented, “She’s never looked better!” accompanied by a crying-with-laughter emoticon. She also tagged Binx, who chimed in with the same image and the words, “That’s f—ed up.”

Both comments have since been removed, and Lexi apologized for her behavior in an interview with E! News.
The model said she “wasn’t thinking and made a silly comment,” adding: “Kendall’s had a killer NYFW. A big congrats to her!” But Lexi posed with Kendall backstage not long before she made the comment — what gives?
Binx hasn’t apologized or publicly commented about her role in the debacle.
Meanwhile, Kendall doesn’t seem to be letting the criticism bother her. She’s posted only glamorous snaps of New York Fashion Week to her Instagram, including one of a hotel room packed with bouquets of roses. It must be nice to be a supermodel!
