Kylie Jenner, the 17-year-old reality star and daughter of Caitlyn — formerly known as Bruce — Jenner, is accustomed even at her young age to being mobbed by fans and paparazzi pretty much wherever she shows her face in public. But a close encounter with an aggressive fan who made an inappropriate remark left her cursing the man out with an expletive.
The young Jenner sister is also no stranger to putting the intimate details of her daily life on display. Let’s face it — no one would know who she was if not for her part on the reality show, Keeping Up With Kardashians.
So one might think that some jerk sticking a cell phone camera in her face wouldn’t be any big deal to the teenage entrepreneur who, just the night before the Saturday incident, appeared in Miami, Florida, hawking a new line of designer lollipops with her 19-year-old aspiring model sister, Kendall Jenner.
The two sisters arrived back in Southern California on Saturday, and immediately went out in Beverly Hills to pick up some Father’s Day gifts for their dad, whose recent gender transition from male to female has made her a national icon. And they attracted all the usual attention, especially as both of the sisters appeared wearing skin tight spandex.
On her way back to her vehicle, Kylie — keeping her eyes forward — was approached by one male bystander who pushed his cell phone just inches from her face and accompanied the intrusion with a sexually suggestive remark.
The video somehow ended up on a Kardashian fan Instagram page, and it contains profanity, but may be viewed at this link.
The “fan” not only misidentifies the Jenner sister as “Kendall,” he repeatedly asks her in the video, “What that mouth do?”
After a few repeats of the sexually harassing taunt, Kylie Jenner tells the man, “Get the f*** out of my face.”
The same fan page also posted photos showing just how close the man with the cell phone had positioned himself to Kylie Jenner.
“This is how close this guy stands and the phones literally on her face and he finds this funny,” the fan site said. “Some find Kylie rude telling him to f*** off but this is what they need to see.”
But some other fans argued on social media that for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, the type of harassment seen in the video is simply an occupational hazard.
“No she’s rude. She’s in the public eye and she has many young fans that follow her she should know better!” wrote one Kylie Jenner fan.
