Kylie Jenner doesn’t think being called a prostitute is an insult, but don’t tell her that she looks like a 14-year-old!
The Keeping Up With the Kardashian star is a big fan of social media, but some of her followers aren’t fans of her sexy selfies. Luckily, 19-year-old Kylie has developed a thick skin, and she’s becoming a pro at clapping back at her cruelest critics. She recently got the chance to show off her commendable comeback skills when one of her Twitter followers tried to insult her by tweeting that she looks like an underage sex worker.
“@KylieJenner looks like a 14-year-old prostitute,” the Twitter user wrote, as reported by E! News.
However, Kylie Jenner informed the hater that she doesn’t see anything wrong having a sexy sense of style — she’s not going to shed any tears if one of her paparazzi pictures pops up on Fashion Police‘s “Starlet or Streetwalker” segment.
“Idk I feel like I look like a 19 year old prostitute,” Jenner tweeted in response to the Twitter critic’s weak attempt at slut-shaming her.
Some of Kylie’s more sympathetic Twitter followers were impressed by her humorous response to the hater, and one fan reassured her that she looks like a “very classy prostitute.”

Kylie Jenner’s critics may be out in full force because she recently shared a sexy mirror selfie that’s getting a lot of attention. She’s wearing a lacy thong in the photo, which Entertainment Tonight describes as an “insane underwear selfie.” Kylie turned off comments on the Instagram post, so her haters had to go elsewhere (like to her Twitter page) if they wanted to make nasty remarks about the picture.
While Kylie can sometimes laugh off the cruel comments she reads on social media, she does admit that dealing with internet trolls on a daily basis has taken its toll on her. As Closer reports, Kylie has even confessed that her bullies have made her cry.
“Even I at times get affected by it, I breakdown, I hide, I cry. It’s resulted in a lot of anxiety for me that I’ve never had to deal with before ever [sic],” Kylie revealed in a 2015 Instagram post. “My every move has been documented for the whole world and it’s been a nightmare trying to find myself through all of this. And I’ve absolutely lost a part of myself.”
Kylie’s experiences with cyber-bullying inspired her to launch the #IAmMoreThan campaign, a social media movement aimed at empowering victims of bullying. As TODAY reports, Kylie used her celebrity to spread the stories of others who have been bullied. These inspirational victims shared advice on how to deal with bullies, and they explained how they maintain their positive outlooks on life in the face of so much negativity.
Unfortunately, Kylie Jenner believes that she’s fighting a losing battle when it comes to her own bullies. According to the teen, being called a “14-year-old prostitute” and worse is just a part of being a young social media star with millions of followers.
“For me, this is expected, it comes with the territory,” Kylie wrote.
Kylie Jenner has been dealing with bullies since she was a young child, and she’s learned that there’s one very important thing a victim should remember whenever someone is putting them down for being different. As Hollywood Life reports, Kylie shared her advice in a series of Snapchat videos.
“I’ve been bullied since I’ve been nine… from the whole world, it feels like sometimes,” Kylie said. “I think I’ve done a good job at handing all this, but there’s bullies everywhere. So this is just a little late Snapchat to tell whoever has their own bullies that the only opinion that really matters is yours and to never change.”
In other words, bullies can say what they want to say about Kylie Jenner, but she’s going to keep doing her — if she wants to post a thong photo, their words aren’t going to stop her from sharing that sexy selfie.
