Woke mob accuses Kendall Jenner of racist cultural appropriation of Mexican migrants in tequila video ad
After facing the ire of the leftist woke mob for announcing her tequila business endeavor, Kendall Jenner is facing a renewed onslaught of criticism over new video advertisements for the brand.
Jenner is being branded a racist guilty of cultural appropriation for riding a horse, sipping her tequila in a truck, and wearing a cotton shirt, jeans, and a cowboy hat.
Here’s one of the video ads from the brand’s Instagram page:
Detractors took to social media to blast Jenner for appropriating “chic migrant worker” fashion.
“YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME…..leave it to Kendall to be as tone deaf as possible, this is so offensive,” tweeted one critic.

“Modeling that chic migrant worker look for her tequila brand, watch her cry and say she didn’t know later on for the 100th time,” they added.
“Kendall jenner can go to hell with this blatant explotation of the stereotypes of indigenous women from mexico,” claimed another detractor.

“Kendall Jenner coming out with her ‘own’ tequila is ultimate modern day colonizer vibes,” read another tweet.
“Why can’t Kendall Jenner just show up as her white girl self to sell Tequila?! Why does she have to go and put on the braids, and wear the sombrero,” said another critic.
Others defended Jenner, saying that she didn’t do anything worse than other celebrities who weren’t as criticized for launching their own tequila brands.
Jenner faced similar accusations when she announced her tequila endeavor in February. Some were even angry that the “818” name of the tequila referred not to anything Mexican, but the area code for her hometown in Southern California.
