Kendall Jenner May Be Scamming Millions With Proactiv Ads

Kendall Jenner May Be Scamming Millions With Proactiv Ads

Thank you for sharing your brave story.


A few days ago, Twitter buzzed with the news that Kendall Jenner would be revealing something about herself that would help many people. I did not really take the news seriously, because the Kardashian/Jenners are known for making everything dramatic, but I was still curious as to what the reveal would be. Some Twitter users said it could be Kendall's coming out since some speculate her to be part of the LGBT community. Others thought she might be joining the #MeToo movement.

Overall, people genuinely believed what she would say would be important and of value. Her mother, Kris Jenner even went online to talk about how proud she was of her daughter for coming forth and telling the world about something important.

Shortly after the advertisements for her announcement came out, she made a commercial talking about how bad her skin used to be and how the brand Proactiv, helped clear her face. I have many issues with this announcement. A rich girl telling the world she used to have acne is not news.

Kendall Jenner is part of one of the richest families in the world, do you really think she didn't have expensive facials and dermatologists helping her clear her skin? I think it is wrong for her to go and be the face of a product that she most likely never used, or used while also investing millions on other products for her skin.

I don't understand why Kendall thinks her acne days will make anyone else feel better about their own skin. She is a model, she has people who will make her look perfect no matter what. Most of us don't even have access to high-end makeup that actually covers blemishes. Also, most people experience having acne in their lives, so her telling the world about hers does not make her special. It's crazy to think that her most traumatic experience was having bad skin for some time in her life.

I do believe that everyone has a different reality and that maybe acne was a huge deal to her, but I don't think what she is doing is right by any means. She knows she has an audience who will be blinded by her stardom and will go buy Proactiv. Some people look up to her and actually trust what she says. This is horrible because people with very bad skin often cannot be helped by these products alone, and require medications such as Acutane to help their skin.

Kendall should not be advertising a product that she herself most likely did not use. I believe money blinds people every day and they end up doing things that will hurt others just so they can get a paycheck. I hope she realizes that what she is doing is wrong and could hurt the pockets and the health of millions of young impressionable fans.

If You Are Excusing Chris Brown's Hateful Actions, You Should Be In The Cell Next To Him

Stop excusing violence towards women just because you think a guy makes good music.


In not-so-surprising news, Chris Brown was recently detained in Paris after a woman accused him of rape. Why am I saying "not-so-surprising," you may ask? Because this isn't the first time that Chris Brown has been proven to be a violent threat towards women.

It all began in 2009 when he assaulted Rihanna when the two were in a relationship.

He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to five years of probation and 1,400 hours of community service and counseling.

But it didn't end there.

One of his ex-girlfriends, model Karrueche Tran, requested a five-year restraining order against Brown in 2017. In August of 2016, he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after a woman called the police and reported that Brown had threatened her.

What happened as a result? You'd think surely someone with such a history of violence in general, not even just toward women, would receive some severe punishment? Surely they wouldn't still have a popular music career?

And that's where you'd be wrong. Aside from spending a few days in prison, some community service hours, restraining orders, counseling, and a good chunk of bail money, nothing severe seems to happen to Chris Brown despite countless acts of violence towards both men and women.

There's no doubt that his affluent wealth as a celebrity contributes to dodging more severe legal action. But as for his continued popularity as an artist in 2019, how can we excuse that?

Because just like Chris Brown, his fans just don't care about women.

Because he makes "good music" that reminds you of your childhood, like "Kiss Kiss." Because with Rihanna, it "happened so long ago" and he's "changed since then." Because one wrong thing in the past shouldn't define his entire future. Right?

Except that's not the case. Chris Brown has abused women time and time again, and instead of caring, his fans decide to stream "Freaky Friday" and applaud a potential collab with Drake. No matter how many times his mugshot appears in the news, no one really cares.

French police haven't released the name of the woman who accused Brown of rape and assault, and they shouldn't have to to get people to care or believe that it happened.

The women who have been abused by Chris Brown throughout the past decade are strong, powerful, and deserve to be believed.

They deserve more than millions of people constantly defending the man that hurt them, the man that took so much from them.

After the premiere of the documentary about R. Kelly and his long history of sexual abuse allegations, people were shocked, disgusted, and angry. Angry that these things happened for so long and without anyone acknowledging it despite some knowing, at least to some extent. So, why isn't that happening here?

Why aren't people angrier at Chris Brown? Why isn't his label dropping him, just like R. Kelly's did to him? Why is there a certain amount of abuse that men can inflict on women that is acceptable? What R. Kelly did to so many women is absolutely disgusting, but we shouldn't wait until that point to be outraged.

Chris Brown has been a continued threat to women for an entire decade.

Hell, he's been a threat to everyone for a decade. How many more women does he have to hurt or be accused of hurting for you to start caring? At what point will his fans draw the line and start treating women as people who deserve better and aren't just someone they think is lying to hurt their favorite artist?

If you continue to excuse Chris Brown's repeated misogynistic violence, you're part of the problem.

We Weren't There, We Need To Stop Assuming Chris Brown Is Automatically Guilty

I'm pretty sure the saying is "innocent until proven guilty," not "guilty until proven innocent."


As we've all heard by now, Chris Brown was arrested for rape allegations recently while in Paris. It's also been reported that he has been released from police custody, and he has spoken out denying that he was involved.

Now, let me start by saying that I'm not defending Chris Brown. I'm not going to say that he did or didn't do it. Because who am I to make that decision? I wasn't there so I don't know the COMPLETE truth. The only people who truly know what happened are the few people that were in the hotel room on the night of the alleged incident.

I also want to point out that I am completely aware of Brown's criminal history. I remember his issues with Rihanna back in 2009, his violent run-in with a photographer in 2017, etc. I'm aware of his criminal history.

But does that automatically mean that he is guilty?

No, it doesn't. The saying is "innocent until proven guilty," not the other way around. In today's day and age, as soon as allegations go public, everyone automatically believes them. Not everything that is said and published is true.

I'm not in any way calling this woman a liar because I don't know her or what happened in that hotel room, but I'm also not going to call Chris Brown a rapist until it is PROVEN that he did it.

If he actually did what he is being accused of, then yes, lock him up, make him pay for his crimes. But as much as no one wants to hear it, there are people out there who will accuse celebrities of things just because they are a celebrity.

Again, I'm not saying that is what this woman is doing, but society doesn't know what happened that night. I don't know what happened that night. The media doesn't know what happened that night. You don't know what happened that night. Only the people in that hotel room know what truly happened that night. I just don't think we should bash him until we know that Chris Brown did this.

Remember, innocent until proven guilty. That's how it's supposed to be.
