Reality TV star and style entrepreneur, Kylie Jenner has always managed to keep her name on the lips of many. From her styled outfits to the drama that comes with the Kardashian-Jenner name, the youngest of the reality family star has managed to always get her fans and followers talking about her.
While Kylie may no longer be a billionaire (as reported by Forbes), her influence in fashion and style goes a long way to speak for her. On Twitter, the reality star is trending over photos of an outfit she wore and shared on Instagram without tagging the creators of the outfit – Black-owned company, LoudBrand Studios.
While the news made its way to Nigeria Twitter trends, a few persons have reacted to the style entrepreneur’s failure to tag those responsible for creating the outfit. Some applauded Kylie for wearing the dress even without tagging the creators while other dragged her for not tagging them.
So kylie is trending cos she didn’t tag someone but not when she didn’t pay Bangladeshi workers? I see how it works 😶

This whole Kylie Jenner situation is very silly. You’ve added controversy to the situation when we should’ve put this effort into uplifting and congratulating the brand. Kylie did not have to tag them it’s really quite simple

I’m sure Kylie Jenner gets the most likes on Instagram. Her tagging fee is probably higher than the population in Jamaica

Let’s address Kylie tagging Loudbrand Studios: Morally Kylie should tag. Legally she is not obligated to tag. This isn’t paid for content so Kylie is not obligated to tag.

Some Twitter users pointed out that the stylist bought the outfit just like anyone would and isn’t obligated to tag them in her post, stressing that Kylie wearing the outfit alone was enough publicity for the brand.
Fam just Kylie wearing it alone is a blessing. Pls don’t destroy things for the designer by doing the most

Don’t make this about the buy black movement cause that’s not what we stand for. If Kylie paid for the dress she isn’t OBLIGATED to tag them. https://t.co/UpNzFDyFsX

Others berated users who specifically pointed out that one of the reasons Kylie may be refused to tag the brand who created the outfit is because it is a black-owned brand. The controversy may have brought fortune to the brand as reports indicate that their stocks were sold out following the controversy that started after the reality star wore the outfit.

Taking to the microblogging platform, the brand also thanked Kylie for wearing their outfit, despite not tagging them.
