Kendall Jenner is no stranger to a bit of online controversy. From poorly planned Pepsi ads to more than her fair share of cultural appropriation claims, to some pretty outrageous outfits, Kendall is basically never out of the headlines.
But now, she has caused a stir amongst her fans for her latest swimwear choice, which has left very little to the imagination...
Kendall Jenner is one of the most recognizable faces in the modeling industry.
But she's also part of one of the most famous families in the world.
via: GettyYou know who we're talking about... the Kardashians. Kendall has had an early introduction to fame and fortune, featuring on their reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, since she was barely even a teen.
But, now, the star mainly focuses on her booming modeling ventures.
But the star has managed to whip up quite a lot of controversy over the years.
For example, does anyone remember that Pepsi commerical?In 2017, the world watched, appalled, as Kendall Jenner brought a social justice protest to an end with one simple act - handing the police officer a can of Pepsi. As problematic goes, this was definitely up there.
The ill-judged ad faced worldwide criticism, and rightly so.The controversial commercial, which was promptly pulled following the backlash, insinuated that all the problems could be brought to a harmonious end with a can of the sugary soda - or, at least, that's the logic that we were presented with. But in a world wherein these are real issues affecting real people, the ad just appeared to distastefully trivialize the demonstrations fighting for good causes such as Black Lives Matter.
Of course, many viewers didn't take kindly to the commercial.
via: TwitterThe internet was in uproar after viewing the commercial, with many people shocked at the mere suggestion that we can put our differences aside over a can of Pepsi.
And, for her participation, Jenner paid the price.
Ryan Seacrest Productions/NBCBoth Kendall and Pepsi apologized for the ad, but it looked like, as far as countless people online were concerned, the damage had already been done. Soon after, Kendall addressed the issue further on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, where viewers watched her get emotional over the backlash, telling older sister Kim: “It feels like my life is over."
But, sadly, this wasn't her only brush with controversy.
GettyThe supermodel has hit the headlines multiple times because of her hair. Now, you may be thinking "hair is just hair, how can it possibly be problematic?" Well, it can be when you consider cultural appropriation - aka the adoption of elements of one culture by members of another culture, which can often spark controversy when a socially dominant culture takes from a disadvantaged minority culture.
In 2016, the twenty-three-year-old found herself at the center of a cultural appropriation scandal.
via: GettyShe came under fire for being styled in dreadlocks at a Marc Jacobs runway show. The questionable show saw a whole host of mostly white models, including bestie, Gigi Hadid, and, of course, Kendall Jenner herself, donning pastel-colored, wool dreadlocks. And it wouldn't be the last time that Kendall's outfits would cause a stir...
People accused the show of cultural appropriation for not crediting African American culture for inspiring the look.
via: GettyPeople took to Twitter to slam both the designer and the models for the distasteful appropriation of black culture. The designer did apologize but justified his poorly-judged choice by saying that the look was inspired by Harajuku girls, rave culture, and London style in the 1980s. Though many people don't buy it.
So it's safe to say...
And, being one of the most famous models in the world...
And if there's one thing Kendall loves to wear?
GettyIt's a bikini. So. Many. Bikinis.
And, with her rather lavish lifestyle...

Her outfit leaves little to the imagination...And she playfully zoomed into her behind, showing off the extremely revealing string bikini. Put some clothes on, Kendal! You have your mom on Instagram!
