Double standards: Kylie Jenner’s au-naturel transformation sparks online trolling

Kylie Jenner remains a constant target for relentless trolls

Their level of scrutiny seems to evolve with each phase of her life and personal choices.

From facial enhancements to admitting to getting lip fillers, the Kardashian/Jenner clan has faced constant judgement online. 

The recent online hate, however, is showing a troubling shift with the trolling trend.

Kylie was once criticised for denying lip fillers and then faced a new wave of backlash after confessing to cosmetic procedures in an interview. 

Her most recent appearance at the Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2024 show has brought on an onslaught of abuse for now being…. too natural?


The 26-year-old was seen embracing a more pared back look, but the same trolls who once berated her for cosmetic procedures are now criticising her for a seemingly “aged” appearance. 

The online criticism is flooding in with comments like, “ask your surgeon for a refund,” showing a sudden shift from criticising enhancements to berating her for choosing a more natural look. 

Some have said: “We’re seeing in real time what long-term filler usage does as you age,” and a stream of comments echoes this sentiment. 

Yet, despite the negativity, Kylie’s fans have been rallying to her defense. 

Comments emphasising the normalcy of her appearance and praising her ageing process like “fine wine” stand in stark contrast to the harsh criticisms. 

This latest saga shows the fickle nature of online judgement and how societal expectations can warp people’s perception, leaving celebrities like Kylie Jenner caught in the crossfire of cruel public opinions.
