Ugggghhhhhh! I am officially sick and tired of being sick and tired of everybody…and this new #KylieJennerChallenge isn’t helping things…at all. So a while ago, I wrote a story about how Kylie Jenner’s lips were being called the “newest trend” and how I thought that was incredibly stupid. Full lips are NOT a trend, they are a physical characteristic of PEOPLE who happen to be mostly Black. I think it’s pretty obvious why that’s offensive.
When allegations of plastic surgery surfaced, Kylie denied going under the knife, and eventually we learned that Kylie actually uses makeup sorcery to get the juicy lips she’s been flaunting around town. As time went on, I was able to accept Kylie’s drawn on lips. After thinking about it, I couldn’t really blame the girl. Who wouldn’t want full lips? They’re gorge. But what I DO have a problem with is this new #KylieJennerChallenge that’s taken the internet by storm. Check out these failed attempts at getting “the look.”

Then of course, Black women clap back.

So basically…I’m in a weird place right now, because I don’t know who to blame. Do I blame the Kardashian clan? Do I blame Ryan Seacrest? Do I blame the media? Do I blame these fools’ parents? Or do I blame their little simple asses for doing this challenge? I don’t know who to blame right now, so I’m just going to log off. But for the record, this challenge really makes me hate everyone…a lot. Are we all really this stupid? What WON’T we do? Are we all just a bunch of sheep? Is common sense getting less and less common? I have questions…but I’m fairly certain I won’t be getting any answers, so I’m going to take a nap. Night!
