According to Kendall and Kylie Jenner, their company did in fact pay their factory workers. Yep, the sisters just denied accusations that their joint fashion line, Kendall + Kylie, wasn’t giving its employees a salary before the coronavirus pandemic.
For those who missed it, Instagram account Diet Prada shared a now-deleted lengthy post from Remake — a non-profit against exploitation in fashion — earlier this week, where they claimed that the reality stars weren’t paying their factory workers before it was shut down due to the virus.
“The women who make our clothes have been placed in the most vulnerable situation. No longer receiving pay, despite having already done the work, these women are quite literally at risk of starving to death,” the post read.
But now, a representative for Kylie has cleared the air once and for all and shut these rumors down.
“The Kendall + Kylie brand is owned by Canada Inc. The brand does not produce in Bangladesh. So [these allegations are] not accurate,” they told Teen Vogue.
As fans know, these claims came just days after the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars announced that they were teaming up for a brand new makeup line! Yep, the Kendall x Kylie Collection will hit stores on Friday, June 26, and we can’t wait.
So, what products can you expect? Well, the new line includes a sister-themed eyeshadow palette that will have shades called “I’m Telling Mom,” “Love You Sister,” “Name A More Iconic Duo,” and more. Plus, there will also be a lip kit available for purchase, in the shade “Sister Sister,” along with a High Gloss lip gloss. Oh, and did we mention that there will also be some never-before-seen products as well, like a three face sticks, gold eye gloss and a blotting cream.
“We have been dreaming this up for quite some time so I hope you guys love it!” Kylie captioned the promotional video for the line on Instagram.
