Naomi Campbell Shades Kendall Jenner’s Modeling Industry Comment

In two simple, but succinct words, Naomi Campbell dismissed Kendall Jenner’s controversial comments about her modeling industry peers. “Next question,” Campbell pointedly told Andy Cohen on his show “Watch What Happens Live” this week, when he asked Campbell about Kendall’s comments.

In case you’re not up to speed, here’s the gist: Kendall Jenner became a target after her interview with Love magazine when viral. In it, she discusses how she’s able to select which fashion shows and jobs she wants to book, whereas her modeling peers have to take any job that comes their way.

Kendall’s exact words were, “Since the beginning we’ve been super selective about what shows I would do … I was never one of those girls who would do like 30 shows a season or whatever the fuck those girls do.” She adds, “More power to ’em. But I had a million jobs, not only catwalks but everything else. The whole combination was very overwhelming and I started to freak out a little bit and needed to take a step back.”

The backlash was strong. Many people, models and non-models alike, took Jenner to task for her comments, labeling them privileged and disrespectful, including another supermodel legend: Carol Alt. And now, Naomi Campbell is apparently in that camp as well.

Next question.
