89Oh, This Is Appropriate: 14-Year-Old Kendall Jenner’s Bikini Photo Shoot

We had a Kardashian ban on this site for a couple years. It’s eroded over the past year, as new writers have come and gone and I found myself too busy to send email reprimands when they ran Kardashian pieces. I never really talked about why, but now seems as appropriate a time as any.

In October 2007, I ran this piece. It contained a photo of Kendall and Kylie Jenner posing on the red carpet for the viewing party for Keeping Up with the Kardashians. There was some veiled reference to how I looked forward to the days they behaved like their older sisters, but there was nothing especially inflammatory about the piece. It was a photo of two girls on a red carpet. At a press event. I said they were “cute.”

Someone left a comment on the piece containing Kylie and Kendall’s actual phone number. I didn’t know this — I don’t read all the comments on this site, as there are many, many comments left daily, on pieces spanning the 4+ years of its existence. Kylie and Kendall began receiving phone calls in the middle of the night, and the Kardashian family traced it back to the comment left on this blog. I had no idea any of this was going on.

One morning, I received a phone call from a blocked number. Stupidly, I answered. It was the Kardashian’s rep — or perhaps a lawyer, I can’t remember at this point — calling to tell me about the comment with the phone number. Also, he didn’t like the piece I’d written and he said something about how I was exploiting young girls. (Young girls who were posing on a red carpet.) I told him I didn’t want to cause the girls any trouble, and I removed the comment containing the phone number.

He called again, an hour later. There were other comments on the post (the post contained hundreds of comments at that point — they’ve all been deleted since) where people were discussing their overtly sexual fantasies about these young girls. Their mother, he explained, was very upset. Again, I was unaware these comments were present, and I removed all comments of a sexual nature from that post.

I will note that the Digital Millenium Copyright Act makes clear that the owner of a website is not legally responsible for comments left on it. I was under no obligation to remove these comments, and I knew that, but it was clearly the right thing to do under the circumstances.

Then he called again, a couple of hours later. There were other comments on the post, comments that spoke ill of the adult Kardashians, and Kris Jenner was upset about those, too. He wanted those removed. I told him that, while I didn’t mind removing the sexual comments about the little girls, I felt that the comments about the older Kardashians could stay. At this point he became very upset. He called again and again. He was calling every fifteen minutes. I didn’t answer. He left long-winded, angry messages. He went through every post on my site that contained any mention of any Kardashian and left detailed instructions as to how it needed to be changed. I did not comply.

I finally answered one of his calls. His voice was full of condescension. He asked how old I was. I was 25 at the time and I told him that.

“Oh, you’re very young.”

“Sasha,” he said — but he may as well have said ‘Little Girl’ — “you don’t understand what you’re dealing with here. We will destroy you in court. We are currently in the process of taking down BuddyTV for what they said about the Kardashians. Their site will be off the Internet forever tomorrow. They’ll be bankrupt. Do you want that to happen to you?” (BuddyTV, for the record, is still very much alive, kicking and successful.)

I told him that I didn’t, but that I understood my rights, and I was under no obligation to remove the posts about the adult Kardashians. He listed all the laws I was violating. (These were lies.) He referred back to the post about Kylie and Kendall, and threatened to take me to court on some federal charge of exploiting young girls. Then, at one point, he offered to give me rights to the photos from the Kim Kardashian Playboy shoot in exchange for making the “corrections” to all my blog posts about the Kardashians.

He called hourly. He did this for days. It was insanity. These were obviously public figures — people who had willingly agreed to participate in a television show about their lives, including the lives of their underage daughters — and they still planned to control every facet of the way they were portrayed in the media? And they planned to do this by hurling baseless threats at young women running blogs? It was completely insane.

Eventually the phone calls dropped off, and — surprise! — no one ever took me to court. I decided we didn’t need to cover the Kardashians at all, and we didn’t for a long time.

Today, I received an email from a producer at BuzzMedia imploring me to cover Kim Kardashian’s recent blog post about these bikini photos taken of the now-14-year-old Kendall, who’s apparently an aspiring model.

So, ya know, HERE YA GO. Enjoy the heavy eye makeup, the near-exposed breasts, and the sexual poses of an eighth grader. But let’s be very, very careful not to exploit any young women in the process, okay?

    Such a cute girl, its too bad that her mother isn’t getting her career started the right way. White tank top and jeans with natural make up. Kris is vicariously living through her daughters and its ridiculous. She’s 14 for God’s sake. And on a side note there’s no way that Kim would’ve gone on Playboy if her mother hadn’t encouraged her daughter to strip down to naked for money. What a sell out of a family…I feel sad for them. They’re going to have a rude awakening when they meet their maker and realize that money doesn’t get you to heaven.

    She is Kim Kardashian little sister…what did you expect her to do? A wholesome photo shoot?

  3. Ali says:

    The rep/lawyer = asshole on a power trip. It’s “reality tv” Being trashy is what they DO!

  4. dickie says:

    i wanna fuck her! real hard!

  5. lisalisa says:

    kris is to old for tv herself so how else is she suppose to make a living? after all she gets 10% of what the older girls get and they are over 18. at 14 she is probably most likely getting half of what kendall is making right now for these pics. they consider it, expenses for caring for a minor. if these girls werent money makers where would kris jenner be?? living off of whom..??

  6. umm says:

    wow shes way hotter than you old mummys!!!! 14 is the new 24!!!!!

  7. kim sucks says:

    The whole kardashian family thing is totally messed up. They need to see the real world, a bucnh of losers. There having a 14 year old model in a bikini?? Now thats where the kardashians need help

  8. Fairybomb says:

    Unless the pictures were for a girls magazine like Dolly or Girlfriend to sell swimwear – These are highly inappropriate photos of a 14 year old GIRL, NOT a woman a GIRL…. at that age a girl rarely understands what being sexy really is and sexy isn’t lamb dressed as mutton. How about instead of teaching this young lady that sexy is about a bikini and a beach teach her its about confidence self respect and intelligence. This child has plenty of time to learn instead i feel her childhood has been robbed from her. Very sad the women who should be teaching this are only capable of teaching her how to do a blowave right or whether or not the shoes match. pfft airheads

    This is despicable. The ENTIRE Kardashian/Jenner family should be disgraced. This is their twisted idea of raising a child to be a NO List celebrity. Kim… Awesome Porno. More so props to Ray-J for filming it. Kim shouldn’t have gotten any type of positive publicity for that.
    My question here is the parenting capabilities of these 2 senior citizens who obviously used their lime light thousands of years ago. If this is their idea of “A wholesome family childhood” I feel very sorry for these young girls who I believe are being ROBBED of their essence and having dampers put onto their potential.
    Besides having a porn star (Kim, that’s really the only reason people know you, and you got 3/4 of that from Ray-J) for an older sister, it appears that they have parents who want the same for them. It is a pathetic display of parenting. The 2 “adults” who allowed this should hide their faces in shame. I blame people like you for ruining the youth of the world.

    HAHAHAHA!!

    Seriously, do all you moralising failfucks realise that the average age of catwalk and brochure models (which you all check out to see what clothes you’re gonna buy) is 15 years old. 14 is not at all unusual whatsoever and some fashion models are as young as 12.

    Frankly I wish you’d all get off your high horses and stop victimising this girl. She isn’t doing anything unusual and more than likely you’re all supporting this industry practice through your purchasing choices. Buying clothes you’ve seen on early teens. The only difference: no one told you the age of the models so you didnt care.

    And of course not one shred of evidence produced that this is harmful in any way. Typical kneejerk reaction to early teen sexuality on display as usual.

      Ok look do you REALIZE that you can’t spell right? And we are not talking about a poor beautiful little girl from Belarus living in a one room shack w/ her family. Kris COULD provide more for her daughter’s self esteem then a bikini photo shoot. And what about pushing your 14 year old to be in band, or play a sport. My daughter is 16 and she did modeling for two years until she got tired of being treated like a prop and she knew she had more to offer the world then her pretty face(that was a very proud day for me). My point is, if Kriss was as worried about her daughter as she was making a buck I doubt she would put her child in the particular situation

      • Desiree says:

        I mean even on this page grown ass men on here talking about how bad they want to fuck her. Kriss had a choice and it was obviously to needlessly exploit her daughters for a paycheck. And you are a failfuck for defining that.

        Defending rather
