Kendall Jenner has tweeted her response to an image of her that has gone viral on social media in the last few days, purporting to show her being caught faking participation in a Black Lives Matter protest.

The image appears to be a screenshot of a picture shared on Kendall's Facebook page showing her dressed head-to-toe in black, wearing a face mask and holding up a sign that says "black lives matter" - although the sign doesn't appear in the shadow behind her, suggesting the sign was photoshopped into the image.

The image has been doing the rounds on social media in recent days, with people believing that Kendall had been caught out faking involvement in the protests, in a picture she shared to her own social media. But Kendall has now tweeted a response to the image saying that the picture was photoshopped and also that she did not share it from any of her own social media accounts.

She retweeted an account that had shared the image along with the caption "What's missing from Kendall Jenner's shadow?", with her own caption stating, "this is photoshopped by someone. i DID NOT post this. [sic]."

The comments on her response were mixed, with some people sending supportive messages and others referencing the out of touch Pepsi advert that Kendall came under fire for in 2017.
