Kendall Jenner might've been sharing Instagram pictures to her grid all weekend, but why aren't fans allowed to comment right now?

The Keeping Up With The Kardashian star launched her tequila brand, 818, over the weekend with a massive party. There were branded photo opportunities, unlimited drinks and a major celebrity guest list, including Justin Bieber and Travis Scott.

Despite giving her 165million followers an insight into the big-time party on her grid, sharing a series of photos over the weekend, the posts have only racked up 18 comments between them.

This is because Kendall has turned off the commenting option for everyone except the people she follows, so only close friends and the Kardashian-Jenners are able to.

But why? It might have something to do with the backlash Kendall has received for launching her own brand of tequila. Some critics claimed she was appropriating Mexican culture and benefitting from the time-intensive harvesting process, while also taking the shine away from local brands.

Other fans jumped to Kendall's defence, though, insisting the likes of George Clooney, who also has his own tequila brand Casamigos, didn't face the same backlash. They've also mentioned that it's not public knowledge how Kendall might be supporting those in the supply chain behind the scenes.
