Kylie Jenner took to Twitter on Thursday night to address an extremely personal blog post that went live on her app. The post, written in the first person, revealed intimate details about Kylie's relationship with her boyfriend Tyga. In a series of tweets, though, the teenage cosmetics mogul told her fans that she did not write or approve the blog post before it went live on her app. As a direct result of this mishap, Kylie has decided she won't be posting on her app anymore.
"I won't be posting personally on my app anymore," Kylie decided, writing that "a post went up today quoting something that I NEVER EVER said or saw. A very personal post that I would never ever approve."
Kylie seems really upset about the whole thing, so it's no surprise that the post was deleted from her app ASAP. But because this is the internet we're talking about, a screenshot of the unapproved content was circulated by a fan. According to Seventeen, the screenshot showed that the post included a list of 7 things Kylie "supposedly did to show her appreciation for Tyga." It's reported that the list included things like re-creating Tyga's favorite restaurant meal at home, a tip about sex, and baking him cookies for no reason. We can totally see why this would upset Kylie. Whether these are things Kylie believes in or not, it's a pretty gross violation of her privacy. Especially because she didn't even right the post herself.
Kylie also addressed the fact that blogs written in the first person were going live on her app even though she wasn't actually writing them. While some fans were probably hurt or surprised by this fact, it's actually not uncommon. Kylie is pretty busy if you haven't noticed. She stars on her family's E! reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, has her own cosmetics business, her own merch shop, and runs a few different clothing lines with her big sister Kendall Jenner. And that's just SOME of what Kylie gets up to on a regular basis. Forbes didn't put her on their 30 Under 30 list for no reason. It's normal (and a smart business decision) for the 19-year-old entrepreneur to hire an editorial staff to help keep her app up to date and running smoothly. Hopefully, though, in the future there aren't any more blunders like this one.
Kylie loves her fans and reassured them that she will do her best to find a way to update her app that makes everybody happy. She won't be posting personally anymore (or having her staff post personally for her), but we're sure she'll find a way to make it as Kylie-esque as possible.
After posting an unapproved, personal post about Kylie Jenner's private relationship with her boyfriend Tyga, The Kylie App tech team posted a statement apologizing for the incident. Their statement reads:
To Kylie's Fans:
This morning, a drafted article was inadvertently posted for a short period of time on Kylie's app. This was a draft that was not in Kylie's words, was not Kylie's idea, and had not been sent to her for approval. We'd like to sincerely apologize to Kylie for this mistake and the fans because it was never our intention to misrepresent Kylie and Kylie's voice. We deeply regret that this happened and will work hard to ensure that this never happens again.
The App Team
Kylie has yet to respond to the team's apology.
