Kendall Jenner Wears Confederate Flag — Fashion Statement Or Totally Offensive?

Kendall was spotted wearing a Lynard Skynyrd t-shirt on May 10, which also had a confederate flag on it. This racially charged symbol might not have stood out to Kendall as anything other than a flag but its meaning can be found quite offensive to many. Vote below and tell us what you think! Kendall Jenner is probably just a big fan of the famous band Lynard Skynard and didn't realize that the shirt had such a deeper meaning. The "rebel flag" as it's sometimes referred to has a very negative connotation and although the "Sweet Home Alabama" guys have some very famous hits, this shirt is probably the last thing this 19-year-old high-fashion model should be wearing.

Kendall Jenner Wears Confederate Flag — Fashion Statement Or Totally Offensive?

Kendall was running errands in the tank top and probably didn’t even think twice about the meaning of this southern flag. Once the flag served as one of the official Confederate States of America flags and since then has been attributed to southern heritage and also racism. The flag Kendall is wearing has the “southern cross” design on it which is one that the Ku Klux Klan is associated with.

Kendall Sends Kris Jenner Big Balloon Sculpture For Mother’s Day

Meanwhile, Kendall and her little sis, Kylie Jenner, sent their mom, Kris Jenner an amazing balloon sculpture on Mother’s Day. It was complete with hundreds of white and red balloons and it was so long that it would barely fit in Kris’ famous foyer.


It spelled out “I Love Mom,” and they also sent her a huge arrangement of flowers earlier in the day too!

We are sure that Kendall didn’t even realize what was on the shirt but next time she might want to be a bit more careful. Especially since she’s so famous now!

HollywoodLifers, do you find Kendall’s shirt to be offensive?
