Top 10 Kardashian-Jenner Scandals

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, this famous family sure keeps us on our toes. Welcome to MsMojo and today we're counting down our picks for the Top 10 Kardashian-Jenner Scandals.
For this list, we’re looking at the biggest controversies surrounding the first family of reality television.

#10: Kendall & Kylie’s T-Shirts

Using their reality TV fame, the Kardashian and Jenner sisters have all managed to leverage themselves by selling a wide variety of products. Some of them have been major hits, but others have been serious missteps, like these Notorious B.I.G. T-shirts that Kendall and Kylie sold in their online store. Biggie’s mother posted online, “I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt. This is disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!” The $125 shirts, which featured the images of the sisters alongside Biggie and Tupac, were pulled not long after.

#9: Kim Accused of Blackface

The concept of cultural appropriation is something that has entered the public consciousness in recent years, and Kim Kardashian has been accused of it on several occasions. There were of course the “boxer braids” that both she and her sisters sported, but more memorably there was the blackface scandal. When Kim launched her cosmetics line, one of the initial promotional images featured her with a heavy contour, but her complexion looked much darker than usual. Critics were quick to point this out, and the photo was altered in later versions.

#8: Kylie's Lip Fillers

If you’ve been following the Kardashians since they first appeared on the scene when their show premiered in 2007, you’ll know that the youngest member of the family, Kylie, has undergone some dramatic changes over the years. When she was still in her teens, she began getting attention for her lips, which suddenly appeared to be much fuller. She initially denied having any cosmetic procedures, and went on to make almost a billion dollars with help from her Kylie Cosmetics empire, which was founded on her famed lip kits. She has now admitted to getting fillers, but people are still happy to buy what she’s selling.

#7: Rob Posting ‘Revenge Porn’

Members of the Kardashian clan have been involved in many feuds over the years, but this one really got out of hand. Rob Kardashian may get less attention than his famous sisters, but all eyes were on him after he shared personal and explicit photos of his ex, Blac Chyna. His actions were dubbed “revenge porn” by many who accused him of taking things too far, and Chyna took legal action against the father of her child as retribution, successfully getting a restraining order against him in the process.

#6: Caitlyn's Support of Donald Trump

Caitlyn Jenner shocked the world when she came out as transgender, and ever since the revelation, she has become a controversial figure in the trans community. Yes, she has given visibility to trans issues and offered up a celebrity platform, but she has also made some choices that have upset those who champion LGBTQ rights. One major issue is her support for Donald Trump, and she has been accused of voting against the interests of the trans community by vocally supporting him. She has stood her ground though, saying she has no regrets.

#5: Tristan Thompson Cheating on Khloé

2018 was a big year for Kardashian/Jenner pregnancies, with rumors abounding about Kylie, Kim and Khloé having babies for months. By April, Khloé was ready to give birth, but just days before she went into labor news broke about her partner and the father of her child, NBA player Tristan Thompson, reportedly cheating on her. There was video evidence, and celebrity news outlets were filled with seemingly minute by minute updates. Ever since, the couple has put on a happy face, and seems to be trying to put the whole incident behind them. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the first time Khloé experienced this, as she had similar issues with her ex, basketball player Lamar Odom years earlier.

#4: Kendall's Pepsi Ad

The idea behind this Pepsi ad seems like a simple one: show that the ills of the world can be solved if people have something to band together over. But critics were quick to draw comparisons between the scenes in the ad and the Black Lives Matter movement, which was taking place around the same time. Kylie herself was criticized for co-opting the political movement, and both the brand and Jenner soon apologized for their misstep. Someone on Kendall’s PR team is not great at their job because she was also involved in promoting the ill-fated Fyre Festival.

#3: Kim's Brief Marriage

Since “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” kicked off more than a decade ago, we’ve seen the sisters go through many romantic relationships, both good and bad. One of the most memorable, and talked about, however was Kim’s marriage to Kris Humphries, which famously lasted just 72 days. Their wedding was a huge production on the show. However, after they decided to split, there were many rumors about whether their entire relationship had been a sham in the first place. It’s possible we may never know!

#2: Kim & Kanye’s Feud with Taylor Swift

We all know about the old beef between Kanye West and Taylor Swift, but it seemed like by 2016, things had cleared up between the two stars. Their feud was reignited however when Kanye released his track “Famous,” which featured some unsavory lyrics about Swift. When she reacted negatively, Kim eventually published clips of Taylor giving her approval on some of the lyrics (though not the most offensive ones). This was an epic A-list celebrity battle for the ages, and it won’t soon be forgotten.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few dishonorable mentions.

#1: Kim's Sex Tape

Many people seem to question how the Kardashians got famous in the first place, and many point back to this: the infamous sex tape. Created in 2003 but leaked in 2007, the intimate video made by Kim and then-boyfriend Ray J can probably be credited with propelling the family to reality TV fame. Their show aired not long after the video was made public, and conspiracy theorists say it was all an intentional publicity stunt. All these years later, it seems like it doesn’t even matter anymore because the Kardashians have unquestionably become a pop culture institution.
