Kylie Jenner has been laughed at and chided for some of the things she says and posts on social media.
Recently the KUWTK star caused waves in the media when she posted a picture that followed the conspiracy theory that airplane condensation trails (contrails) are actually “chemtrails” sprayed by some corporate entity to kill bees.
The picture showed a blue sky criss-crossed with airplane trails, the kind you can see when you look up on almost any clear day. It had text superimposed on it followed an incredibly slippery slope of logical fallacies to a stunning implied conclusion:
Lets ask ourselves…
Why did I see 75 planes spraying white stuff into the sky on my 15 minute drive to work?
Who pays for this and why is it happening?
Is something being exterminated?
Is that something me?
Does this have anything to do with why Honey Bees are Dying off really fast?
Why are some days normal with no planes spraying and others look like this?
Who is responcible [sic]?
What effect will this have on our health and our childrens future?
WHO THE F#*% THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?
Am I the only one who sees this?
All it takes is a quick Google search to learn what many of us were told in elementary school about contrails. Here is what NASA says:
“Contrails are clouds formed when water vapor condenses and freezes around small particles (aerosols) that exist in aircraft exhaust.”
And the reason you see more contrails on some days than others? It’s all about the temperature and humidity levels at those altitudes on any given day. Are the conditions right for vapor trail formation?
Kylie Jenner was questioned about the picture, especially some obvious spelling and grammar errors. She says she did not make the picture, just posted it.
I didn't write the pic my girl. Just reposted a pic. I know how to spell responsible https://t.co/CSCb9hzxeU

Given this and other social media oddities, especially on Snapchat, Kylie Jenner’s actions have been questioned. But Kylie Jenner gave us an unprovoked peek into her thoughts on this when she tweeted:
“Instagram is a made up world. I just show people what I want em to see. Doesn’t everybody?”

Kylie Jenner is part of a family that shows people what they want them to see. And they know what pays. Piers Morgan once said of Kim Kardashian:
“It’s time for me to make a shocking admission: I like and admire Kim Kardashian-West. Kim doesn’t take drugs, get drunk, fall out of clubs, cheat on her man, or do any of the other insanely louche things that stars with far greater ‘talent’ often do. She works ridiculously hard, is good to her fans, and is by all accounts a good, loving daughter, sister, wife and now mom herself. Kim Kardashian-West’s laughing all the way to the bank. And all you lazy, snide, snobbish, patronizing and hypocritical critics can go kiss her ass – there’s plenty of room.”
