Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods may not be besties anymore After that whole Tristan Thompson debacleHowever, that does not mean Everything One of them can shade the other. Woods was forced to remind everyone of this fact after Jenner was accused of shading her in comments on a TikTok.
The (unintentionally) offending video shows Woods pinching her lips together while a remix of The Weeknd’s “Party Monster” plays in the background. When the song gets to the lyrics, “lips like Angelina,” the video suddenly transitions to Woods showing off her naturally full pout. “Thank you mom & dad for these genetics,” she wrote in the caption. Commenters immediately suspected Woods was low-key shading Jenner—who famously uses fillers to plump up her lips—which Woods denied. “There’s no shade towards anyone, this is a trend I’ve seen a bunch of girls doing and I wanted to hop on,” she replied to one such comment.
This is, in fairness to all parties involved, a valid decision TikTok trend. Just search the linked audio and you’ll find dozens of similar videos—though Woods seems to have made her own spin on the trend. Most of the vids transition to people with the “Angelina Jolie” filter, which makes your lips look big, “like Angelina’s.” Unlike many of the people who hopped on the trend (not to mention Jenner), Woods’ plump lips are courtesy of her genetics rather than filters.
Woods’ statement that she meant no shade to anyone is untrue, and there’s no reason to doubt it. However, it’s easy to see why Jenner would be a connection. Kylie Jenner’s lips and lip fillers have been the subject of endless debate since she admitted to receiving injections in 2015. Kylie’s Life. One of the worst critiques (including in) is an essay published in this very magazine) points out that while full lips are viewed as a desirable style “trend” when seen on white women like Jenner, Black women have been discriminated against for this very feature.
Jenner is free to do what she likes to her face. Jordyn woods, on the other hand, has the right not to be accused of taking aim at an ex-friend.
