'Interview' Mag Responds to Kylie Jenner Wheelchair Backlash

Kylie Jenner is receiving criticism for posing in a wheelchair as part of her Interview magazine cover shoot.

The publication has now responded to the backlash.

“At Interview, we are proud of our tradition of working with great artists and empowering them to realize their distinct and often bold visions,” the magazine told E! News. “The Kylie Jenner cover by Steven Klein, which references the British artist Allen Jones, is a part of this tradition, placing Kylie in a variety of positions of power and control and exploring her image as an object of vast media scrutiny.”

“Throughout the Art Issue, we celebrate a variety of women who are both the creators and subjects of their artistic work, and the Kylie feature aims to unpack Kylie‘s status as both engineer of her image and object of attention,” the publication continues. “Our intention was to create a powerful set of pictures that get people thinking about image and creative expression, including the set with the wheelchair. But our intention was certainly not to offend anyone.”

    As a wheelchair user, the cover offended me. People who use wheelchairs for a disability are never in cover of magazines. But because she is a Jenner its “artistic”.
