Kylie Jenner is facing backlash on social media after she wore a “realistic” lion head dress to Paris Fashion Week.

The 25-year-old also shared a post on Instagram, showing off her controversial dress. “BEAUTY AND THE BEAST,” she captioned. “Wow, I loved wearing this faux art creation hand constructed with synthetic materials. beautiful beautiful.

Despite the lion’s head being fake, many users still criticized the reality TV star and accused her of promoting trophy hunting.

“This normalization of trophy hunting is so bad. Use the natural beauty of wildlife to “shock” and stir up controversy. How sad and empty,” one wrote in the comments.

“That’s not cool at all, even if it’s wrong, stop promoting animal cruelty,” another commented.

“Come on Kylie…I love you but come on. Man made or not, promoting the acceptance of wearing animals as trophies is never okay,” a third shared.

Surprisingly, animal rights organization PETA, which has repeatedly called out the Kardashians, came to Kylie’s defense.

As of this writing, Kylie Jenner has yet to respond to the backlash.
