A photo which claims to show Kendall Jenner wearing a burka as a disguise has sparked outrage online as commentators believe the act is disrespectful towards Muslims.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was subject to a stream of social media based abuse for the picture which was posted to Instagram by DJ Neptune yesterday, but already people are questioning the authenticity of the image.
While the model is reportedly spending time in Dubai as her family recovers from the trauma of Kim’s Parisian robbery, The Sun has highlighted a number of inconsistencies with the photograph which suggest it may have been digitally manipulated.
Clues like the DJ’s bent right ear and the way in which the sun hits Neptune’s shoulder suggest the shot – which purports to show the 20-year-old model standing outside the Burj Khalifa – has been altered.
Despite the strange nature of the pic, Twitter users have bombarded Kendall with abuse for allegedly using a burka to avoid the paparazzi.
One person wrote: “Kendall is the epitome of white privilege, if any of yall are defending her dumbass wearing a burka re-evaluate your entire lives (sic).”

Kendall Jenner wore a burka to hide from paparazzi and is being praised. Us Muslim women wear it and get insulted left, right and centre.

Watch Kendall be praise for wearing a burka, but when Muslims women do it they are terrorist. Tragic.

It's really not a big deal that Kendall wore a burka. What's annoying is the reaction she gets as opposed to a regular woman wearing one. https://t.co/U9pZqaKoH6

While another said: “Kendall Jenner wore a burka to hide from the paparazzi and is being praised. Us Muslim women wear it and get insulted left, right and centre.”
Kendall has yet to address the controversy online, but a second image of her and the DJ has since been posted to his account.
It shows the pair posing before allegedly going for dinner.
