Social Media Users Obsess Over the #KylieJennerChallenge
This past weekend, An overwhelming mass of social media users participated in what they are hashtagging as the #kyliejennerchallenge or the #kyliejennerchallengegonewrong in attempt to get fuller lips like Kylie Jenner famously shows off.
Though Kylie has said in the past that she uses makeup to create her fuller pout, social media users are trying out a more drastic method.
Twitter and Instagram users are using water bottles, shot glasses, and glass cups to suction their lips which in fact does give them fuller and sometimes awkwardly swollen lips.
However more and more users are hashtagging #kyliejennerchallengegonewrong because they are also suffering from severe bruising and cuts, when the shot glass explodes in their mouths.
Some social media users are even claiming that their lips remain swollen and haven’t gone down for days on end.

Naturally, this craze has caused a lot of controversy and backlash from social media users who’ve had failed attempts at the challenge and other social media users who are accusing those participating in the trend for making fun of African Americans who naturally have fuller lips.
Even Kylie’s nemesis Blac Chyna participated in the challenge to throw shade at Kylie.

Kylie Jenner has since responded to the controversy surrounding the challenge and encouraged her fans to stop participating and embrace who they are naturally.
“I'm not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look,” she wrote on Twitter.
She added, “I want to encourage people/young girls like me to be YOURSELF & not be afraid to experiment w your look.”
We definitely agree with Kylie’s advice. However, we would also encourage her to be herself and embrace who she is naturally.
