Kendall Jenner Slammed for Having Cellulite on Her Legs

A few F-words come to mind when we think of Kendall Jenner. Famous. Fabulously pretty. Filthy stinking rich.

But fat? No fat chance.

Yet the model, who is proving herself as a fashionable force to be reckoned with on runways as near as New York and as far as Milan, is apparently catching flack from a few deranged fashionistas, who consider her too fat to be a great clothes hanger.

After photos of Kendall surfaced showing her walking for Tommy Hilfiger wearing a teeny bikini, some have criticized Kim's little sister for appearing to have a bit of cellulite on the backs of her legs. Everyone should have a BFF like Ireland Baldwin, because Alec's amazing daughter didn't take the gossip lightly.

After it was suggested that certain folks in the industry want Kendall to lose weight -- as if that's even possible -- Ireland took to Twitter to defend her friend by saying, "I just saw a magazine cover of Kendall Jenner where is (as usual) looks thin and beautiful and FAMOUS decided to photoshop some cottage cheese on the back of her thigh. Uh. let me tell you. that girl has flawless legs. I’ve seen them in person plenty of times…"

Good for her. Whether you're a fan of the Kardashian/Jenner clan or wouldn't cry if they disappeared completely from the public eye, negative talk about a stick-thin 18-year-old girl does not help women. The only thing it does is perpetuate this idea that women must be absolutely flawless -- not a mark, not a pock, not a single ounce of extra flesh on them.

Some are claiming these photos of Kendall are photoshopped to look like she has cellulite. This isn't out of the realm of possibility since we hear she's been bullied by a few models who feel she hasn't had to work as hard as them to earn her place in this year's Fashion Week shows.

Since we've never been face-to-leg with Kendall's limbs, we can't confirm their silky smoothness. But that, of course, isn't the point. She's young, gorgeous, and working hard. It isn't fair for anyone to take away from that with petty insults about her body.

Do you think models like Kendall open themselves up to harsh criticism about their bodies?
