First of all, this is the stupidest, most ridiculous and horrifying thing youths have been forced to do all in the name of following in the footsteps of a beauty icon.

The #KylieJennerChallenge became a trend on social media from April 19 when countless teens went to dangerous lengths just to get their lips plumped like reality star Kylie Jenner.

Some teens went to the extreme to achieve Kylie’s look by suctioning a glass or bottle over the lips, which resulted in major swelling and bruising, reports say.

After parents and some beauty fanatics demanded for Kylie to swiftly intervene, the 17-year-old spoke of Twitter on April 21, asking her fans to love themselves for who they are and not try to look like her.

 

 

Other reports claim the star is totally 'mortified and absolutely saddened by the entire ordeal. A source close to Kylie tells HollywoodLife: ''[Kylie] wishes she could meet every single person who partook in the challenge, and tell them they’re beautiful just the way they are''.

The insider added that, ''That wasn’t her intention. She’s not trying to be the poster child for full lips.Kylie’s not trying to be a trendsetter by any means with her lips. She had no idea some people would go to these very dangerous lengths in an attempt to make their lips fuller. She wants it to stop and believes all beauty comes from within.”

It's no surprise that Kylie's lips have become huge over time whit fans suspecting she may have underwent cosmetic surgery to get plump lips but she has denied all rumors claiming 'she’s gotten older her face has changed, and she now knows how to do her own makeup.'

Despite being mocked by many including Miley Cyrus, Kylie remains herself, confident in her own skin and denying going under the knife to get her lips bigger!
