Kylie Jenner's pattern of unsettling behavior on Instagram continued this week as the 17-year-old reality star posted a controversial caption to the photo below:
"Help me take off my balmainnnnn sweatttttsssss" Kylie wrote beneath a selfie in which she poses in a pair of - you guessed it - Balmain sweatpants.
The caption is a reference to the song "Balmain Jeans" by rapper Kid Cudi, which actually makes it more disturbing, as the lyrics that follow feature some graphic descriptions of what happens after the pants are removed.
In fairness, Kylie is going through a difficult, confusing time at the moment. Her mother, Kris Jenner, just filed for divorce from her father, and KJ's most recent IG posts make it clear that she's having a hard time coping.
Yesterday, Kylie posted a quote about the "emptiness" she's feeling in the wake of her parents' decision to end their marriage.
Her sister, Kendall Jenner, acknowledged the divorce with a throwback photo of Kris and Bruce Jenner in happier times.
So while both Jenner sisters are clearly struggling - and with good reason - it's disappointing to see Kylie pass up the opportunity to serve as a role model to her millions of fans who are experiencing difficulties in their own families.
One look at her comment boards makes it clear that Kylie's fans skew very young, and we shudder to think of how they interpret it when they see her dealing with a stressful time by encouraging strangers to undress her.
