In news that’s sure to depress anyone who’s reading this at work, we learned today that Kylie Jenner earned $18 million in 2016.

She’s one of the stars of a successful reality show, but at this point, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is not the cash cow it once was.

Rather, it’s more of a weekly infomercial designed to sell the sisters as arbiters of taste. Which brings us to this week’s scandal …

Fans of the show follow the sisters on social media, where they hawk licensed or sponsored content, and that’s where the real money comes in.

No one has taken advantage of this system better than Kylie.

She sold everything from Kylie lip kits to water bottles, and her massive following and considerable influence moved serious product.

Her hustle has made her one of the most in-demand names for companies looking to market their goods to teens and early-twentysomethings.

Of course, teens are notoriously fickle, and there are hundreds of other young pseudo-celebs vying for Kylie’s spot on a daily basis.

You can understand, then, why she wasn’t happy with this:

Kylie Jenner App

Yes, Kylie Jenner’s subscription-based app seemed to suggest that followers stock up on anal beads in order to keep the men in their lives happy.

The above text appeared on Kylie’s app yesterday, apparently without her approval (it’s unclear who authored it, but she denies it’s her).

We know Kylie’s kinky, but this would be right at home in some version of Cosmo targeted at housewives who have time-traveled from the ’50s.

Are her followers looking to evade persecution resulting from their love of furry handcuffs? It’s unclear, but it’s a little weird to see on this app.

After all, her subscribers probably consist primarily of high school girls and young adults, making this a head-scratcher even for Jenner.

The recommendation that young women make pleasing their boyfriends a full time job not exactly jibe with the zeitgeist of 2017, does it?

Moreover, suggesting that teenage girls purchase sex toys sounds more like the work of Jared from Subway than young Kylie Jenner.

Instead of getting rid of the app (she didn’t make $18M by eschewing money-making opportunities!) Kylie decided to distance herself from it.

Or at least from this one scandalous post.

Making it perfectly clear that any and all high-end dildo endorsements are not coming from her, she now refuses to generate any more content.

On an app that bears her freakin’ name:

“Hey guys from now on I won’t be posting personally on my app anymore,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 19, tweeted yesterday.

“A post went up today quoting something that I NEVER EVER said or saw. A very personal post that I would never ever approve."

"And it’s unfair to me and you to think that those were my words. I’m sorry and I know we will figure something out so we can all be satisfied.”

And not with dildos, presumably.

She concluded her mea culpa with this promise: "From now on, I’ll be leaving the fancy vibrator talk to Gwyneth Paltrow."

Okay, we made that last part up, but it’s not too late for Kylie to start the year on an awesome note by tweeting it.
