People are tearing Adidas apart over its new Kendall Jenner ad

  • Adidas is being criticized by fans for using Kendall Jenner as a brand ambassador in a new ad.
  • The ad compares the model to the goddess Venus and tells viewers that "original is never finished."
  • In the ad, Jenner says: "I did what I had to do. I faced it all, and I stood tall. I did it my my way."
  • Many people have argued that Adidas should have used an athlete instead of a model, and said that there's nothing "original" about her.
  • A few people have defended Jenner, however, and see nothing wrong with the ad

Adidas is being criticized for featuring Kendall Jenner in its new ad, which compares the reality star and model to the goddess Venus and tells viewers that "original is never finished."

 

Jenner appears to be wearing an Adidas crop top and sneakers with underwear as she lies in a hibernation chamber in the ad, and says: "I did what I had to do. I faced it all, and I stood tall. I did it my my way."

The video also shows stills of Botticelli's iconic 1486 painting "The Birth of Venus," and cuts to a black model who — unlike Jenner — isn't tagged in the video on Instagram.
