The pictures are from an upcoming book by photographer Russell James that features nude and provocative images of several Victoria's Secret "Angels."
Nude pictures of Kendall Jenner leaked in the late hours on Tuesday, and by Wednesday morning, she had been subjected to a litany of reactions, including extensive body shaming.
The photos were taken by photographer Russell James and intended for release in his upcoming book, "Angels." According to TMZ, they were released without his permission. But, as one would expect, the pictures wasted no time circulating across and throughout social media.
The response, though, has been more mixed than one might expect for professional photos of a young model, with many expressing shock and even dismay over the pictures on Twitter. Jenner has also been subjected to extensive body shaming for the shoot, with users calling out the model for her slight frame and lack of signature Kardashian-family curves.
Still others, like Brandi Glanville, came to the junior "Kardashian's" defense, calling out those who would shame her with the same breath they attack the elder Kardashians for alleged surgeries to accentuate their curves. The hypocrisy of people never ceases to amaze and their capacity to tear others down seems limitless.
I just saw the most beautiful nude pics of @KendallJenner running on the beach & while I celebrate ALL shapes &sizes I applaud her for not trying to look like everybody else & owning how beautiful nature has made her— Brandi Glanville (@BrandiGlanville) September 12, 2018

People are literally body shaming Kendall Jenner for being “too skinny” but bashing her sisters for getting surgery. You people are stupid and confused.— Ju Ju (@julianicole_) September 12, 2018

love how people make fun of kendall jenner having small boobs but would shame her if she got surgery on them x— g (@tperjeangirl) September 12, 2018
Y’all are corny and hypocritical as hell commenting on Kendall Jenner’s body looking like a boys or whatever the fuck. Y’all want “natural”, “untouched”, no butt implants women and when you get them these are the main comments I see. 🙄🙄🙄😒😤— Varsha (@varshvarsh) September 12, 2018
No matter how you feel about Kendall Jenner what we're NOT gonna do is body shame her in any way. Get a job, take up a new hobbie, start a blog literally anything besides making unwanted comments on any woman's body ever— Liv (@olivia_ryan22) September 12, 2018
why do people wanna body shame kendall jenner for being skinny? y’all ever stfu and let people be comfortable in their bodies? she’s clearly confident and y’all clearly aren’t.— kirstin (@floatdan) September 12, 2018
Kendall Jenner has her problematic past, but there is no reason to body shame— Brian Gay (@brian2596) September 12, 2018
if a female gets work done, you attack her
if she has a natural body, you attack her
women can’t win
people body shaming Kendall Jenner because she’s skinny and making comments saying that she’s “built like a 13 year old boy” but also body shaming the rest of the sisters for having surgery and not being natural is a perfect example of how u can’t win in today’s society 🤧— KAY!!! ☼✨ 🍯 🌙 (@kkayofsunshinee) September 12, 2018
y'all trashing kendall jenner is disgusting. funny how you preach about supporting plus size girls but you suddenly jump and claim kendall looks like a "boy".— dani (@jaderexha) September 12, 2018
