Speculation began on Saturday after Kris Jennertweeted that her daughter had a big announcement to make with an accompanying teaser video of Kendall talking about an unnamed topic that she said she was finally ready to speak out about. "I can connect with you", before the words "Connect with Kendall" flashed across the screen.
On January 5, Kris Jenner teased that Kendall would be revealing something moving about herself.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star took to Twitter to recount her struggles with acne. This video, along with Kris's caption regarding Kendall's "raw story" - "I'm so proud of my darling @KendallJenner for being so courageous and vulnerable - led many people to believe that Kendall was coming out as gay".
Recalling the event, Kendall explained that she felt so good about her hair, dress, and makeup that she forgot about her bad skin. Kris' hashtags, which included #bethechange, #shareyourstory, #changetheconversation and #mydaughterinspires me, hinted at something inspiring: "Be prepared to be moved", she wrote.
In the clip she said: "When I was 14, I couldn't reach as many people that I can now that I'm 22".
Many people on social media thought that Kendall was going to announce something very, very serious with the wording Kris had used in her tweets about the surprise announcement. "I remember going online after and reading all the terrible things people were saying about me, and my skin". Her announcement came one year to the day from her 2018 Golden Globes appearance. "I had exhausted all other options and [decided to] try Proactiv".
"I am so thankful to Proactiv, not only for clearing my skin, but also for understanding the impact I want to make and for sharing my story in such a thoughtful and meaningful way", Kendall added in a statement.
As of this writing, Kendall has not responded to any backlash from her latest endorsement deal.
