Ellen DeGeneres Made Fun of Kendall Jenner for a Pointless Instagram Post that Received 14 Million Views
A number of Kardashians/Jenners have visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show over the years. And Kendall Jenner has made a splash on the talk show a number of times. She talked to Ellen DeGeneres about her 24th birthday party at the beginning of 2020. And the two also discussed one of Jenner’s Instagram posts that DeGeneres didn’t understand at all.
Kendall Jenner posted about her ‘wingspan’ to Instagram
The Kardashian/Jenner clan are quite popular on social media. And it looks like they can post just about any photo or video and make it go viral. This seems to be the case for Kendall Jenner, as she posted a video of herself in front of a mirror in January 2020 — and the post has received over 28 million views so far.
Jenner simply captioned the post, “wingspan.” And it shows the model reaching her arm above her head and out to her side. Her body is also fully in view.
It looks like Khloé Kardashian thought Jenner’s post was just meant to show off her body, though. “We get it — you’re perfect,” Kardashian commented. And it seems others thought the same.
“Lmao we get it it’s a body check,” another fan wrote in response to the post.
Ellen DeGeneres asked about the post that received millions of views
It seems DeGeneres is the one most confused by the “wingspan” post. When Jenner visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show in January 2020, the host asked the model what the post was all about.
“Explain to me … OK,” DeGeneres started. “You post this, and it got, like, a trillion views. Like, how much? Fourteen million views because you did that. What made you want to do that and call it ‘wingspan’? And why is that 14 million views?”
“I don’t know,” Jenner responded while holding her arms out, “I just have a really long wingspan and I just felt like people should know. It was so random, but it’s hysterical.” Jenner then admitted that the post is “mindless,” but she finds it funny that those types of posts get the most attention.
DeGeneres then put Jenner’s wingspan to the test by going back to back with the model. And it turns out Jenner’s arms aren’t as long as she thinks. “You have a long wingspan, but it’s not that much longer,” DeGeneres commented.
DeGeneres made fun of the post once again with an old photo of Jenner
It looks like DeGeneres wasn’t finished making fun of Jenner’s “wingspan” post. During the same interview, DeGeneres mentioned how stars from the Netflix docuseries, Cheer, would be joining her and Jenner on stage. And for laughs, the talk show host projected a bad photo of Jenner during her high school cheerleading days.
“No!” Jenner laughed and yelled as the photo was projected. “Why would you share this photo?”
“That was the wingspan!” DeGeneres joked since Jenner’s arms were in a funky position in the photo.
“My friends used this photo to make fun of me,” Jenner added.
“That’s a wingspan getting ready to go,” DeGeneres joked once again with additional laughter from the audience.
Jenner took the photo as a funny prank and didn’t harbor any hard feelings against DeGeneres for unearthing it to the public. But we bet she’ll think twice about posting another photo of her wingspan to social media after an interview full of questioning and ridicule.
