Kendall Jenner’s Bottle Cap Challenge is Being Dragged on Instagram
Reality star Kendall Jenner is the latest celebrity to give it a shot, and the video has people talking. We’ve gotta say that it’s pretty epic, but it’s also just as controversial. Here’s why people are slamming Jenner’s bottle cap challenge.
She did the challenge in the middle of what appears to be an ocean
In a video shared to Instagram on July 8, the supermodel drives past a bottle on a jet ski, one leg extended in the air to knock off the bottle cap. She hits her target, sending the top down into the water.
The post received widespread and immediate praise from her fans, family members, and friends.
Kim Kardashian commented, “This is so good!!!!!”
Her other sister, Khloé Kardashian wrote, “That’s my girrrrlllllllll.”
And Scott Disick added, “And that’s a wrap. Game over.”
But others were not happy with Jenner potentially polluting the ocean with the plastic bottle cap, and quickly voiced their concerns.
“Great more plastic in the ocean for a useless challenge,” one person wrote, while another said, “And a turtle just [choked] because of that cap.” Others posted things like, “I know she better put on some goggles and get that bottle cap she left in the ocean.” (LOL.)
Jenner defended herself
As fans continued to flood her comments with their concerns, Jenner hopped back online to clear things up. She wrote that the cap had been “recovered,” so that the sea will be a little safer.
See, it’s all good now:
A bunch of celebrities have taken on the #BottleCapChallenge
The challenge went viral back in June after John Mayer posted an impressive video of himself roundhouse-kicking a lid off of a jug. Celebrities like Jason Statham, Blake Shelton, and Justin Bieber have since taken a stab at the craze. In fact, it was actually Bieber’s wife, Hailey Bieber, who challenged Jenner to try it out.
Hailey’s video is pretty similar. It shows her driving an ATV in a wooded area and kicking the cap off a bottle of Guinness.
Suki, suki, indeed.
Did Mariah Carey win the challenge?
If you were to ask a friend who the winner of this challenge is, there’s a good chance they’ll name the “With You” singer. She gave it a try on July 7, posting a video to Instagram that shows her preparing to kick the cap off a wine bottle. Just as she’s ready to hit it, she knocks the cap off with just her voice.
You heard us. Look at it for yourself in case you missed it:
Fans couldn’t get over the video (us-included).
Actress Ruby Rose commented, “This is what they call a win.”
Rita Ora added, “You win hands down.”
Even her boyfriend, backup dancer and choreographer Bryan Tanaka, chimed in, writing, “Winner!!!”
But the challenge is only getting bigger as the days go on, so stay tuned for who tries it next.
