One way or another, the cast of Keeping Up with the Kardashians always seem to end up in the headlines and at the center of social media, and it seems to be Kylie Jenner’s turn.

What does the public know about Kylie Jenner’s friend Stassie Karanikolaou? 

Kylie Jenner’s fans and followers probably recognize Stassie Karanikolaou from Jenner’s social media posts, but who exactly is Karanikolaou? Though she typically just goes by Stassie, Kylie Jenner’s friend’s full name is actually Anastasia Karanikolaou. Karanikolaou is a model and a social media influencer. Jenner and Karanikolaou have known each other for just under a decade now.

From traveling the world together to matching Halloween costumes, there doesn’t seem to be anything this duo won’t do side-by-side. Karanikolaou even made the decision to quarantine with her bestie when the global pandemic first began. Over time the reality television star has shared countless photos with her close friend, but, recently, Kylie Jenner shared a post on Instagram that put her and her BFF at the center of some pretty serious accusations.

It is not unusual for Kylie Jenner to share a photograph of her and Karanikolaou, and that is just what she did a few days ago. The Instagram post showed Jenner and Karanikolaou posing in matching bodysuits and glasses. The friends even decided to wear matching hairstyles. Under the photo Jenner wrote, “fun fact: we’ve been twinning since we were in middle school. we used to never leave the house unless we had a matching outfit on.”

However, as soon as the reality television star shared the photo her fans and followers were quick to accuse Jenner of taking the “matching” one step too far. Many people began to speak out about why they believed Jenner and Karanikolaou are actually copying the look altogether. 

What have fans and followers been saying about the accusations in the online discussion? 

A recent Twitter thread put Kylie Jenner and her BFF on blast for one of the famous celebrity’s latest Instagram posts. One user reposted the photos of the duo with the caption “the twins are the blue print.” Naira Banks commented back indicating that everyone knows just which twins Jenner and Karanikolaou copied for their photoshoot.

The Clermont twins are best known for their time on Double Trouble as well as their unique sense of style. That was until Jenner was accused of copying it. One fan jokingly commented, “Kylie and Stassie becoming the Clermont twins so they can be in the next Yeezy ad campaign.”

Many people were confused and uncertain of what to make of the post. Another person insinuated that Jenner and Karanikolaou are trying to become the “white” version of the famous twins. There seemed to be a lot of people on the same page about this topic. 

To take matters one step further, one of the twins at hand decided to get involved in the discussion. Shannade Clermont chimed in and tweeted, “we really don’t be getting the credit we deserve for how much we be on these bitches mood board. It’s okayyy thoo.” Kylie Jenner has yet to address the accusations, but many people seem convinced nonetheless.
