Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian West Go Back-and-Forth on Instagram Over Throwback Photo of Jenner
Of all the Kardashian-Jenners, Kim Kardashian West arguably has the best family photo collection. However, one of her posts isn’t going over well with Kylie Jenner. After the KKW beauty founder shared a throwback picture with some of her sisters, Jenner hit the comment section begging for Kardashian West to delete it. This prompted a back-and-forth between them that stretched across several comments.

Kardashian West posted the picture on Friday, Sept. 25. The New Zealand Herald reports that it dates back to 2009, when the family was in the earlier years of the careers and looked a lot different. Kardashian West had blond hair, Khloé Kardashian was still a brunette, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner were in their early teenage years.
Captioning the image, Kardashian West wrote, “Babies at Benihana 🥰.” The post generated over two million likes, with many fans gushing over how cute everyone looked and reflecting on those days in their lives. But Jenner seemed embarrassed as she told her sister, “delete this immediately.”
In response, Kardashian West wrote back asking, “should I Diddy crop you out?” referencing when Diddy cut the Jenner sisters out of a photo at the 2017 Met Gala. Though Jenner replied that she would “absolutely” prefer to be cropped out, the photo remains on her sister’s Instagram page. See it here.
Some fans in the comment section called Kim Kardashian West ‘wrong’ for posting the photo
Even though Jenner looked adorable, it is known that she had insecurities in her teenage years that led her to make cosmetic changes. Aware of that, fans criticized Kardashian West over the photo, with many accusing her of trying to upstage her sister.
“Kim you wrong for this one,” one fan wrote, garnering over 17,000 likes. “Why she do that to her sister,” read another comment that has more 15,000 likes.
“Kim knows she looks good but her sisters 😂😂😂 that’s why she posted it,” another fan said while someone else wrote, “Kim wanted to shine today 😂😂😂.”
But those who have kept up with the Kardashians know that isn’t very likely. Although there have been rumors of a sibling rivalry, both of them have pushed back on the speculation several times over the years.
In a 2016 post on her now-shuttered website, Kardashian West said (via The Daily Mirror): “Kylie and I laugh so hard at this all the time, because people always want to pit us against each other, thinking we have similar careers. I think it’s amazing – there’s no one else I would want to be in the same business with than my sister. She teaches me so much, and I teach her so much, and we’re both so close that it’s just funny.”
Jenner made similar comments at the same time, explaining, “I think people forget that me and Kim are sisters. We’re not in a competition. We’re completely different people. Kim inspires me. She’s one of my biggest inspirations. That’s not a secret! I look up to my sister. I don’t think that’s like, a weird thing? We have a lot of love for each other.”
Although we’re wondering if Kim lost a couple of brownie points over this latest Instagram post.
