Does Kim Kardashian's little sis deserve the hate she's getting from other models?

If you have been keeping your eyes open, you would've noticed that Kendall Jenner walked for Diane Von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, Donna Karan and Marc Jacobs while in New York.

On top of her Kardashian heritage, it would seem that Kendall is quickly becoming the fashion world's new darling... except there are some among the army of clothes horses seen during Fashion Week who don't think that the 18-year-old deserves to walk the runway.

Some models reportedly even put cigarettes in Kendall's drinks, but according to a source, she did not let it get to her. "If Kendall was bullied, she certainly isn't aware of it. She's too busy working hard and enjoying what she's doing."

While we are empathetic to how other models had to carve their own way into the industry without the virtue of their name to help, we would never applaud said models – any models – for bullying someone who was lucky to get her career break because of who she is. Regardless of how unfair it seems.

Granted, it's all very superficial when it comes to the modelling world. Also, you can be in one day and out the next. But if Kendall is good at what she does, we don't see why she shouldn't stand her ground.

In fact, she's already made her runway debut at Milan Fashion Week, walking for Fendi and Ports 1961. Take that, mean girls.
