Well, here’s something you don’t read every day… someone has thought of a number of ways to kill Kylie Jenner.
Seven ways to be exact.
London’s Royal Court Theatre is currently showing a play called “Seven Methods of Killing Kylie Jenner.”
‘Seven Methods’ was written by 22-year-old British playwright Jasmine-Lee Jones.
The play follows a digital activist, Cleo, and her best friend, Kara, as they navigate abuse and racism on social media.
Cleo goes on a twitter tirade against Jenner after being broken up with, and while writing her college dissertation on structural racism she comes up with hypothetical ways to kill the makeup mogul.
Some murder plans (all hypothetical) include poison, drowning and disgrace.
Kylie Could Care Less!
The play previously had a sell-out run at the Royal Court in 2019 and is described as a “vivid exploration of blackness, queerness and the online world.”
In an interview with The Guardian, Jones explained why she combined such darkness with comedy.
“I knew that cultural appropriation was a very big subject and that everyone has an opinion on it and that it can be very polarising. [Through comedy] you can get people to listen in a different way. I also wanted it to be the experience I have when I’m talking to my friends; we can be talking about something really serious and then one of us will say: “Oh my god, I forgot to tell you…” and it becomes light and jokey,” the playwright said.
As for HOW the idea of ‘Seven Methods’ came to fruition Jones said, “It was just an instinctive thing, really. It came into my head and I just remember writing it down – even before I’d conceived the whole idea of the play. There have been various reactions, from faces going blank, to discomfort, to laughter.”
According to The Guardian, the play has won numerous accolades, including most promising playwright at both the Critics’ Circle and Evening Standard awards. The show has been revived at the Royal Court for a six-week run ending on July 27.

So, how does the subject of the play feel about this?
Unbothered clearly, because today she announced the New Kylie Cosmetics is launching on July 15.
Jenner also announced, “Everything is clean and vegan, and I can’t wait for you guys to try these new formulas!”
Pushing New Product!
While the lipkit queen is very much alive and well, earlier this year she and her sister Kendall Jenner had very close calls with a stalker.
A man trespassed onto Kendall’s property, got naked, took a dip in her pool and banged on her window. The stalker then showed up on the cosmetic queen’s property.
In May a judge ordered the stalker to stay at least 100 yards away from her for the next three years.
