Kylie Jenner is trying to tweet out “2020 energy,” but all she’s getting is hot blowback for wearing a fur coat and posting a picture about it.
Jenner and Anastasia Karanikolaou were shown wearing blue and orange fur-lined coats, respectively, as a wintery thirst-trap duo. Jenner’s jacket cost $1,875, while Karanikolaou’s coat was $1,755.
ET Canada had a few more details about the coats, noting they were Foxy Leather Coats coats with fox fur trim made by Saks Potts.
Jenner’s photo was captioned “2020 energy,” but the energy Jenner’s getting is one of activism and humiliation.
“What a shame money can’t buy a heart,” wrote one, while another said, “So 2020 energy = being heartless and only caring about yourselves?”
A third asked Jenner point-blank: “When are you going to stop wearing dead animals??”
People didn’t really want to give Jenner any slack on this one, and told her there were perfectly good and safe solutions to her fashion problem.
“Why did it have to be fox fur? Synthetics look similar and you don’t kill more than 10 foxes for a coat,” said one.
“What’s the meaning of becoming so famous and not caring for animals? U are fairly responsible for killing foxes for Instagram ? Imagine someone ripping off ur dogs for their skin… Harsh right, get some brain girl.”
“Wearing the hair of animals that were brutally tortured and skinned alive…..real cutie Kylie,” while another said “Thx for trying to look hot by killing animals.”
Jenner also posted a standard-issue thirst-trap photo, with the message:
“just didn’t feel right going into 2020 without one last thirst trap??? ” Just like the rest of us.
This post got better reception. “Where do I sign up to become your third rapper boyfriend…” wrote one person.

Plenty of other Kardashians have come under fire for wearing fur, so Jenner’s not the only to catch some heat.
A while back, Kim Kardashian shared how she was converting her real fur coats to faux fur, and posted a picture of her daughter, North West, wearing one of her remade coats.
“Remember when I wore this! She picked out the same look lol but fun fact- I took all of my fave furs and remade them in faux fur,” Kardashian wrote in June.
Should Kylie maybe listen to her half-sister on this one?
Kardashian got support at the time for making the wardrobe change, considering she used to wear Celine sandals lined with rabbit fur, as well as a “furkini.”
And it seemed North wanted to follow in her mom’s footsteps, literally, after she posted a picture of her wearing Kim’s pink snakeskin boots.
“Sooooo Miss North dressed herself and thought she was ready for the day until I explained she couldn’t wear my boots.”
North had a bit of a meltdown after that.
