Kylie Jenner Interview Magazine Shoot: Publication Defends Use Of Wheelchair As Prop

Interview Magazine Defends Use Of Wheelchair In Kylie Jenner Shoot

Kylie Jenner's new photoshoot with Interview Magazine has officially broken the internet... but not all for the right reasons.

The cover spread, shot by photographer Steven Klein in the style of artist Allen Jones (the man behind the infamous 'girl tables' that inspired a scene in A Clockwork Orange), show the 18-year-old transformed into a latex-clad mannequin.

But one image has been causing some controversy, with people speaking out in outrage at the fact that Jenner was pictured posing in a gold wheelchair.

Interview Magazine defended their use of the wheelchair as a prop, telling E! News: "At Interview, we are proud of our tradition of working with great artists and empowering them to realise their distinct and often bold visions.

"The Kylie Jenner cover by Steven Klein, which references the British artist Allen Jones, is a part of this tradition, placing Kylie in a variety of positions of power and control and exploring her image as an object of vast media scrutiny.

"Our intention was to create a powerful set of pictures that get people thinking about image and creative expression, including the set with the wheelchair. But our intention was certainly not to offend anyone."

But is presenting the reality star as a figure metaphorically 'crippled' by fame really OK? Not according to these Twitter users.
