Overview

Kylie Jenner's Navajo Slot Canyon Controversy refers to the photos Kylie Jenner in a bikini at Slot Canyons which were posted to her Instagram in July 2020.

The tweet gained over 404,600 likes and 43,8000 retweets in three days. The next day, Twitter user @ABecenti[3] shared the posts saying, "Kyle Jenner was enjoying Slot Canyons, which is supposed to be closed to tourists because of COVID-19. Navajo parks are closed to visitors and tourists since March and are still shut down. What’s wrong with her head? Is it too heavy to hold up?" (shown below, right). The tweet accumulated over 2,100 likes and 580 retweets in two days.

The next day, Twitter user @meggerzmac[4] posted, "I have seen twitter debate about whether or not Kylie was actually on Navajo sacred territory or not but regardless this just reminded me of how much I hate how the Kardashian/jenners are so idolized. If you love the Kardashians I strongly urge you to think about why that is" (shown below). There were debates as to whether Jenner was actually on Navajo land. According to The Daily Dot,[5] "Jenner’s Instagram showed that she was staying in the luxury Amingiri Hotel in Canyon Point, Utah, located less than 20 miles outside of the Navajo Nation. It’s unclear which slot canyon Jenner took her photographs in, though many on social media believe it to be Antelope Canyon, the most famous of the slot canyons and located within the Navajo territory."

liz @lizbethzmbrano Kylie Jenner posted a photo in a bikini on NAVAJO NATION LAND when they just had the highest rate of infection in the country. These are sacred spaces not a pop-up museum in Los Angeles for a good photo op! 3:06 AM · Jul 12, 2020 · Twitter for Android realistic cake hate acct @notesmia The way Kylie Jenner pranced around the Navajo Nation to take some bikini pics shows how disconnected people are. They have the highest covid rates, and very little resources, not to mention there's a lockdown. I hate it here. 1:44 AM · Jul 12, 2020 · Twitter for iPhone Tádídíín Queen d @traciej_ White privileged at its finest. @KylieJenner gets to do a photoshoot on Navajo land BUT Navajos closed those sites due to COVID and OUR people are on lockdowns. Did you donate anything to help the Navajo nation and tribes land you're on while potentially exposing them? No. Arlyssa Becenti, @ABecenti · Jul 12 Kyle Jenner was enjoying Slot Canyons, which is supposed to be closed to tourists because of COVID-19.

I mean, she looks socially distanced enough on these photos. Seems rather exaggerated to focus on this one person when there are hordes on people actually congregated on public beaches that refuse to fully shut down yet.
