    It's really irritating that a whole SLEW of male celebrities have a Tequila brand and no one said anything about it, before Kendall started one! Rampant freaking SEXISM!!!! People in Jalisco, Mexico are profiting on her venture. She had to have put in a lot of time and work and people should shudup!!!! And I'm not even a fan of her, in general. But the haters should go 🚶 kick rocks. Personally, if I were Kendall I would have started a vodka brand, instead, since it's the biggest selling spirit. But she's a California girl, and Margaritas 🍹are very popular in So. Cal.!!! People need to CHILL and support their preferred Tequila brand!!! Judgemental, whiny az schmucks!!!!

    *Beer was invented thousands of years ago in Mesopotamia...yet there’s modelo and corona and plenty other “Latin American” brands. Whiskey was invented in Scotland thousands of years ago and drake has a whiskey brand. Vodka was invented in Russia and p-diddy has vodka. Cognac was invented in France and Jay-z has a brand. The list could literally go on forever...why has no one ever complained about those? Just say you hate the kardashian clan and don’t buy from them.*

    Cultural appropriation has to be one of the most cringe concepts ever. People appropriate each other‘s cultures all the time. Anyone who is not of English ancestry is appropriating English culture by speaking English. Nobody is screeching about that though.. I would never buy this tequila, simply because it is produced by Kendall Jenner, whom I despise. Has nothing to do with me being “offended” or anything though. I just want authentic Mexican tequila made by the professionals who have been doing it for generations.

    THIS IS FUCKING DUMB. Getting mad at a celebrity won’t change shit. Our entire country including our own government hire ppl from other other countries for low wages to make their products(typically ones that aren’t of their own cultural background, just the same). As for her creating a Mexican branded tequila, that to me seems like a huge compliment.

  23. Jasmine Tea

    Jasmine Tea13 days ago

    As a Mexican, I hate this. It’s sad that people think this “isn’t important”. The reason people are mad at Kendall specifically is because she is already known for cultural appropriation. The Kar/Jenners are “trend setters” by stealing once looked down upon cultures and making it acceptable in a white western society. So this, literally profiting off of the backs of Mexican works that get barely livable wages is wrong. She couldn’t even butter us up by showing an appreciation of Mexico and it’s culture first before the announcement (not just vacay pic of Cancun or Cabos). But then she couldn’t even do the bare minimum of showing cultural appreciation instead of appropriation by labeling the bottles correctly in Spanish.

    I’m Mexican-American and I do plan on creating my own brand someday as I do have land in the Los Altos Sur/Cienega region. I won’t say exactly which municipio it’s in but by my photo you can probably determine whereabouts. So, here are my thoughts. Firstly, I have always been against celebrity tequila brands. I don’t deny their right to create a brand, I’m just not going to ever purchase it and if I ever were to own my own restaurant/bar, none of it, including Patron would be available in my establishment. Also, there’s ignorance on both sides. Someone tweeted about the “brown hands” that make it in Jalisco. Whoever that person was is a straight up ignorant fool. Los Altos is heavily populated with people who are almost entirely if not 100% of European stock. I myself am of 75% European stock and do not consider myself “brown.” I am what I am. At the same time, this rush on the part of celebrities to get into the tequila industry is just lame. Anyone who is a fan of this Kendall Jenner Kardashian person needs to ask themselves what she ever did to make them become fans of hers. I’ll leave that-at that. I think, also, there are deleterious effects to these “celebrities” getting into the industry. It makes it tougher for real Mexicans like myself to get out products placed on shelves but it will make me work that much harder to kick their asses in the marketplace. Clearly, she has no clue how tequila is to be enjoyed and is showing herself to be a fraud huckster just out for the money. Lastly, I wouldn’t call it “cultural appropriation.” She has a right to bring a brand to market and I have a right to avoid it like the plague, which I will. I will also never give her the time of day once my brand takes off but I will also afford all the other Hollywood hypocrites like Clooney and Cranston and the rest with the same amount of indifference that I would to her. He dicho.

    As a Mexican, I don't care..I just roll my eyes and won't buy it because we know where the good stuff is at. Even though- I hear the reason to why people say it is culture appropriation and it makes sense, but ultimately I prefer the freedom than limitations this 'cultural appropriation' thing brings. It's too micro managed. You can't even dress up freely on Halloween without offending the internet anymore.. God forbid you wear a sombrero and a mustache if you aren't Mexican. Where was the outcry when P Diddy launched his own Vodka line... uh oh! Watch out Russians. Like what?! lol This is too much.

First tequila blanco not the other way, second how are you going to taste with ice, third what makes her an expert. She should have come out with a wine or some moonshine, but producing in California is too expensive it is better to exploit Mexicans and pay them shitty ass pay and that way she makes more money!!!!!!

    Penny M14 days ago

    @Meika Meeks not a big deal to people who don't take the tradition of tequila making seriously or who don't value it, but to others such as myself, it's relatively important because she's making it seem like hers is the best even though other tequila brands such as Gran Centenario have won countless awards and have had to build their reputation over the course of almost 200 years. She doesn't know how to properly consume tequila or even compare them to one another, and she'll clearly make a lot of money from her ignorant fans by using her social status and her family name. It's just a huge mockery of what actually goes into making tequila. Edit: it's also upsetting how she takes business opportunities away from other distilleries that are fully family owned since most tequila companies are owned by the latter, such as the 1800 Tequila company.

You play and sell music to the world and people will love it and try it and sometimes use the cool beats in their own music. You cook Mexican food for people to try and you to make money but you think people don’t want to learn how to cook it? All this appropriation is bs. If you could spaghetti guess what? Yes you’re appropriating. Either we’re in the world together sharing learning buying and imitating the things we love or keep all those cultural contributions to yourself and don’t share or try to make money off them etc. Everyone is victim it’s ridiculous.

  69. Alyssa Vargas

    Alyssa Vargas15 days ago

    As a Mexican I do not support Kendall Jenner’s decision to make a tequila brand. To be clear, I am not speaking for all Mexicans, as it is clear from this comment section alone that Mexicans are divided on this issue and many others. Also, I would like to state that the purpose of my post is not to present an ad hominem attack against Jenner but to critique this single business venture and to explain why I disagree with the arguments I see in defense of Jenner. Firstly, I would like to say that every non-Mexican celebrity who created a tequila brand of their own in the past was wrong in doing so, and that they deserved as much backlash as Jenner is currently receiving. Yes, Jenner is partly being criticized due to her family name, her participation in an ill-conceived Pepsi ad, and the known business practices of her family members. And yes, it could also be true that she is receiving more criticism than a man would in the same situation due to her sex. However, Jenner is also receiving criticism because the current political climate has given Mexicans and other minorities the courage to voice matters which exploit them, and Jenner’s newest business venture is one such matter. The other non-Mexican celebrities who created tequila brands before Jenner created hers were fortunate to have done so at a time in which the issues Mexicans and other groups face were not given as much concern or understanding. The point stands today that celebrities who attempt to profit off the sale of cultural products from cultures they do not belong to are unjustified in doing so, especially if they do not state any intention to give back to the impoverished communities which provide the labor to produce said products. As coronavirus continues to devastate México and further impoverish a country that already struggles with immense poverty and violence, I believe that every dollar rightly earned from Mexican labor should stay in México. It remains to be seen whether or not Jenner’s company will adequately pay the laborers producing her product. However, if history has taught me and other Mexicans anything, it is that those working for Jenner’s tequila brand will most likely be significantly shortchanged for their back-breaking work. Even if Jenner’s tequila company procedes to provide adequate pay to its laborers, it does not change the fact that an American company has no business selling a cultural product of México. Finally, I would like to state that on this issue, Mexicans alone will decide if Jenner’s business decision is or is not cultural appropriation. It is my own opinion that the consumption of a cultural product is not necessarily appropriation, but that the intent to profit off another culture’s historic products is cultural appropriation/exploitation. As a side note, I would also like to state that it is inappropriate to comment such things as “why do I have to care about these people,” “what about my people,” or “what about x or x?” Every disenfranchised group deserves to have a separate spotlight placed on the issues specific to them, without other groups trying to downplay or exploit said spotlight. Every culture gets to decide for itself, at any point in time, how much they would like to share with non-members, or whether to share anything of their culture to non-members at all. It is not the responsibility nor obligation of any member of a culture to give non-members access to their culture.

    It thats the point. None of these celebrities made the tequila, they go to these towns, ask these people who work for years creating their own recipes to sell it to them and then take credit for THEIR work and claim it as their own. And the only reason they get to do it is because the have big money behind them while these distillery farmers don’t. That’s the point. It’s gentrification.

    Before ya'll say "omg they're such snowflakes" or "omg they're just jealous" first of all, it's sickening how another white celebrity profiting off of other people's culture, if Mexican wants to be angry over this, then it's their right, don't you dare to tell POC how to feel because ya'll white people don't know how it feels to get your culture appropriated since ya'll have no culture and likes to appropriate other people's culture, ya'll don't understand so shut the fuck up and don't compare "how about the pizza store that owned by non Italian person" it's a different thing and story, she said "I've been working hard for 4 years" like what hard work? She doesn't do anything, the people in Mexico did

    And maybe she did work hard. Not as hard because shes already a big name so she probably gets deals and favors easily. But nonetheless its not easy to run a business.

    I understand why ppl are mad but why is she literally the only one getting hate at this point I don’t even think it’s cause she’s a women it’s literally because she’s related to the Kardashians and ppl will find any way to hate so many “popular” mainstream Male artist have made tequilas also and have faced little to no backlash at all and even praise yet when she does it ppl are randomly mad, I understand you can be annoyed at someone taking something known from your culture and making profit off of it however if that’s the case how are you gonna be cherry picking which celeb is ok and what ones get called out for doing the same thing

    Many celebrities have Tequila brands even Tesla has tequila. She’s not exploiting Mexican culture. Cancel culture is so fucken toxic. It’s NOT culture appropriating, it’s appreciating our culture.

    Whatever these people do they always get backlash, the public expects them to do everything and perfect If they start out a business venture Suddenly they are accused of not promoting small businesses If they buy a certain item which is expensive suddenly they are accused of spending a lot of money and not helping the people in need Like I get the fact that yes they should use their platforms to help others as well But we should not forget that at the end of the day they are people too who are looking out for themselves by either starting new businesses or doing something now Or even buying something expensive time and again And it's not just Kendall Many celebrities and personalities are targeted like this Its ok they are people too They don't have to be perfect, just imagine having a life in which If you go on a vacation or drink a certain kind of drink it comes up on the news the next day Please be kind ❤️❤️

    Absolutely stupid, Oh, so should Black women who wear wigs and weaves that look nothing like their own natural hair (let alone be able to even grow it) be called culturally exploitative of another culture, even the Latina women who cut their hair and sell it for other Black women to get woven into their own? Even better, should they not wear BLONDE wigs and weaves on their heads because they are exploiting European culture???. Sean Diddy owned big stock in a Tequila company? Is he exploiting? Give me a break.

    So people know that to have tequila it has to legally be made in a certain section of Mexico right? That means she had to do business with the people there to even get this product made in the first place. So how is she appropriating the culture of she literally has to do business with them to get it made? If it’s a problem then the Mexican manufacturers that allowed her to make it should be at fault

  122. Estefania Chavez

    @dre27321 okay so i understand that majority of people don’t understand why tequila genuinely is a part of Mexican culture. But Kendall branded her tequila as Mexican with Spanish labels and she got the labels wrong. Reposado, blanco, And añejo go after tequila. Now she can easily correct that which i don’t have a problem with but she named it 818 which yes Calabasas technically is part of that area code but the rest of that areas is predominantly poor areas which Mexican Americans live in. So Kendall and her family is making money off of a drink that means so much to majority of Mexicans, marketed and branded her tequila as Mexican but didn’t care to get it right or even highlight and share the process of how tequila is made. At least that’s how i saw it. The plant the drink is made of takes 6 to 8 years to grow so it’s ready to be used to make tequila and there is so much more that goes into making it and she didn’t care to see how it’s made or learn how it’s made, at least that’s how it seems and is most likely not going to even pay the manufacturers a good portion of her profits. And the reason i think she got called out instead of the other celebrity owned tequila brands is because of her branding and because her family is known for profiting off of products that represent something in other cultures and it’s fine if share how they appreciate and understand why that product means so much to that culture instead of making it seem like a cash grab. And the reason it’s triggering is because of the history of how white people treated my people and only care about the culture and not the people and we carry that trauma and it just bothers some of us to see people exploit our culture for profit given the history of how our people were and still are being treated. At the end of the day nothing is going to stop her from selling it and I’m not going to hate her for it. I don’t agree with it so I’m just not going to buy it end of story. But I’m also going to give my opinion. You may not agree with it and that’s completely fine. That’s what makes us humans. It would be so boring if everyone agreed on the same things but i just ask that you respect why it’s important to my culture that’s all. And don’t invalidate our opinions just because to you it seems like we are over reacting when if you knew the history behind how our people were treated then you would understand why people don’t like when someone tries to profit off of something that is important to our culture and brands it as a Mexican tequila without showing her appreciation for the culture. If the other celebrities branded it wrongly then Im sure they would have been called out and also the kardashians and jenners are just so relevant that’s why it sparked controversy. That’s all.

    @Estefania Chavez what’s wrong with her branding

  124. Estefania Chavez

    Estefania Chavez15 days ago

    The manufacturers aren’t to blame for her branding. The branding is what people have an issue with which is why they have an issue with her making tequila in the first place but i also know that people can’t stop her from making tequila so just like for all the other celebrities who have made tequila, i personally won’t buy her tequila and that’s it. She’s going to do it anyways and I’m not going to send her hate for it i just wish people actually understood why tequila is really important for most Mexicans and why it’s part of our heritage and is more than just a drink. Kendall Jenner is a smart business women but i just wish she branded it differently. I think if she branded it differently no one would call her out. But maybe it’s just me thinking that.

    A lot of people don’t know how important the tequila business and process is to Mexicans. A lot of people may not understand or get how important it is to our culture and even people in our culture don’t think it’s that important to them but that doesn’t mean we get to invalidate the people who do care about tequila. I think ,and it’s just my opinion, that the reason she is getting “dragged” for it is her branding of the tequila brand. So because not a lot of people know this but in order for a brand to have their liquor product legally named tequila it must be made in tequila, Jalisco in mexico. If it’s not made their or in any other places that is certified in Mexico then they can only call it an agave product or something like that i don’t remember the correct term. But my point is she labeled her products wrong, misspelled some terms, and she named it after an area code that has predominately Mexican Americans living there while they are suffering in poverty. Kendall is marketing and branding her tequila as a Mexican brand and her first mistake is getting the labels wrong, profiting off of Mexicans and most likely won’t bring light to the culture and actually share her knowledge about the process of tequila. And like the video mentioned there has been a shortage of agave in Jalisco for years so distilleries will produce the big brands, all these famous celebrities brands first which means these other authentic Mexican owned brands will have shortages which can lead to business loss and they live off of the income they make from their brands. These celebrities won’t loose anything if they stop producing tequila. So in retrospect she is unknowingly hurting the people that make her tequila. And the reason it sparked controversy is because she is branding it as Mexican and claims her tequila is the best out of all the tequilas which to me reads as a white persons tequila is better than an Mexican owned tequila and it may just be me reading into it but with the history of how America treated our people and overtaken things related to our culture just rubs me the wrong way. Americans take Cinco de Mayo as a day to just get drunk without actually knowing what that day meant and represents in Mexico, they dress with sombreros and mustaches without realizing they are amplifying the stereotype that that’s how Mexican look and dress, they take taco Tuesday and make it their thing. From my point of view Im tired of white people taking things from my people and making it “trendy” without actually appreciating the history behind those things and sharing it and uplifting it. And not to mention a good part of white people like our culture but don’t like that our people want to come to the US for a better life. Instead it seems like a cash grab thing. Sorry this is way to long but i hope this explains why she is getting called out instead of the other celebrities. I guess my point is that the other celebrities didn’t brand their tequila the way she did which triggered a good portion of Mexicans.
