Stealing her thunder back? 'Aggressive' Kendall Jenner shoves assistant off the red carpet at Met Gala
The model was apparently posing for photographs as she showed off her gorgeous but simple white jumpsuit designed by Virgil Abloh
Kendall Jenner had her own diva moment at the Met Gala this year. The Keeping Up With The Kardashian star was spotted by the thousands of cameras at the event, shoving an assistant out of her way at the red carpet in New York Monday night.
The model was apparently posing for photographs as she showed off her gorgeous but simple white jumpsuit designed by Virgil Abloh. However, when an assistant pushed back on the Jenner sister, she pushed him out of the way so that the photographers could get their desired shot with her in the frame.
The 22-year-old was accompanied to the high-society event by her sisters Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, and while Kim opted for a golden gown by Versace, Kylie made her appearance in an all-black ensemble by Alexander Wang.

There was a lot of criticism on all the Kardashian-Jenner sisters for their choice of dress, given the theme of the Met Gala 2018 was 'Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination', and fans felt that the sisters had somehow got the memo wrong since none of them seemed to adhere to the theme.
Some criticized Kendall's white outfit as toilet paper chic, while Kim's gown was named too simple to stand out in the crowd. As for little sister Kylie, people felt that she had absolutely let go of the theme set for the event and showed up in a dress that did not go with her surroundings in any which way.
However, the most ruckus was caused by Kendall's shove method for getting perfect pictures, and a lot of her followers took onto social media so as to address their woes.
Hey @KendallJenner, this guy was just doing his job, and yet you thought it was ok to push him out of the way so you could take a photo? Get over yourself!— Dave (@DaveA_33) May 8, 2018

While some addressed her Diva moment in their tweets, some others just stuck to the discussion over her choice of clothing for the Met Gala, which is considered to be the Oscars of the fashion industry.
Kendall Jenner has all that money yet she can’t even follow one simple theme the wrong people always get to be rich— nayeli (@joonsxo) May 7, 2018

Kendall Jenner came through in her finest Fashion Nova jumpsuit. Use code “YAWN” for 10% off #MetGala— Scamber Rose (@iyanuuuuh) May 7, 2018
Get Kendall Jenner the fuck up outta here i’m sick of that useless hoe, like what are you actually good at?— winnah (@WinnahAgwabi) May 7, 2018
However, there were still some people who saw Kendall's side of things and acknowledged that the star was merely pushing the security guard towards the front because he kept backing up every now and then, endangering Kendall's dress since she could have easily tripped and fallen if he backed up more than usual.
Since you media loves to bring drama, watch the video closely,the guy keep stepping back & Kendall use her hand to push him lil bit..anything for a Kardashian drama..smh https://t.co/jO5fzo56Ly— Kezzzz (@kezza_xw) May 8, 2018
If you think what Kendall Jenner did was a shove, I've got some magic beans to sell you.— Jenny O'Henry (@JennyOHenry) May 8, 2018
There’s no way that this could be described as a shove. You can see in the clip that she puts her hand out and the guy obviously reacts to her hand by moving. Why so much drama when there’s an actual video?? https://t.co/cUV3BpFzIa— I'm supposed to be studying. (@UnicornNebula) May 8, 2018
