In the video, Jenner twirls around in a ballet studio, dressed in ballet clothed, and remembers the “good old days,” of being a kid, running around freely. There are also several photos, some of which Jenner posted on her Instagram.

We’re not sure that’s an actual move, and ballerinas are definitely not impressed.

Many members of the dance community took to social media to express their issues with Jenner’s game of make-believe.

The comments section on the photo of Jenner has been disabled, but before it was, Dance Moms star Abby Lee left a comment saying that the model in question is definitely not a dancer. She also threw a little self promotion in there, requesting that momager Kris Jenner send her granddaughter North West to Lee’s studio ASAP. The Shade Room photographed the comment before it was removed.

Oop! #DanceMoms coach #AbbyLeeMiller is not here for #KendallJenner’s new shoot ? #KrisJenner

Zendaya also posted an Instagram photo, seemingly throwing shade at Jenner.

Other Twitter users pointed out that Jenner was really just doing her job. She’s a model. A lot of the time, that means putting on clothes and pretending to be something you’re actually not.

We’re inclined to agree. She was doing what she’s paid to do, not unlike an actress. Let’s all just calm down.
