Despite the public health crisis, many citizens and celebrities in America, have come out in high numbers to protest against the police brutality on African-Americans.

This comes shortly after the death of George Floyd, who passed away as he was begging for breath from a white Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin.

The case has caused an uproar, and while several celebrities have aired their opinions and support to the cause online, they have been physically present to join in the street protests nationwide.

A recent photo featuring Jenner showed the 24-year-old holding a post that read "#BLACK LIVES MATTER" while posing in an all-black outfit and face mask.

The image went viral because her reflection showed that there was no signpost held in reality. After the picture had circulated the internet, and many fans came at her for deceiving them with a fake photo of the protest, Jenner decided to speak up.

The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star mentioned that she wasn't part of any street protest and that it was photoshopped. She wrote:

"This is photoshopped by someone. i DID NOT post this."

In no time, fans hopped in the comment section with their support for the celebrity. Many trolled her initial critics and explained that the account that posted the image isn't Jenner's.

Some still enjoyed the joke and took to teasing the model. However, one fan stated that regardless of any clarification, she still didn't join in the protest, which seemed rather upsetting. The person wrote:

"Yeah, and you also DID NOT go to a protest, what's your point?"

Even though the model is yet to join in the march, she's used her Instagram as a platform to reach out to her fans and commit herself to be intolerant to racism.

In a post, she explained that she's always checking out essential details, enlightening and educating herself to serve the black community better.

Other celebrities interested in advancing the black community's cause include Kanye West and Madonna, who, irrespective of her injury, joined the protest in London.

Jennifer Lopez and her fiance Alex Rodriguez supported the march in L.A, while Micheal Jordan took to the streets of Beverly Hills.
