  Jenner's new business has not been met without backlash, however, as the model has been accused of cultural appropriation in an ad for the liquor. In the spot, Jenner can be seen riding a horse through an agave farm in Jalisco, Mexico wearing braided pigtails before cheersing her liquor with farmers.

  ”No miss Kendall, we do not ride in horses all the time, no we do not wear our hair in braids all the time, no workers do not get to drink the tequila (also that's not the way you drink it) + workers do not work with that kind of clothes and finally, your advertisement is so whitewashed/california vibes. Jalisco is not California, so don't try to make it that way,” said one Twitter user?in a viral thread.

  Jenner ultimately disabled the comments under the photos on her Instagram.

  Still, a number of fans came to Jenner's defense, pointing out that male celebrities such as?George Clooney?and?Dwayne Johnson?have also released?similar advertisements?posing with agave farmers in Jalisco for the release of?their own tequila brands?in the past without such backlash.
