If you follow Kylie Jenner's cosmetics company on Instagram, you've probably noticed that she likes to swatch her lip kits on her arm. Only, it's not her arm. It's the arm of her housekeeper, a fact that Kylie revealed with a startling lack of self-awareness about how said revelation might be controversial.

"Everyone knows when I'm releasing a product on Snapchat that I will be MIA for the next hour and a half," Jenner told Fast Company. "I'm running around my house, finding the perfect lighting, the perfect swatches. My housekeeper, I use her arm for my Snapchats. She has the best arm for swatches. She's so nice and just sits there and has her arm ready and lets me do my thing. I care a lot about what my products look like when people first see them."
Suffice it to say the internet is not pleased.
Someone please tell Kylie Jenner's housekeeper that most parts modeling jobs pay double scale (scale approx $600) plus 10%May 16, 2017
I'm sure @KylieJenner is paying her housekeeper real good $$$ to be her swatch model. I can't with this HORRENDOUS family ANYMORE! https://t.co/NxYYJhPZWOMay 16, 2017
Here's to hoping Kylie's housekeeper is making extra money as a model for one of the most successful cosmetic brands in recent memory.
