Because they're one of the most famous families in the world.

The world has been utterly Kardashian obsessed.

Even though the Kardashian family is actually quite big...

The main focus has always been on "momager" Kris Jenner and her daughters, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie.

Of course, brother Rob Kardashian has made the occasional appearance over the years...

As well as the many partners, pals, and love interests of the family, including Scott Disick (who remains outrageously popular on the show), Tristan Thompson, Kanye West, Blac Chyna, and Jordyn Woods.

Over the years, there has been so much drama in the big family...


Especially between the hot-headed sisters, who are famous for constantly arguing and creating some golden TV moments.

Whether that's Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe constantly arguing over who's the most successful...


Or the famous gender transition of Kris' ex and Kendall and Kylie's dad, Caitlyn Jenner... there's always something going on with the Kardashians!

And not forgetting Scott Disick's countless drunk and disorderly moments...


Which probably explains why he and Kourtney called it quits for a good a few years back!

But, we must say...

It's very admirable how far they've come in the last fourteen years and the numerous business ventures they've each taken on.

For instance...

Even though Kim literally started the whole family fame with a controversial intimate video in 2002, the businesswoman and fashion mogul is now studying law in the hopes of becoming a lawyer, just like her late father Robert Kardashian.

Twenty-five-year-old Kendall is now a high-fashion supermodel...

And regularly works with huge names such as Calvin Klein, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, and many more.

And of course...


Who could forget Kylie Jenner? She is now perhaps the most famous of the family.

Not only does Kylie own her own hugely successful multimillion-dollar business, Kylie Cosmetics...

But she is now one of the most influential women in the world.

But with all of this insane success...

Comes a lot of criticism and controversies that have been surrounding the family for years now.

The sisters in particular are constantly facing negativity from fans...

Whether that's because of them using cultural appropriation as fashion trends, promoting unhealthy body expectations with their heavily filtered and enhanced looks, having lots of cosmetic surgery while claiming they're all-natural, or setting bad examples for young women... they've been accused of it all.

And the latest?

Kendall Jenner is facing backlash for her new business venture.

The supermodel has come under fire after announcing the launch of a tequila business.

She shared the news that her brand, 818, will be released this year.

Kendall took to Instagram to share the news, writing, "For almost 4 years I've been on a journey to create the best-tasting tequila."

"After dozens of blind taste tests, trips to our distillery, entering into world tasting competitions anonymously, and WINNING, after 3.5 years, I think we've done it! This is all we've been drinking for the last year and I can't wait for everyone else to get their hands on this to enjoy it as much as we do!"

But, while many shared their excitement about the thought of getting their hands on a bottle.

Others were not happy...

Many people accused her of appropriating Mexican and Latinx culture.

With many pointing out that tequila production is traditionally a family business and others questioning the percentages of the profits that crafters would see.

However, It should be noted that celebs like George Clooney, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, LeBron James, and Kevin Hart have all launched tequila brands without criticism.

In fact, The Rock even posted a similar video to Kendall on Instagram of himself with Mexican farmers.

​It seems the biggest criticism is that Kendall is taking advantage of Mexican culture and trying to pass as a "ranchera."

However, it seems the true focus of the ad was to highlight the farmers' hard work in making the product.

Sources say Kendall has been very passionate about 818...

And is dedicated to working with the farmers to make the best tequila possible...

The first criticism she faced was for not crediting the farmers...

And now she's once again facing criticism now she's put the spotlight on them.

Kendall was also criticized for drinking her tequila with ice as it dilutes the flavor...

Yikes. She just can't win.
