Grab Your Pitchforks, Internet, Because Kylie Jenner Just Declared War on Christmas

By  | 



It’s the most wonderful time of the year: The time people go absolutely bonkers on Twitter because they think Christians are being persecuted in America and that there is a “War on Christmas” going on because sometimes people say “Happy Holidays” instead of specifically saying “Merry Christmas.” And right now it looks like the “Saving Christmas” brigade has turned its critical eye on Kylie Jenner, who was just trying to put up a damn Christmas tree in peace this weekend, and now she’s accidentally the brigadier general in the War on Christmas.

“I can’t wait to get my tree up for xmas!” Jenner tweeted last night, with a string of heart-eyed emoji ad a little Christmas tree. It’s a pretty innocuous comment, but across the Internet people saw that “x” in “xmas” and spit their Starbucks lattes all over their computer screens. She probably thought she was being all friendly and seasonal and nobody could possibly take offense to that Tweet. Little did she know that would be the moment Kylie Jenner declared War on Christmas.

Immediately people began tweeting spelling corrections at the littlest Jenner, basically insisting that she promote Christ on her Twitter feed as though he were a new Lip Kit.

Clearly Jenner has enough fans in her Twitter feed to take on the Christmas warriors, but one Twitter user had a pretty on-brand suggestion for how to stop all the drama. Just call it Kristmas. It’s hard to believe that Kris Jenner has not already trademarked the word “Kristmas,” but one expects she has the application in as we speak. christmas7

Kylie Jenner thought she could just post an emoji of a Christmas tree and say “xmas” like some kind of casual tree-haver? Well here’s what we think of your Christmas tree, Kylie Jenner!

Nah, just kidding. I just really wanted an excuse to put that burning tree GIF in this article. You put up your xmas tree, and we look forward to seeing how flashy and wild it looks once you do. Last year Jenner’s tree was surprisingly small and dinky and she charmed us all by calling it her “Charlie Brown” tree. This year the smart money says she’ll go the other direction and outdo the Rockefeller Center tree. Or maybe even her mom’s tree, which is even bigger.
