Kylie Jenner's recent spread in Interview magazine is creating buzz online after the reality star posed in a wheelchair for the cover. The publication is touting it as art while some people are labeling it ableism.
Merriam-Webster defines ableism as discrimination or prejudice against individuals with disabilities.
And it's a discrimination that affects people like Ophelia Brown, a 17-year-old girl who saw Jenner's cover and tweeted: "wow being in a wheelchair is so fun and fashionable! #Ableism is the ultimate fashion statement!"
