Kendall Jenner might be one of the most popular and sexiest models on the planet, but the famous brunette doesn’t have many fans in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, because fans of the city’s NBA team, the Philadelphia 76ers, want to ban Kendall from attending home games.
Why, might you ask? Well, Kendall Jenner, who’s dating one of the Sixers’ brightest stars, Ben Simmons, was seen in the crowd during Friday night’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The result? The Cavs, who have the worst record in the NBA, handed the Sixers their first home loss of the season — and first since last season, dating back to March — which is leading Philly fans to believe in the whole Kardashian Curse thing.
Things have gotten so real that Philadelphia 76ers fans have started a petition on Change.org to ban Kendall Jenner from attending home games at the team’s arena, the Wells Fargo Center. Talk about a serious slap in the face, huh?
In a near-300 word manifesto, some diehard 76ers fans write about how Kendall is bringing back vibes to the 76ers, and detail why she should be banned. Here’s part of their claim:
Jenner was front and center in attendance for the Sixers loss to the worst team in the league, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It is not a coincidence that the Sixers, who had started the season 10-0 at home, lost their first home game of the year the first time Jenner shows up.
If the Jenner/Kardashian family has any shred of decency left, Kendall will never again show her face at the Wells Fargo Center.
Pretty hilarious stuff, if you ask me. Then again, I’m a Cavs fan, so whether Kendall Jenner comes to Sixers games or not doesn’t really impact me all that much.
The petition had hopes to get 7,500 names to sign, but, as of press time, the “cause” had been increased to 10,000 signatures, with over 7,700 already signing. Something tells us this petition will reach its goal — but that Kendall Jenner will continue to show up to Sixers games.
In fact, Kendall’s current reaction is probably something like this after hearing the news about the petition.
C’mon, Sixers fans, why on earth would you want to keep her out of your home arena? I just don’t get it.
