    This is from the NY Daily News - link is on the bottom; totally impressed with what he did here to get some publicity.

    Don't ask Kylie Jenner for help getting a job — she doesn't have a real one in the first place.

    At least that's what company Good&Co had to say by creating a fake tweet appearing to be from Jenner in order to stir up publicity for its job search app.

    The 19-year-old reality star, who also sells lip gloss, responded to the fake screengrab, which alleged she had voiced her frustration over receiving ads for services she says don't pertain to her.

    "I lowkey hate seeing ads that don't apply to me. Keep getting promos for Good & Co, an app that helps people get jobs. Lol no thanks," the tweet, which Jenner said she never wrote, reads.

    “This is a fake a-- tweet to get some publicity,’ she tweeted to her 18 million followers.

    In the screengrab, the app company responds to the tweet with the ultimate diss: "Sorry you have to deal with our ads, but we're here to help people! (We can't all get paid off selfies and FitTea promotions)."

    However, a representative for the company Good & Co. told the Daily News that the screengrabs of the exchange were actually "fan-made."

    "We are very sorry that Kylie is upset about the fan-made tweet exchange that cropped up on Tumblr," the company said in a statement to The News.

    The brand ultimately made a post to its blog centered around Jenner's cosmetics brand.

    Either way, the snarky response ultimately succeeded in bringing publicity to the brand, with one user even writing, “just downloaded your app after seeing you drag @KylieJenner. You're the kind of people whose help I'll gladly accept.”

    The posts struck a nerve with Jenner, who clearly isn’t a fan of giving publicity for free, when she continued a Twitter tirade against the company.

    "Fake as f--k stop it @ingoodco.. unprofessional," she tweeted, along with screengrabs of the made-up altercation.

    Reps for Jenner did not respond to a request for comment.

    Plot twist:
    This is actually a paid ad...

    She keeps on mentioning/linking to their brand. Either she's is really stupid or paid for.

    I really dislike the Jenner/Kardashians. It's not enough that they made an entire generation of women think it's cool to go out hoeing around, but they're always in the spotlight.

    Idk dude. Probably. I'm still laughing at the fact that she was robbed at gun point.

    If it was a fact at all. :p

    Her nice 'n round big ol' booty is a fact though, maybe not real, but still a fact. lol

    I don't really have too much against the Kardashians. Strictly from a marketing POV it's rather fascinating how they can make money out of big fucking nothing. It's something like IM methods with little to no investment yet insane ROI. :)

    Right. She could have lied about it for the publicity. I wouldn't put it past her.

    That family will do anything for attention.

    She wasn't robbed. That shit was plotted. In the years her & Ye have been famous, there's never been one flaw in their security and the ONE time there is there's a Ocean's Eleven style robbery and the thieves are never found?

    I know you're smarter than that. It was funny to watch her cry, yes, but it was staged.

    now that is blackhat marketing! give the public what they want and take the profit.

    btw, women can, and do, make up their own minds. nobody made them "think" in a specific way.

    Now that's just not thinking clearly mate. Think of it like this: Back in the day, when TV commercials were much fewer than they are now, there was a Tang commercial that used to come on. What were all kids doing back then? Drinking Tang. Why? According to the commercials, it was drank by astronauts and if you drank it maybe you could be one too. The Kardashians publicists employed the same concept with Kim after her sex tape spread around.

    You mean if you drink Tang you'll become a whore? Is that why they call it "Tang"?

    While I was typing that out, I was like I bet he's gonna make that relation and skip the entire concept. Tang was good though.
