KENDALL Jenner has been called out on TikTok after a woman claimed she found a dead fly in a sealed bottle of the star's 818 tequila brand.

TikToker @kait_tc, real name Kaitlyn, posted a video on Saturday of her 818 tequila in which she zoomed into the winged bug in her allegedly sealed bottle.

"You're doing great sweetie," she joked in the caption, tagging Jenner.

"Kendall, serious question," the video began.

"Here's my new bottle of tequila, sealed, unopened. I went to go enjoy a nice shot and I see this floater just hangin' out and about in the bottle."

She adds that "[i]t looks like he's gone through it 'cause he only has one wing left."

"Someone's shot was gonna hit extra hard," Kaitlyn continued.

The post went viral with hundreds of users commenting on the clip and targeting Jenner.

"Do better honeyyyyyyy," one wrote.

"Okay but the jokes on u cuz u bought it," said another user.

"First mistake was buying Kendall's tequila," one person claimed.

"I guess she couldn't afford to put a scorpion or at least a worm."

'GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE'

Others defended the model, pointing out that she wouldn't package the tequila herself.

"Everybody acting like it's Kendall's fault that one bottle had something," one user noted.

Kaitlyn has since revealed that 818 were in touch with her after she posted the video in an attempt to rectify the situation.

She said in a video posted on Tuesday that she was asked for her address and an 818 representative visited her with new bottles of tequila and a branded jacket.

"Such great customer service," she said.

The company confirmed in a comment to The Sun that they had been in touch with Kaitlyn and noted that the video of her free merchandise now has as many views as the original.

"We've been in touch with Kaitlyn and have provided her with a new bottle of 818."

“Bottling is performed in an artisanal environment that is not perfect, incidents like this are extremely rare but they can happen," 818 said.

"We’re transparent about our tequila-making process and will continue to uphold the highest standards of health and safety from the day we plant the agaves to when the bottles of 818 tequila are sustainably packaged to share with the world.

"We've been in touch with Kaitlyn and have provided her with a new bottle of 818."

Jenner had received backlash online even before the tequila brand officially launched.

She was accused of cultural appropriation over the ads promoting the drink.

In the ads, Jenner was featured riding a horse through a field, sitting on a pile of harvested agave plants, and on the edge of the bed of a beat-up pickup truck.

She was wearing her hair in braids and a sombrero around her neck, leading critics to fire back that she was playing into a stereotype of Mexican people.

The model deleted her own Instagram post but the ad still remains on YouTube.

It followed controversy over a 2017 Pepsi ad in which Jenner was accused of implying police brutality could be solved with a can of soda.
