Butt-bearing latex, plastic doll vibes and... a wheelchair? Kylie Jenner's brand spanking new Interview magazine cover is breaking the internet but for all the wrong reasons.

Kylie Jenner's questionable photoshoot for Interview magazine has sparked outrage on social media and quite frankly, we're not surprised.

In one shot for her latest cover spread by Steven Klein, Kylie is dressed up dominatrix style in a latex bodice and choker while riding in on... a gold plated wheelchair. We're all for creative vision and all but ableism? That's going too far.

Obviously, Twitter erupted with people keen to share their outrage for glamorising disability and dressing it up as a fashion statement.

The magazine defended its decision to feature Kylie posing in a wheelchair for their December/January issue because it explores the way she is both objectified by media scrutiny.

"At Interview, we are proud of our tradition of working with great artists and empowering them to realise their distinct and often bold visions," a spokesperson told The Independent.

"The Kylie Jenner cover by Steven Klein, which references the British artist Allen Jones, is a part of this tradition, placing Kylie in a variety of positions of power and control and exploring her image as an object of vast media scrutiny."

What are your thoughts? Is it a creative nod to the crippling fame Kylie's been subject to? Or just plain ignorant? Tweet us @sofeminineUK
