Kylie Jenner, social media starlet and former billionaire, has shown she’s mere human by forgetting what the Australian flag looks like.
You have to give celebrities a break sometimes. I mean it’s a hard life running a cosmetics empire whilst simultaneously owning the 5th most-followed Instagram account in the world – all the while being a certified
billionaire millionaire. It’s not like you have people on hand 24/7 to help you run your social accounts, except that, well, you do.
The post in question was announcing new Kylie Skin websites in the UK, Germany, France and Australia. Each country was accompanied by its corresponding flag, except for Australia which was matched with the obscure Atlantic Ocean island, South Georgia.
hi guys, my team is working hard on my @kylieskin sites for the UK, Germany, France and Australia and we have a new launch date of October 7! 🤍 can’t wait!

In her defence, the two flags do look rather similar. But Twitter was never going to let her live it down:
who’s gonna tell her that ain’t the australian flag 😭😭😭

Some pointed out that it’s an exceedingly hard screw up to make, considering if you just type the word ‘Australia’ into your phone, the emoji automatically comes up:
Hi Kylie, my team wants to let you know that, that is not the Australian flag. My team also wants to let you know that if you type the word “Australia” in your phone the Australian flag will automatically come up. 🇦🇺 💁🏽♂️

Omg Kylie! Doesn’t your phone predict the emojis? This is the Australian flag 🇦🇺

Others took a moment to celebrate South Georgia and its surrounding South Sandwich Islands.
Not Kylie using the South Georgia flag instead of the Australian flag. 🇬🇸🇦🇺 https://t.co/pmDqwlw7Xi

HUGE moment for the Southern Sandwich Islands, though, whose flag that is.

And of course there’s always room for an old classic:

In all reality, it probably wasn’t even Jenner that made the post. But still, you love to see it.
