There comes a point when being a super famous supermodel becomes too much. Too much exposure. Too many runways. Too many tabloids. Too many hot boyfriends. In response, people become tired of seeing their immaculately strobed faces bounce down runways. People become exhausted flipping through magazines, only to see them on every other page.

So, naturally, there is backlash.

That's what two of our foremost super famous supermodels — BFFs Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner — are facing. And that was never so clear as when Vogue U.K. tweeted a story Wednesday with the question, "Who said that Kendall and Gigi are not 'true supermodels'?" 

The story itself was about how former model Rebecca Romijn isn't too keen on the twosome. 

But social media had other ideas. In response to Vogue U.K.'s pointed question about who doubts their credibility, hundreds of commenters flocked to say, well, "everyone."

Hundreds and hundreds of people flocked to tweet that "everyone" — and we mean "everyone" — doesn't think they're "true supermodels." Is this one of the only instances in which the internet was in full agreement? Maybe.

And do we understand why that is? Well, kinda.

In a world increasingly embracing models who do break the norm — who may be plus size or a model of color or have a disability or who, we don't know, have a slightly compelling story — Jenner and Hadid still reign supreme.

They are walking in Chanel. They are posing in Diane Von Furstenberg. They were born into money, coddled into the industry and, well, yeah, it's easy to see why people are peeved. 

But in any case, let this be an example of people of the internet coming together for once. Glad we could share this time together.
