The model and fashion icon is getting called out for faux wokeness on Instagram. Does her liberal leaning include marijuana consumption?
Karlie Kloss has had a complicated relationship with fame. Earning acclaim for her work as a Victoria’s Secret model, being Taylor Swift’s best friend, and a speaker for women wishing to work in male dominated fields like technology, her online presence took a turn in 2018.
That’s when Kloss married Josh Kushner, brother of Jared Kushner, also known as Ivanka Trump’s husband and President Trump’s senior advisor.
“I cannot see Karlie wearing it anywhere, honestly.”

While Kloss normally doesn’t acknowledge the Trump family on social media, she recently uploaded a Cleo Wade quote on Instagram, using it to call out racism, and informing her followers that proceeds of the sales of prints would go to The Antiracist Research & Policy Center. Not surprisingly, Kloss’s post caused a lot of outrage.
“Karlie, give it a rest,” actress and writer Tavi Gevinson commented. “You have a lot of nerve to make a show of championing girls’ coding and your other causes while only politely disowning your family in public (lmao @ you ignoring ivanka on social media; she still went to your wedding). I can’t believe you’re not more embarrassed not just by them but YOUR decision to only publicly disown their politics in polite ways so you can have it both ways.”

But what we want to know is: does Karlie Kloss smoke weed?
As expected, Kloss has a very clean social media presence. Most of her posts are related to her work in “Project Runway” or personal projects. There’s not a lot of spontaneous images circulating around the internet of her, especially no photos of her smoking a joint.
In 2019 Josh Kushner’s company, Thrive Capital, made an investment in marijuana, leading a $35 million fundraiser for LeafLink, a New York based marketplace for buyers and sellers of marijuana. Although not much was said regarding Kushner’s position with the drug, an investment of that size suggests that he’s all in for marijuana legalization.

Sadly, that’s about it for Kloss’s connections with marijuana, unless you want to count this trailer of Bill Nye’s science show where Kloss is a guest and Nye is conducting experiments with weed.
Even before she was involved with the President’s family, Kloss was never one to get too personal on social media. Now, with her awkward position as a Democrat and liberal who’s married into a prominent Republican family, it seems very unlikely that she’ll open up to any controversy, including weed.
