Kylie Jenner's Company Is Being Sued AGAIN Because Of "Accessibility Issues "

Kylie Inc. just caught another lawsuit...
Whatever happens at the end of this year, we just hope that Kylie Jenner's legal team is getting a HUGE Christmas bonus because my god, they've had a busy year.
What is it now? Kylie's company, Kylie Inc. (not Kylie Kristen Jenner herself, by the way) is being sued because the website, KylieCosmetics.com, is not compatible with the screen reader software that is often used by people with visual impairments when surfing the internet.
Antionette Suchenko, who has been legally blind for over 20 years, claimed that the website is incompatible with screen reader software and has made it impossible for her to buy any of Kylie’s cosmetics range.
Apparently, Antoinette isn't looking for any cash from the lawsuit, she just wants Kylie to take notice and make sure her site is up to the standards required by the Americans with Disabilities Act so that other impaired customers can actually shop her collection.
In case you didn't know, US law stipulates that all commercial businesses must be accessible for impaired and disabled users - whether that be the physically handicapped, blind or deaf. The law was aimed primarily at buildings and was introduced in 2000 when websites weren't really a thing. But now, more and more people are finding themselves unable to use the e-commerce sites so they're suing them instead because it kind of "violates" the ADA.
It's not the first time this has happened, and it's not the first time it's happened to a member of the Kardashian-Jenner family either. Last year, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe's online store DASH was reportedly hit with a lawsuit for the same reason.
