Kim Kardashian Accused Of Cultural Appropriation After Getting Braids

Kim Kardashian can't seem to stay out of trouble!

If you don't know, Bo starred in the 1979 film 10, where she wore her blonde hair in beaded cornrows on the beach.

A few commentators pointed out that it was a never-ending battle for the black community, adding: "Kim Kardashian got on Fulani braids and called them "Bo Derek" braids".

Kim was quickly called out for appropriating Fulani braids, a style of braiding created by the Fulani people of West Africa, and then mislabeling the look by giving credit to a white actress who herself appropriated the style. Can someone tell her to stop appropriating our culture cause Kanye clearly ain't. Smh.




For what feels like the billionth time, Kim Kardashian has been accused of cultural appropriation after she referred to cornrows as "Bo Derek braids". "Kim Kardashian on snap talking bout her Fulani braids are 'Bo-Derek braids, ' while she got 3 black children I CANT tonight", one Twitter user wrote, while another said, "Kim Kardashian about to hear it from black Twitter". The "Bo Derick" braids come months after the star was accused of blackface in November after she unveiled a handful of promotional images for her makeup line, KKW Beauty. The mother-of-three was called out for allegedly darkening her skin tone to promote her creme contour & highlight kit.

Though she "covers up" the nipple area by blurring it out. it's pretty obvious not much is really "covered up" at all. "I used an awesome photographer and a team of people".

The image, shot in Malibu, showed Kim stretched out and carefully posed against a rocky backdrop. "No one mentioned it".

Kardashian's sisters Kylie Jenner and Khloé Karadashian have also been accused of cultural appropriation in the past for sporting cornrows and bantu knots.
