AceShowbiz – Kim Kardashian was seemingly not apologetic after she was previously accused of cultural appropriation for sporting braids. The reality TV star showed up with the same hairstyle when she attended Kanye West‘s Yeezy show as part of Paris Fashion Week on Monday, March 2.
The 39-year-old teamed her waist-length braids with a nude-colored crop top, a thick jacket and gray pants. Her hair matched the hairstyles of her daughter North West and niece Penelope Disick, who were both also spotted in Paris with Kim’s sister Kourtney Kardashian.
Needless to say, Kim’s controversial hairstyle sparked criticism on social media. “okay at first I was defending her saying she may be trying to go for the brown middle eastern look since she can pass for looking middle eastern, but this is straight up blackfishing though,” one person tweeted.
“How does she keep getting away with it,” another commented. Someone else wrote, “Bruh why do you keep doing this? You think she’d learn. Put your hair up in a high pony and go to the fashion show like everyone else.”
“I can’t stand Kim k and her damn braids like b***h when are y’all gonna stop appropriating our culture,” one other user complained. “YOU ARE NOT BLACK,” someone strongly reminded Kim.
And doubling down the offense, Kim shared throwback photos on Instagram featuring her rocking braids during a photo shoot. “Flash Back to my shoot with Vanessa Beecroft,” she captioned the post.
Responding to this, a person wrote, “She real wack… she posted this and then popped up with braids AGAIN… Does she not get tired of stealing Black women? kim kardashian is relying on Black outrage to keep her relevant and it fucking shows.”
Kim has not responded to the latest controversy, but she has previously defended her “Bo Derek braids.” She said in 2018, “Obviously know they’re called Fulani braids and I know the origin of where they came from and I’m totally respectful of that.” She added, “I’m not tone deaf to where I don’t get it. I do get it…In no way am I ever trying to disrespect anyone’s culture by wearing braids.”
