Khloé Kardashian Wore Those Marc Jacobs Dreadlocks And People Are Pissed

"Black culture isn't a fucking fashion trend. STOP."

Last month Marc Jacobs caused anger when his latest runway show featured white models such as Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss wearing dyed dreadlock extensions.

People said that the addition of dreadlocks on white models smacked of cultural appropriation.

okay but like y'all think black people w/ dreads are thugs and gross but when a white person does it for marc jacobs it's fashion????? wyd

And many were disappointed that Marc Jacobs didn't just hire women of colour to walk in the show.

Like Marc Jacobs couldn't just cast black women who already have dreads 😐

Well, now Khloé Kardashian has added to the controversy by posting a feature on her website in which she tries out some of the looks worn during the spring runway shows. Including the dreadlocks.

See me try the hottest beauty looks from the Spring runway shows 😂 https://t.co/TaaKzm1lRN

In the feature she says she "despises" the way she looks with dreadlocks.

Khloé writes:

I absolutely despise this on me! I think dreads are really cool but the rainbow combined with the dreads is just too much on me. But how cute is my little Kenny with her dreads walking in the show?! Werk sissy, werk!!

And people were quick to call her out on it.

Some asked her to stop.

While others just simply said "No".

Or let Kim Kardashian do the talking.

Others pointed out that Khloé has been accused of cultural appropriation before.

I am so completely shocked to see Khloe Kardashian promoting cultural appropriation. She's never done that before.

In fact, just this week Khloé was criticised for wearing Bantu knots on the latest episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

E!

Khloe Kardashian had the audacity to wear her hair in Bantu knots. The cultural appropriation is sky high.

AND people were pissed off yesterday when Khloé shared this photo of her and her friends dressed up in their Halloween costumes – including a guy in traditional Arabian clothing.

Especially since it's the SAME GUY from last year's Halloween selfie, which Khloé captioned "Sheik Pussy", which caused outrage then too.

And most of an episode of KUWTK was dedicated to Khloé clarifying why it could be perceived as offensive – and then issuing an apology.

E!

She said: "After talking with Nazy and Durrani, I’m really upset that I’ve offended anybody. I’m even more bothered that the commenters think I’m poking fun at their culture. I didn’t realise how offensive it was. I didn’t know I was doing anything wrong. I really just have to be more aware of what I write, even if I think it’s tongue-in-cheek and I have to be more sensitive to that. I’m sorry to anybody I offended. That was the last thing I ever wanted to do.”

However, some people did jump to Khloé's defence.

Y'all leave my girl khloe kardashian alone
