Kylie Jenner Has Cornrows Again Despite Being Called Out For Cultural Appropriation Three Times Before

OK, this is getting out of hand.

Posted on

Last month, Kylie Jenner faced fierce criticism after she posed for this photo in which her hair was braided into cornrows.

Following the exchange, Amandla went on to write a powerful blog post detailing how cultural appropriation feels when you're a woman of colour.

She wrote:

Black features are beautiful. Black women are not. White women are paragons of virtue and desire. Black women are objects of fetishism and brutality. This at least seems to be the mentality surrounding black femininity and beauty in a society built upon eurocentric beauty standards. While white women are praised for altering their bodies, plumping their lips and tanning their skin, black women are shamed although the same features exist on them naturally.

Kylie and Pia then shared this Snapchat of themselves in which the cornrows were still visible – and Snapchats are much harder to erase from the internet.

It wasn't long before people took to Twitter to express their annoyance.

Kylie Jenner once again sported corn rows *sigh folks never learn 😒

kylie jenner needs to stop with the cornrows and take a lesson in cultural appropriation

Hey now that @KylieJenner is finally 18, she can finally be accounted for her cultural appropriation!!!

Kylie Jenner has done nothing for this generation except make cultural appropriation seem okay when it is 100% not

Why does everyone ignore Kylie Jenner's blatant repetitive racist cultural appropriation because she's pretty and famous, not coooool

@Animerica culture APPROPRIATION, Which is Kylie Jenner having cornrows or henna w/o showing any awareness of the culture it has hailed from

There were others who took to Twitter to defend Kylie.

i am all for calling out cultural appropriation but honestly people take it too far. for instance that one time kylie jenner wore corn rows

People take Kylie jenner pics way too serious. She had braids in her hair because she had a wig on. Not cultural appropriation .

This latest incident makes it the third time Kylie has been accused of cultural appropriation.

Back in April, Kylie, her make-up artist, and her hair stylist shared these images from a photo shoot.

And it wasn't long before she began trending on Twitter, with many people accusing her of looking as though she was wearing blackface.

Ppl who don't see a problem with Kylie's photo need to educate themselves. Cultural appropriation is not "art".

how is kylie jenner dumb enough to do blackface, post it on IG, with the caption "what i wish i looked like all the time" i need sit down

She was also called out when she shared this selfie of her wearing a bindi – traditionally worn by Hindus.

At coachella they should have bindi detectors and if it goes off you have to attend a 2 hour seminar on cultural appropriation

"hell yea lets wear some more bindis and headdresses and appropriate some more cultures" -basically every girl at coachella
