Kylie Jenner Has Cornrows Again Despite Being Called Out For Cultural Appropriation Three Times Before
OK, this is getting out of hand.
Last month, Kylie Jenner faced fierce criticism after she posed for this photo in which her hair was braided into cornrows.
The star was accused of cultural appropriation by fans and celebrities alike. In fact, it wasn't long before The Hunger Games actor Amandla Stenberg weighed in with this comment.
Kylie, however, didn't really care and responded with this dig.
Following the exchange, Amandla went on to write a powerful blog post detailing how cultural appropriation feels when you're a woman of colour.
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.
