Kylie soon faced backlash on Twitter, after people noticed the tone of her skin appeared darker than her natural hue.

People accused her of Blackfishing, which is a form of cultural appropriation and Blackface, resulting from purposely wearing makeup that's often several shades too dark. It's basically when a white person tries to use makeup to appear Black or mixed.

how many times we gotta reiterate that the Jenner daughters are just WHITE. mayo white. not a bit of ethnic white. Kris and Caitlyn are straight up gringos. Kylie’s blackfishing is even more egregious because she as white as white can be.

This person jokingly claimed that Kylie was wearing Fenty #420 — a foundation shade that is clearly not Kylie's natural skin tone.

"The Mulattofication of White Womanhood," one person said, garnering thousands of likes.

One person even joked that Rachel Dolezal — the woman who infamously pretended to be Black and even became the president of an NAACP chapter in Spokane, Washington — can play Kylie in her biopic.

And a super-viral tweet referenced the former Little Mix member Jesy Nelson controversy, who went viral last week after she was accused of Blackfishing and was defended by Nicki Minaj:

This is not the first time Kylie faced this type of backlash. Just last year, she was accused of Blackfishing and trying to copy Beyoncé's look after posting these photos on Instagram:

Kylie has not responded to the Blackfishing accusations, but we will update you if she does.
