It’s no secret that the Kardashians have a long and complex history of cultural appropriation.
“I’m EXHAUSTED of white people constantly appropriating black culture and wearing hairstyles we are always ridiculed/chastised for having,” wrote one person on Twitter.
The Twitter user went on to voice frustration that Kendall and others wear cornrows to “look cool”, when actually the style was designed to protect natural hair.
Another person criticised Kendall for “exploiting and stealing from black women” by wearing the hairstyles. Others said that they were unsurprised that Kendall was “back at it with cultural appropriation”.
While some said they were disappointed having defended her in the past.
And many people expressed frustration that the Kardashian/Jenners appear to “never learn” from the criticism.
This isn’t the first time Kendall has been called out for cultural insensitivity. Most famously she starred in the 2017 Pepsi advert in which she stopped a protest by handing an armed police officer a can of the soft drink.
And shortly after that, she and Kylie were branded “culture vultures” for modelling a shirt from their clothing collection in a style that’s largely associated with the Mexican cholo/chola culture.
They were also criticised for including T-shirts with their faces laid over images of iconic black artists like Biggie Smalls in the same collection.
