Kylie Jenner has posted a picture of herself wearing cornrows, again. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star shared a throwback picture of herself wearing a purple bikini with the caption “I can’t believe this was almost a year ago????”. Kylie Jenner was wearing big glares and green nail polish. The fans praised her hourglass figure, but there were few others who blasted her for cultural appropriation.
One said: “As black human beings as the most devalued lives of society it is not offensive for us to adapt to make ourselves have white features. Because white features are what black people have felt pressure to assimilate to for generations in an effort to have our presence be valued and seen as equals to white lives. It is more than just hair. It is our culture that has devalued us as humans when it is ours, but admired when it is used by a wealthy white girl. You say she is simply loving other cultures. Why is it that she can love and bring attention to black looks that are in trend, but not bring attention to the disparities of the culture? That isn’t love. That’s using our culture as a prop to fit her aesthetic.”
Some other were full of sarcasm: “So people are mad because she’s stealing their culture and “doing it better”?no. She’s stealing their cultures because she doesn’t have one.”
“It’s fine to like it if one remembers the history of brutality that preceded the acceptance of the minority culture originating a ‘look’.”
This is not the first time Kylie Jenner has posted a picture of herself wearing cornrows though. She had shared a picture of herself with the controversial hairdo in her private jet, a week ago. Her fans did not hesitate to criticize her even back then. One of them commented: “Wear cornrows. Dates black men. Profits off of black artists. Makes no mention of black lives matter.” Surely, Kylie Jenner hasn’t learned from her mistakes. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been spotted wearing her hair such one too many times and it looks like her fans will never be okay with it.
It looks like Kylie Jenner is not going to pay heed to what her fans think of her hairstyle. She has made inroads into the world of fashion by launching her own line of lip color and is consistently revising it. Kylie Jenner recently shared the new shades of her lip shades. She has added four more to the already existing line of lip color. She captioned the picture: “First surprise of the summer! My 4 new glosses inspired by my existing matte shades. Top to bottom: KoKo gloss, Exposed gloss, Candy gloss, Posie gloss. Launching next week July 15th????”.
She has never been shy about her love for makeup and the Inquisitr had reported that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star loves to use a lot of mascara. “A slick of Lancôme mascara to thicken my lashes and a spritz of Kim’s perfume (it’s my favorite scent ever and I always get compliments on it) and I’m good to go.”
Kylie Jenner is definitely not humble when it comes to talking about her achievements. “I don’t know, I mean it’s hard. I do a lot but it’s all fun and I love what I do, so it’s cool. I feel like I’ve done a lot and achieved a lot already somehow,” she says.
Do you think Kylie Jenner should re-think her decision to wear cornrows?
