Why Kylie Jenner's Latest Instagram Photo Is Causing Controversy
Kylie Jenner is getting backlash over some of her recent Instagram photos.
The youngest Kardashian-Jenner shared photos of herself on Thursday, wearing a hooded neon green leopard dress from Tom Ford with her hair in loose curls — and people immediately began calling her out for appearing to have tanned skin, and calling out her resemblance to Beyoncé in the photos.
A few comments on her Instagram read, "I know I’m not the only black girl disturbed by this," and, "You serving black face tea, honey." Another person on Twitter commented, adding context
Jenner has been accused of blackfishing, a term used for a white person accused of trying to look black or mixed-race on social media.
It's not the first time the 22-year-old has been accused of appropriating black culture. Earlier this year, she was called out when she shared a photo of herself from an old photoshoot wearing her platinum blonde hair in protective twists. She then quickly deleted the photo after backlash ensued.
Jenner has yet to respond to the most recent controversy, nor has she taken the photos down.
