Kylie Jenner has millions of followers. She is closely followed by all her fans and every single picture of her gets noticed. However, her recent picture got her in trouble. She did a sultry photoshoot sporting hair twists and that called her some flak. This hairstyle is commonly considered as a protective style in the black community. So, Kylie received backlash for the same and got accused of cultural appropriation. Fans blamed her for trying very hard to be a black woman.
Kylie as soon as she received backlash deleted the picture from all her social media account . However, fans had already noticed it and all went blaming her for cultural appropriation. One user wrote, "The cultural appropriation jumped out." Another user wrote, "she wants to be a black woman so bad". However, some also came out in her defense as a user wrote, "Honestly it’s hair. Who’s to say one hairstyle can only be worn by one culture? You’re right it’s 2020 so stop being so sensitive & just let people wear their hair how they wanna wear their hair as long as the intent isn’t to disrespect a culture, who cares? #KylieJenner."

This is not for the first time that Kylie Jenner has been accused of cultural appropriation. In the past, she has been often called out for the same whenever she has sported specific hairstyles. She even got slammed when in the past she had darkened her skin for a specific photoshoot. Well, it won't be wrong to say that Kylie is not new to all this!
