Kendall Jenner styled her hair in cornrows again and it wasn’t long before social media users slammed the model for cultural appropriation.
On August 23, the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star was photographed out in Los Angeles — and on her Instagram page — with her hair in cornrows.
Jenner was slammed with one person saying “she never learns.”
“I’m EXHAUSTED of white people constantly appropriating black culture and wearing hairstyles that we are always ridiculed/ chastised for having and just doing it because they want to ‘look different’ or ‘stand out,’ ”said another. “We wear these hairstyles to PROTECT our natural hair from damages but they wanna wear it because it looks cool. It shouldn’t be worn by them period.”
Others defended her choice to style her hair how she wants.
Jenner’s rep did not immediately respond to ET Canada’s request for comment.
Her half-sister Kim Kardashian West came under fire last year over the same topic. She first said she could give “zero f**ks” over the rants but then further explained her style choice at BeautyCon 2018.
“I’ve definitely had my fair share of backlash when I’ve worn braids,” Kardashian said. “I’ve been fortunate to be able to travel around the world and see so many different cultures that have so many different beauty trends.”
“My daughter actually loves braids, like this last time I wore [them], she helps me pick out a look and will show me pictures. I just think if it comes from a place of love and you’re using it as cultural inspiration, then I think it is okay,” she continued. “Sometimes I think maybe if you don’t communicate where you got the inspiration from — and I’ve done that in the past — then people might not understand it.
“I think as long as it comes from a place of love and you’re getting inspired, then it is okay.”
