Is Hairstyle Appropriation A Thing?

The Kardashian/Jenner clan has received a lot of backlash for their cultural appropriation, especially when they’ve chosen to remain silent on Black issues.

Kylie Jenner posted a picture with bright red cornrows, and while we shouldn’t be surprised at this point, it still doesn’t make it right.

Khloe Kardashian then posted a picture with her hair in bantu knots, a hairstyle that originated from the South African Zulu tribe. We highly doubt Khloe even knows that.


Basically, we just wish credit was given when it’s due. 

TELL US: Would you consider this culture appropriation? Or can these ladies choose any hairstyle that they please?
