Kim Kardashian is a pop culture icon. She became popular thanks to the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and she managed to change her look completely throughout the years.
From a trendily-dressed starlet to a classy-dressed woman, Kim often sets fashion trends rather than following them.
However, her style was criticized many times. Over the past years, Kim has been slammed for cultural appropriation.
It most recently happened over a controversial hairstyle.
Even though she has millions of fans from all over the world, she is not new to receiving strong criticism.
One of the biggest scandals happened during the initial announcement of Kimssss shapewear line.
The star announced that the name of her shapewear line is going to be “Kimono,” which made her Japanese fans furious.
After hearing the criticism, she changed the name of the line to “SKIMS,” but the damage was done.
However, the shapewear line was a huge hit.
Many say that she “tries too hard to appear biracial.”
In some of her cover shoots for magazines, she has appeared to be a few shades darker than her natural skin tone, so some people to accuse her of “blackfishing.” Recently, Kim wore a hairstyle, which brought her many negative comments.
Kim wore her hair in waist-length cornrows at the Yeezy Season 8 presentation in Paris.
Even though the star got a lot of blowback for the look, several people actually defended her. Ray J and his sister Brandy were interviewed on an episode of The Talk and said that in their opinion, Kim is not guilty of cultural appropriation.
Ray J said: “I just think that, if you are paying homage to another culture by you know, rocking the braids, I think it’s a compliment.”
