Last week, Kim Kardashian unsurprisingly pissed off a lot of people.
We say unsurprisingly, because not only do people love to hate on her, but she should have definitely known better. Kim turned up to the 2018 MTV Awards with her hair completely braided in cornrows... something she has been slammed for in the past.
Fans immediately started calling her out for the blatant cultural appropriation.
"Kim Kardashian in these braids is exhausting," one person tweeted. "The most annoying part is that at this point she knows what she’s doing, she knows what cultural appropriation is and that it upsets people yet she still chooses to do it because she knows it doesn’t upset the right ppl or cost her $$."
However, Kim has come to her own defence.
She admits that she wasn't "trying to disrespect someone's culture" with the hair, but instead explained the decision came from her daughter North West.
"I actually did that look because North said she wanted braids and asked if I would do them with her," she explained to Bustle. "So we braided her hair and then we braided my hair. In no way am I ever trying to disrespect someone’s culture by wearing braids. If anything, my daughter was so excited to see me get matching braids with her. When we did her hair in these braids, she was so excited."
She continued, "I know the origin of where they came from and I’m totally respectful of that. I’m not tone deaf to where I don’t get it. I do get it."
So there ya go.
