Kim Kardashian Accused Of Cultural Appropriation After Getting Braids

People are pissed about what she called the style, too.

Kim Kardashian has found herself at the center of controversy yet again. This time, it isn't her selfie habit  or her social media beefs that have attracted backlash — it's her hairstyle.

Over the weekend, the reality TV star took a break from rocking her ice blond bob to debut her newest look: a beaded, braided style, which she called "Bo Derek braids."

"So, guys, I did Bo Derek braids, and I'm really into it," Kim said in a Snapchat video, referencing Derek's iconic role in the 1979 film 10.

Kim was quickly called out for appropriating Fulani braids, a style of braiding created by the Fulani people of West Africa, and then mislabeling the look by giving credit to a white actress who herself appropriated the style.

Others defended Kim adopting the hairstyle and raved about her new look.

Kim has yet to comment on the controversy.
