Kylie Jenner has been charged with cultural appropriation – again. The reality star was criticized after sharing a photo back where she wore a blonde wig with twists (miniature two-strand braids). Although Kylie deleted the photo after the backlash, her makeup artist Ariel Tejada kept the photo on her Instagram page. Some of Kylie’s supporters were angry that her hair was twisted. The Kardashian Jenner sisters often wear their hair in cornrows, despite the ensuing backlash.
Ariel said it was a photo back on Thursday, but did not say when the photo was captured; however, it was from a 2019 photo shoot for Paper magazine. Ariel also said that Tokyo Stylez helped create the look in tribute to Gwen Stefani.
Still, some people found it offensive that Kylie wore her hair in braids or twists – a style very popular in African American culture. The game was enough for Kylie to delete the photo even though others have kept it online and continue to share it.
The Kardashian / Jenner sisters are often accused of wanting to be African-American. Others contend that braids are just a hairstyle that people of all ethnicities can wear, but since Kylie deleted her photo so quickly, many took this as a sign that Kylie had somehow admitted to having done something. wrong thing.

What do you think of the photo? In addition to the braids, some people felt that Kylie looked too attractive in the photo. She stuck her tongue out to the side and wore a green and white checkered shirt that fell from one shoulder.
Do you think it’s wrong for Kylie Jenner to wear her hair braided or in cornrows? Is it wrong for her to wear wigs and hairpieces that look like African American hairstyles?
Did Kylie Jenner do the right thing by deleting the photo, or should she have left it and stood up?
