The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star shared a
video of herself getting ready — .
and her followers quickly noticed there was something a bit off about the footage.
“Don’t judge me for my pale hand,” she said in an Instagram story video as she applied lip gloss.
There is a noticeable difference between
the shade of makeup on her face
and her hand’s skin tone.
Many claimed the photo was an example of blackfishing — .
or enhancing one's appearance
through makeup and hairstyles
to appear as if you have Black heritage.
“She’s so in denial of her true skin color,” one twitter user said.
Others didn’t think the video
was that big of a deal.
“Yeah it doesn’t match her hands but don’t make this what it isn’t,” one Twitter user wrote.
Kardashian West hasn’t addressed the response to her video yet, but it’s not the first time she’s been accused of cultural appropriation either.
In 2018, she defended
her choice to wear braids
to the MTV Movie & TV Awards.
“In no way am I ever trying to disrespect anyone’s culture.”
