Kim Kardashian Rocks “Bo Derek” Dreadlocks, Hears It From Haters

Stop us if you’ve heard this before, but…

… a member of the Kardashian-Jenner family has been accused of cultural appropriation.

This term is applied when a (typically white) individual doesn’t copy a certain style made popular by someone from a different background of out respect or as some kind of tribute.

But does so instead to simply further him or herself; for self-promotional reasons only.

It’s most commonly used to slam Caucasians for “stealing” something from African-Americans, usually a look or a theme.

Like dreadlocks.

It should not be a controversial statement to say that dreadlocks were made popular by African-American women. It is this section of society that basically created the hairdo.

So this brings us to Kim Kardashian.

She shared the following photo a few hours ago on Snapchat:

Even worse (in the eyes of critics), she wrote the following caption along with it:

“So guys, I did Bo Derek braids and I’m really into it.”

Short… but not very sweet, based on the reaction of many Internet users.

The mention of Bo Derek is a reference to the veteran actress and her role in the 1970s movie 10.

And it’s very much true that Derek rocked some serious braids for that film, as you can see here:

But many comments left on Kim’s video took major issue with Kardashian giving Derek any sort of credit for inventing this style of hair.

“Kim Kardashian on snap talking bout her Fulani braids are ‘Bo-Derek braids,’ while she got 3 black children I CANT tonight,” one Twitter user wrote, while another chimed in with:

“Kim Kardashian about to hear it from black Twitter. She’ll have them braids out by Tuesday, along with an apology saying how she didn’t mean to offend anyone.”

That’s probably true.

Here’s a look at some of the more harsh responses:

Kardashian and her sisters have a long history of this sort of thing.

In October, Kourtney was slammed for dressing up like Michael Jackson for Halloween.

In August of 2016, Khloe heard it from haters when it came to her hair.

And remember when Kendall and Kylie Jenner tried to profit off Tupac and Biggle? YIKES.

You can agree or disagree with critics who have come down hard on Kardashian for this latest look.

And you can also scroll through the photos below to compare and contrast past unique hairstyles.

But we can all agree on one thing: Kim Kardashian looks best nude.


Khloe Kardashian Claps Back at Haters: Mind Your Own Business!

Khloe Kardashian is pregnant with her first child, but that’s not stopping her from staying in shape. 

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has garnered a reputation for showing off her workout sessions on social media. 

The thing is, she has a lot of fans who look up to her, and those fans probably like to know how she stays in shape, so the whole things makes sense. 

On Tuesday, Kardashian hit up Twitter to lash out at a fan who claimed that her workout regime could “cause some trauma” to her growing child. 

“No it cannot! My doctor has instructed me to do so,” the reality TV star said in her epic rant. 

“Why does everyone on social media think they are a physician?? Why would I do anything to do that? If you don’t know mind your business.”

Khloe Hits Back

Khloe then directed her followers to a Fit Pregnancy article which promoted the benefits of working out while pregnant. That tweet also included some more words from her. 

“For the ones who think they are physicians all of a sudden but MY doctor and I communicate and my workouts are cleared and highly recommended. Thanks kiddos! Don’t make me stop sharing s**t.”

She ended the rant with “Lol,” which was accompanied by a laughing emoji. 

It’s not nice being put on the spot, and Khloe was likely furious at the notion she would willingly harm her unborn child. 

Khloe only confirmed she was pregnant last week after months of speculation. 

My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby!” said on Instagram.

“I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it’s the best bundle of feelings I’ve ever felt in my life!”

Khloe got together with Tristan Thompson in 2016, and their relationship has been moving along at a brisk pace ever since. 

They are very open about their love on social media, and that’s a good thing. It gives us pictures like the one below to share with you all. 

It’s incredible that just a few years ago Khloe was having what was probably the toughest time of her life with Lamar Odom. 

Now, she’s all grown up and is ready to bring her first child into the world. 

Khloe confirmed via Twitter just a week ago that her pregnancy will be featured on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. 

What do you think about all of this?
