 E! ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ spoilers: Fans Have Accused Khloé Kardashian of Blackfishing 

The Kardashian sisters have been accused of appropriating the black culture in the past years. In March, Good American founder, Khloe Kardashian face backlash on social media after sharing series of photos of herself spotting cornrows beautified with long, pink pastel ends.

Even though many fans stormed her comment section to gush over her look, other followers we’re so angry and water no time in throwing shades at her for “blackfishing.”  Black fishing is a term used to describe when someone intentionally portrays themselves as a race that is not their own.

Khloe was also blasted for trying to look like a black woman in May when she shared snapshots of herself wearing a dirty blonde mane color. She also looked notably darker on Instagram.

While some fans gushed over her unrecognizable appearance in one of the pictures, a lot of her followers we’re outraged and they slammed her, accusing her of fetishizing black skin and culture.

It seems the past issues with cultural appropriation haven’t taught Khloe to avoid changing her looks, or at least trying to look like blacks. On August 25, The Good American founder came under fire when she once again appropriated black culture. She posted pictures of herself rocking cornrows while she was vacationing in Turks and Caicos.

The snapshots show Khloe spotting a black, embellished sheer dress. Her hair was braided in cornrows. She looked pretty as she rode horseback with her daughter, True on the beach. Many of her fans and other celebrities quickly gushed over how good she looked in the picture, but others didn’t like the fact that she was wearing braids becse braids have been associated with the African culture for so many years.

“THE BRAIDS- PLS GIRL [YOU’RE] NOT BLACK IT’S NOT MEANT FOR YOUR HAIR,” another angry user said. “Girl you fierce but corn rows are culturally appropriating,” penned another displeased fan.

Despite the backlash on her page, other commenters defended the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, noting that spotting braids is to be expected when one goes on vacation.

One user, who saw nothing wrong with her hairdo said, “Every single resort offers braiding for patrons who VISIT the country. Why can’t she wear the braids? Why can’t anyone wear the braids?” Khloe is yet to say anything about her hairstyle.
