Kim Kardashian Slammed For Calling Her Cornrows 'Bo Derek Braids'

But Kardashian credited actress Bo Derek, who is white, for the traditionally black hairstyle. The 37-year-old mom of three posted a video to her Snapchat with her new "Bo Derek" braids before Twitter erupted in anger.

"I was really tan when we shot the images, and it might be that the contrast was off".

A third person chimed in, "I'm so exhausted with the whole Kim Kardashian does something ignorant, black women tell her, she feigns innocence and apologizes, and repeats the whole cycle 2 months later I M T I R E D".

Nearly immediately, several social media users accused the mother-of-three of "cultural appropriation" for wearing a traditionally black hairstyle, and for giving credit to a white woman.

"History lets us know cornrows began in Africa. The intricate braiding of the hair indicated the tribe you belonged to", Toni Love, a cosmetologist, barber, instructor and author, said in an interview with Ebony previous year. Cornrows on women date back to at least 3000 B.C. and as far back as the nineteenth century for men, particularly in Ethiopia.

Bo Derek previously called a similar incident involving Kylie Jenner "stupid", and stated that race never came up when she rocked her cornrows almost 40 years ago. "Warriors and kings were identified by their braided hairstyles".

"Kim Kardashian really said "Bo Derek braids" knowing damn well what she was doing", another person said. These why culture appropriation trash.

It might not have been a big deal, had she not credited them to a white woman. Last year, she was accused of "blacking up" to sell her products.

"But I showed the image to many people, to many in the business. Just because Bo Derek wore her hair like that in the movie 10 she did not create that hairstyle".
