Her critics didn't necessarily mind the traditionally African cornrows on Kim, but rather that she credited the look to a white woman.
"I'm so tired 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," one black woman tweeted . "If y'all don't know what's wrong with cultural appropriation at this point, it's not because you're uneducated, you're simply not listening when black women are telling you something."
Lindsay Lohan simply commented, "I am confused," to which the reality star clapped back: "You know what's confusing? Your sudden foreign accent."
This isn't the first time Kim has been dragged for racial insensitivity. It was just last summer that she was accused of wearing "blackface" in her KKW Beauty Line advertisement. The reality star later apologized and stated that she was just really tan at the time the photographs were taken so it could enhance the dramatic contour products that she was selling.

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. pic.twitter.com/l5cq4e7wg5
Kim Kardashian got on Fulani braids and called them “Bo Derek” braids. These why culture appropriation trash. Also, how many times is that family gonna get dragged for them to stop appropriating other people's culture. This why Beyonce don't like her stiff lips ass. pic.twitter.com/Nd2NHt7aOB

braids are very important part of black culture and black women are literally persecuted for it in the workplace every. fucking. day. don't tell us it's not that serious when it literally costs us our livelihood. pic.twitter.com/OAAvGaMIdN
first of all, fuck you @KimKardashian for wearing cornrows and calling them "Boderrick braids". second of call fuck you again for crediting the creation of "boderrick braids" to a white woman who was culturally appropriating cornrows to begin with.
