A professor from Georgetown University is calling out Kim Kardashian for cultural appropriation, and the accusations come from the hairstylist who recently braided Kim’s hair for Kanye’s Paris fashion show.
Stephanie Kimou shared via Instagram a photo of Kim rocking her braids with the words “Credit Black Women” across it, and a caption that read:
“I need to discuss appropriation and theft of our culture, our vernacular, our vibes, our lips, our hair, our essence. My sister #ciaracoiffure is an AMAZING celebrity hair stylist in Paris who styled #janellemonae #therealmaryjblige #saintrecords #kelelam and other sisters.well Ciara was called in at the last minute to gift KKW with the style above for her husband’s fashion show last week,” Stephanie shared. “In a room full of white folks, she gave KKW this style, with her uninspiring hair stylist #chrisappleton1 looking on in awe I’m sure. And guess what your favorite white girl Kim does this week? Tags said uninspiring white stylist to give him credit for these black ass cornrows! I know every black woman reading this is #disappointedbutnotsurprised at this disgusting behavior. The issue with white women like the KKW is they do not respect black culture, they see it as a style which is taken off and put back on and that’s what makes them so damn dangerous,”
“Her call to action was to “dismantle” the erasure of black women’s work”.
Do you guys agree with Stephanie’s sentiments?
