However, fans were quick to accuse the 39-year-old of ‘blackface.’ One person wrote, “Kim Kardashian don’t care about black women. You can be as loud and upset as you want. KARDASHIANS DON’T CARE ABOUT BLACK WOMEN. Their brand is able to exist by gettin access into black culture through black men who will defend them till the end cause they too hate black women.”

Another stated, “The thing with Kim Kardashian and her family’s tireless history of cultural appropriation and Blackfishing is that she knows better. They know better. But they continue to do this because they know outrage sells. They’re able to keep their name relevant by doing things like THIS.”

Another declared, “Elizabeth Taylor?! Try again. More like Diahann Carroll or Beyonce! The Kar-trashians blackface/blackbody shenanigans continue…”

One person commented, “Kim Kardashian often appropriates Black female culture to get attention. It says a lot that she continuously pulls these antics to get attention, knowing she’ll upset Black women–the same Black women that have supported her businesses. She’s a culture vulture in blackface.”

However, a source close to Kim recently told Page Six, It’s the lighting that makes her look darker in this specific image. There are multiple covers and images from this shoot where the lighting looks more natural.”
