Good morning! Kim K is getting slammed for cultural appropriation . . . again
It’s so easy to just not
I feel like I've written this exact headline at least three times, and that's because I've written this exact headline three times. Kim is running me out of unique ideas, OK?
With three children of color, we thought maybe she'd chill with the braids and the blackface eventually, but uhm, here were are with her face plastered all over the pages and cover of Vogue India, and a bunch of people are, unsurprisingly, really fucked off about it.
Kim K in Vogue India. She looks buffer than me in a lengha ffs 😂😍 pic.twitter.com/n8OeaIx59z

Most people on Twitter are calling her out
'Uhm Kim K for Vogue India? Wearing a lehenga?'

'I can't believe Vogue India featured Kim Kardashian on their cover'
I can’t believe @VOGUEIndia featured Kim Kardashian on their cover as if we don’t see her featured on a different magazine every day. India’s vogue should embrace and feature their own south Asian women instead of choosing someone from pop culture

'We have so many GORGEOUS Indian women who could be on the cover'
We have so many GORGEOUS Indian women who could be on the cover of @VOGUEIndia but you put Kim Kardashian on there. In 2018. Newp

'The fashion industry loves to preach about the importance of diversity but then Vogue India will go put Kim K on its cover'
The fashion industry loves to preach about the importance of diversity & the efforts made towards it but then @VOGUEIndia will go & put Kim K on its cover 🤔

But a few are actually defending the magazine
people who are hating on @VOGUEIndia for their select international cover stars every once in a while really don’t understand how magazines work

They put brown women on the cover all the time………..they get an international star on the cover once in a blue moon

ppl are mad at vogue india for all the wrong reasons lool. kim k cover isnt deep. its an international cover. it happens once in a while. they consistently have brown people on the cover. why don’t you have this energy at the lack of dark skinned actors & actresses in bollywood ? pic.twitter.com/PFpTuhWX9S

It's nothing they haven't done before
In May of 2017, Kendall Jenner, Kim's sister, was featured on the cover of Vogue India as well, and in August of 2016, Kaia Gerber and Cindy Crawford were.
I have nothing against Kim Kardashian but @VOGUEIndia is really doing itself a disservice by continually neglecting to portrait brown women in their “magazine”— you’re perpetuating a detrimental cycle of underrepresentation. Stop white washing your own damn culture.

Oh, and Blake Lively in 2015 which really just speaks for itself, among other women, like Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Aniston.
