Kim Kardashian found herself in hot water once again after wearing Fulani Braids to the MTV Awards this past weekend. Many called her out for cultural appropriation and now she’s speaking up about it.
At the launch of the KKW Beauty and Fragrance pop-up store, Kim spoke to Bustle about why she decided to wear the braids, saying QUOTE “I actually didn’t see backlash. I actually did that look because North said she wanted braids and asked if I would do them with her. So we braided her hair and then we braided my hair.”
Though she didn’t necessarily apologize, Kim did add QUOTE “In no way am I ever trying to disrespect someone’s culture by wearing braids. If anything, my daughter was so excited to see me get matching braids with her. When we did her hair in these braids, she was so excited.”
As you may know, this isn’t the first time Kim’s received criticism like this. During the same interview, she actually spoke of the last time this happened, saying QUOTE “I [do] remember the backlash when I had the blonde hair and that I called them ‘Bo Derek braids.’ But I obviously know they’re called fulani braids and I know the origin of where they came from and I’m totally respectful of that. I’m not tone deaf to where I don’t get it. I do get it,”
