It's not uncommon for mainstream celebrities to take from Black creatives. However, Black twitter has had enough and is calling out Kylie Jenner for what appears to be a direct copy of Black fashion designer Travis Dimeer's entire promotional rollout. Last month, Dimeer went viral for his innovative marketing campaign that used his mother as the primary model for his designs.

Black twitter users came to Dimeer's defense and called our Jenner for plagiarism.
