We all know that Kim Kardashian sadly yet consistently missed the mark when she posted a photo to Instagram of her wearing cornrows, which, arguably, have been around since the beginning of time.
She referred to herself as “Bo West,” and many have interpreted the remark as her attributing the popular African (and African-American) style to the famous White actress Bo Derek.
Well, Derek has since taken to Twitter to respond:
Hey! It’s just a hairstyle that I wore in the movie “10” @KimKardashian calls it the Bo Derek because she copied my pattern of braids. I copied it from Ann-Margret’s backup singer from her Vegas Sho. And we all copied Queen Nofretari. I hope Her Royal Highness is flattered. pic.twitter.com/UuQkh8VKOi
