Kim Kardashian-West Accused of Cultural Appropriation for Rocking Cornrows

GETTY

After wearing cornrows to the MTV Movie & TV Awards this past weekend, Kim Kardashian-West is being accused of cultural appropriation.

Kardashian-West hit the MTV red carpet wearing a white crop top, embellished maxi skirt and black plaits that reached down to her waist.

She was soon called out by both fans and detractors for cultural appropriation, defined as the adoption of elements of a minority culture by members of the dominant culture. In this case, a White woman is wearing a traditionally African hairstyle that many Black women are criticized for wearing in certain environments.

There were some fans, however, who saw no problem with her style of choice.
