Kim Kardashian Defends Herself (& Blames North??) For Wearing Braids Again After Being Accused Of Cultural Appropriation!

no title

We guess cultural appropriation is OK if your kid tells you to do it! LOLz!

As you may have seen, Kim Kardashian West got a lot of heat (once again) for wearing Fulani braids to the MTV Movie & TV Awards over the weekend.

While speaking at her KKW Beauty and Fragrance pop-up launch, the KUWTK star told Bustle of the reason she continues to wear the look despite what people say:

"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. 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."

She's just twinning with North West!

You may have heard Bruno Mars was accused of cultural appropriation yesterday.

No, it wasn't for something he chose to wear or say this week; it was for, well, being Bruno Mars.

In a conversation on YouTube show The Grapevine, the 24K Magic singer was called a culture vulture who "plays up his racial ambiguity to be able to do cross-genre."

Zara Accused Of Cultural Appropriation With THIS 'Check Mini Skirt'!

no title

WTF Zara??

The Spanish fast-fashion retailer is currently selling a "check mini skirt" on its website that is simply described as a "flowing skirt with draped detail in the front" with a "front slit detail at the hem."

When customers saw the garment, many believed it resembled a lungi, a type of sarong typically worn in South and Southeast Asian countries to combat the area's intense heat and humidity.

After photos of the "mini skirt" went viral, people on Twitter accused the brand of cultural appropriation, and for failing to highlight the garment's inspiration. Oh, and the $90 price tag didn't help either.

Kim Kardashian Called Out For Cultural Appropriation On K. Michelle’s New Song Kim K — But Is It Totally Shady??

K. Michelle is spilling the tea!

Kim Kardashian West is being called out for cultural appropriation!

But this time by R&B artist and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star K. Michelle, who penned a new track Kim K about the momma of two and her sisters!

On it, she sings:

"Wish I could be a Kardashian so I could be black / Put my face over Pac, wear my braids to the back / Throw a filter on that, ’cause ain't shit real / And ain't shit funny, so fuck how you feel!"

The singer is clearly referencing Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner's lawsuit over putting their face over vintage pics of Tupac and more music icons, and then selling them on their site!

K. Michelle also shows love to Blac Chyna, who has her own lawsuit with the fam:

"I gotta fuck with Blac Chyna / She's such a lion, no Tyga / She's just a constant reminder / N*ggas will sponsor vagina"

Despite all that, the 33-year-old will have you know she means no shade to the Kardashian/Jenner clan, or even specifically Kim K. with her song:
