Victoria’s Secret Accused Of Cultural Appropriation AGAIN Following ‘Racist’ Fashion Show

Get the deets on VS' latest controversy!

It's not the first time Victoria's Secret has come under fire after one of their fashion shows.

You may or may not remember, but back in 2012, Karlie Kloss was sent down the runway in Native American-inspired lingerie and a headdress. The brand received a lot of backlash, eventually apologized, and cut the outfit from the CBS program when it aired.

Victoria's Secret also faced controversy after debuting their "Go East" collection modeled by Candice Swanepoel, which they eventually removed from their site.

This year though, VS is feeling the heat for their traditional Chinese-inspired and Mexican-inspired ensems.

In a since-deleted post published on Cosmo's site, one writer accused the label of sending models like Kendall Jenner and Taylor Hill (above) in "racist lingerie" and cultural appropriation.

Some Twitter users have echoed the sentiments, writing:

Khloé Kardashian Flaunts Friend's Offensive Halloween Costume… Ugh…

no title

Khloé, did you really learn nothing from pulling a similar stunt two years ago?!

On Sunday night, Khloé Kardashian attended a big Halloween blowout with a bunch of friends, but one pal's outfit was far from appropriate.

For the festivities, one of KoKo's buddies pulled a massive no-no and dressed as a Middle Eastern man, wearing a traditional keffiyeh, or head scarf.

Unfortunately, the reality star didn't see anything wrong with this controversial choice, because she posted this shoutout (above) to her foolish friend on Snapchat.

Oof.

We would have thought the blonde would be more sensitive to that kind of thing, especially since she came under fire for posing with Scott Disick — who was in the EXACT SAME COSTUME — back in 2014.

But the Snap shoutout wasn't the only appearance the upsetting pal made on the 32-year-old's social media.

She also shared a pic on Twitter with the man in the offensive outfit alongside herself, beau Tristan Thompson, and other friends.

Kylie Jenner can't be the only sister from this family to stir controversy with a hairstyle!

While the makeup maven debuted red cornrows for her 19th birthday on Tuesday, big sis Khloé Kardashian decided to quite possibly outdo her with new Bantu knots.

The 32-year-old posted a snap of the look to Instagram (above), originally captioning it "Bantu babe" before changing it to "I like this one better."

Of course that didn't keep commenters from calling out the beauty for even rocking the hairstyle, which is believed to have come from Zulu tribes in Southern Africa, in the first place.

Being slammed for cultural appropriation once again, here are some of the reactions from social media:
