Bo Derek has attempted to give the MOST neutral response to Kim Kardashian West‘s braids controversy.

The key word there is “attempted.” As you surely know, Keeks was put on blast for crediting her recent braided hairstyle to the 61-year-old actress, as she famously donned the look in the 1979 film 10.

Of course, as the hairstyle is traditionally worn by black women and men, it didn’t take long for social media users to accuse Mrs. West of “cultural appropriation.” In an attempt to diffuse the situation, Miz Derek took to Twitter and wrote:

We’re cringing reading this. You can tell she’s trying so hard to be politically correct, while also justifying Kim’s snafu.

Not to mention, we doubt fans are thrilled with Bo dubbing the historically celebrated Fulani braids as “just a hairstyle.” Thus, it isn’t surprising that many have shut down Derek’s defense online:

We’re sure Kim appreciates Bo’s support, but we’re certain the industry vet is kicking herself for getting involved. Smh.
