Khloé Kardashian of KUWTK Called out on Social Media for Cornrows and Pink Ponytail Hairstyle

“Keeping up with the Kardashians” reality star Khloé Kardashian recently unveiled her new hairstyle on social media. Despite a number of people praising her new hairdo, a few others have claimed that she’s “culturally appropriating” the hairstyle.

Kardashian, 35, took to social media to show off her new cornrow and pink ponytail hairdo. Cornrows are made by braiding and plaiting the hair into narrow strips to form geometric patterns on the scalp.

In the images she shared, the star wore a white bra and jeans as she took mirror selfies. Cornrows are controversial due to their roots in both Native American and Black culture.

Judging from how she didn’t bother reacting to her fan’s concerns last year and during this incident, it appears Kardashian has no intention of stopping to wear the hairdo.
