Kim Kardashian is being accused of cultural appropriation for posting a photo of herself with corn rows and captioned it “Bo Derek braids”–a nod to the actress’ look in the movie 10.
Critics called her a culture vulture. “They are called Fulani braids or some may even say corn rows. You could of called them either one, but you called them ‘Bo derek,’ giving credit to a white woman for a black style,” one critic wrote. Another commented, “Kim Kardashian should have learned by now how to properly deal with black culture and considering she has three black kids, this behavior is disturbing.” Interestingly, the only criticism that seemed to upset Kim was from Lindsay Lohan, who commented on the photo, “I’m confused.” The reality star snapped back, “You know what’s confusing… your sudden foreign accent.”
Meghan Markle wants to deliver a speech at her and Prince Harry’s wedding this spring. She’s planning an “affectionate” tribute to her new husband and will offer thanks to the Queen, her family and friends for their support. She also wants to include some jokes. Apparently, this is not something that is typical at a Royal wedding, should be good! Harry and Markle will marry in front of about 800 guests at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
