We can always count on the Internet to take things over the top.
Kim Kardashian has been accused of using blackface in a new beauty ad for a line of makeup. While we aren’t eager to stand up for her and her predatory family, but we think this is pretty stupid. She looks like she just had a little bit too intense fake tan, and it certainly isn’t reflective of her natural color. However, this hardly rises to the level of blackface. This doesn’t at all appear as an intentional attempt to be “black.’ They just wanted her all bronzed and sexified given that it’s a summer campaign. People really need to get a dang life. Check out some of the mixed reactions below:
Kim K did blackface. Which is why she deleted her tweet. But I won't get into that bc I know how delusional her Black & non Black stans are.

“Black women get told to lighten. Meanwhile, Kim spends her entire career in perpetual blackface and is lauded for her beauty,”
