Kim Kardashian is currently facing backlash online after she shared a photo of her hands on her Instagram account.
The beauty mogul and entrepreneur shared photos of her hand while adverting her KKW beauty body makeup products.
Kim on Instagram, posted a before and after photo of her body makeup products while using her hands as an example. According to her, her hands are always paled compared to other parts of her body which makes her use body makeup to even her skin tone.
However, many black Americans have called out the reality star on social media for using body makeup as they accuse her of trying to be a black person.
Check out some of the reactions below.
It must be so exhausting having to tint your skin darker every time you do a shoot or something 🥴 pic.twitter.com/i7x7oefHDH

Why do people forget she is Armenian, she’s been tanned before naturally and even when she was younger. If she wants to obtain an artificial tan when she is not tanned naturally just let it be. You’re only giving her free advertising I suppose lol

So creating “Body Makeup” for the sole purpose to be darker or “more tan” is unacceptable. Kim, in 2021 you know better and should do better but instead you just stand in the shit stock pile of items you have made to be a BLACK WOMAN AESTHETICALLY AND PHYSICALLY!

I completely agree that celebs trying to appear black & appropriating culture is wrong.
I don’t think tanning is the same, people feel better and look healthier after a bit of sun, it’s just putting a bit of makeup on your skin to replicate that & feel better about yourself.
