The queen of publicity stunts strikes again with pictures of her skin looking extra tawny and tanned from the new KKW Beauty contour highlight kit promo. Of course, Black Twitter roasted Kim Kardashian— no pun intended! Check it out:
And here are some of the tweets:
No lie, these tweets are funny. But at this point, we’re paying Kim waaaaay more attention than she deserves. It’s like rewarding a dog for fetching a bone; that’s what dogs do! So for Kim K, this type of beauty ad is right up her alley. She and her family prove time and time again that they are obsessed with trying to steal a piece of melanin magic by any means necessary.
On the flip-side, when I read headlines about her doing “black face”, I was low-key relieved to see that the pic wasn’t so “black face” as it was faking a tan. If anything, our cries of injustice just gave Kim and the Kardashian Klan more press. And that’s something they don’t need.
In short: let’s save out outrage for rightful injustices. This ain’t it.
