Black Twitter Goes IN On 'Marie Claire' Magazine After Calling Kendall Jenner's Cornrows “Bold” & “Epic”


Black Twitter is back at it! Monthly women's magazine Marie Claire is being dragged on Twitter after they posted a twitpic of Kendall Jenner on her family vacay in Thailand...wearing her new “epic level” braids. As if plenty of us (like Jill Scott above) haven’t been wearing braids for years. Read the disgruntled tweets and apology when you go inside…

Fashion magazine Marie Claire (who prides themselves on delivering fresh information on fashion, style, hairstyles, and beauty) was ambushed this afternoon by Black Twitter and natural hair enthusiasts after the magazine labeled some ordinary braids “bold” and “epic.” They apparently didn’t receive the memo that black women have been rocking braids for years.  And this particular style on Kendall Jenner is the opposite of bold and epic....it's so 90's.

It's like the Miley-Invented-Twerking foolish misconception all over again, you know, when people only respect or take notice of a cultural trend when a non-person-of-color co-signs it.

The women’s magazine posted a picture of Kendall Jenner’s hairstyle (above), showcasing a set of cornrows on the side of her head, describing the style as “bold” and taking the hair game to a “new epic level.” Oh? Are they "bold" and "epic" because they're NOT on a woman or color?

Black Twitter instantly went IN on Marie Claire calling them out on their ignorance for using terms such as “new” and “epic” to describe a style black women (and men…i.e. Allen Iverson) have been wearing since…forever.

YBF chic Regan Gomez had PLENTY to say in response to Kendall’s “bold braids” tweeting:

Ha!

Black Twitter and beyond outraged by the magazine’s revelation tweeting:

 

After the magazine’s Twitter mentions erupted with backlash, they quickly tweeted an apology explaining they thought Kendall's hair looked great but didn’t mean to offend or imply that cornrows were new:

Thoughts?

White people are so slow and unoriginal.


If races were represented by a single person, white people would be represented by Katy Perry: a giant amalgamation of appropriation.

Bleh I hate hearing them when i'm out, "Omg i'm like sooo bad at braiding. I wanna learn so bad!" Stfu. And I used to cringe when the African shops would take their money and braid them up. They barely sat down in the damn chair...looking around and sh*t. And when they get braided up on vacation....Unhappy
