Kylie Jenner sent Twitter into a tizzy over the weekend after the youngest Kardashian sister shared photos on her Instagram where some thought she was posing in blackface.
In the now deleted photo, Jenner wears metallic-like makeup that makes her skin look darker along with dyed purple hair and a hint of glitter.
She captioned it with, “What I wish I looked like all the time.”
The 17-year-old — who has nearly 20 million followers — deleted the photo, but then after receiving a lot of criticism, posted two more from the same photo shoot, telling people to calm down because it wasn’t blackface. (RELATED: You Have GOT To See What The Kardashians Wore To Church For Easter)
“This is a black light and neon lights people lets all calm down,” Jenner captioned the second photo.
But that didn’t stop people from criticizing her. A lot.
Ppl who don't see a problem with Kylie's photo need to educate themselves. Cultural appropriation is not "art".

Yikes Kylie… yeah that kind of really looks like blackface to me… not a good choice of editing imo.
