Kim Kardashian is rocking a new look with her hair, and people are not happy.
The reality television mogul and sex tape star posted several photos recently of her new hair, and it’s apparently very offensive to some.
Her hair got so much attention that Twitter made it a trending moment. Here are a few of the reactions.

Kim Kardashian said she got “Bo Derek braids.” She is 100% out here trolling Black women. You can’t convince me otherwise. pic.twitter.com/LZeh4f8BqH

They are called Fulani braids or some may even say corn rows. You could of called them either one but you called them “Bo derek” giving credit to a white woman for a black style knowing you already catch heat for culture vulturing. #KimKardashian #culturalvul pic.twitter.com/aIF4NzJ9rw

Kim K calling her cornrows “Bo Derek” braids is just as, if not more infuriating as when I wore my name plate necklace to work and someone called it a “Carrie Bradshaw” necklace.

Struggle braids in 2018?! Wowu.
She has been with Kanye long enough to not be forcing that “I fuck Black guys braids”

First, let me say that I’m not a fan of Kardashian at all. I find her to be a complete waste of space, and I think she’s got next to no talent. Getting famous because your dad was a famous lawyer and making a sex tape doesn’t mean you have talent.
However, I can’t let this garbage go unanswered. So, today I am picking up a sword on the internet and defending Kim Kardashian. That’s how you know I’m always honest with you guys. I’m defending a person I can’t stand because the truth is important to me.
People – it is just hair. Are we really getting upset about hair? Who cares where it originates from, who started it, who wears it and anything else. There are kids starving all around the world and people are arguing on Twitter about hair. Are you kidding me? I have the haircut of a 70 year old dude who thinks he’s still capable of coaching football in the 1960s. Nobody is accusing me of cultural appropriation. Maybe it’s because I’m not famous – or maybe it’s because it’s such a dumb topic.
Kim Kardashian could be bald for all I care. Who would she be appropriating then? Men in their 40s who started losing hair in high school? Oh, the horror is almost too much to handle.
I’ll tell you what. I’ll make a compromise. We can start arguing about hair when poverty is ended, war is over, nobody is going hungry and the world is perfect. When all the real problems are solved then we can start arguing about hair.
