The outlet claimed Jenner got the backlash over the “twist braids,” a style commonly used by black women.
Despite deleting the snap, the outlet noted that the picture still exits on Jenner’s Instagram story as well as on the photographer’s, Luca and Alessandro Morelli, who she tagged in the shot.
“Happy New Year People! @kyliejenner by @morellibrothers #gwenstefani,” the Morelli Brothers captioned the picture of Jenner.
One person commented on the Morelli Brother’s page stating, “Kylie posting this and then deleting it immediately because of the hate is just sad.”
Another person claimed to have watched the hate comments come in and the reality star’s quick response, “I saw it myself. Had notifications on. Clicked on it and saw a few bad comments. Refreshed and it was gone. I ain’t blinddd.”
While another person noted that Kylie was getting negative comments from people stating that the braids didn’t “look cute” on her and to “stop trying.”
