Kim Kardashian posted a throwback Thursday photo on Instagram and immediately stirred up a little controversy.
The reality star, who married rapper Kanye West in May 2014, shared a snapshot on the social media website of Scott Disick and who appears to be Kanye standing side by side. In the image, Scott is his usual dapper self in a black coat, while Kanye can be seen wearing a black ski mask and black jacket.
“#ThrowbackThursday #LastYear #StyleIcons #LordDisick,” she captioned the image.
So why are people calling this settle shade? The mask worn over Kanye’s head is the same mask that Jay Z and Beyonce are wearing in the promo for their On The Run Tour. Fans immediately commented on the image and suggested that Kim is hinting that Kanye was the FIRST to sport the look, not Hov and Queen Bey.
“It’s the truth … Jay z steals a lot from Kanye West,” one comment read.
“I really hope that’s not shade thrown kim ! You might want to sit down you not THAT famous,” another comment read.
Some fans defended Beyonce and Jay Z, writing on Kim’s page:
“Guhl get yo life. Jay and Bey are on!”
“She betta stop tryna make that mask relevant. Besides people are so petty. The F’ing tour is ON THE RUN, wouldn’t they wear mask when robbing banks anyway. #tuhhh and yes I don’t have a problem with Kim but if she’s throwing shade, she betta stand back because the #beyhive is ready to sting lol.”
Sound off: Shade or no shade?
