Now, we all know the Kardashians love Black culture more than overpriced cosmetics and exaggerated plastic surgery (and that’s saying a lot), but Kim’s latest stunt has folks saying she’s gone way too far with her “appreciation”!
It’s one thing to perpetually appropriate our culture, but we draw a line in the sand at blackface … and that’s precisely what people are accusing Kimmie of doing. After releasing promo photos for her upcoming cosmetic line, KKW Beauty, Twitter noticed the hue of the reality star’s skin was bit darker than normal.
Mrs. West heard the accusations and tried to clear her name in an interview with The New York Times:
Speaking of image, tell me about your side to the blackface controversy.
“I would obviously never want to offend anyone. I used an amazing photographer and a team of people. I was really tan when we shot the images, and it might be that the contrast was off. But I showed the image to many people, to many in the business. No one brought that to our attention. No one mentioned it.
Of course, I have the utmost respect for why people might feel the way they did. But we made the necessary changes to that photo and the rest of the photos. We saw the problem, and we adapted and changed right away. Definitely I have learned from it.”
Apparently, this is the updated photo (below). Do you believe Kim’s excuse?
Colin Kaepernick, Steph Curry Want In On Carolina Panthers Ownership!
Colin Kaepernick might’ve just eluded to the desire to own an NFL team over playing for the league.
As Kaepernick’s journey remains unclear with the NFL, one thing is now known for sure, he wants to own a team. But get this, he’s not alone.
Following the announcement by Carolina Panthers owner, Jerry Richardson, that he is selling the team, Diddy immediately started to campaign. “I would like to buy @panthers. Spread the word,” he tweeted. “There are no majority African American NFL owners. Let’s make history.”
In response, not only did Kaepernick tweet that he wants to be part of “the ownership group,” but Golden State Warriors star, Steph Curry, also expressed he wants “in.”
Diddy followed up with,”Holla at me, let’s get it.”
To have a team owned by Diddy, Curry and Kaepernick would flip the league upside down and paint the picture for change. But what could they do for the league?
According to Diddy, if his dream came to fruition, the first thing he would do is address the Kaepernick “situation.” It was last season that the then 49ers quarterback kneeled in protest against racial inequality and police brutality.
The protest sparked national outrage, division across the NFL and even lead to Colin being blackballed — but could Diddy be the answer to the league’s controversial discussion?
The bigger question is; would Colin choose to take the corporate side over the field?
