Kendall Jenner’s Cornrows Lead Today’s Star Sightings
All the cultural appropriation backlash Kylie Jenner has received clearly isn’t deterring her older sister from committing the same mistake.
Kendall Jenner was seen rocking her own set of cornrows while vacationing in St. Barts on Monday (Aug. 17, 2015). Joined by sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian and momager Kris Jenner, the 19-year-old was seen flaunting the same hairstyle that got her little sis in trouble with actress Amandla Stenberg, who called Kylie out for cultural appropriation on Instagram, as she filmed scenes for an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Stenberg, most famous for her role as Rue in The Hunger Games, argued that white women are often praised when they alter their bodies to have black features, but black women who inherit these same features are often shamed for having them naturally.
