Kim Kardashian’s new photoshoot has some people giving the reality star the side-eye. She is giving a new “look” for 7Hollywood magazine. It appears she is trying to channel Hollywood glamour, but more specifically Black Hollywood glamour. See the photos below:

Kardashian also posted the photo on her Instagram and she was slammed with comments like, “You will never be black. Accept this. To others, stop saying she looks like Beyoncé and other black queens. You’re feeding into her illness.”

Another comment read, “Black Face wtf is this, be yourself, stop this... Especially since black women are still demonized for our skin.”

There were similar sentiments from Twitter, see below:

  1. A “close source” to Kim Kardashian-West denies the blackface accusations via Page Six, “It’s the lighting that makes her look darker in this specific image. There are multiple covers and images from this shoot where the lighting looks more natural. People are so quick to find the negative in everything and also often forget that she is of Armenian descent.”

    Kardashian’s father was Armenian but by all accounts his racial identity was white (Armenian is not a race) and her mother is a white woman born in San Diego. Another example is pop star Cher, whose father was Armenian -- but Cher is clearly a white woman.
