Yaki Drama: Twitter Slams Kylie Jenner for Trying to 'Look' Like a Black Woman

Published February 18, 2016

Kylie Jenner is under fire for her latest hair style. Once again, folks are accusing the 18-year-old of trying to "look Black," and this time a textured ponytail is the indicator.

According to Teen Vogue, it all started when she was spotted at Alexander Wang's show during New York Fashion Week rocking a Yaki ponytail, which is typically used as a hair extension piece for Black women.

Check out the photo, below:

People are accusing her of appropriating Black culture, and social media is up in arms. Check out some of the tweets:

This isn't the first time the TV personality has been accused of trying to be "down." In the past, she was accused of rocking Black face and even attempted to emulate the effect of "baby hair" on a red carpet.

With all that said, what do you think? Does Kylie have some obsession with "looking Black" or are people blowing this all out of proportion?

Also, catch up on Kylie's relationship drama with her boyfriend Tyga in the BET Breaks video, below:
