Kim Kardashian West was given the slogan on Thursday by some social media users who said she appeared darker on a new magazine cover. Kardashian West shared photos on her social media accounts on individual covers of 7 Hollywood magazines, some of which include her wearing a strapless dress by designer Thierry Mugler, who also created her 2019 Met Gala dress.
"What a Dream"Kim Kardashian West captioned the social media post. While some celebrities, including her half-sister, Kendall Jenner, and Lala Anthony, praised Kardashian West's photos, many others on social media found the images less than dreamy.
Instagram user commented: "I’m confused as to how her black celebrity friends do not check her passive-aggressive, problematic and racially insensitive behavior. She constantly does BS like this and it’s just not okay!"
Jerome Trammel, an internet personality,wrote in response to Kim Kardashian West's tweet: "You helped get some Black people out of jail & you thought we were going to let this slide? Nah! They want our shade but not our struggle."
Kardashian West, who is studying to become a lawyer, has pleaded on behalf of former inmates Alice Marie Johnson and Matthew Charles, both of whom were released after serving lengthy prison sentences.
Some others accused the star of cultural appropriation "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and stated that in at least one image, she was "wearing blackface."
