Kim Kardashian Slammed For Calling Her Cornrows 'Bo Derek Braids'

Lying on the sands in a skimpy white bikini, the mother-of-three had clearly taken inspiration from Bo's memorable look in the iconic 1979 comedy 10. The reality star has been branded a "culture vulture" after naming her new corn row hairstyle the "Bo Derek" braids.

"So guys I got Bo Derek braids, and I'm really into it".

I'll save you a trip to Google: in the 1970s movie 10, actress Bo Derek famously wore her blonde hair in beaded cornrows.

While Kim hasn't addressed the backlash, Bo Derick hasn't been shy in the past about speaking out against cultural appropriation claims.

Kardashian, who as of late confronted blackface allegations while advancing her new magnificence line, has already ascribed recognition for a job well done for her haircut.

Love added, "Cornrows on women date back to at least 3000 B.C. and as far back as the nineteenth century for men, particularly in Ethiopia".

That proposal immediately provoked the ire of Democrats, who have been battling Republicans and Trump for weeks over immigration. Republicans want vast curtailment of legal immigration, Democrats want to discuss a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million.

Kim Kardashian got on Fulani braids and called them "Bo Derek" braids. "Warriors and kings were identified by their braided hairstyles".

For what feels like the billionth time, Kim Kardashian has been accused of cultural appropriation after she referred to cornrows as "Bo Derek braids".

Another said, "First of all, f- you @KimKardashian for wearing cornrows and calling them "Boderrick braids". second of call f- you again for crediting the creation of "boderrick braids" to a white woman who was culturally appropriating cornrows to begin with".

"But I showed the image to many people, to many in the business". Last year, she was accused of "blacking up" to sell her products.

Nearly exactly five years ago, she posted a photo of herself with her hair braided and called the look "Bo Derek braids".
