Apparently, MTV UK thinks that Kim Kardashin started a cornrows trend. Only they’re calling the hairstyle “boxer braids.”

The Twitter account for MTV UK posted an image of Kardashian sporting the look along with the caption: “The A-list are loving boxer braids right now, so here’s an easy way to do them yourself.”

The article linked in the tweet not only calls the cornrows “boxer braids” for no other reason than the fact that they apparently wanted to whitewash everything but also cites Kardashian as the founder of the trend, which has been worn by Hailey Baldwin and Kylie Jenner.

Because, you know, it’s not like black girls have been rocking this trend for centuries or anything.

MTV’s list of new slang for 2016 is mostly words black Americans have used for years
