Twitter rages against Kendall Jenner and VOGUE for her “afro” style in photo shoot
The model's latest look has drawn tons of backlash.
Kendall Jenner is back in social media’s crosshairs after photos of her donning what looks like an afro was posted by VOGUE.
The model who has been dragged in the past for culturally insensitive moves (like that tone-deaf Pepsi ad) is in good company when it comes to cultural appropriation her sister, Kim Kardashian West, has been rocking braids and cornrows unapologetically for while now.
The photos are from the November 2018 issue of the magazine and highlight VOGUE’s CFDA Fashion Fund, a 15-year-old competition for American designers. In one photo, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is next to Imaan Hammam.
The spread was photographed by Mikael Jansson, and is featured in the magazine and on VOGUE‘s website.

Twitter went in on the comments section of the photos with plenty of people wondering why the magazine didn’t feature a Black model if they wanted to showcase a Black hairstyle.
“Both her Afro and lip injections are distracting, but only the former is in truly poor taste,” posted one follower.
