Kylie Jenner Dons 'Blackface' On Instagram; Gets Bashed

Kylie Jenner posted the above picture on her Instagram account and it apparently sent social media into a flutter. Some have referred to the picture as “blackface” while others are saying that it’s nowhere near that and that it’s for a photoshoot – and the world needs to calm down.

She captioned the picture: “What I wish I looked like all the time.”

After receiving a ton of backlash over the photo, she shared another shot from the photo shoot:

She captioned the picture: “This is a black light and neon lights people lets all calm down.”

We’re not sure why anyone would think she is trying to do “blackface” – the picture doesn’t show that her skin is a darker shade, just shiny and somewhat bronzed. We would never defend one of these Kardashian or Jenner trolls because her lips are fake and just about everything else is, too, but we just don’t see why there’s so much of a fuss. Besides that, she’s 17 and she’s going to make mistakes – it’s all part of growing up.
