Kendall Jenner is being dragged for wearing cornrows in one of her Instagram Stories. Fans are furious with Jenner and just might not forgive her “ignorance” the way they did with the disastrous Pepsi ad.
It seems like every day there is a report of one of the Kardashian or Jenner ladies coming under fire on social media. They tend to land in hot water frequently, especially when it comes to being out of touch with reality and cultural appropriation. Today is no exception.
Kenny, as her family loves to call the model, is not as prone to the family scrutiny as Kylie, Khloe, and Kim even Kourtney. She is the one fans are taking aim at today. It all began when the model used Instagram to share some stories from her vacation with gal pals, Hailey Baldwin, and Justine Skye in Jamaica.

Twitter was quick to call out the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star for borrowing a hairstyle from black people who are often shamed for weeing such a hairstyle. It was once again, cultural appropriation.
“How come no ones talking about how kendall jenner’s hair was literally in cornrows the other night,” wrote @bucciarati.
“i hope her hair f*&King falls out,” shared @tinaallamm
“kendall jenner don’t be problematic challenge: failed,” said @pxlpfxction
“Kendall Jenner is sporting cornrows reminiscent of Bo Derek in the movie 10. 10 is also the highest number Kendall can count to,” Tweeted @AlexKaseberg
Twitter was not happy with Jenner having her hair in cornrow. However, several users questioned why there was such outrage over the model’s hairstyle.

“Why are people making such a big deal that Kendall Jenner wore cornrows? Who is she offending?? Y’all are so f*&King SOFT. It’s just HAIR,” wrote @dayrapachecoxo
“For people dragging Kendall Jenner for her cornrows. YOU are the clowns. It’s a hairstyle. Anyone can wear any hairstyle. It’s not designated to one race. It’s hair. You can do what you want to YOUR hair,” said @paulhanz101
Kendall Jenner is under fire for her hairstyle choice while on a Jamaican vacation. There is a divide on Twitter as to whether or not Jenner should be dragged or wearing cornrows. Is the outrage honestly because of her hair choice or because she is a Jenner?
The famous Kardashian and Jenner family are continually being scrutineered on social media. What are your thoughts?
