Kim Kardashian Accused Of Being Unrecognizable, Wearing Blackface In New Photos For 7Hollywood Magazine
Kim Kardashian has uploaded new photos from her 7Hollywood magazine cover but she may not be getting the response she intended. While Kim has her share of celebrity fans who always praise her photos and videos, she also has many people in the public who choose not to hold back what they feel — even when it's negative criticism. Though Kim looks gorgeous in the photos, many people have accused her of looking unrecognizable, trying to be black, and darkening her skin so much it was akin to wearing blackface. Some compared the photos to African-American beauties like Diahann Carroll and Diana Ross. Needless to say, there was plenty of heated debate and discussion in the comment section under Kim's photo slideshow.
The Kardashians and Jenners are frequently accused of appropriating black culture and many people have publicly accused many of the siblings of trying to be black. When the Kardashians or Jenners cornrow or plait their hair, they are sure to ignite a firestorm of controversy.
The accusations of cultural appropriation or photoshopping photos until they look unrecognizable don't seem to disturb the sisters much. Khloe Kardashian was recently accused of photoshopping her own face to the point that she too, was also unrecognizable.
One person left the following comment.
"Ummmmmmmmm, this is pushing it! Diana Ross, much?!? Some things done in admiration actually come off as insulting and offensive. Feeling blackface’ish."

Kim Kardashian-West's makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic did Kim's face and also shared photos on his official Instagram account. He said that he only used the KKW x Mario The Artist and Muse collection on Kim but that hasn't quieted the voices of those who feel Kim is trying to be black.
Some have suggested that Kim couldn't have been happy with the way the photos were edited. What do you think about the new pictures of Kim Kardashian? Do you think she looks unrecognizable? Do you feel she looks like she's wearing blackface or trying to be black? What do you think?
