The KUWK celeb took to social media to share what could have been a super cute pic of her with baby True if not for the fact that the fans could not look past both of them wearing bamboo hats! That being said, Khloe Kardashian received a lot of hate online for cultural appropriation!
Under the photo that showed the mother and daughter relaxing during their Bali vacation, one fan left a simple comment: ‘Cultural Appropriation!’
Of course, most of the reality TV star’s followers could not resist mentioning True’s super cute smile, but there were plenty of outraged people that still slammed Khloe for wearing the hats.

‘White girl with a black baby in a Chinese get up,’ one person commented.
‘Could have done without the hats but okay,’ another said.
Someone had some advice for Khloe, saying: ‘Please do not teach your child that cultural appropriation is acceptable DO BETTER.’
The headwear is known as an Asian conical hat, and it’s traditional, so a lot of people were uncomfortable and bothered by Khloe and True wearing them.
‘Cultural Appropriation??? Lol don’t come at me, but…,’ another fan wrote.
As you probably know, this is not even the first time Khloe and her reality TV family have been accused of cultural appropriation.
Back in 2015, Khloe wore a niqab during a Dubai trip and social media was outraged, especially because she was not required to wear it, accusing her of culturally appropriating Muslim culture.
She also put on a Native American headdress once! – Pretty upsetting.
Khloe, Kim, and Kylie have also been in hot water for choosing to wear cornrows and even Bantu knots!
The star is yet to address the backlash over the hats!
