Kylie Jenner‘s no stranger to accusations of cultural appropriation over the years, but even some of her staunchest defenders thought she took it too far after she reportedly took to Instagram recently to share a photo that was posted with the caption “brown skinned girl” (a reference to the popular Beyoncé song from her 2019 ‘Lion King: The Gift’ album).
As the criticism rolled in, the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star took to the outlet to clap back and confirm it was indeed fake.
See her statement inside:
After hoopla from the above photo reached her desk, Jenner took to Twitter to break her silence on the matter.
The 23-year-old not only denied ever uploading the photo and controversial caption (as seen above), but also provided screen shots to “confirm” the now viral photo was edited.
