Kim Kardashian seems to have hurt her fans' feelings after her last Instagram post. The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" stars made Instagram a picture wearing a white dress that combines with the traditional Indian headdress Maang Tika. Several people immediately struck the star for their cultural embezzlement, as they had probably forgotten in their attempt to maintain their reputation as a fashion icon to take into account the feelings of the culture in general.
The fans were completely disappointed by the post she wrote: "Sunday Service Vibe el @ elirusselllinnetz". Several fans commented on the posting as an indication of their disapproval of wearing the headpiece. One fan said, "So no one will call Kim Kardashian for appropriating Indian jewelry for cultural appropriation, but if it's a non-black wearing dreadlocks, the Internet will go up in flames." Another fan wrote: "You disregarded Indian food and culture on your show years ago, you do not like Indian food … call it disgusting … do not wear jewelry like an Indian."
Angry fans talked about an old episode of 'Keep Up Up With The Kardashians & # 39; in which Kim had said that she considers the Indian food to be "disgusting". The fans were furious and flooded their timeline with contributions that told them what they liked about their tastes and also accused them of cultural expropriation. A fan had written: "Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner called the Indian food" so disgusting. "Seriously? You do not have to like it, [but] do not be rude. "
However, Kim went to her blog (now deceased) to explain that it was just the food she was apparently outraged, not the people. She wrote in her defense: "In no way was." [my comment] intended as an insult to the Indian people or their culture. That's just my personal taste. "
This is certainly not the first time that a Kardashian has been charged with cultural embezzlement. Khloe Kardashian had her own share when she published a photo of her in a niqab during a visit to Dubai. The fans were angry when Khloe treated the garment as a costume.
A fan had said, "No, you do not have to carry it in the United Arab Emirates, the only country that has to wear Abbaya and headscarf is Saudi Arabia." She was also criticized for treating a traditional Indian headdress as a costume. One fan commented, "I bet Khloe has no idea what this headgear means."
