Kendall and Kylie Jenner called out for cultural appropriation again. Yes, again…
This is at least the third time in the past few months that the Kardashian-Jenner sisters are being dragged online with accusations of being culture vultures.
The two reported released a new, limited edition collection this week, via their Kendall & Kyle label, which is being exclusively through Saks Fifth Avenue.
The piece in question is a handbag modeled after a Chinese takeout box. Priced at $150 USD, the handbag looks almost identical to typical Chinese takeout boxes, complete with a tiger graphic on the front with “KK Express – Los Angeles, CA” written in bold, red lettering.
Reports said the line also includes a $45 USD fortune cookie coin purse. DAMN! Seriously?
The internet went off, of course, and the bag was quickly pulled Saks’s website.
This controversial design follows a promotional image last month, where they showcased a flannel worn on a model, rocking it with just two buttons together at the top, sparking accusations of the Jenner sisters jacking Mexican Cholo/Chola culture.
Before that, Kylie and Kendall came under fire for superimposing images of themselves across iconic musicians including Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. on a line of “vintage T-shirts”. People were outraged, including the photographers that took the photos and Biggie’s mother Voletta Wallace.
When will these two learn?
