Kylie Jenner’s latest photo shoot featuring ‘black lights’, ‘neon lights’ and inflated lips has sparked outrage online.
The teenager had on Saturday posted a series of photos on Instagram featuring her looking like a black woman, inflated lips and all. She captioned them, ‘What I wish I looked like all the time thank you.’
The photos were soon greeted with a lot of outrage, with many people believing that she was pulling a blackface, and her defenders simply saying she looked more metallic and wasn’t trying to be black.
The criticism that followed the photos forced Kylie to take down the photos, but minutes later she re-posted them with the caption, ‘This is a black light and neon lights people lets all calm down.’ This message failed to calm things down, forcing her to tweet on Sunday, ‘The photographer used a black light & neon lights for those photos. Yes, In another world I wish I could have pink hair & blue eyes & covered in sparkles. But in this world I’m happy w the way God created me. Happy Easter everybody.’
