Ever since the Kardashian sisters started making their fortune from their famous show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, they have not been spared from criticisim.
On many occasions, the famous squad was accused of trying to look, act, speak and be like black women.
Their haters resurfaced when Kim Kardashian posted a photo of her skin having not one but two distinct shades.
Her hands were pale and nearly pinkish while her face was as dark as that of a Latina lady or a fair skinned African-American.

What started off as an innocent makeup tutorial ended up as a lesson on cultural appropriation and unhealthy borrowing of other people’s features.
Kim was applying her lipstick on an Instagram video and wanted to detail the steps her fans should take whenever they do their makeup.
But her one comment made her angry followers blow up in fury.
“Do not judge my pale hands,” the mother of four captioned one of her videos.
The wealthy socialite acknowledged her unusual complexion by terming her hands as pale probably due to staying indoors for days on end.
This irked her fans and people on social media as they wondered why a white woman chose to use darker toned makeup and still claim her original colour was pale.
Many embittered social media users were thrown off by how different Kim looked and reminded her to always stick to makeup that matched her skin tone.
A lot of tweeps added that the famous business lady and her sisters probably underwent surgery to enhance their bodies so they could have more voluptuous features like those of black women.
Not too long ago, Kylie Jenner, Kim’s sister was accused of going under the knife to get a bum that resembled that of a black woman.
