It is common courtesy to always credit - or should we say appreciate - anyone who helps us in one way or another.

Briefly.co.za learnt that in the fashion business, most celebrities usually thank their designers and companies for products and services they buy from them by posting the same on their respective social media pages, whether they bought them or were given the items for free.

This way, the designer gets the chance to have their brands gain massive popularity through social media and possible clients who may be following the celebrities.

Well, US socialite Kylie Jenner recently attracted negative publicity after failing to credit the designer of a dress she wore and whose photo she shared online.

The whole melee started when the black designer, known as the force behind Loud Brand Studios, posted several photos of Kylie wearing their dress, dubbed the Limited Edition Raw Edge Vashtie Dress.

Kylie posted the same on her page but ''forgot'' to tag the designer on her post.

All hell broke in a matter of minutes as netizens pounced on Kylie and bashed her silly online, calling her racist.

Many felt she failed to tag the designer because he was black while others reminded the rest of the world that the lass does not usually tag anyone, including her stylists, hairdressers, et al.

The socialite was also accused by a cross-section of social media users of deleting the comments that were tagging the brand.

Kylie never rectified her error as she has not yet tagged the brand yet despite the criticism.

This comes just days after the socialite was mauled online for going on vacation during the pandemic after she was spotted vacationing in a luxury resort in the desert.
