KHLOE Kardashian got a backlash for modeling a traditional African American hairstyle in a resurfaced photo.
The controversial photo has resurfaced on social media where users have criticized the reality star’s choice of hairstyle.
In the 2016 shot, the 37-year-old wore a loose black tee with the Las Vegas Raiders logo and name branded on the front.
She wore the oversized shirt with no pants, pairing the look with black knee-high leather boots and glossy lime green nails.
Khloe also accessorized with a black crewneck sweatband around her neck with her nickname “Koko” embroidered on it.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum posed against a white wall with a face full of makeup.
He shared the shot on Instagram along with the caption: “I like this best”
However, it was the TV star’s hairstyle that reignited critical chatter as she sported her blonde hair in numerous tight buns.
One person lashed out at the star’s hairstyle calling her a “cultural appropriator”.
“These are bantu knots, which is a traditional African hairstyle. At the time it was very popular among AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN as a low maintenance style for natural hair.

“Obviously this culture appropriator thought it was okay to put her hair on. Ugh,” they wrote.
While another critic agreed with the comment, adding: “No, Forreal! Who thought it was okay? And also paired with the marauders’ shirt … mmm …”.
A third fan chimed in and wrote, “Yeah, it was weird. Just to imagine a hairdresser doing it for her.”
And a quarter compared the look to the Cynthia doll from the 1990s animated children’s series Rugrats.
