Here we go again…

Cultural appropriation accusations and the Kardashian-Jenners just appear to go hand-in-hand these days. If it's not Kim Kardashian being called out for her "Bo Derek" braids, it's Kylie Jenner being accused of darkening her skin. Well, it's Kendall Jenner in the firing line now and she is being dragged for wearing cornrows.

On 23 August, Kendall was pictured living it up in Los Angeles wearing an all-leather outfit with her hair braided. The Victoria's Secret model had the front of her hair in cornrows, while the back was left straight. Later, she shared more images of her hair on her Instagram Story.

Kendall was quickly called out for cultural appropriation for sporting the hairstyle, which has been popularised by black people yet they're often discriminated against and ridiculed because of it.

Needless to say, the internet was offended.

However, others defended Kendall's hairstyle.

Kendall has yet to respond to the braid backlash but with accusations of cultural appropriation always hitting this family, it's just another day at the office for Miss Jenner.
