Kim Kardashian responds to accusations of cultural appropriation

Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian spawned controversy on social networks after appearing at the MTV Movie and TV Awards wearing afro braids. In addition to being accused by some Internet users of cultural appropriation, there have also been posts with reflections on double standards, since in many cases black women are considered "sloppy" or "unprofessional" if they use ancestral hairstyles while white women are free of it kind of criticism.

In an interview with Bustle, the influencer explained that some of her looks are just to celebrate the beauty of curly hair of her daughter, North West, who is biracial. "I do not see any affront to it. I actually did this hairstyle because North said she wanted to wear braids that day, and asked me to stay the same. Then we braid her hair and then we braid mine, "he said. "No way would I try to disrespect anyone's culture by wearing braids. My daughter is so excited when we combine our hair. "
