She’s blasted for black­ing up in ‘Jackie O’ photo shoot

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By COLIN HURST news@sun­daysport.co.uk

RE­AL­ITY star Kim Kar­dashian posed as Jackie Kennedy for a mag­a­zine shoot – and caused out­rage from fans of the late First Lady.

If chan­nel­ing the beloved icon wasn’t enough to spark a back­lash, Twit­ter users also wanted to know why Kim’s skin was dark­ened to match that of her daugh­ter North, whose dad is rap­per Kanye West.

One of those who replied to the 36-year-old babe’s orig­i­nal tweet, gush­ing about how spe­cial she thinks the pho­tos are, pulled no punches.

The an­gry fan posted: “This is the most ridicu­lous thing I have ever seen, while an­other wrote, “This is a dis­grace.

An­other out­raged fol­lower posted: “You are no Jackie O,” while an­other added, “Jackie O turn­ing over in her damn grave right now.”

Kim posed with her daugh­ter for the series of pic­tures that hark back to the Kennedy White House of the early 1960s.

But so­cial me­dia was quick to won­der why Kim, who is of Ar­me­nian and Bri­tish/Dutch de­scent, looked iden­ti­cal in skin colour to her child.

“Why did they darken her skin to try and make her look black?” one asked.

And oth­ers were up­set and in­sulted that the Keep­ing Up With The Kar­dashi­ans star – who found fame thanks to a sex tape – was dubbed ‘Amer­ica’s New First Lady’ by In­ter­view mag­a­zine who printed the photo shoot.
