WHY THE WRONG FACE, KIM?
She’s blasted for blacking up in ‘Jackie O’ photo shoot
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.
