Kim Kardashian claps back at Lindsay Lohan after comments on Instagram
Kim Kardashian is facing some backlash once again for cultural appropriation.
The wife of Kanye West posted a video on Snapchat that showed her hair in Fulani braids inspired by the Fulani women of East and West Africa. The Fulani braids consist of braids with beads. However, the 37-year-old reality star did not credit the Fulani women. Instead, she credited actress Bo Derek, who is white, for the traditional African hairstyle. People of color have worn braids long before Bo Derek in 1979.
After her comments, Lindsay Lohan commented on one of Perez Hilton’s posts on Instagram, calling Kardashian’s braids “confusing.”

Kardashian clapped back at the 31-year-old actress stating, “You know what’s confusing…your sudden foreign accent.”
Lohan showed off her new foreign accent in October 2016 during the grand opening of her Greek nightclub. A video began to float around on the internet, which left her fans confused. Lohan stated, “It’s a mixture of most of the languages I can understand or am trying to learn.”
People on Twitter were in a frenzy watching Lohan and Kardashian go at it:

Is @KimKardashian really that moronic? Anyone and everyone knows when you spend enough time in a country, you pick up the accent-whether it’s subtly or full on. I’m with @lindsaylohan 100%-I am confused with Kim K too. Cultural appropriation & so much thirst. Is she ok?

Looks like Yeezy has been training @KimKardashian on the art of the “clap back” and she put the new skills to work today against @lindsaylohan. Lindsay says she’s just confused with the new Kim K look & Kim’s confused about Lilo’s new accent. pic.twitter.com/vfPIysJ82j
