Prior to this hairstyle backlash, the younger sister of Kim Kardashian was heavily criticized in 2018 for sporting an Afro hairstyle in a photoshoot for Vogue magazine.

AceShowbiz - Kendall Jenner has been slammed by fans online for wearing her hair in cornrows.

The supermodel shared a number snaps on her Instagram Stories showing off her while on vacation with Hailey Baldwin and singer Justine Skye in Jamaica - including one featuring the 23-year-old reality star getting her hair braided.

Cornrows is a traditional African hairstyle, in which the hair is braided very close to the scalp, and furious followers took to social media to accuse the star of cultural appropriation.

"That entire (Kardashian/Jenner) family literally thrives off black people and their culture. I'm tired of it," wrote one user, while another fired, "The gag is that she doesn't even look good in the first place."

Others labelled Kendall's hairstyle as "problematic" while another fan accused the star of "exploiting and stealing from black culture."

Kendall's sister Kim Kardashian previously came under fire for wearing her hair in cornrows, which she said were inspired by Bo Derek's iconic look in the 1979 romantic comedy "10", while the model herself was criticised for sporting an Afro hairstyle in a photoshoot for U.S. Vogue magazine last year (18).
