鈥楾his emoji a lil too dark for you sis鈥: Khlo茅 Kardashian accused of blackfishing over emoji choice

鈥滒煠︷煆解嶁檧锔忦煠︷煆解嶁檧锔忦煠︷煆解嶁檧锔忦煠︷煆解嶁檧锔忦煠︷煆解嶁檧锔忦煠︷煆解嶁檧锔忦煠︷煆解嶁檧锔,鈥澛 is exactly how people are reacting to Khlo茅 Kardashian鈥檚 recent tweet using brown skin woman emoji.

The reality star tweeted the string of emoji on Monday, the first day of Black History Month, to the dismay of many who thought her chosen emoji skin tone was much too on the dark side.聽

Although the replies are mostly making fun of Khlo茅, there were those who called the reactions 鈥渦nnecessary.鈥

However, this isn鈥檛 Khlo茅 or her family鈥檚 first time being accused of 鈥渂lackfishing鈥 or cultural appropriation. The Kardashian-Jenner family has years鈥 worth of rocky history with Black fans and appropriating from Black culture.聽

Blackfishing鈥 is when someone uses makeup or photo filters to appear Black or mixed-race on social media. 聽

Just last May, Khlo茅 was accused of 鈥stealing鈥 her Black friend Malika Haqq鈥檚 face. Not too long before then, Khlo茅 faced backlash from Black women on Twitter for being a 鈥hypocrite鈥 over that Jordyn Woods drama.聽

One user even replied asking why she鈥檚 鈥渦sing Jordyn鈥檚 emojis.鈥澛

The Kardashians are really not that new to this. Their hairstyles and skin tone evolutions IRL have caused a lot of controversy over the years.聽

Twitter users seemed almost prepared with replies and memes this time around to confront Khlo茅鈥檚 choice of skin tone.

While some think Khlo茅 didn鈥檛 mean any harm, others believe her pattern of appropriation is purposeful and that she鈥檚 profiting off 鈥渂lack outrage.鈥

鈥淏ut on a deeper note, these women thrive off of black outrage,鈥 @_iwannaRAVE tweeted. 鈥淭hey know that that is the only way they will remain relevant and they do it every couple months smh.鈥
