People also accused Kim of yet another case of cultural appropriation — made even more egregious by the fact that she attributed the braids to a white woman.
“Oh no these are boxer braids”
“Oh these are Bo Derek braids”
Anything to avoid dealing with admitting she’s inspired by Black women.
Erasure is real.

They are called Fulani braids or some may even say corn rows. You could of called them either one but you called them "Bo derek" giving credit to a white woman for a black style knowing you already catch heat for culture vulturing. #KimKardashian #culturalvul pic.twitter.com/aIF4NzJ9rw

Kim ….these braids did not start and end with Bo Derek ….they originated from African culture pic.twitter.com/RQY8RTH6fX

Kim K calling her cornrows "Bo Derek" braids is just as, if not more infuriating as when I wore my name plate necklace to work and someone called it a "Carrie Bradshaw" necklace.
