The Kardashian and Jenner clan have been accused of cultural appropriation. Whether it be Kim rocking cornrows, Kylie getting lip injections or Khloe getting butt implants, they have all been accused of stealing the features of black and Latino women.
Although, many have claimed that this was the furthest they have gone in terms of appropriating culture.
Within a few hours, the ad was removed from Twitter but still remains on Instagram.
Kim has yet to respond to all the drama, but she has made the controversial photo her icon on Twitter and Instagram.
