Khloe Kardashian is being accused of cultural appropriation after sharing photos of her elaborate Cleopatra Halloween costume, that many are claiming is insensitive and wrong.
The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star posted a set of photos and videos of herself decked out in a stunning Cleopatra costume, along with baby daddy Tristan Thompson and daughter True who had matching outfits.
But, almost immediately many of her followers expressed their displeasure at Khloe’s dismissal of that culture and pointed out that she was a ‘black woman.’ Also, a few fans even accused Khloe of using a darker shade of foundation for her photoshoot, which is obviously a big no-no.

“Ｃｌｅｏｐａｔｒａ,” Khloe captioned the mind-blowing photos.
As you can imagine, Kardashian looks drop-dead gorgeous in the outfit and many of her famous friends and family jumped into the comments to point it out.
As we said, the mood swiftly turned on KK after many clicked through the set of photos and pointed out they didn’t approve of the look. “It’s just not that hard to not appropriate other people’s culture. Do better,” one person said.
“It’s the darkened foundation for me,” another said.
One person even went as far as to say, “FYI Cleopatra was brown so dressing up as her is racist!”

As you can see, Khloe shared several more posts of her whole family in the Egyptian outfits — including Thompson who was decked out in a gold-plated ‘Mark Antony’ which also matched their young daughter.
Interestingly, the family snapshot caused a massive debate on whether or not Khloe knew what she was doing because Cleopatra was actually white.
“Cleopatra was white. She was a Greek ruler of ancient Egypt. She wasn’t Egyptian. She was Greek. She ruled over Egypt as part of the Ptolemaic dynasty of Greek rulers that ruled Egypt,” a fan wrote.
“CLEOPATRA WAS BLACK,” another angrily shot back.

“You are a straight-up #CULTUREVULTURE,” one upset follow posted.
This is not the first time Khloe has been accused of something similar, back in 2016, Kardashian was blasted for sharing a photo of herself wearing Bantu knots with the caption, ‘Bantu babe.’
Similarly, fans were quick to call out the image as cultural appropriation, and she deleted it and posted another one saying, “I like this one better.’ At the time, a fan expressed how unhappy they were on Twitter, saying, “Khloe Kardashian can walk around with “Bantu knots” and its hip but if a black woman wore it to a job interview, its “unprofessional.”
