Amanda Seales is accusing Kim Kardashian of “black face” with a new photo shoot and calling out the reality star for her actions.
Kim Kardashian recently posed for a spread in 7Hollywood magazine, where her skin tone is much darker.
The inspiration behind the shoot was supposedly Elizabeth Taylor but many believe Kim was trying to emulate the late actress Diahann Carroll.
Amanda Seales posted a video ripping Kim for not only the magazine shoot but a pattern of behavior.
The actress/comedian started, “but what is there to say? What is there to say? WHAT IS THERE TO SAY?”
“Cause what folks will say is but she has black children. Stop it! But she’s middle eastern. Stop it. But she’s helping black people get out of jail. Stop it!”
She called out those who believed Kim was actually channeling Elizabeth Taylor saying she was clearly going for more Beyoncé, Diana Ross and Diahann Carroll.
Amanda added, “an entire team of people let it happen because they don’t care. She don’t care. She got a black daughter and she don’t care.”
“Y’all be praising this sh-t, that’s why she don’t care,” she continued. She said it’s, “Someone trying to take your rhythm but not know your blues.”
Amanda said this situation is basic and says the Kardashians are famous for taking from black culture. She says this is a constant thing the family does.
She continued, “They give nothing back. It’s all depletion with no replenishment. They can’t give nothing back, because we don’t want what they got.”
Amanda calls out Kim saying she knows better but chooses not to act. She explains Kim has a huge platform and people mimic her actions, which is why this is a problem.
The actress ended, “it’s a centuries old practice of entitlement and that sh-t is tired. I gotta take a nap.”
Twitter also dragged Kim for the photo shoot. One wrote, “The thing with Kim Kardashian and her family’s tireless history of cultural appropriation and Blackfishing is that she knows better. They know better. But they continue to do this because they know outrage sells. They’re able to keep their name relevant by doing things like THIS.”
Another commented, “This is modern black face! This is retro black face! This is black face black face! Kim Kardashian wants to be black so bad, and her coon ass husband Kanye West wants to be orange. What a time to be alive!”
“How come nobody is talking about @KimKardashian ’s black face ? being married to a black man and having mixed babies doesn’t make you a black woman. Putting yourself in the front line of prison reform doesn’t give you a pass either. Thanks for coming to my pep talk,” said another user.
