Kylie Jenner Is Once Again Being Accused of Appropriating Black Culture

Do those camo swimsuits look familiar to you? Because they should.

Kylie Jenner isn't a stranger to being accused of cultural appropriation (please see: her use of dreads, cornrows, and that time she claimed to have "started wigs"), and to say she hasn't profited off black culture specifically would be vastly inaccurate.

The reality star recently released a new camo swimwear line, and is naturally being praised for "making camo swimsuits happen." But the thing is, she didn't. Destiny's Child did during the "Survivor" era.


And there's a reason the above tweet went so viral: because the theme of white people getting credited for trends and cultural traditions started by minority groups is tired AF.

Ahem, credit where credit is due.
