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.

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.
