Kylie Jenner accused of 'blackfishing' as she looks unrecognizable with a darker skin tone in new selfies
KYLIE Jenner has been accused of “blackfishing” by fans who say she looks unrecognizable with a darker skin tone in new selfies.
The 23-year-old makeup mogul shared a short clip of her flawless face with her 213 million Instagram followers but some called her out saying she had “completely changed skin colour.”
Kylie posted the boomerang video to her social media account captioned simply with four black heart emojis.
While the majority focussed on the KUWTK star’s flawlessly applied makeup leaving positive comments, several accused her of changing her skin tone to make it darker.
One wrote: “CEO of changing her race”
“You completely changed skin color,” blasted another, before adding, “nah bruh delete this”.
A third joked: “i thought she got hacked lmao look like a whole different person”
Blackfishing is a term that has been used recently to define people who use self-tanner and makeup to manipulate their facial features in order to appear to have black ancestry.
Last month Amelia Hamblin, 19, who is dating Kylie's sister Kourtney's ex Scott Disick, 37, came under fire from fans who accused her of doing the same.
Amelia ended up taking to Instagram to address the comments, writing: "I'm reciving a lot of comments in regards to my latest photo.
"I am being told that I am 'black fishing' – thank you all for educating me on this topic. I recently went on vacation to the sun, and with my italian heritage, I tan very easily.
"There is no self-tanner involved or intention of looking darker than my own natural skin color. I had a lot of fun creating this look with no malice intention or offense."
The photo in question showed the wannabe model with a deep tan, slicked-back hair in a high braided pony, and a russet skin-tight crop top.
Following her uploading the picture, fans were not impressed with the new look.
"And…. Amelia is morphing into a Kardashian," commented one account, pairing the picture with a snap from her Banana Republic campain.
Another added a side by side with a red carpet snap, adding: "Does this happen when you change your hair?
"Or just when you date Scott Disick? And yes these are both the same person… Amelia, Rinna’s daughter."
"Good Lord, she now she looks just like Khloe K," commented another, as one joked: "Oh goshhhhh why."
