Pregnant Kylie Jenner shows off visibly darker skin and long braid in new video despite blackfishing accusations
KYLIE Jenner showed off visibly darker skin and a long braid in a new video after being accused of "blackfishing".
The pregnant KUWTK star, 24, and her sister Kendall, 25, have faced controversy in recent weeks after appearing to have darker skin in several videos.
Kylie paid no attention to the backlash on Tuesday, as she filmed herself looking significantly more tanned while posing in her car.
The E! star showed off her olive complexion and wore her hair in a tight braid over her shoulder.
She wore a printed green dress and accessorized with chunky gold earrings and layered gold necklaces.
Unlike her older siblings, Kylie does not have Armenian heritage. She is Caitlyn and Kris Jenner's second daughter.
Kris has English, Irish, Dutch, German, and Scottish roots, according to Showbiz CheatSheet.
Caitlyn, a former Olympian, has Canadian and Welsh roots and like Kris, also traces her heritage back to England, Ireland, Scotland and Holland.
The beauty mogul came under fire late last month while filming herself and Kendall in the car on the way to their sister Kourtney's engagement party with Travis Barker.
Critics pointed out the siblings' noticeably darker skin in the short video.
One wrote on Reddit: "Filter or blackfishing?" as another responded, "I think blackfishing?!"
Another chimed in: "Ok if THIS is not blackfishing what is?? This is literal blackface."
Blackfishing refers to someone pretending to be Black or mixed-race using things like hairstyling and make-up.
This is not the first time that Kylie has been accused of the act, which is seen as a type of cultural appropriation.
Back in March she was called out after sharing a short clip of her face, in which critics claimed she had “completely changed skin color”.
Meanwhile, last month the young mom revealed that she's pregnant with her second child with her boyfriend Travis Scott, 30.
As part of the pregnancy announcement, Kylie shared a video that included footage from a visit to the doctor for an ultrasound with Travis and their daughter.
Later in the clip, the couple surprised momager and family matriarch Kris Jenner with the exciting news by handing over a photo of the ultrasound.
BABY NUMBER TWO
"Are you pregnant?" Kris asked, before squealing: "Stormi, we're gonna have a baby! This is one of the happiest days of my life."
The Kylie Cosmetics founder has kept her baby's gender a secret, but KUWTK fans are convinced she has been dropping clues that she's having a boy.
She sparked speculation when she shared sweet photos of Stormi wrapped in a blue towel in the bath.
She also recently shared a photo of a light blue car seat and wrote, "Baby blues".
Kylie has been sharing regular videos of her baby bump and recently said she has "popped" in the last few weeks.
The TV personality has been candid about her pregnancy cravings, tucking into mac and cheese and cupcakes with Stormi.
