Kim Kardashian gets into petty Instagram spat with Lindsay Lohan over new hairstyle
A few months ago, everyone was confused when Lindsay Lohan spoke at the opening of a new Greek nightclub and sounded half-British and half-American. Now Kim K is asking the same question, but why?
Kim Kardashian just debuted her new look: platinum cornrows inspired by Bo Derek. You will remember that the caucasian American actress had silver cornrows in her 1979 film, Comedy 10 and looked sexy while posing on the beach. Kim, as always, nailed the look and dripped with sultriness as she showed off her curves on the beach just like Bo did more than three decades ago.
As is usual with everything that Kim does, the world of social media had a strong reaction to her cornrows. People on Twitter attacked her for cultural appropriation and for not respecting African-American culture. This was quite strange because Kim has always been respectful. She apologized to fans who thought she did a "black face" while promoting KKW Beauty.
And really, @KimKardashian could have said, "I'm wearing my Carefree-White-Girl-On-Spring-Break-In-Jamaica braids." Because that's what they are. Authentic Black Experience souvenirs she got on her trip to No-Consequences Negronia.— Fiqah (@sassycrass) January 30, 2018
Since you’re clearly so obsessed with African culture, why don’t you give us credit for your new do boo? And btw your daughters are black, so you really should find a f*ck to give https://t.co/nKx2onyrn4— Nicole Utah (@NotoriousNIC__) January 30, 2018
It’s not cultural appreciation when Kim Kardashian fights tooth & nail to avoid crediting the Black women who inspire her looks/aesthetic/hairstyles. It’s a form of erasure & it is racist as hell. She doesn’t want to credit Black women because she envies us. & I am over it.— Bella Goth (@HoodSocialist) January 30, 2018
Kim Kardashian has every right to appropriate African Fulani braids just as African-American women have culturally appropriated the chemical relaxer or perm from American white women. Cultures appropriate. Period.— Djehuty Ma'at-Ra (@DMRHerbs) January 30, 2018
This time around though, Kim's not entertaining negativity and just wants to enjoy everything that's sexy about the cornrows and her sexy swimsuit. So that's why she tweeted to all her fans on Twitter, "Hi, can I get zero fucks please, thanks."

To the world, that tweet captured Kim's frustration but it looked like one person didn't quite get it. Just when Perez Hilton posted a picture of Kim with cornrows and asked fans for their opinion, Lindsay Lohan commented, "I'm confused." And Kim came for her. Kanye West's wife said, "@linsdaylohan you know what’s confusing…..your sudden foreign accent."
To be fair, Lindsay has been living in London for the past four years and in her own words, she's been learning so many different languages. The Parent Trap star told Daily Mail that she herself is quite confused by her accent because its infused with English, French, Russian, Turkish, Italian and Arabic.
This rather strange and bizarre accent was first unveiled to the world when the former child star spoke at the opening of a Greek nighclub in London in October 2017. Unsurprisingly, it drove several discussions on how Lindsay spoke earlier and how her accent has changed after her move to London.

I miss Lindsay Lohan’s fake accent— rihanna’s big toe (@buffcoyote) January 16, 2018
Kim, the queen of social media, hasn't forgotten this discussion so she added to it as well. If Kim's going down for her cornrows then suffice it to say that she'll take some people along with her.
