Is Khloe Kardashian The New ‘Bantu Babe’ ?
Khloe Kardashian is the latest in her famous family to take on a Black hairstyle. The reality television star tweeted and then deleted a photo of herself in Bantu knots with a caption calling herself “Bantu babe.” The 32-year-old posted a snap of the look to Instagram (above), originally captioning it “Bantu babe” before changing it to “I like this one better.”
Of course that didn’t keep commenters from calling out the beauty for even rocking the hairstyle, which is believed to have come from Zulu tribes in Southern Africa, in the first place. But Kardashian could not escape criticism, and Black Twitter let her have it.
