Vogue Photographs Kendall Jenner With an Afro Hairstyle, Immediately Issue Apology

More political correctness from the social justice crowd.

Published

on

Kendall Jenner, who’s true and only real claims to fame are modeling and being a member of the wacky Kardashian clan, continually seems to find herself under fire from social justice warriors for just about anything and everything she does, a phenomenon which is strange given the fact that she’s a pretty liberal individual.

The latest wave of outrage to be brought to her front door involves some photographs taken by Vogue magazine that feature the reality star rocking an afro-style, which, as you can probably imagine, had social justice warriors in an uproar, because, well, cultural appropriation and things like that.

The Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund shared several photos on Instagram showing Kendall Jenner in a hairstyle that ruffled the feathers of one too many commenters, who accused the fashion magazine of cultural appropriation, The Hollywood Reporter reports. Behold the monstrosity:

Fifteen years and 150 finalists later, the @CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund prize has created global stars, local heroes, a must-watch New York Fashion Week, and, most important, a true sense of community among designers of all ages and backgrounds—all with differing aesthetic and commercial aspirations—who communicate, collaborate, and essentially care for one another through the fun and not-so-fun times. Laura Vassar Brock—one of the founders of 2016 #CVFF winner Brock Collection—says, “We spoke to a few friends who had gone through it, and they all said the same thing: that the Fashion Fund is a life-changing experience. And indeed it was!” Tap the link in our bio to learn more. Photographed by @mikaeljansson, styled by @tonnegood, Vogue, November 2018

Here’s how the perpetually outraged on social media reacted to the photographs.

“FOR YEARS WE have been penalized about our looks and especially our hair, It is a slap in the face when non-Blacks try to imitate our look,” one Instagram user wrote.

“I like Kendall but why didn’t they use an ethnic model who has hair like that,” another wrote.

Other Instagram users were confounded about all the fuss over the photo.

One user emphatically protested: “Backlash for this photo?? Seriously?? That is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard!! So now someone has decided who can have a full curly look/ afro?? That is just BS!! Pick your battles people and get over it…seriously!!”

“I’m so sick and tired of people criticizing Kendall Jenner,” another said. “She could wear her hair straight and have a green bow and it would be offensive. I’m honestly ashamed to say this, but y’all need to step back and look in the mirror, who are you to come at her when your just a HUMAN LIKE HER. Y’all should be ashamed, LEAVE HER BE. (Also that’s not an Afro).”

As we’ve all come to expect, when these folks put just a tiny bit of pressure on Vogue, they caved and immediately issued an apology.

“The image is meant to be an update of the romantic Edwardian/Gibson Girl hair which suits the period feel of the Brock Collection, and also the big hair of the ’60s and the early ’70s, that puffed-out, teased-out look of those eras,” the Conde Nast publication said in a statement to E! News. “We apologize if it came across differently than intended, and we certainly did not mean to offend anyone by it.”

As was stated earlier, Kendall Jenner is absolutely no stranger to controversy, especially when it comes to being politically correct. Remember that huge fail she had with the “woke” Pepsi commercial?

No?

Here’s a reminder. Enjoy.

Beto’s Bizarre and “Witchy” Rituals are Dumbfounding Democrats

Let’s not overlook the fact that O’Rourke also subjected his family to his esoteric gibberish as well.

Published

Beto O'Rourke

The behavior of Beto O’Rourke would the prime fodder for the writers over at Saturday Night Live, if they were ever inclined to take a shot at a liberal politician. No, the folks over at NBC likely won’t be talking about Beto O’Rourke’s whimsical mysticism, or the fact that he believed that eating magical dirt would give him superpowers. That second bit, while certainly a striking and piercing accusation, is absolutely true. O’Rourke, who came up short in his bid to unseat Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, despite raising $80 million for the Senate push, told the story of his earthy snack in a sprawling 3,000-word profile published by The Washington Post. “In January, Beto hit the road, much as his father had done before him, and drew energy from the people he met, and — on one stop in New Mexico he didn’t write about in his blog — by eating New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers,” the profile reads. “He brought some home for the family to eat, too.” This shamanic nonsense comes to us just days after O’Rourke’s sprawling interview in Vanity Fair had the 2020 democratic candidate discussing how politics are his “destiny”, and how he was “born to” run for President. Beto’s latest tirade came at the expense of the electoral college – a system of voting that the democrats are increasingly looking to alter. “I think there’s a lot to that. Because you had an election in 2016 where the loser got 3 million more votes than the victor,” O’Rourke said in a video posted online on Tuesday. “It puts some states out of play altogether, they don’t feel like their votes really count. “If we really want everyone to vote, to give them every reason to vote, we have to make sure their…

Ditching the Electoral College is Popular Among Dems…Here’s Why

If you think this is a good idea, you should speak with folks in Northern California and Upstate New York…

electoral college

Of all of the issues that we expected to see arise during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, one may easily carry with it the most weight. That idea is the abolishment of the electoral college; the system of voting that our nation has utilized since 1804.  Sure, the process can be a bit tedious and tumultuous at times, but, as the President himself explained, there is a very real purpose for this convolution. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108187855954870272 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108190837257764864 The Commander in Chief makes a great point here, and it’s one that the people of Northern California and Upstate New York can attest to well. You see, in those states, the popular vote is used for a number of ballot initiatives and general public decision making.  In both of those states, the liberal population hubs of The Big Apple and the beaches of Southern California completely overwhelms the rest of the state’s far more rural and conservative population.  This means that, proportionally, a tiny fraction of the state is lording over the greater mass of the state on all matters. To some, it sounds a bit like a King in his castle, looking out amongst the vast expanses of farmland in serfdom. For others, the issue is not just the idea of taking away a well-established, tuned, and tested system for voting, but rather the appearance that this move, combined with other liberal pipe dreams, is all due to their poor sportsmanship at the end of the 2016 contest. President Trump had a tweet for that, too. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108217768187449344
