Kim Kardashian was accused of “blackfishing” after recently posting a makeup tutorial video, prompting viewers to “fix” it in a bid to match her real skin tone.
The beauty mogul took to her Instagram Story to show fans how she glammed up using products from her KKW Beauty line. She then asked viewers not to “judge” her for her “pale hands,” as she applied gloss on her lips.
Kardashian wanted her fans to focus on her applying “Soulmate Lipgloss in the center [of her lip] to make it juicy,” but fans got distracted by her hand that seemed to be a few shades lighter than her face.
Viewers then took screenshots of her face, and called her out for her mismatched skin tones. “Her hand is like 12pm and her face is like 6.55pm,” one Twitter user commented. “Why doesn’t she wear her actual skin color instead of getting shades too dark for her? Questions need answers,” another remarked.
The criticisms kept coming, and one Twitter user, in particular, decided to edit Kardashian’s face to match her “pale hands.” Kardashian now looks stark white in the edit, with unblended contours on her forehead, cheeks, and nose. The result has cracked up fellow social media users, with some likening her to Michael Jackson.
