Kylie Jenner Says ‘Brown Skinned Girl’ Caption Was Photoshopped: I Never Said This
Update #2 (Aug. 17th): Kylie Jenner has broken her silence on her now viral “brown skinned girl” Instagram caption that led to plenty of criticism on Instagram. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star shared multiple screenshots, claiming that the controversial caption was photoshopped.
In her first photo, she wrote on her Instagram stories,
“Saw online someone photoshopped this photo I posted to change my caption from ‘Brown eyed girl’ to ‘Brown skinned girl’. I never said this”
She then said her first caption was actually a heart Emoji before she changed it to her current caption,
“Brown eyed girl”
Original Story: Beauty mogul Kylie Jenner is under fire for her recent Instagram post. The 23-year-old posed with tanned skin in a tie-dye jumpsuit. She used this caption, seemingly inspired by Beyonce’s song, “Brown Skin Girl,” from her recent “Lion King: The Gift” album:
“brown skinned girl”
Kylie Jenner was immediately called out by fans and followers for the controversial caption, being that she is a Caucasian woman. The youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner crew limited the comments on the post – and upon changing it, her new caption, instead, reads:
“brown eyed girl”
This isn’t the first time Kylie Jenner has been accused of cultural appropriation. Petitions were created in hopes of having her cameo in Cardi B’s “WAP” music video removed. Cardi B took to Twitter to defend her, stating,
“Not everything is about race.”
