NEW YORK, NEW YORK - OCTOBER 24: Kim Kardashian attends KKW Beauty launch at ULTA Beauty on October 24, 2019 in New York City.

Kim Kardashian and her family have always been controversial for a number of reasons, but today she is drawing controversy and criticism for something that is a hot-topic issue in today’s society.

Recently, in a magazine shoot for 7HOLLYWOOD Magazine, Kim Kardashian appears to be wearing blackface.

The people who shot the photos claim that the photos are intended to be an homage to Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor.

However, it’s important to note that Elizabeth Taylor herself had a controversial history of cultural appropriation.  She played Queen Cleopatra once in Cleopatra, and even donned blackface for the lesser-known Brazilian film “Il giovane Toscanini”.
