Like clockwork, when Halloween rolls around so do the culturally appropriating costumes. So when Kim Kardashian attempted an Aaliyah costume, the singer's stans weren't having it.
I think it's a bit of a stretch to say that Kardashian was stealing Black culture with her costume, but the Twitter community was really not having it.
Before calling someone out for stealing from the culture, it's vital that people take a step back and REALLY see if someone's appropriatiating.
Kardashian didn't attempt to change her complexion nor change her hair texture when becoming Aaliyah. Kardashian ALSO dressed up as Cher and Madonna this year for Halloween to pay homage to other fierce musicians which, as Vogue said, demonstrates how Aaliyah is viewed as legendary as those other artists.
After years of being accused of Blackface and cultural appropriation, Kardashian MIGHT have finally been more culturally sensitive. We should at least acknowledge her minimal progress towards wokeness.
