Kylie Jenner is no stranger to controversy when it comes to her Instagram, and her latest photos have followers angry. On Saturday she posted questionable snaps from a recent photo shoot that resembles the controversial blackface to many. In the photos, she’s sporting heavy, dark makeup, and captioned the image, “What I wish I looked like all the time.”
She quickly deleted the photo after the initial backlash, but soon uploaded another with a caption responding to the situation, “This is a black light and neon lights people lets all calm down.”
Of course fans took out their anger on Twitter.
