After singer Jesy Nelson, now it’s Kylie Jenner who has been accused of blackfishing after she shared a video on her Instagram where she showed her skin tone much darker than her natural color.

The term ‘Blackfishing’ refers to someone who uses things like hairstyling and makeup to create and enhance certain features to make it appear as if they have black heritage or are racially ambiguous.

Recently, the 24-year-old model posted some videos on her IG stories where she was listening to American singer Don Toliver’s new track Smoke whilst in her car, wearing a black tight-fit dress and showing off her baby bump.

But instead of talking about her baby bump or the music, many fans pointed out that the owner of Kylie Cosmetics is wearing a shade of foundation which is made for people who have darker skin.

Many people took over her Twitter to talk about Kylie’s Blackfishing. One user even made fun of her that she looks like she’s wearing the Fenty makeup foundation shade 420, a hue made for Black skin.

Another tweeted, “so y’all get mad at that Jesy Nelson girl for “blackfishing” but nobody says anything when it comes to Kylie??? I’m just confused.” Someone wrote, “Kylie why r u black fishing anyway?? don’t u get more privileges and shit being white anyway.”

This isn’t the first time Kylie has been accused of Blackfishing. Last year, one of her IG posts was trolled for the same reason, with followers claiming Kylie was clearly copying Beyoncé’s look.
