Khloe Kardashian may have been the biggest celebrity misstep this Halloween season after her Bratz costume sparked chatter about her blackfishing.
I have to be 100 percent honest and say that when I initially saw the photo of the Bratz costumes on Khloe’s page I thought she was giving a shoutout to her friends because I couldn’t find her in the pic.
It wasn’t until she posted her individual shots that I realized she was the Bratz doll in yellow.
To be fair, it’s Halloween and oftentimes people are unrecognizable in their costumes, but it seems it’s Khloe Kardashian’s hue that’s causing an issue with the crew.
One person tweeted, “If Khloe’s name wasn’t right there, I’d never believe that this is her. Choosing Bratz is a pretty safe choice to get away with looking like a racially ambiguous/mixed black girl. Our skin is not a damn costume.”
Someone else wrote, “I am a huge Bratz fan & I truly like #KhloeKardashian…still there are so many Bratz dolls and you can dress like Yasmine of the Bratz without darkening your skin…’trying us on like costumes before discarding our bodies like rinds of strange fruit.’ – Jesse Williams”
There were others who defended Khloe’s costume and slammed people for always finding an issue with her.
“Y’all don’t let Khloe Kardashian do — !!!! She doesn’t look like she’s trying to be black. She looks like herself & IT’S HALLOWEEN… she’s a BRATZ doll…y’all are annoying!!! & Y’ALL LOOK A MESS,” a supporter tweeted.
The comment section on Khloe’s post pretty much mirrored the sentiment on social media.
The Kardashians are no stranger to blackfishing accusations, especially where Bratz is concerned.
You may recall that Kylie Jenner’s promo photos for her mini Bratz collection also garnered a collective side-eye.
Do you think Khloe Kardashian’s Bratz costume was offensive?
