Kim Kardashian West took to Snapchat to unveil her latest look – her long blonde hair styled into silver corn rows. 

The 37 year old called her new hair her ‘Bo Derek braids’ – referencing the American actress’ appearance in the 1979 film, 10.

However, mother of three Kim was soon blasted by some of her fans, as she was branded her “disrespectful” and accused of cultural appropriation.

Sharing a video of herself showing off her braids while wearing a filter with giant glasses, Kim said: “So guys I did Bo Derek braids, and I’m really into it.”

However, one unhappy fan revealed their unhappiness at Kim’s latest look, writing: “I’m still a bit peeved on how @KimKardashian had the audacity to call these braids “Bo Derrick” braids.”

However, other followers defended Kim over her braids, with one person writing: “What’s the problem with Kim Kardashian having braids? Stop making nothing into something.”

Another person commented: “I actually like Kim’s braids lol” and another said: “You look so good with braids!!!! Haters gonna hate.”
