And to think: It all started with an underwear selfie. On January 27, Kim Kardashian took to Snapchat to document herself on set, wearing underwear, a plunging t-shirt, and beaded corn rows. The reality star later took to Snapchat to tell fans that she was wearing "Bo Derek braids" and that she was "really into it." Stop the record.
Is it really appropriate to attribute Fulani braids — which originated with a West African tribe — to a white 1970s model? The Internet had some thoughts on this one, and it was only a matter of time before Lindsay Lohan weighed in.
Let us explain: after the Twittersphere exploded in light of Kardashian's comments, Lohan added her voice to the chorus of people who found the Bo Derek attribution "confusing." To wit: "I am confused," the actress wrote, in response to Kardashian showing the world her "Bo Derek braids."
Kardashian was quick to clap back. "You know what's confusing ... your sudden foreign accent," she wrote, in a remark aimed directly at Lohan.
Ouch! Can't a gal speak in a "mixture of the languages she can understand or is trying to learn?" But, we digress. Seemingly unfazed — and even emboldened — by the controversy surrounding her hairstyle, Kardashian posted a series of defiant, NSFW snaps on January 29.
Starting with a photo that was boldly captioned "BO WEST," the mom of three went on to post a variety of risqué images. In each of them, she wore the controversial corn rows. Behold:
Did you catch that memo about Kardashian giving zero effs? We think it's safe to say that this is the central thesis of her above photo montage.
At least one person is enjoying Kim's social media spree and that would be her sister Khloe Kardashian. On January 29, the pregnant star took to Twitter to express her glee over her sister's photos and clapbacks. "Confidence looks good on you Keeks," Khloe wrote.
Why do we have a feeling this is so not over?
