Get Frazier the fuck outta here
Next box braids will be known as "waterfall braids"
It’s hair…no one gives a damn
"Bo Derek braids" good excuse for appropriating black culture. Plus, no one outrage over black women stereotypes. Just telling the truth.
Fuck that BoDeck whatever the fuck her name is that bitch who is white didn't create shit, y'all need to quit telling us to shut the fuck up about what is offensive to MY kind. If you're not black or ever felt what that shit feels like your opinions are being ignored PERIOD.
Come on… what’s the big deal? It’s just a hairstyle and it looks good. Plus black girls straighten their hair all the time😂
Ironically thats this channel is called" complex"because of ensecure black people
This is what happen when black men give white bytches wayyyyy too much power. First you hand our children off to them and now you've given them permission and encouragement to siphon off of our culture. This (which is one of many examples) is why the AA community is dying. Meanwhile white folks are just laughing and laughing. Thanks to bm's like Kanye.
complex makes up story's
So she's getting bashed on for not giving credit to the right person/group? But if she did give credit to whoever, wouldn't people still give her shit for wearing braids and not being black? You can't win.
What's next? What if I make a calzone or cannoli and don't credit the Italian origin of the food? I'm not Italian. Is that going to end up being the next level of cultural appropriation? Are people going to start getting offended if you eat or make food that's from a different culture? Do you hear how fucking stupid that sounds? Tf
There are important issues that everyone should be putting their time and energy into, definitely not this.
Omg omfg!!!! People turn more into a bitch every fucking year, like just stfu worry about your fucking self, that culture appropriation is fucking dumb people should be able to do wtf they want tf
who gives a fuck? its her hair she can do whatever she wants. people need to stop getting so butthurt over what someone else does to their body
Who cares….nasty bitch famous for nothinh… Kim's followers are dumber than she is… think about how difficult that is to achieve. Screw the whole retarded family
She's mimicking Bo Derek …Lets call her
All they ask is that she call them by their proper name. Dassit.
Black people are so sensitive . Let her be. Im mexican and i better see no black folks eating tacos because u are vulturing my culture
Those braids in particular are afrucan originated braids, not asian, not european. Saying that they cldidnt come from so called blacks is correct because there was no white man around to create the racial construct of racial classification. Its african, period!
How dare dis bitch
Culture appropriation doesn't exist.
No one wants to talk about white racism but if a woman has a certain hair style that black people commonly use its racist
Omg it’s a hairstyle but hear are black people pulling a victim black minority card fuck off it’s hair you’re all dramatic
CAN YOU BLM SJW BITCHES GROW UP AND STOP MAKING EVERYTHING A PROBLEM. AND FUCK U COMPLEX FOR BEING A WHITE HATING CHANNEL. AND FUCK U FRAIZER
so when i see a black person with straight hair i'll be sure to point it out
Who the fuck cares bruh
Complex fuck off and report something real
Black women chill the fuck out!
They are going to do whatever the fuck they wanna do. Damn.
Black peoples just want something to be mad at lol
Today I saw a black guy playing on his IPhone. I called him out for culturally appropriating technology. Also I asked him to take off his jeans, remove the bracelets and leave his car for good
Fulani braids lol you WE WUZ KANGZ lot need to shut the fuck up
Fucking hell of course this kid is offended.
I hated the kardashians but they should leave her alon, it's just hair
Thots do what ever to stay relevant 🤔
If this is such a big deal then why isn't black women having straight hair not cultural appropriation? I know none of yall black women have naturally straight hair smh
Black people want everyone to be equal but then won't let all cultures be allowed to do what they want
Really? I live in Compton and Mexican and white girls wear braids all the time and nobody be complaining.
Bo Derek any day of the week,no way to Kim k
Fuck sake so only black people are allowed to have braids? Fuck off. Let people dress the way they want. And if you’re going by that logic, every black woman throw your weaves away because your appropriating white peoples hair
Black ppl be crying about everything nowadays! Pussies bruh
SO WHITE PEOPLE CANT ROCK BRAIDS?????WTF COME ON YALL
Twitter is mad annoying
