Headlines 22/06/2018

If you're a Kardashian fan you know that Kim recently faced backlash after her daughter North was spotted with her hair straightened. 

Many fans were calling Kim out for damaging her daughter's naturally curly hair, with such tweets as:

Kim has now responded to the backlash, saying at her recent KKW Beauty and Fragrance pop-up launch in L.A on June 20th.

She (North) wanted to try straight hair so I said she could try it for her birthday party and then if she liked it, she could do it in New York for her birthday,

It's very limited to just that. And she knows that.

Kim also explained why she chose to wear braids to the MTV Movie & TV Awards, which received criticism for cultural appropriation:

"In no way am I ever trying to disrespect someone's culture by wearing braids. If anything, my daughter was so excited to see me get matching braids with her. When we did her hair in these braids, she was so excited."
