Kim Kardashian Denies Blackfishing Allegations

Kim Kardashian has denied allegations that she is regularly blackfishing.

"Obviously, I would never do anything to appropriate any culture," she told i-D magazine. "But I have in the past got backlash from putting my hair in braids and I understand that."

She says it's because of her daughter North West.

"Honestly, a lot of the time it comes from my daughter asking us to do matching hair," she continued. "And I've had these conversations with her that are like, 'Hey, maybe this hairstyle would be better on you and not on me.'"

Kim says she also tries to teach North about her Armenian culture.

"I've definitely learned over time, and I've tried to pass that culture of learning onto my kids too, but then there's also a history of braiding hair in Armenia, and people forget that I am Armenian as well," she said.

Her sister Kylie Jenner has also been accused of blackfishing but has not addressed the allegations.
