kim kardashian: Desis slam British Publication for claiming Kim Kardashian behind the ‘nose ring’ trend, Here’s what happened

Socialite and reality show face Kim Kardashian is currently in the limelight for all the wrong reasons attributed to her. However, she is not new to cultural appropriation censure. In the latest of events, the media personality and businesswoman has been associated with a controversy, which has invited a barrage of comments on her and a British daily publication.

What is the latest controversy behind Kim Kardashian?

The controversy dates back to Paris Fashion week occurred in Feb-March this year. Kim Kardashian and her daughter North West were spotted wearing nose rings at the event. All was good at that time, but the controversy erupted when American singer and rapper Lizzo, imitated the same look at the recently concluded MTV Video Music Awards and British Publication credited the appearance as a trend set by Kim Kardashian.

The publication wrote that Lizzo follows the style maintained by Kim Kardashian and her daughter. However, the publication also mentioned the significance of the nose ring as a part of Indian culture. But still, it didn’t go down with the Desis, and they slammed the publication on social media.

Some other Desis slam the Kardashians and the West as a whole, saying that when Indians wear nose rings it is termed as uncivilized, but when they (the West) do this, it becomes a trend. Another user tried to balance it by blaming the publication, altogether for starting the controversy as Kim Kardashian didn’t intend to start this.
