Kim Kardashian proudly showed off her latest image shoot on Tuesday and Twitter isn’t impressed.The reality star 36 years old posed as Jackie Kennedy for Interview magazine and that was enough to provoke ire from fans of the late First Lady.And if channeling beloved icon wasn’t enough to spark a backlash, Twitter users also wanted to know why Kim’s skin color was a darkened to match that of her daughter North, whose father is rapper Kanye West.
One of those who replied to Kim’s original tweet gushing about how special she thinks photos are pulled no punches.’This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen,’ she tweeted.This is a disgrace,’ another person wrote.’You are no Jackie O,’ added another.’Jackie O turning over in her damn grave right now,’ another Twitter user chimed in. Kim posed with her daughter, who’s four years old for series of pictures that hark back to the Kennedy White House of the early 1960s.But social media was quick to wonder why the 36 years old, who is of Armenian and British/Dutch descent, looked identical in skin color to her bi-racial child.
When her interviewer trans rights activist Janet Mock asks her about raising a ‘mixed black girl’ Kim commented ‘I’m very conscious of it. Kanye always has his family around and people who look like my daughter that’s important to me.’She’s obsessed with her curly hair, and if she finds someone who has same hair, she runs to them and is like, ‘You have curly hair like me?’ And we get to talk about it.’She added ‘We also talk about it with my niece Penelope, because she and North look really different, but they’re best friends and they’re together all time.’On Monday Kim took to Instagram to talk about her new spread.’Just wanted to thank @stevenkleinstudio for pushing me to do a shoot that was very different & powerful & allowed me to pay homage to the iconic Jackie Kennedy who I admire & respect!’ star wrote in her caption.The cover and editorial was shot by Klein.
