Taken out of context? Kylie Jenner is in some serious hot water after telling a magazine ‘I started wigs.’ See the rest of her quote below.
She told the magazine: “I started wigs, and now everyone is wearing wigs. Kim (Kardashian) just used my wig guy last night…I just do whatever I want to do, and people will follow.”
Not only is this racially charged, it’s just not true.
Kylie Jenner: ‘I Started Wigs’ — Hair Debate Over ‘Marie Claire’ Quote
Kylie may be known for sporting candy colored wigs, like this light pink ‘do during New York Fashion Week or this blue look for Coachella. She wore a long, mint green wig in New York in September 2015, but she is surely not the first celeb to wear one.
Very recently, stars like Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry were known for their outlandish wigs, ranging from this bubblegum pink on Katy to Nicki’s leopard spotted hair in 2011. African American women have been wearing wigs for years and years, and why not go way back? Royalty and kings in Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome wore wigs. They date back hundred and hundreds of years.
Kylie responded to the controversy on Twitter on April 11, writing: “When publications switch up your words for hype.. Damn.”
