Over the last couple days, Kim Kardashian has been flaunting a new hairstyle. What she refers to as "Bo Derek braids" (Bo wore the same hairstyle in her 1970's film 10) are actually a traditional Western African style of braids called Fulani braids. They are basically small cornrows with beads added to ends. Not surprisingly, Kim was called out across social media for wearing the braids in the first place and for crediting a white woman for the hairstyle. And on Monday night, it appeared that Kim decided to respond.
