Fans won't be happy with her response...

Kim Kardashian appears to have responded after being slammed for cultural appropriation again by numerous people on social media. 

The reality star, who has been accused of cultural appropriation in the past, sparked fresh controversy after premiering her new braided hairstyle on Snapchat last night. 

“So guys I got Bo Derek braids, and I’m really into it,” she said in the clip, referencing the white actresses’ look from 1979 movie ‘10’. 

However after posting the clip to her Snapchat, she was hit by a backlash by fans who accused her of culturally appropriating the braided style that is inspired by the Fulani women of East and West Africa.

While others feel the response is an over-reaction:

Kim Kardashian then appeared to respond to the backlash on Instagram, writing: “Hi can I get zero f*cks please, thanks” while looking at her mobile phone.

 

Hi, can I get zero fucks please, thanks
