Kylie Jenner has been accused of 'blackfishing' after a video uploaded to her Instagram story showed her with a visibly darker complexion.
The term 'blackfishing' refers to someone who uses makeup, tanning, hairstyling and other cosmetics techniques to make them themselves appear black or racially ambiguous.
Jenner, who is currently pregnant with her second child with Travis Scott, caused uproar on social media last week after posting a video where her skin looked extremely tanned, prompting claims she was 'blackfishing'.
"so y’all get mad at that Jesy Nelson girl for “blackfishing” but nobody says anything when it comes to Kylie??? I’m just confused," wrote one, referencing former Little Mix member Jesy Nelson who has heavily faced her own accusations of 'blackfishing'.
"nobody talks about kylie's blackfishing huh..." said another, while one commented, "Black fishing much @KylieJenner," alongside a photo of Kylie from 2012.
