bold braids

Another day, another public dragging, only this time women’s glossy Marie Claire found itself on the wrong side of Black Twitter.

After tweeting a picture asserting reality TV star (and baby sister to the Kardashian trio) Kendall Jenner was taking “bold braids to a new epic level,” several pointed out there was nothing “new,” “epic,” or “bold” about Jenner’s cornrows. As a matter of fact, many others have been doing the same thing for years.

Here are some of our favorite tweets (but do yourself a favor and take a look at the #BoldBraids hashtag):

And…just in case the NSA is watching the tweets. Can sistas in the military please be allowed to rock their Bold braids?

Marie Claire responded, telling readers they “didn’t mean to offend or imply that cornrows were new” and their tweets were “poorly worded.”
