ONTD Original: The Metamorphosis of Kylie Jenner : A Tale of Appropriation of Black Culture

This is the True Story of how a rich, white girl from Calabasas, California went to great lengths to transform herself into a black woman.

WARNING: This post features graphic shots that your eyes may not be able to bear. If you are sensitive to inflated lips, oompa loompa levels of orange, unblended weaves, extreme discoloration, this is not the post for you.


Humble Beginnings: In All Her White Glory

On August 10, 1997 Kylie Kristen Jenner was born in Los Angeles, California. Kylie is the youngest daughter of Caitlyn Jenner (English, Scottish, Irish, Dutch and Welsh) and Kris Jenner (English, Scottish, Irish, German, and Dutch). Despite popular belief, Kylie Jenner is not mixed with Armenian.

At the age of 10, Kylie Jenner became a regular on E! reality television series that chronicled the lives of her family. In these early years of television production, Kylie lived life as a privileged Caucasian young girl. She was cute and full of life. It was too early to see any signs of what was to come.

Instagram Fame: Where It All Begins

223 weeks ago, Kylie Jenner joined Instagram. Given her family name and television fame, Kylie was able to quickly cement her presence on social media. Note: This is where it all began.

Nothing to see here really. Typical teenager behavior. You slowly start to notice her slightly fuller lips. Most of ONTD would say she looked her best during this period.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.

Over the next few months we start to observe a drastic change in the size of Kylie's lips and skin color. Her lips doubled in size and her look began to mirror other black women on social media. Kylie started frequently hanging out with Heather Sanders (IG model, entrepreneur, baby mama of Trell(Tyga's BFF)). She quickly morphed into a Heather Sanders understudy.

Here she is shouting out her inspiration, Heather Sanders.

She was so "inspired" by Heather's look that she made it into a lucrative business!

Her lips just got bigger and bigger and bigger.

And so did her ass and hips.

Then Kylie did the unthinkable. The lip injections, alleged ass injections, tans were just not enough. So, she abandoned her race to become a black woman.

Her skin got even darker

Oh, the appropriation does not stop there!

She even brought out some fried chicken!

A grill! So Houston, Texas.

Borderline blackface?

Her shtick did not last long before she got called out by many people. Most notably, an enlightened young woman by the name of Amandla who was over her shit.

However, all of the criticism did not stop Kylie. Nothing was going to get in the way of her full transformation. She had already begun building an empire with her new image. Impressionable teens everywhere wanted to get the lips of a black woman Kylie look!

Her likes on IG continue to soar. People have become accustomed to her stolen, watered down, digestible look. In 2016, Kylie is known as a trendsetter for young girls. She even recently scored a six figure Puma deal.

Kylie's metamorphosis is complete.

Well thanks to the Internet, Kylie Jenner is able to hop on trends found within black communities much more rapidly. Look to see much more cultural appropriation in the future. Perhaps bantu knots, silk bonnet wraps, kinky curly weaves, complete surgical skin transformation. Who knows what is to come, the possibilities are endless.

What we know for sure is that she shows no signs of stopping yet.


Thank you for your time and patience. I put this together really quickly so my apologies if it isn't all you hoped for.
