Black Twitter Drags Marie Claire For Saying Kendall Jenner Takes ‘Braids To A New Epic Level’



First Miley Cyrus invented twerking, now this.

Earlier today Marie Claire got a taste of what it feels like to be on Black Twitter’s bad side after they shared a photo via the magazine’s Twitter account of Kim Kardashian’s younger sister, Kendall Jenner, rocking a set of cornrows. While there was nothing particularly wrong with the photo of the 18-year-old reality star, the caption that MC tacked onto it automatically sent Black Twitter into defense mode.



And of course, as you’ve probably guessed, all hell broke loose from there. Tweeters quickly responded to the comment, noting that it’s nearly impossible for Kendall (or anyone else for that matter) to take cornrows to a “new epic level” since braids have been a thing for what seems like forever.





#MarieClaire eventually became a trending topic on Twitter. And well, we all know how that goes.



The magazine later issued a brief apology for the tweet.
