Her comments caused a frenzy on social media, with many rushing to slam Kim, calling her out for 'cultural appropriation'. "I can't believe Kim called the cornrows on her hair "Bo Derek braids"," exclaimed one Twitter user.

While somebody else hit out: "I'm still a bit peeved on how @KimKardashian had the audacity to call these braids "Bo Derrick" braids' [sic]."

"Kim K got braids like these. And gave credit to Bo Derek for the style. Am i wrong for being bothered. Because I'm super bothered. That's who tf you give credit for for that style [sic] !? Seriously," exclaimed another.

While a fourth declared: "You should be ashamed of yourself for calling your Fulani braids, boderick braids....you are truly a culture vulture [sic]."

"'First of all, f*ck you @KimKardashian for wearing cornrows and calling them "Boderrick braids". second of call f*ck you again for crediting the creation of "boderrick braids" to a white woman who was culturally appropriating cornrows to begin with [sic]," slated a final critic.

These weren't the only criticisms the mum-of-three faced from fans, either:

Back in 2015, Kim's youngest sister Kylie Jenner got herself into a public spat with Amandla Stenberg after getting cornrows.

Amandla reportedly hit back at the post, writing: "When u appropriate black features and culture but fail to use ur position of power to help black Americans by directing attention towards ur wigs instead of police brutality or racism #whitegirlsdoitbetter [sic]."
