The fashion and culture website Popsugar posted an article earlier this week titled, "Kylie Jenner Is Basically a Mix of All Your Favorite Latina Celebrities." It has since been taken down in the wake of the social media firestorm that erupted in its wake. Why was everyone so angry? Because Kylie Jenner is absolutely, completely not a Latina woman, let alone several of them combined into some sort of horrifying Frankenstein's Celebrity Monster.
Here are some of the measured responses:
@POPSUGAR she is WHITE so the fact that you guys said that is not only ridiculously stupid but also offensive— misato (@ultravividzayn) December 14, 2015
Is @POPSUGAR going to write how underrepresented Latinas are in media? Or just how white girls copy Latina features for styling purposes?— SINVERGÜENZA (@DeniseYLosDinos) December 14, 2015
