Kendall Jenner Cornrows Pic Tweeted by Marie Claire, At Center of Race Debate

Kendall Jenner may not be posing in underwear in the following photos, but she's still stirring up controversy.

The 18-year old was recently photographed in cornrows by Marie Claire, which proceeded to Tweet the following picture of the reality star and include with it a caption that describes the look at "epic" and "bold."

Of course, donning cornrows is neither epic nor bold for many in the African-American community… and they let the magazine hear it via Twitter soon after the image went viral.

"Why don't you go to an elementary school with black girls & tell me once again how Kendall Jenner started cornrows as a trend?,” wrote one user, while another added:

"Bold. New. EPIC! If only @marieclaire called any of the millions of brown and black girls rocking braids these terms with regularity."

In this case, of course, Marie Claire is at the center of the scandal more than Kendall.

Still, Jenner is no stranger to controversy in the fashion world. May we remind you of this NSFW photo of Kendall Jenner exposing her boobs?
