Kylie Jenner "Blackface" Photo Raises Eyebrows, Ire

by at .

An inappropriate photo of Kylie Jenner hitting the Internet is not exactly unusual.

But there's something different about the latest Instagram scandal to surround this 17-year old reality star: she's actually wearing clothing!!!

Jenner’s body is not up for discussion in any way, as critics are instead looking higher up in response to a new set of photos she shared with followers today.

Is Kylie Jenner really posing in blackface?!?

Kylie Jenner Goes... Blackface?

“What I wish I looked like all the time thank you,” Kylie wrote as a caption to the above picture, which was snapped by Marcelo Cantu.

It was an odd comment, combined with an odd photo, both of which caused many to think Jenner was saying she wished she were African-American.

In response to the outcry, Kylie cleared up her caption by penning a second message that reads:

"Yes, In another world I wish I could have pink hair & blue eyes & covered in sparkles."

Then, she deleted the original image and added two more (below), explaining them as follows:

"This is a black light and neon lights people lets all calm down."

This celebrity is accustomed to creating a stir with her pictures, but typically chatter is based on whether or not Kylie Jenner underwent plastic surgery... or discussion over why Kylie Jenner is showing off so much cleavage.

It is not typically race-based.

"so just got the time to head on social media lol.. "Jenner added on Twitter.

"The photographer used a black light & neon lights for those photos... in this world I'm happy w the way God created me. Happy Easter everybody."

In October of 2013, Julianne Hough was forced to come out and apologize after she donned blackface as part of an Orange is the New Black Halloween costume.
