Kylie Jenner took to Twitter to address the outrage over her photo shoot with Marcelo Cantu.

After Kylie posted a few of the shots yesterday, many labeled the photos as ‘blackface’ and proceeded to berate Kylie with accusations of being racist after she captioned one of the pics “What I wish I looked like all the time.”

A few hours after the photos were shared, Kylie returned to social media to defend the art.

Looking at Marcelo Cantu’s past work, we see that the use of neon lighting & glitter is common in his art.

Do you still think Kylie was being ‘racist’? Let us know your thoughts!
