In latest Kardashian publicity stunt news, Khloe Kardashian once again made herself a target of cultural appropriation accusations by rocking bantu knots in a recent Instagram post. The 32-year-old reality TV personality sported a black Oakland Raiders t-shirt, a pair of $1,890 Givenchy wedge leather boots and a black “Koko” choker with the controversial ‘do. She called herself a “bantu babe” in the post’s original caption but later deleted it after getting slammed by offended netizens.

However, that didn’t stop the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star from going out in public still wearing the bantu knots. If Koko didn’t get the attention she wanted with the hairstyle, she got it with her loud camo-on-camo ensemble. She paired an oversized camo bomber jacket with a camo-print shirt tied around the waist, and finished her look with black suede thigh-high boots.

It’s unfortunate that gorgeous shoes had to be dragged into this mess. Khloe’s pair in the first picture seem to be her old Givenchy wedge boots. The second pair looks like the Gianvito Rossi suede cuissard thigh-high boots also previously spotted on Alessandra Ambrosio and Kendall Jenner.
