Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion fans are furious over Kylie Jenner‘s cameo in the pair’s new music video WAP.

Many took to social media to remind fans that the star “stole from black businesses.”

Cardi B, 27, and Megan Thee Stallion, 25, broke the Internet last night when they released the music video WAP with cameos from Kylie, Normani, Rosalía, Rubi Rose, Sukihana, and Mulatto.



Cardi B rocked a raunchy leopard-print outfit with breast-cutouts and nipple tassels, while Megan - who recently survived gunshot wounds to her feet - shocked viewers as she twerked and did a split in a thong bodysuit.

Despite the positive response to the video, which encouraged female empowerment and black beauty, most of Twitter wasn‘t so happy with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s cameo, reminding people that she had been accused of allegedly stealing from black-owned businesses.

The mother of one was featured for a longer time than the other artists as she made her way down a long hall wearing nothing but a leopard-print one-piece.

One Twitter user wrote: “Kylie Jenner is a caricature of what she thinks a black woman is and praised for.

“That girl ain‘t never tried embracing her true self. Oh and she steals work and ideas from black creatives.”

A second shared: “Not Kylie StealsFromBlackWomen Jenner popping up on my screen ... ”

And a third specifically targeted the whole Kardashian family: “The Kardashians/Jenner‘s have always appropriated black culture.

“And honestly there could‘ve been other girls that actually needed the spot in the video. Kylie is over exposed as it is.”

A fourth one claimed: “While Kylie Jenner‘s name is trending in a negative way, I wanna add on to it by reminding everyone she stole from black women business multiple times in multiple categories and stripped them of a chance at success, and they complained for years on here and weren’t heard.”

While a fifth one claimed: “She LITERALLY tries on Blackness as an accessory ...”

Fans were specifically talking about the time that Designer Tizita Balemlay of PluggedNYC accused the Kylie Cosmetics creator of stealing the design of one of her camo pieces.

She told Buzzfeed in June 2017 that Kylie‘s stylist had reached out to her and they were the first ones to get their hands on the small designer’s camo collection - months before Kylie came out with her own collection.

Before the interview came out, Tizita had shared a photo of Kylie wearing one of her knit designs.

Most recently, the 22-year-old came under fire after failing to tag the Black-owned fashion label responsible for her sexy desert photoshoot look.

The reality star reportedly deleted any fans who tagged the clothing company in the comments section.

However, after backlash on all her social media platforms, Kylie went back to her latest Instagram post featuring the dress and tagged the brand.
