Kendall Jenner accused of cultural appropriation for emoji use, fans mock uproar

Kendall Jenner found herself in trouble after she was accused of cultural appropriation for tweeting a fist emoji that some complained was darker than her skin tone.

"Sister powerโ€ฆgirl power," Jenner tweeted with a fist emoji.

While some Twitter users criticized the model saying she should have used the fist closer to her skin tone, Jenner's fans jumped to her defense saying people were overreacting.

Jenner faced a lot of heat earlier this year when she starred in a Pepsi ad in April that was met with backlash on social media.

Many accused Pepsi and Jenner of making light of the Black Lives Matter movement. The company later issued an apology, and pulled the campaign less than a day after it was released.
