Another celebrity has been dragged into the Kylie Jenner “blackface” Instagram photo scandal!
Kylie shared two photos, captioned “@marcelocantuphoto @joycebonelli @chrisdylanhair @hubblestudio.” And another, that she deleted, captioned, “What I wish I looked like all the time.”
Both featured the 17-year-old wearing dark metallic makeup. Some people, however, felt the photos looked a lot like blackface and called the reality star out for something they felt might be offensive.
A user on Twitter (via E! News) quickly noticed that Kylie did have one fan among the naysayers. Actress Zendaya had clicked to likc the photo, adding “Eff it up” with a symbol of some hands clapping.

After getting caught, Zendaya admitted that she didn’t really think before publicly supporting the photos. She seemed to feel it was a mistake and said sorry to her fans.
“I didn’t see it like that at first…that’s crazy,” Zendaya tweeted. “My baaaaadddd”.
Zendaya explained what she originally thought about the photos: “At first, I saw more of an avatar look but thank y’all for keepin me on point….we all gotta stay aware of what image we project #lessons”.
