Hey! It’s just a hairstyle that I wore in the movie “10” @KimKardashian calls it the Bo Derek because she copied my pattern of braids. I copied it from Ann-Margret’s backup singer from her Vegas Sho. And we all copied Queen Nofretari. I hope Her Royal Highness is flattered. pic.twitter.com/UuQkh8VKOi— Bo Derek (@boderek) January 31, 2018
Kim Kardashian West received major backlash over her "Bo Derek inspired" braids she showcased via social media earlier this week. In a matter of hours her hairstyle was trending with many claiming cultural appropriation.
Bo Derek's only public response to the viral uproar was in a tweet (seen above) where she claims the origin of the hairstyle is from Egypt's Queen Nofretari.
What are your thoughts on the response?
