The Internet Thinks Kim Kardashian's Aaliyah Costume Was Cultural Appropriation

Kim Kardashian is known for her elaborate Halloween costumes, and this year was no exception.

The reality star dressed up as Cher, Madonna and Aaliyah over the pre-Halloween weekend, and her portrayal of the late latter artist drewfire on Twitter. "She looked good!" Another noted, "People are mad about Kim Kardashian's costume, but I'm just glad my girl Aaliyah is trending RIP sweet angel". She came with her BFF Jonathan Cheban as her Sonny instead of husband Kanye West. And though Kim saw tons of positive feedback for her arguably uncanny costumes, she was also heavily criticized for dressing up like a black woman.

Halloween isn't officially until Tuesday (Oct. 31), so Kim has a few more days to show off new costumes.

Kourtney looked incredible dressed as late singer Michael, wearing his trademark leather pants, a white shirt and blazer combo, leather gloves, a gold belt and leather boots. The two held hands, acting as the musical icons at the 1991 Academy Awards.

It also didn't take long for Levi to express his gratitude to the fan community as well as his appreciation for DC as a whole. A release date hasn't been set for Shazam , but New Line plans to start filming in Toronto in February 2018.


The star, who cut a tour short in July due to damaged vocal cords, wore a glittering dress and elaborate makeup, but didn't explain her look.

However, Kim Kardashian's third ensemble, that of late pop star Aaliyah met with mixed reactions on the internet.

Kim, meanwhile, captivated fans with her outfit, looking near-on identical to the Like a Prayer singer.

Kim K has upped the ante when it comes to being more sophisticated with costumes choice during spooky celebrations. Fans repeatedly pointed Kim Kardashian of showing her nipple in the short clip.
