Kim Kardashian Dresses Like Selena For Halloween…Umm…No.


Kim Kardashian-West, also known as the nadir of Western Civilization, dressed up like the late Selena Quintanilla-Perez for Halloween. Yes, THAT Selena Quintanilla-Perez. Kim wore Selena’s iconic purple jumpsuit and sequins combo and a wig resembling Selena’s beautiful long black hair. Latino Twitter was not having it. We’ve written about how non-Latinos should not dress up like things from Latino culture. That’s because our culture and traditions are not a cute costume for you to wear, they are our heritage and tradition. I have to wonder if Kim was lighter skinned if she would have worn brownface. As if that wasn’t enough she also danced around to “Bidi-bidi-bom-bom” or attempted to at any rate. Selena is not yours to wear. You might as well have dressed up in a sombrero and bandoleros and talked like Speedy Gonzalez.

I was at a Halloween party in which a White dude showed up in blackface as Kanye West. Not cool, right? I bet if Kim had seen her husband being disrespected like that she would have flipped the hell out, as rightly she should have. So, my question is: if it isn’t cool for this random a-hole to wear blackface, then why is it OK for Kim to do the exact same thing as far as ethnic and cultural appropriation goes with Selena?
