Khloe Kardashian’s latest campaign for her clothing line Good American has landed her in trouble and attracted a lot of social media flak. The television personality has been labelled racist after she posted two photographs posing alongside black model Slick Woods. In the controversial image, where both the models are wearing black, Woods is seen kneeling and holding onto Kardashian’s leg. The reality star, on the other hand, is standing and looking down while touching the back of Wood’s head.

Kardashian captioned the photo in question: ‘This chick right here is crazy, sexy, cool all rolled into one @slickwoods! Slick was so much fun to shoot with! She’s a force to be reckoned with! #GoodSquad #GoodAmerican.’

Immediately, the post attracted negative attention and many social media users slammed the photographs for portraying a ‘master-slave’ imagery. While, some felt that the Kardashians were oblivious to the sentiments of Black people others stated that it was the position and expression that implied the master-slave impression. The post and photograph were soon deleted. However, it didn’t stop the social media users from shunning down the photographs. Many took to Twitter and also questioned model Woods for agreeing to do such a shoot. Slick Woods had previously worked for brands such as Calvin Klein and Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty.

Here are some of reactions the photo shoot garnered.
