Kim Kardashian West has come under fire after netizens accused the American socialite of ‘blackfishing’.

It all began when the 40-year-old tweeted a video of her wearing an all-brown outfit along with a brown heart. However, many noticed the colour of Kardashian’s hand, which appeared to be of a much lighter colour tone and did not match the rest of the body.

Here, take a look:

Viewed over 5 million times, the 6-second clip was flooded with angry reactions as netizens called out Kardashian for attempting to appear black. While some accused her of blackfishing — a term used to describe someone who pretends to be black or of mixed race on social media — others said that the socialite was in denial of her true colour.

Some also accused Kardashian of misleading people while promoting KKW make-up by comparing her hands — one with and one without make-up.

Here are some of the many reactions to Kardashian’s viral tweet:
