DUBAI: Kim Kardashian West has lashed out at actress Lindsay Lohan’s supposed “confusing” accent, which the latter says she picked up while learning new languages, including Arabic.
On Monday, Kardashian West shared a photograph of her newest hairstyle — blonde cornrows, which she called “Bo Derek braids.” She quickly received backlash on Instagram from many commenters who accused her of cultural appropriation.
Meanwhile, Lohan, who is reported to be designing her own island in Dubai, commented on a photo of Kardashian West’s new look, saying: “I’m confused.”
The reality star and beauty mogul clapped back: “You know what’s confusing… Your sudden foreign accent.”
Kardashian West is referring to the much-reported accent Lohan adopted in late 2016.
“It’s a mixture of most of the languages I can understand or am trying to learn,” she told the Daily Mail at the time. “I’ve been learning different languages since I was a child. I’m fluent in English and French can understand Russian and am learning Turkish, Italian and Arabic.”
No-go for Joe Exotic: Donald Trump’s pardon list omits ‘Tiger King’
Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, was sentenced in January 2020 to 22 years in federal prison
Updated 20 January 2021
OKLAHOMA CITY: One name missing in President Donald Trump’s flurry of pardons is “Tiger King” Joe Exotic. His team was so confident in a pardon that they’d readied a celebratory limousine and a hair and wardrobe team to whisk away the zookeeper-turned-reality-TV-star, who is now serving a 22-year federal prison sentence in Texas. But he wasn’t on the list announced Wednesday morning. Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, was sentenced in January 2020 to 22 years in federal prison for violating federal wildlife laws and for his role in a failed murder-for-hire plot targeting his chief rival, Carole Baskin, who runs a rescue sanctuary for big cats in Florida. Baskin was not harmed. Maldonado-Passage, who has maintained his innocence, was also sentenced for killing five tigers, selling tiger cubs and falsifying wildlife records. A jury convicted him in April 2019. In his pardon application filed in September, Maldonado-Passage’s attorneys argued that he was “railroaded and betrayed” by others. Maldonado-Passage, 57, is scheduled to be released from custody in 2037, but his attorneys said in the application that “he will likely die in prison” because of health concerns. Maldonado-Passage’s legal team did not immediately respond to a request for comment early Wednesday. The blond mullet-wearing zookeeper, known for his expletive-laden rants on YouTube and a failed 2018 Oklahoma gubernatorial campaign, was prominently featured in the popular Netflix documentary “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.”
