Reality TV star Kim Kardashian just released her own beauty line KKW Beauty which had top American beauty influencers grace the launch party. The kits which obviously did great in the market considering it is a Kardashian product were reviewed by the beauty influencers in attendance and one of the top influencers who attended the launch and reviewed the new products was Nigerian YouTuber Jackie Aina.
With over 1.5million subscribers on YouTube, Jackie is known for her honest reviews on products especially when it has to do with women of colour, you can always count on the vlogger to say it as it is and not sugar coat.
Unfortunately, the internet seems to think Kim has an issue with Jackie’s KKW BEAUTY review as the mum posted pictures from the event and tagged everyone except Jackie.
Jackie who is not a stranger to controversy herself, took to Instagram live to address the issue;
I just gave some really constructive feedback about the product. I didn’t glorify the product in my review, but I also didn’t bash it. Kim puts up a picture on Instagram of everyone who came to the launch, literally everybody who came to the launch and tagged everyone but me. Is it shadier to not put up a picture at all, or to put the picture up and to not tag the one person? She knew what she was doing. Did I think it was shady? Absolutely. Was it worth attacking her? Not necessarily.

Kim and her team have not addressed the issue. Although, she has untagged all the pictures from that event.
Do you think it was an honest mistake or was Kim being a little petty?
