Fans on Twitter were unhappy with how Kim looked in the photo. One commented on Instagram, "I just think that that's not contouring because it's a little too dark everywhere and if it's not black face it's a little too close."
Another wrote, "Why did she retouch the photo to make herself look so much darker."
"You dont have to do blackface," a fan tweeted alongside photos of Kim with her natural skin tone and her darkened skin tone.
