Kylie Jenner is the centre of a social media storm after posting images of herself n Instagram.

The 17-year-old posted photos that showed her with a much darker skin tone, captioned, “What I wish I looked like all the time.”

Immediately she was hit with criticism for crossing the line with the historically offensive practice of blackface – makeup used by non-black people to appear black.

Kylie deleted the photos, re-uploaded them and wrote, “This is a black light and neon lights. People lets all calm down.”
