Johannesburg - Kim Kardashian West is in hot water once again. She’s been accused of black face after she posted photos of herself to promote her latest beauty campaign.

This isn’t the first time the reality TV star has been in trouble for the same reason. According to Evening Standard in June last year, Kim faced the same accusations and released a statement through an interview with New York Times.

The mom of three took to Instagram on Wednesday to promote her cosmetic line, KKW Beauty, and its new Classic Collection by sharing two striking images of herself wearing the products which some fans slammed as "insulting."

Music News reported that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star told fans she hadn't intended to offend anyone and had been really tanned when they shot the images, but her team later adapted the shots.

“I would obviously never want to offend anyone,” she told the New York Times. “I used an amazing photographer and a team of people. I was really tan when we shot the images, and it might be that the contrast was off,” she said.
