Happy Halloween, courtesy of Kim Kardashian. The reality star kicked off All Hallows’ Eve by channeling her inner Cher. However, it’s her second costume that has outraged Black Twitter, causing them to drag Miss Kardashian-West.
On Saturday night (Oct. 28), Kim decided to dress as the late R&B icon Aaliyah. She used the singer’s 2000 “Try Again” music video for her inspiration.

Black Twitter was NOT happy with Kim’s choice of costume and dragged her for trying to emulate the Princess of R&B. “Aaliyah” even became a top five trending topic.

Kim Kardashian doing a Halloween costume as Aaliyah is the most disrespectful thing I’ve seen in the last couple of years.

However, not everyone opposed Kim’s Aaliyah costume, especially since she didn’t use any form of blackface.
There is literally nothing wrong with Kim’s Aaliyah and Cher costumes. Just say you hate her and move on. pic.twitter.com/A0shxYDcom

Kimberly Kardashian West looks great dressed as Aaliyah. THAT is how you pay respect without doing Blackface. Great job @KimKardashian! ????

As long as black face is not incorporated into the look, Aaliyah can and will always be a costume to keep her legacy going. pic.twitter.com/2o8v2DGbBx

On Friday night (Oct. 27), Kim attended Casamigos’ annual Halloween bash as Cher at the 1973 Academy Awards. She was accompanied by her best friend Jonathan Cheban dressed as Sonny Bono.
This was definitely a better choice.
