A Twitter user posted,"India has Rekha, Priyanka Chopra, and Aishwarya Rai and they get Kim Kardashian? Vogue India is truly trash and over for not acknowledging brown beauty."

*Indian women gracing the cover of international fashion magazine*
Indians: Indian women are making india proud abroad
*Kim kardashian graced the cover for vogue India 2018*
Indians: we don't want it, we want only and only an Indian artist to grace the cover of our magazine

Outrage over Kim Kardashian being on the cover of @VOGUEIndia.
I wonder how Indians would react if Americans said,
“We have so many GORGEOUS American girls who could be on the cover of Vogue USA but you put this Indian woman on there. In 2018. Newp.” pic.twitter.com/5n83F0Tt2w

idc about Kim Kardashian being on vogue India BUT
the only thing that’s annoying is the many brown to dark skin Indians who are underrepresented by their light skinned counterparts????
especially since many of them have just as beautiful (if not more) features

You do realise Kim Kardashian on an Indian vogue is diversity right? Here's a picture of what diversity looks like (Italia vogue) Vs Indian vogue pic.twitter.com/Eu6QqC140Z

Kim Kardashian on the Vogue India cover is nothing special... but I’m actually more concerned that even when the magazine chooses to feature Indian celebrities and models, they are almost never dark skinned. Which is a gross misrepresentation of real-life India.

Y’all acting like Vogue India renamed the damn magazine to “Vogue Kim Kardashian”. Get off her meat, she looks good af

so many pretty Indian models out there and Vogue India somehow chooses kendall jenner and kim kardashian for their covers. How hard is it to have Indian women represent Indian culture.

It’s 2pm and I’ve already read 20 “why did Vogue India use Kim Kardashian instead of a desi woman?” tweets, why are so many brown girls getting pressed like they were personally robbed of a modelling job? ????

Same woman criticizing Vogue India are the same ones that don't embrace their nose, skin (skin bleaching) and eye colors (contacts) ! I see it everyday in Canada! ⚡️ “Vogue India faces backlash for Kim Kardashian West cover” https://t.co/b0xSKg8tov
