Kylie Jenner denies refusing to tag black-owned fashion brand on her Instagram account
Kylie Jenner has denied accusations that she was refusing to support a Black-owned business because she didn't tag a dress designer on Instagram, saying the allegations against her were a 'reach.'
The 22-year-old entrepreneur took to Instagram on Monday to share photos of herself modeling an orange bodycon dress with mesh detailing at the exclusive Amangiri resort in Canyon Point, Utah.
While Kylie didn't initially tag the brand, eagle-eyed fans were quick to find out the dress was made by LoudBrand Studios, a Black-owned business based in the UK.

Controversy: Kyle didn't initially tag LoudBrand Studios, a Black-owned business, when she took to Instagram on Monday to share photos of herself in the brand's dress
People took to the comments to urge her to tag the brand, with some claiming she actually deleted their messages.
A number of critics went as far as accusing her of refusing to support a Black-owned business, insisting the snub was intentional.
'Kylie Jenner is refusing to tag the designer of the dress she just posted, which is a black owned brand, and now limiting her comments. [Clown face emoji] @LoudBrndStudios is the designer!' Twitter user @zoeyy227 wrote.
'AND FOR EVERYONE SAYING "she doesn’t have to tag it if she bought it" YES I KNOW. BUT SHE DELETED COMMENTS THAT WERE TAGGING THE BRAND AND THEN LIMITED COMMENTS AND THATS GRIMEY!!! Stop defending them, they won’t notice you losers,' she added.

My view: Eagle-eyed fans are ready to call celebs out when they're in the wrong, especially those that like copying from other designers. Kylie did the right thing by tagging the brand, thanks to her, the brand is now known worldwide and their clothes are sold out.
