Karlie Kloss apologizes for Vogue photo shoot faux pas

Karlie Kloss is under fire for cultural appropriation again, and the fashion model has taken to Twitter to apologize.

The 24-year-old fashion model was featured in the latest issue of Vogue dressed as a traditional Japanese geisha, with a patterned robe and black wig, posing alongside a sumo wrestler. Her family heritage is Danish and German.

Social media users were unimpressed with both Vogue for producing and Kloss for participating in a shoot aping an unfamiliar culture.
