Man, oh man.
For reasons unbeknownst to us, Khloe Kardashian thought it was a good idea to ask the Internet for help finding a doll for her daughter True Thompson. Pretty innocent, huh? Well…it’s the type of doll she asked for that got Black Twitter buzzing.
The reality star wanted a “biracial doll.”
“Anyone know what brand makes a sweet looking biracial baby doll? Nothing too life like. Those silicone babies really freak me out! Some look so real and some look,” the 34-year-old mother wrote.
Yeah she tried it.
And while her stans were incredibly supportive, thankfully there were folks on Twitter that got her together. Here are some of the best tweets that reminded the reality star that her daughter is Black, why there is no reason for her to have a “biracial doll” and how she needs to follow Serena Williams’ lead with a doll like Qai Qai.
I'm not sure why this is a question. My daughter has 2 Black parents and is lighter than True. Just buy a lightskinned Black doll and call it a day. I found a Cabbage Patch doll my daughter's complexion. Google is free and Amazon has everything.— Bärí A. Williams, Esq. (@BariAWilliams) December 28, 2018
Black mothers have been looking and requesting for decades...now that you're the mother of a girl of color, this is the beginning of the many issues you will encounter. You can try the "Our Generation" dolls "Denelle" or "Kaylee" or create your own at American Girl. #GoodLuck pic.twitter.com/Ja7GAfF6QZ— The Black Delegation (@WOKEllaDeville) December 27, 2018
.@khloekardashian is asking for recommendations for a three-fifth compromise baby doll. Because apparently she can sleep with Black men, but not have Black baby dolls.— Preston Mitchum (@PrestonMitchum) December 28, 2018
Help her out y'all. https://t.co/6nCKGwhDKS
you can see the difference between a black mom raising a mixed child and a white mom. aka serena williams got her child black looking dolls darker than her daughter & didn’t ask twitter.— cierra (@cierraidc) December 28, 2018
You could also get her a Black doll?— Ryan Bathe (@michellechel) December 28, 2018
Get your black daughter a black doll. 🙄— Soleil’s Dad 💜 (@TheMrMilan) December 28, 2018
And this is a perfect example why screwing black men does not make white women not racist and/or anti-black.— A Dawn (@HollaBlackGirl) December 28, 2018
They’re not. But asking for a Light skinned doll with good hair would have been tacky so here we are 🙄— FupaMama (@flofraz2) December 28, 2018
Bi-racial doll?? Hmmmm... 🧐🧐— rii (@_missrii) December 28, 2018
Because too black is too much 🤦🏽♀️— Nykol’e Ray (@IamNykole) December 28, 2018
Black dolls come in all shades.— Black Bino (@blackbino) December 27, 2018
People really out here telling Khloe Kardashian that she should make a biracial doll line for her daughter as if her family needs to profit any more off of Black people.. why don’t you support Black owned business, or just buy your daughter a Black doll 🙃— Raeganometry 🌱 (@raeganometry) December 28, 2018
Khloe Kardashian specifically looking for a “biracial baby doll” is funny to me. 😂😂 You mean black sis? You want to find your black daughter a black baby doll because she’s black.— Mama Warbucks (@Tweetdeez_) December 27, 2018
