Amelia Hamlin, the girlfriend of KUWTK star Scott Disick, was charged with “black fishing,” and her defense of the Instagram story only made matters worse.

Amelia Hamlin recently found herself in trouble over a social media post, and her response only caused more controversy. The girlfriend of keeping up with the Kardashians Star Scott Disick looked drastically different in recent Instagram photos, and people weren’t happy about it. The reaction was quick and she was accused of something that the Kardashians know very well.

Although she was already in the public eye as the daughter of Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, Amelia has become more famous since dating Scott. As a result, more eyes are on their social media. On February 25, he posted three photos to his account with the caption “whiplash has me like … “ Looking much, much more tanned than usual, several commentators accused her of “black fishing.” That term is used when a white individual makes himself appear black or racially ambiguous through self-tanning, makeup, cosmetic procedures, fashion, and hairstyles. After deleting all the comments, the model turned to her Instagram stories to address the criticism.

A very glaring omission of this statement? A real apology. There was no promise to do better, or an acknowledgment that his actions were wrong, regardless of intention. Blaming her Italian heritage was bad enough, and the photos above question her claim to tan easily for it. Amelia has often posed in the sun and gone on a tropical vacation with Scott, and she never looked so dark. In the pictures from days before, she looks much paler. His claim that he didn’t tan himself was hard to believe. The difference between the color of her face, which seemed far from natural, and other areas, such as her hairline, was drastic. And the tan was not the only thing that could be interpreted as “black fish.” Many assume that, like her mother and Kylie Jenner, Amelia has a lip filler, a cosmetic procedure that many place in that category. And her braided ponytail seemed to have left the edges, or “baby hairs,” a traditionally black hairstyle.

The since deleted comment section had many references to the Kardashians’ own “black fishing” story. The family has been constantly accused of this and other cultural appropriations for centuries. They have repeatedly benefited from other cultures as well, most recently with the Kendall brand of tequila. The Kardashians are far from the only “black fishing” criminals. Other defendants include many influencers and models, as well as pop singers such as Ariana Grande and Rita Ora. “Black fishing” and cultural appropriation is a serious and sensitive topic, and celebrity responses to the allegations have never been satisfactory. Amelia is only 19 years old and new to fame, so maybe she will learn in time. But his lack of apology isn’t a great start.

This latest controversy is not the first time that Amelia has received public criticism. In the past, her relationship with Scott was targeted, mainly due to the large age difference. But a keeping up with the Kardashians connection means a lot more attention, good and bad.
