*By now it should be pretty clear that if you ask Charlamagne Tha God a question, you’re gonna get an answer … and most likely it WILL be blunt as hell. That’s just how he rolls. When asked about Kendall Jenner‘s supposed Afro in her new Vogue spread (see below), he said the same thing we did: It ain’t no ‘fro!
The “Breakfast Club” host was leaving a Barnes & Noble in NYC Tuesday — after promoting his new book, “Shook One” and told the TMZ guy that Kendall’s ‘do simply wasn’t an afro, as many claimed amid the backlash against Vogue and the model.

Fifteen years and 150 finalists later, the @CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund prize has created global stars, local heroes, a must-watch New York Fashion Week, and, most important, a true sense of community among designers of all ages and backgrounds—all with differing aesthetic and commercial aspirations—who communicate, collaborate, and essentially care for one another through the fun and not-so-fun times. Laura Vassar Brock—one of the founders of 2016 #CVFF winner Brock Collection—says, “We spoke to a few friends who had gone through it, and they all said the same thing: that the Fashion Fund is a life-changing experience. And indeed it was!” Tap the link in our bio to learn more. Photographed by @mikaeljansson, styled by @tonnegood, Vogue, November 2018
Dude’s also got a hilarious explanation for why her hair doesn’t compare to a true ‘fro — and, more importantly, he says he’s not offended by this “cultural appropriation.” By the way, we also shre this in common when it comes to Kenadall Jenner: he/we don’t give a rat’s arse about the youngest and skinniest Karrdashian. She needs to eat!
One mo’ thang. Brothha Charlamagne’s got some tips for people thinking of rocking costumes that don’t reflect their own culture. The guidelines might seem pretty simple but, then again Megyn Kelly said blackface at Halloween used to be cool.

Megyn later apologized for that comment in an email to her NBC coworkers.
Hmm, maybe next time she wants to speak on the black face thing, she might want to check with Charlamagne or her balck associates at NBC.
