The two got close in the snap as Khloe puckered up for the camera and Malika offered a straight forward face.

While Khloe showed off some serious bling with a diamond chain necklace, large diamond stud earrings and a thick diamond ring as she rested her hand on her own shoulder. 

She showcased a bold eye look with voluminous lashes, bold brows and a rosy lip color. 

Changing up her look yet again, Khloe, 35, donned tight cornrows braids, a style she and her sisters have come under fire for in the past. 

Along with sisters Kim and Kylie Jenner, they have often been accused of appropriating black culture when they don these hair styles in the past.

Just an hour after posting fans in her comments were already pointing to the hairstyle, which she donned after coming under fire for diversity at her company Good America. 

‘So no ones gonna complain about the braids,’ one wrote in the comments. While signaling to the style another wrote ‘Just in time after being found out you only employ 15% of black people.’

Pull up: Just an hour after posting fans in her comments were already pointing to the hairstyle, which she donned after coming under fire for diversity at her company Good America after they released numbers of diversity on their staff in the Pull Up for Change challenge 

The challenge asks companies to reveal how diverse their staff is. According to numbers released by Good American, the company’s staff is 15% black, 52% white and 32% people of color. 

The brand was at pains to point out that reality star Khloe’s co-founder and the CEO of Good American Emma Grede is black and that 84 percent of the workforce are female identifying.

Good American was founded by Khloe and Emma in 2016 and initially offered denim clothing designed a ‘curvier, sexier and stronger shape.’ 

In a statement on Instagram, the company said: ‘Diversity and inclusion has always been at our core, so we see this as an opportunity to highlight the consistent and constant work our brand has done to ensure our mission is felt at all levels of the company.’

It added: ‘We are committed to continuing our focus on diversity throughout our organization: both within the talent and partners we work with and the employees at our office. We refuse to be complacent.’

Fans response to the announcement was mixed with some praising the brand while others didn’t think the numbers were good enough. 

‘With a company with a Black ceo/cofounder, I would expect better numbers,’ one fan wrote. 

While another pointed to what positions the diverse staff is working in saying: ‘What I’d like to see is what positions are they at…if it’s all customer service and warehouse then it’s a problem.’
