Remember that time Marie Claire applauded Kendall Jenner for rocking "new epic" cornrows and Twitter had a meltdown? Well, it appears Vogue Magazine just kicked off take two.

The fashion and lifestyle magazine published an article on Wednesday titled “We’re Officially in the Era of Big Booty,” in an attempt to give a history lesson on the progression of cultural regard for derrieres in anticipation for the release of a new Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea song.

The majority of criticism lies in the article’s failure to look back further than the 90’s or acknowledge the specfic relationship between popular opinion, butts and the female black body -- but people have a lot of bones to pick with Vogue's booty argument.

Naturally, Black Twitter responded the best way they know how -- with the creation of a hilarious, biting hashtag: #VogueArticles. In two days over 4,500 tweets have swarmed the internet with fake article names shaming cultural appropriation.
