American pop star, Justin Bieber has been accused of cultural appropriation over his hair again.
In his recent looks, Justin Bieber had debuted some short dreadlocks causing stirs and reactions of cultural appropriation and racial insensitivity.
Recall that Justin Beiber was also condemned for wearing “Cornrows”, a hairstyle, of African origin, having rows of tightly braided hair close to the scalp.
According to history dreadlocks are heavily linked to the society of Black people, and wearing them depicts cultural appropriation. Although some Black women tagged the 27-year-old hairstyle wrong and rude, told him to remake it and apologize.
Some other folks defended the Popstar saying he is free to make his hair the way he wants.
CNN news in talks with Justin Beiber’s representative for comment, said:
“Cultural appropriation is about the power dynamic. When people with power and privilege decide to ‘validate’ customs and traditions that oppressed people have long been marginalized for by saying ‘This is the hot new thing,’ then we have serious problems,” writer and speaker Feminista Jones told CNN in 2016.
