Justin Bieber was later accused of cultural appropriation after celebrating his dreadlocks on Instagram.
Justin Bieber accused of cultural appropriation after getting dreadlocks
His new look was also in a poolside snapshot with his wife Hailey:
but while many believers believe that the hairstyle looks great, others could not believe what they saw, and accused the “love themselves” cultural appropriation
the 27-year-old was condemned when he sported this hairstyle for the first time, but he clearly wasn’t discouraged.
Zac Efron has been charged at the same rate in 2018 after he had revealed that he had become dreadlocks for fun.
One person commenting on the post said, “No dude. Don’t do this. I say this as a white woman who grew up incredibly ignorant.”
Another added, “You’ve had so much privilege and experience that you should also be informed that dreadlocks on white people are a cultural appropriation.”
Others argue that the hairstyle dates back to ancient civilizations around the world and that labeling the above examples as cultural appropriation is reductive.
