Vanessa Hudgens Obviously DGAF That She Keeps Pulling Highly Racist Stunts
As sad as it is, we’re pretty used to seeing Vanessa Hudgens post offensive pictures online. The 27-year-old actress usually causes the most drama in the spring when she simply cannot go to Coachella without a bindi on her forehead or Native American headdress in her hair, but this time she switched things up and decided to offend a different culture at a different time.
The High School Musical star took to Snapchat yesterday to show off her new hairstyle, a braided ‘do that many think is a wig.
Almost immediately after she posted the pictures, many felt offended and called her out for cultural appropriation, which many consider to be racist.
these braids, too far. really. @VanessaHudgens

@VanessaHudgens you're so trifling for having those braids in your hair

The fact you're smart but lack on the knowledge of this isn't okay & then thinking wearing those braids are ok after that. @VanessaHudgens

This isn’t the first time a white female celebrity has been accused of appropriating African American culture. Both Kendall and Kylie Jenner were called out repeatedly for wearing cornrows, and Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift & Christina Aguilera were all called out for being racist in their music videos.
Vanessa has yet to respond to any of the backlash she’s receiving online.
*SIGH* When will you learn, Baby V?
Of course, Vanessa Hudgens isn’t the only star to unintentionally post insensitive content:
Just months after the huge Vanity Fair photo scandal rocked Miley Cyrus fans' world, another picture hit the Internet to shock them all. The pic featured Miley and her then-BF Justin Gaston pulling their eyes back in attempt to make them look more Asian. After the OCA, an Asian American advocacy group, slammed the photo, Miley issued an 'apology' that read, "In NO way was I making fun of any ethnicity! I was simply making a goofy face." Ohhhkay....
