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:
