7 Stars Who Were Slammed for the Same Offensive Thing… But Still Do It!
Everyone loves to try new things: lipsticks, moisturizers, different practices from different cultures, you name it! One of the most popular “trends” today is sporting braids, cornrows or Afros that are very prominent in African/black culture. It’s such a bummer because members of different cultures who embrace that culture aren’t always trying to be offensive. They just really think it’s cool and that should be cool, right?

However, they still don’t get a pass.

Ah, the Queen of All Cultural Appropriators. Her mission is to always make a statement and she does that often. But the public never goes down without a fight. Miley got dragged through social media for sporting faux locs at the 2015 MTV Awards and still, here she is, donning some aqua braids during her Milky Milky Milky tour.
