CELEBRITY Controversy

Pop culture is a melting pot where cultures and customs fuse and coexist. However, when borrowing is done in bad taste, it's called something a little different: cultural appropriation. It's been a hot topic in recent years, and power dynamics between majority and minority cultures are now being discussed more openly than ever.

For instance, Kim Kardashian has gotten in trouble in the past for having her hair in cornrows. But she appears to not have learned her lesson, as she was just spotted in tight braids at her husband Kanye West's Paris Fashion Week show on March 2, leading to renewed accusations of appropriating black culture.

Cultural appropriation is pretty divisive, so what do you think? Click on, and be the judge of these curious cultural appropriation cases.
