Justin Bieber gets attacked for wearing Dreadlocks.
Posted 4/5/16

Justin Bieber accused of appropriating black culture with his new blond dreadlocks

'People are annoyed cause when black people wear this style they are stereotyped as druggies and are “unkempt",' says one fan
Justin Bieber has stirred controversy with his new dreadlocks, with fans calling him out for cultural appropriation.

The 22-year-old singer appeared on stage at the IHeartRadio Awards with his new hair style and posted several photos of the dreadlocks on his Instagram.
Fans vented their frustrations, arguing that black hair styles are more than a fashion vogue, and cannot simply be culturally appropriated.

“People are annoyed cause when black people wear this style they are stereotyped as druggies and are “unkempt” look at Zendaya for example. She had fake dreads and she was stereotyped, But when people such as JB [...] wears them its suddenly 'the latest trend’,” wrote one Instagram user.

Justin Bieber got dreads. There’s your (unwanted) daily dose of cultural appropriation,” wrote another user on Twitter.

While another added, “Dreadlocks are cultural appropriation. we've taught u this before. Your hair is fine as it was”. (sic)



In the past, Bieber has made his own views about similar issues known, defending Kylie Jenner when she too was accused of cultural appropriation for her cornrows.

“Guys leave her alone, were all trying to figure it out and she happens to be under a microscope!” the Canadian singer wrote on Instagram. ”I'm the first to know this. But saying she's being racist because she has her hair in braids is ridiculous.”

Bieber also prompted some criticism when he posted a photo of himself with cornrows three months ago, but remained self-deprecating throughout, writing “these will be off tomorrow”.

Nevertheless, the pop star has evidently changed his tune, inadvertently wading head-first into the controversial question of white dreadlocks and cornrows, which have frequently divided prominent figures in the past year. Jenner and Miley Cyrus have also been rebuked for their “culturally appropriative” hairstyles.

The controversial question of white dreadlocks has been at the forefront of discussions in the past week, since a video displaying a black student accosting a white student over his dreadlocks amassed more than three million views in three days.

A spokesperson for Justin Bieber did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Damn it. I hate it when people force me to be on the side of people that I despise. I need bleach for my mind.

Natural dreadlocks form when hair is neglected for months to years. Uh, oh. We better not culturally appropriate the prissy, modern version of "caveman hair."

Personally i'm not into Justin Bieber stuff, but that's just prejudice to judge how someone styles their hair. You should be able to do what you want. Silly people ,-,

it's just hair. how droll can ones life be if they become this enraged over fuckin' hair?

If someone wants to attack justin they should at least take the less humiliating route and attack him for his character a couple years ago, before he attempted to even clean up his act, instead of him wearing... a goddamn hairstyle... that doesn't "belong" to anyone.

Well it fits his image anyway.. lol.. anyway no wonder he got some crazy fans.. just look at some of the shows where a crowd of girls are running after him..lol...

But yes its annoying that well can give some support to why they shouldn't care about it.
like F.. me its annoying when was this a thing? Does the schools or activists teach them that this is unaccepted?
