The oh-so-opinionated Whoopi Goldberg says she is tired of people over-using the term “cultural appropriation.”
On Thursday’s episode of The View, the ladies sat down to discuss the controversial Kendall Jenner Pepsi ad. We’ve all seen it by now and it has more than received an astronomical amount of backlash for appropriating the Black Lives Matter movement.
While Goldberg agrees that the ad was tasteless, however, she feels some type of way with calling it appropriation.
“It’s just a crappy idea, it didn’t work. [But] this cultural appropriation stuff is really starting to make me crazy. If we’re gonna go with cultural appropriation, wear natural hair. If we’re wearing white lady hair, isn’t that appropriation as well?” she said. “Listen, now, there are some things where you can say ‘Hey, you need to be more sensitive,’ but this ain’t one of them. This is a bad commercial, that didn’t work.” Take a look at the video below.
In the same discussion, Sunny Hostin criticized Jenner for not questioning the ad in the first place. “When you have been in this business for 10 years and in 2015 she already got reprimanded because she wore cornrows, she already had a taste of controversy. I think she should have known better.”
Social media tweeters definitely had lots to say against Whoopi’s views on weave. Weave indeed is a protective style and if people choose to wear it as such, it shouldn’t be an issue. Check out these tweets below:
How do you feel about Whoopi’s opinion when it comes to wearing “white lady hair”? Is she totally delusional or does she have a point?
