Twitter Drags Justin Bieber For Being #WhiteWithDreads

By  | 

All this fuss over Justin Bieber’s new hairstyle has us wondering if we’ve learned nothing from last week dreadlock scandal? Bieber is the second White person in seven days to make headlines over wearing locks.

Bieber debuted his new hairstyle over the weekend, prompting a lot of folks on Twitter to hammer him over it. Many accused the singer of cultural appropriation, while others called his new look “stupid”.

Last week, San Francisco State University student Cory Goldstein was videotaped being harassed by a Black woman over wearing dreadlocks.

As we wrote last week on HipHollywood.com, dreadlocks are not exclusively a Black hairstyle. In fact, the hairstyle can be found all throughout history. Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Celts and Nordic Vikings wore them as well as the Ngagpas monks of Tibet.
