Appreciation Or Appropriation? Adele’s Latest Post Sparks Controversy!




Adele is out here living her best life — getting snatched, slaying on Instagram, you know, the usual. However, the vocal powerhouse has stirred up a bit of controversy with her latest IG post, but the question still remains … is it appropriation or appreciation?

Over the weekend, Adele attempted to show her love of the Noting Hill Carnival by sporting Bantu Knots and a Jamaican flag bikini top. The huge street festival, which was cancelled this year due to COVID, is a yearly event in Adele’s hometown of London that is led by the British West Indian community and celebrates their culture.

And while it may have come from a place of well-intentions, many bristled at the “Rolling In The Deep” singer’s appearance.

However, for every person that felt offended, there was another person who applauded Adele’s efforts.

What do you think? Does Adele deserve a pass as she is so obviously influenced by, and openly appreciative, of Black culture — or, did she take it too far this time?
