Zac Efron debuted a head full of dreadlocks in a recent Instagram post. 

The post is furthering the ongoing conversation society is having regarding cultural appropriation. 

Many people feel that as a white person, Efron should not wear dreadlocks as they do not belong to his personal culture. 

Others question why different cultures can not share their differences. 

The picture has already garnered 1.5 million likes an d almost 20,000 comments since it was posted. 

'I can’t believe that some of you are mad that he got dreads simply because he’s white,' reads one comment. 'That’s the same as a white person saying that a black girl can’t wear that long, blonde weave running down her back. Hair is hair, not something to classify into separate races.'

'Its cultural appropriation because when we wear it, we get fired from our jobs, suspended from schools, rejected offers etc whereas a white person can wear it, and it's considered cool. That's why we're mad about it,' reads another. 

Zac is not the first celebrity to be accused of cultural appropriation. 

Kim Kardashian has also been criticised for wearing braids and attributing them to Bo Derek, while her sister Khloe has faced backlash for donning Bantu knots. 


Demi Lovato is currently promoting her brand new music video, but it's not her new tunes that have people talking.

The former Disney starlet released the video for her new song Cheat Codes, and some have taken issue with her choice of hairstyle in the scenes.

The singer opted for twisty dreadlocks to compliment her outfits, and is being called out for cultural appropriation because of it. 

Twitter users have been debating the hairstyle online, and many have negative feelings towards her use of the look.

'Nothing says hot like cultural appropriation!!' reads one Instagram comment. 

'Respect cultures, don't appropriate them!'

'Didn't Demi Lovato get the memo about dreadlocks?'

'I don't understand why this is still happening tbh,' a tweeter added.

The singer has yet to respond to the criticism of her look. 



Rihanna has been changing up her look constantly this year, going from a blunt bob to ass-grazing extensions and back again.

But now she's decided to change it up once more by getting dreadlocks.

They're long, straight and beautiful and totally suit the singer.

This comes just a few days after she debuted her Fenty x Puma line at Paris Fashion Week.

Riri captioned her posted: "buffalo $oldier."

What do you think of Ri's new do'?



If his dreadlocks didn't look weird enough on him, Justin Bieber has just debuted a new haircut and we don't know WHAT to think.

The singer showed off his new look on Instagram last night and he has completely cut off his long locks.

Dreadlocks are known to be difficult to remove so we're guessing JB just decided to shave it all off – which we have to say, reminds us of his younger days.

The Biebs has gone through many hairstyles of late, from dying his hair platinum blonde, to the dreads and now the buzzcut.

As much as we love him at the moment, we're not digging this look, but maybe it's just the bad lighting.
