Twitter rage: Singer Adam Levine accused of cultural appropriation for his “corn hawk” hair style

Some people have way too much time and rage on their hands.

From Daily Mail: Adam Levine has been accused of cultural appropriation after unveiling a new haircut, which he has dubbed the ‘corn hawk.’

The Maroon 5 frontman, 40, revealed the unusual look featuring three cornrows down the center of his head and the rest of his hair shaved off.

Social media quickly responded the controversial hair style, with one user writing: ‘Another privileged white man without a clue.’

‘Why does @AdamLevine look like that sh***y rapper from the Trailer Park Boys? First you do the Halftime Show (Super Bowl), which was an all-time low, now this! Cultural appropriation plus you look like a moron,’ another Twitter user wrote.

Another tweeted: ‘Another privileged white man without a clue.’

Meanwhile gossip reporter Perez Hilton summed up the look with two words: ‘The caucasity!’

One person questioned whether it was cultural appropriation or a ‘mid-life crisis.’

Another wrote: ‘Dear Adam Levine… look at your life and then look at your choices.’

Others were adamant that white men should not be wearing their hair in cornrows, with one observer writing ‘Listen I’m all about rockin’ your own style and “you doing you.” But, someone please tell Adam Levine that dreadlocks for white dudes is NEVER ok.’

So where’s the outrage for the following examples of “cultural appropriation?”

Guess the motto, “my body my choice” can never apply to a hairstyle you want to rock.

Liberal utopia of Baltimore: Rat and rodent-infested, demorat-run city

By now you’ve heard about the big uproar over President Trump tweeting the truth about demorat-run Baltimore: It’s been infested with rats and rodents for A LONG TIME.

See the following videos:

Yet apparently speaking the truth is now raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacist.

Instead of addressing Baltimore’s many, many problems, the liberals choose to attack the messenger and his supporters. Because you know, OrangeManBad.

Keep it up libtards. At this rate, y’all will go completely bonkers in November 2020.

Manufactured outrage: Actor Chris Pratt criticized for wearing “white supremacist” Gadsden flag t-shirt

And they wonder why President Trump calls them #fakenews.

Complete and utter garbage from Yahoo:

Update: This article was updated on 17 July with the initial headline, ’Chris Pratt criticised for ‘white supremacist’ T-shirt’ being amended to ‘Chris Pratt criticised for T-shirt choice.’ References to White Supremacism in this article have been removed.

Chris Pratt is facing criticism over a T-shirt he was pictured wearing featuring a controversial symbol.

The Marvel star’s top shows the American flag with a coiled snake over the top and a message underneath which reads “Don’t Tread On Me.”

The writing and snake combo on its own is depicted on the Gadsden flag; a symbol created by Christopher Gadsden, a Charleston-born brigadier general in the Continental Army. It came to prominence during the Revolutionary War of the US by colonists who wanted independence from Great Britain.

Although the symbol has a non-racial history – it is has been used by the U.S. men’s soccer team and Metallica – over the years it has also been adopted by political groups like the Tea Party and some Libertarian groups, as well as gun-toting supporters of the Second Amendment. It has therefore also become a symbol of more conservative and far right individuals.

It’s why some people are critical of Pratt wearing a T-shirt featuring the Gadsden flag iconography.

Many have posted their feelings about it on Twitter. (The article goes on to list three tweets.)

Pratt has most recently been promoting the first trailer of Pixar’s new animation Onward in which he plays one of two two teenage elf brothers, alongside Tom Holland, who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left in the world.

Pratt is the voice of Barley Lightfoot and Holland his younger brother Ian in the film which hits cinemas March 2020.
