This is what she tweeted as she shared a photo of herself in braids in Barbados…and she got really positive responses
Cultural appropriation according to Wikipedia “is the adoption or use of elements of one culture by a member or members of a different culture”
The girl probably apologized in order to avoid a backlash from Black twitter. Some white girls have been previously attacked online by Black twitter for wearing braids and corn-rows because, according to them; braids are part of black culture and therefore should not be worn by whites.
But her apology was unnecessary as no black was offended by it
