    Some people from Brazil
    They accused her of cultural appropriation
    I don’t take it too seriously
    It involves box braids, and yes she is Afro descendant, maybe she is not seen 100 as African or 100 as white, but I thought it was really fun that she can’t wear things like that, I know it’s for black people, but, she can’t also, she was accused of using the image of a black woman from the favela in a sexualized way, this is wrong, but she also cannot consider herself half black
    What happened what I found strange, because my older grandparents would also think
    She tattooed a part of her ass, I just don’t know which one would really be lmao

    Although she has changed a lot due to plastic surgeries, she seems to have African ancestry as well.

      “Meu pai e família dele são negros (…) e a minha mãe é branca. É que estou sem tempo de ir à praia. Quando eu for, você vai ver: volto neguinha”.

        “My father and his family are black (…) and my mother is white. I just do not have time to go to the beach. When I go, you’ll see: I’m coming back, darling.” In that link
