People are not happy with Justin Bieber after he posted this photo to Instagram, saying that his reported girlfriend Hailey Baldwin "made [him] get corn rows like an absolute douche bag".

People on Twitter – including Bieber's fans – have since called out the singer for cultural appropriation:

Hasn't one of your friends educated you on why cultural appropriation isn't right?, honestly don't be like this I stg @justinbieber

Every time I warm to @justinbieber he does something dumb like get cornrows

cultural appropriation:) thanks for promoting it:)))))) @justinbieber

Some people did come to his defence, however.

Idk man, I wouldn't be so quick to say Justin Bieber with cornrows is cultural appropriation.

I think Bieber looks fly with cornrows

Oh, Spencer.

This isn't the first time Justin has been involved in something like this. In July of last year, the musician came to Kylie Jenner's defence after she posted a similar photo to her Instagram account.

Kylie – who is a friend of Justin's – has been accused of cultural appropriation several times since.

Justin commented on the photo after Kylie was criticised for her hairstyle, arguing that "saying she's being racist because she wants her hair in braids is ridiculous".

He was also criticised back in 2014 after a video surfaced of him telling a racist joke, for which he issued a formal apology.

Looks like some people aren't going to forgive and forget this time.
