Justin Bieber Got Dreadlocks And People Are Accusing Him Of Cultural Appropriation

What do you mean (by these dreads)?

When you (or your Belieber pals) picture human thirst trap Justin Bieber, this is probs what you think of:

Long flowing locks, tattoos, a nose ring(?), etc.

But you're wrong. Da Biebs just released a new photo himself sporting dreadlocks. He captioned the photo "WHY?"

WHY indeed.

WHY indeed.

Apparently in between posting #TBT photos of him and ex-girf Selena Gomez, he's been working a ton of styling products into his locks.

This isn't the first time he's done something ~different~ with his hairs. In January, he briefly went purple.*

*This could have been from using too much purple shampoo — made especially for colored blonde hair — but who knows?

Fans are having some feelings about Dread Justin and his cultural appropriation of a black hairstyle.

Lmaooo nah Justin Bieber is so fucking annoying . He knows Dreads/Cornrows is cultural appropriation yet ..

Bieber once defended his friend Kylie Jenner after she was accused of culturally appropriating black hair by wearing cornrows.

Bieber wrote on her Instagram. "Guys leave her alone, we're all trying to figure it out and she happens to be under a microscope!" Bieber wrote, according to the photos of his comment. "I'm the first to know this. But saying she's being racist because she wants her hair in braids is ridiculous. Let's focus on the bigger picture and instead of fighting over something stupid let's do something about equality, but it doesn't start here blasting a 17 year old kid for wearing braids smh."
