Vanessa Hudgens Received Backlash For Braids

Vanessa Hudgens Received Backlash For Braids

Vanessa Hudgens wears a pair of Givenchy sandals as she leaves a Pilates class on Sunday (November 6) in Studio City, Calif.

The 27-year-old actress kept it comfy in a cropped, over-sized sweater and flowy pants.

A couple of weeks prior, Vanessa posted on her Snapchat story that she was wearing a braided wig, captioning one, “Yaaas braids.” Check out the photos below.

After the internet saw the photos and video, Vanessa received a ton of backlash for cultural appropriation. Not all of the comments were negative, some defended her saying that she wasn’t intending to offend anyone.

    My gad, America you’re doomed. Misplaced hypersensitivity and social medias are destroying your nation.

    We are suppose to be a nation as one and yet any time someone does something people have deemed as “cultural related” to a culture they’re not people want to make a scene. Not everyone looks at everything as a race. These are material things. If she told her hair dresser that she didn’t want braids because it was a black thing then she’d be accused of being a racist.

    The majority of us are not 100% anything anymore and our ancestor’s histories have combined. Everything from race to religion to land to freedom to beliefs have been fought on both sides from my ancestors and I’m proud to be such a mix of everything because it proves that people can change and grow.
