This is not the first time that a Bollywood celebrity has been trolled for sporting the Native American war bonnet.
The latest we get to know is Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan along with his youngest son sported the native American war bonnet, and people are not happy with it.
A new photo was shared by Shah Rukh Khan’s wife Gauri Khan on her Instagram account which features SRK and their youngest son AbRam.
People came in condemning this as cultural appropriation, as these war bonnets are an integral part of Native American history and culture and should not be used as a fashion accessory.
Cultural appropriation is the act of inappropriately adopting ideas from a culture that’s not one’s own, especially of minorities, in an ignorant and unacknowledged manner by a relatively dominant community.
It was earlier this year when Daboo Ratnani unveiled his celeb calendar for 2019 and Shraddha Kapoor sported the native American war bonnet and received a severe backlash.
