“Can’t stop won’t stop” – Every mainstream fashion magazine’s policy toward cultural appropriation.
Black Twitter’s Response: Y’all gon’ get this work…
Mainstream fashion magazines have caught a lot of heat for taking things that are regular everyday things in Black culture and claiming that they are totally new trends. Examples of this happening in the last year alone include magazines proclaiming that timbs, du rags, box braids and full lips were “new beauty trends,” but it seems like the black public has reached a tipping point.
Last night, Cosmopolitan’s twitter account tweeted the following tweet proclaiming that “hair tattoos” were “the next beauty trend you desperately need in your life” and black twitter came back with at them with a brilliant satirical vengeance.
Instead of complaining that Cosmopolitan was taking a hairstyle that almost every black young man and hip black Salt ‘N’ Pepa’ inspired teenage/college girl has had at least once in the last 30 years, Black Twitter decided to beat them to their next move of cultural appropriation by creating the hashtag #CosmoHeadlines and making fun of almost everything they could possibly try to appropriate in the future.
