Rihanna Photo Leads to Cultural Appropriation Debate


Recently, Rihanna had a photoshoot with Harper’s Bazaar China, and the shoot is generating lots of reaction from the public.

To some folks, the shoot is perfectly fine, and it showcases the originality and uniqueness of the Rihanna brand.

Others, however, find it offensive — Rihanna couldn’t replicate the Asian culture, and as such, should not have brought such disgrace to her brand.

According to Harper Bazaar China, the shoot is an excellent mix of the eastern artistry and western style.

For now, no comment has emerged from Rihanna.
