pharrell elle magazine cover native american headdress cultural appropriation apology


That's the free advice we're giving every celebrity contemplating the appropriation of anyone else's culture — whether it be for a photo shoot, a music video, a live performance, or even just a Halloween party you thought would be papparazi-free.

And though the pic is in black and white, there is an unmistakable ruddiness to the cheeks, which many feel depicts "Redface."

It also calls to mind similar controversies
