Justin Bieber: The new appearance of the pop star that caused reactions

April 29, 2021

Justin Bieber received strong criticism for his renewed hairstyle.
Justin Bieber did dreadlocks his hair again and found himself again in the crosshairs of accusations of "cultural appropriation" that he had faced for his hairstyle five years ago.

The pop star posted on his personal Instagram account various photos in which he appears with colorful drealocks, but the comments that followed proved that he had not learned his lesson since the last time.

Justin Bieber had dreadlocks reappearing in his hair at the iHeartRadio Music Awards 2016. Shortly afterwards he shaved his hair to remove all the dreadlocks.

While some of his fans praised the reappearance of "Dreadstin", there were also Instagram users who accused the singer of cultural appropriation.

"Didn't you say that you learned about Black culture? "So what is this nonsense?" One user wondered.

After the deaths of George Floyd of Breonna Taylor and even more black Americans at the hands of police, who sparked protests in support of the Black Lives Matter movement last summer, Justin Bieber admitted how "inspired" and "benefited from the culture of Mavron ", referring to the way in which he sings, dances, appears on stage and dresses.

In a note posted on Instagram in June 2020, the 27-year-old artist promised to use his platform "to talk about racial injustice and systemic oppression and to find ways to be part of the necessary change."

However, Justin Bieber was recently accused of using the Black Lives Matter movement to promote his new album "Justice", which features excerpts from speeches by activist Martin Luther King Jr.

Many listeners found it difficult to link the African American Movement for Political Rights leader's message with the lyrics of other songs, especially "2 Much" about Justin Bieber's love for his wife Hailey Baldwin.

However, the daughter of Martin Luther King Jr., Bernice A. King, said she supported the message of solidarity with Justin Bieber and his "Justice" album.
