Vanessa Hudgens has once again come under fire for cultural appropriation after she wore a dream catcher in her hair, despite the fact that she is actually of Native American descent.
The picture was shared via her Instagram account and included the caption, “Chin up, Princess… Or the crown slips,” which was immediately met with backlash from her followers on both Instagram and Twitter. One person commented, “Don't put dream catchers in your hair! That you have to constantly be told not to do this and dragged means you are not listening and it's frustrating af!!” Whilst another said, “You constantly go out of your way to disrespect cultures to look ~boho. It's rude as f*.”
In case you missed it, this isn’t the first time Hudgens has come under fire for cultural appropriation. In 2012 she was slammed for wearing traditional Indian wear, including a bindi in the middle of her forehead and she was put under the pressure cooker again in 2014 when she wore a Native American headdress to Coachella Music festival.

Society has become sick with its obsession with sterilizing diversity; it is very counter productive,” said one follower. Another commenter agreed, saying, “Don't let these kids talk about "cultural appropriation" since none of them have contributed to their cultures. I'm part Native American, love the dreamcatcher. Ignore the trolls, babe.”
Vanessa seems less than phased about the whole outburst, continuing to post to her social media feeds as normal, even repeating the controversial outfit picture with the caption, “No Monday blues here.”
