Over the weekend, Alyssa Milano stirred up major controversy by showing off a newly styled head full of cornrows. The Charmed actress debuted her new look while in Houston for the Super Bowl. Many are accusing the star of cultural appropriation of this traditionally black hairstyle.
This is definitely not the first time that celebrities have been accused of appropriating cornrows, but one photo of Alyssa in particular has caused an absolute uproar on the internet. One Huffington Post editor pointed out the jaw-dropping reactions from the people standing behind actress in one of her posts.
Alyssa addressed the controversy surrounding her new look on Twitter after someone tweeted, "@Alyssa_Milano Take those braids out. It's supremely disrespectful." Alyssa wrote back, "I'm so sorry you feel this way. I celebrate and embrace differences with crazy amounts of respect and love," seen below.
