Did Bo Derek catch this kind of flak over cornrows?

Kylie Jenner is taking some heat for braiding her hair. Apparently now cornrows are off-limits to some. Actress Amandla Stenberg calls it “cultural appropriation.” So… just to be clear… is it also “cultural appropriation” when someone with curly hair straightens it? What about when they dye it a different color? Or bleach it?

Somehow I don’t think Bo Derek caught this kind of flak when she set the cornrow trend in the 1979 movie “10”? Everyone, and I do mean EVERYONE, got cornrows.

At this point it seems like people are going out of their way to find something, ANYTHING to be offended by. How about we all just lighten up a little bit? This politically correct stuff is getting out of hand (and that’s putting it mildly!)
