thewolvesoffaolmanor asked:✿ if it were another non-white culture that avril lavigne, people would also be in an uproar. it just so happens that a few white female artists happen to appropriate japanese culture, so that's what people focus on. ✿
Honestly who actually cares. She wasn’t putting anyone down. And lol you want to talk about culture appropriation???? Do you know how many black/white/Spanish artists don’t even appropriate to there own culture and make there own ppl look absolutely ridiculous. Ppl who are responding to this aren’t Japanese and don’t live in japan to say it’s even racist to begin with. Also, she is in no way putting anyone down, or putting any stereotype. All she is doing is talking about parties, sleepover and cute things. Are you seriously kidding me. Let the girl have fun , for god sakes who cares if it’s japan. Honestly??? Besides she did this video to freaking show her love for hello kitty, not slander Japanese ppl! And OMIGOD do you know how many black artists I see trying to speak Spanish?? I don’t see anyone hopping on them???
I don’t have a problem with any artist or person doing what they like. I have my own opinions as to why I don’t like video, and they aren’t for these reasons, that have to do with anything socially harmful. But seriously can everyone just stop because honestly, she isn’t hurting anything or anyone. Everyone’s just upset because she’s doing a mainstream jumping on the bandwagon of japan and no one approves because she isn’t Japanese.
Just just stop. Sorry if I came out rude or I’m offending anyone but I’m just annoyed at how dumb ppl are.
HOW IS THAT EVEN APPROPRIATING JAPANESE CULTURE??? BY TALKING ABOUT HELLO KITTY? DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD HAVE HELLO KITTY BRAND STUFF??
It’s a damn company, their products will be sold internationally. If that’s misappropriating culture, then god damn. Everyone get rid of all your shit.
Fashion is NOT a stiff ideal. The fashion in the video is something that’s available to everyone. Don’t paint white people as racists for delving into a culture that’s not theirs when people of other ethnicities do the same thing.
K-pop artists, black American artists, Spanish artists I’ve seen all that shit. Some of y’all don’t know what these black people out here be doing, talk dirty to me is a good damn example of some nigga talking about he got pussy all over the world and somehow it’s ok for Jason Derulo but god forbid a white person does it it’s racist, dehumanizing women and women of color, and shit like that.
Literally the only thing I see you’d have a problem with is either the fashion and the dancers OR her god awful Japanese. I saw the video there was seriously nothing wrong with it.
Y’all put every non white artist on a pedestal and wreck your own damn race, stop that shit. You just look god damn pathetic.
