HyunA has revealed her thoughts regarding the controversy surrounding her reggae style braided hair on January 17th via her Instagram. HyunA shared the photo above on social media and was trending on Twitter because some people argued that HyunA's braids is cultural appropriation.

The popular star recorded a video where she addressed the situation, stating: "I respect and acknowledge all the fans that love me so don't think too much or too badly about it. Let's try to understand each other. Good night." 

What do you think of this situation?

What I love about most Americans is that they are only aware of like two cultures and assume everything comes from them.

I know I don’t speak for all black people, but for me personally as a black woman, I did not feel offended at all, people seem to forget that there’s a difference between culture appropriation and culture appreciation. She likes the hairstyle and wasn't making fun of it.

Dear Americans,
Please learn the difference.
