“so nodoby gunna call rihanna out for cultural appropriation … hmm I see,” said one Twitter user.

But others were happy to jump to the singer’s defense.

“This is not cultural appropriation!” said another Twitter user, “It’s appreciation. Clearly, Rihanna is paying homage, respect and acknowledging Chinese culture, as styled by Chinese stylists, approved by Chinese editors. Conclusion: Yes, you CAN wear other culture’s clothing. Just be mindful of it!”
