Adele has received some backlash for wearing a Jamaican flag bikini top with Bantu knots in her hair as she celebrated what would have been the Notting Hill Carnival.

The singer took to Instagram to share a post showing off her weight loss and $9.5million Beverly Hills home garden, though some accused her of ‘cultural appropriation’ and being ‘insensitive’.

Referring to the second largest carnival in the world, which usually takes place around this time in the streets of west London, Adele captioned her post: “Happy what would be Notting Hill Carnival my beloved London.”

The carnival which is an annual celebration of Caribbean culture was moved online for the first time this year amid the global Covid-19 pandemic.

While Adele received backlash from a few, many of her fans supported the singer as they stated that she was being appropriate by celebrating the festival and appreciating the culture.

One fan tweeted: “Anyone who has ever been to [the] carnival will know that this is how nearly every woman there dresses. Carnival is about celebrating a culture.”

“This pic of #Adele is nothing more than that. Stop trying to cancel everyone when all they are doing is cultural appreciation not appropriation” – The fan added.

Dutch DJ, Oliver Heldens, tweeted: “Reading tweets about Adele, it’s so strange seeing lots of non-Jamaicans trying to cancel Adele, while I see lots of Jamaicans actually praising her 4 showing appreciation to their culture.”

“Maybe we should let people decide 4 themselves whether they think something is ok or not?” – Oliver added.

Though some mistook Adele for being Katy Perry and were outraged that she had been ‘culturally inappropriate’, when realising it was Adele they were not that angry.

One person tweeted: “See how the locals have turned off their double standards & instantly lost their energy & immediately switched their backs when they’ve found out that it was Adele and not Katy Perry?”

“Fake hypocritical wokeness joining selective cancel culture at its finest is extremely tired.” – One added.

Social media has been blowing up about whether this is culturally appropriate or not for Adele to have worn a Jamaican print bikini with Bantu knots, a traditional African hairstyle, with what seems to be half of the people supporting her and the other half being against it.
