In today’s “White People Appropriate The Darndest Things” news, Mane Addicts, a white style blog, attempted to rename Bantu Knots and credit them to Marc Jacobs.
But neither Twitter or Marc Jacobs were having it:
ICYMI: no, we didn't invent nor claim to invent Bantu Knots or any other hairstyle. Check the source. We ❤️ you guys. pic.twitter.com/63Dh8aFS1g

Check back next week when Mane Addicts come up with a new name for “afro”. I’m just at the point where I can’t even feign amazement at the things some white people do nowadays. White people just gonna white. And that’s all there is to it.
