Bruno Mars Gets Accused of Cultural Appropriation…Again

Hey, y’all.  As I’m sure you all know by now, a YouTube channel known as The Grapevine recently released a video discussing the topic of whether or not Bruno Mars is guilty of cultural appropriation.  Some of the panelists believed he was, some believed he wasn’t, and one of them mentioned that if Bruno died tomorrow, she’d be so ecstatic she’d bake a cake (if you know this woman’s name, you know it’s extremely ironic that she can accuse anyone of cultural appropriation).

Bruno - Really

I know you all are probably wondering what took me so long to write about this topic.  To be honest, when I found out that Bruno was accused of cultural appropriation for the umpteenth time, I became terrified, and I honestly believed it was Groundhog Day.  However, I soon realized that I wasn’t reliving the same day over and over again a la Bill Murray, and given how heavily the subject weighed on me, I decided to get off my rump and write about it.  The article itself is on ViralHare, and here’s the link:

Why Is Bruno Mars Being Attacked For Cultural Appropriation?

Enjoy!  Bye!

I think this will end up being the official GIF for this damn topic…

Then again, considering that Bruno usually pays his haters and detractors dust, this GIF could very well be the official “appropriating black culture accusation” GIF for him…

So what do y’all think about the whole Bruno Mars cultural appropriation situation (hey, that rhymes!)?  Do you think he really is appropriating black culture, or do think he’s just performing the music that he loves and simply appreciating black culture?  Let me know in the comment section (or at the ViralHare website)!
