A photo posted by Vanessa Hudgens (@vanessahudgens) on

Only hours after Justin Timberlake was accused of appropriating black culture, Vanessa Hudgens has been accused of appropriating Native American culture.

The High School Musical alum showed off her naturally curly locks and accessories in a shoot, but fans are upset about one look in particular. In one photo, Hudgens wears a dreamcatcher in her hair, but fans took to the comments to express how upset they are because they believe she's appropriating Native American culture.

"Why are you like this???" one user commented. "You constantly go out of your way to disrespect cultures to look ~boho. It's rude as f*ck. Don't put dreamcatchers in your hair! That you have to constantly be told not to do this and dragged means you are not listening and it's frustrating af!!"

Another person responded to the remark, writing, "PREACH. I love her and all but it's culture not costume or whatever."

"Why do you have a dreamcatcher in your hair," asked another, who included frown face emojis.

Although the photo upset many of her followers, others commented how beautiful she looked and how jealous they were of her hair. Hudgens has experience backlash from her festival fashion choices before, especially when Coachella rolls around. In April 2014, the Grease: Live! star shared a photo that showed dust lines from her bindi.

"Do you even know the significance of a bindi in Hinduism/ Indian Culture?" one user asked.

"If you stopped with the cultural appropriation it would be all fine," wrote another.

One more got a little more aggressive, writing, "f--k you Vanessa Hudgens for cultural appropriation." For every critical comment, however, there was one defending her. Suffice it to say, the debate is still alive and only getting more passionate.
