Shraddha Kapoor has landed in a mess, courtesy her picture in the recently released Dabboo Ratnani’s calendar. The actress is seen posing in a warbonnet, which is considered a part of indigenous traditional arts and also a sacred objects, which can be worn only by people who have earned it.

Evidently, neither Dabboo nor Shraddha realised this and the photo shoot was conceptualised probably ignoring the on-going controversy in the West, where Native Americans are fighting to highlight the ongoing cultural genocide, the trend of musicians and festival-goers wearing warbonnets. Reportedly, because of their efforts, wearing a warbonnet as a costume has been banned too. This was noticed by fashion critic, Diet Sabya, who is in news of late, courtesy they ripping apart Bollywood celebs and their ignorant fashion goof-ups. Last victim was Divyanka Tripathi, who lashed out and how at being pinpointed by the fashion critic.

Coming to Shraddha, here’s what Diet Sabya wrote, “ART OR CULTURAL APPROPRIATION? According to our basic birthright source, Wikipedia, the wearing & displaying of such headdresses, and other ‘indigenous traditional arts and sacred objects’ by those who have not earned them — especially by non-Natives as fashion or costume — is considered extremely offensive by traditional Native people. The ‘controversy’ is part of a wider effort by Native American activists to highlight the ongoing cultural genocide against indigenous peoples (especially in the United States and Canada). The stupid trend of musicians and festival-goers wearing warbonnets across festivals has led to criticism by Native Americans, apologies by non-Natives, and the banning of headdresses as costumes by several big-league music festivals. We thought this was common knowledge. Yet, we are here, talking about it being appropriated by a celebrity calendar. @shraddhakapoor by @dabbooratnani for #dabbooratnanicalendar”

In no time, trolls also pointed this out and started appreciating the famous social media handle for taking notice and bringing it out on public domain. Here are a few comments by these trolls:
Considering, celebrities have started replying to Diet Sabya and their posts slamming these celebs, let’s wait and watch if Shraddha follows suit or remains mum on the matter.
