Adam Lambert Debates Cultural AppropriationBy: Ellisha Rader Mannering - August 11, 2014
Cultural appropriation is a big deal to some people, but Adam Lambert says that it shouldn’t be.
Almost everyone is guilty of copying the elements or symbols of a culture without being a part of that culture.
Most people do it without thinking twice and do not mean anything negative or disrespectful by it.
Some cultures have complained of being disrespected by the use of their cultural elements and claim that there is a fine line between imitation and stereotyping.
Adam Lambert recently shared his feelings about the topic on twitter and started a debate among his followers.
Some of his followers agreed with him, but others felt that he was not being sensitive enough about the issue.
What do you think of Lambert’s opinion on the matter?
