Alyssa Milano Got Cornrows And The Internet Collectively LOL’d

This week in cultural appropriation, actress Alyssa Milano decided to rock cornrows with extensions.

The Charmed actress showed off her new hairstyle in an Instagram photo on Saturday while in Houston for the Super Bowl.

Yay! Had a great time at the OFF THE FIELD PLAYERS WIVES ASSOCIATION fashion show today. #SB51 #teamtouch

White celebrities wearing this traditionally black hairstyle, though tired, isnt new (see: the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan). But the reaction to Milanos braids is priceless. Just look at the faces of the people in the background of Milanos photo, as noted by The Huffington Posts Philip Lewis:

Some social media users also commented under her Instagram photo. One person said, Girl, who did these braids? Another commenter said, The people in the background are feeling the same as me.

One Twitter user posted a photo of the back of Milanos hair, posted by her stylist, and pointed out why Milano may have gotten such confused looks.

Other folks on Twitter chimed in with their two cents, too.

Milano briefly addressed the braids after Twitter user @rosandyreel told her thatblack cultural styles are not costumes.
