Adele's Carnival Look Garners Harsh Criticism And Roasty Memes

The last time we were talking about Adele was after she revealed photos of her dramatic weight loss back in May. The internet is yet again talking about her appearance, except this time it's in a far less favorable light. The award-winning singer-songwriter is facing some serious internet criticism after donning Bantu knots for Notting Hill's Carnival. The occasion is a celebration of Caribbean culture, and many felt that Adele's use of the hairstyle was more cultural appropriation than appreciation. As one can imagine, Twitter users were very quick to jump on the look, to admonish the singer, defend her, and (most humorously) meme the shit out of her. While we've included some of the more serious takes in this gallery, we've chosen instead to focus on the humor. Cultural appropriation isn't funny, but mocking people who are guilty of it? Bring it on.

Adele Reveals Dramatic Weight Loss And Obviously Every Twitter User Has A Take

It's no secret that there's an unhealthy preoccupation with the physical form where showbiz is concerned. Tabloids seem to thrive on sharing poorly-lit photos of cellulite-dappled thighs and speculate pregnancy when a star might just be bloated or is photographed at an awkward angle. Award-winning singer-songwriter Adele has dealt with this for much of her career. After making a return to Instagram to thank first responders and essential workers for their help during the crisis, most people could only focus on her dramatic weight loss. 

As usual, everyone on Twitter had something to say about the matter. Adele's transformation has women decrying the media's focus on the body, people reminding the world of the star's talents and accomplishments, and then, of course, there are the comedians. We've included a handful here, but if you're looking for more, head over to Twitter. Frankly, we could care less about Adele's weight. We just hope she's happy and keeps pumping out that sweet, sweet music.
