It appears the whole “cultural appropriation” meme has finally peaked.
From Fox News:
When Keziah Daum sported a traditional, Chinese cheongsam dress to her senior prom in Utah last month, she likely never intended her photos to go viral or be slammed as a “closet racist” over accusations of cultural appropriation. But days later, the 18-year-old began winning praise from an unexpected source — Chinese audiences and social media users.

“Very elegant and beautiful! Really don’t understand the people who are against her, they are wrong!” a supporter chimed in of the cheongsam, otherwise known as a qiapo. “I suggest the Chinese government, state television or fashion company invite her to China to display her cheongsam!”
“It is not cultural theft. It is cultural appreciation and cultural respect,” another agreed.
This is the idiot we have to thank for this reversal:
My culture is NOT your goddamn prom dress. https://t.co/vhkNOPevKD

He’s still whining about it on Twitter. He just retweeted this on Thursday:
Just some final thoughts before I move on from this. The media’s lack of awareness in the #promdress story bothers me. Bottom line is Asian American kids on Twitter saw one photo which evoked memories of numerous others. @nytimes @washingtonpost @SCMP_News (1/3) pic.twitter.com/MwHnGZuObC

It’s hilarious watching Asian SJWs trying to culturally appropriate the “cultural appropriation” meme from African-Americans. Is he going to complain about being “profiled” by police next?
