Coco Austin braided her long blonde hair into cornrows and decided to name the ‘do the “Coco Swoop.”

Wrong move Coco.

Then she got “swooped” by the internet for “cultural appropriation” over her new style.

Social media went haywire for her “renaming” a style that has been a part of Black culture for generations, and then went in on Ice T for speaking out at those who pointed out the issue.

Coco posted a video to social media addressing the backlash.

You buying her explanation?

But is it any different from black people straightening their hair or wearing blonde hair?

Could we be accused of “cultural appropriation” as well?

You be the judge?
