TWISTED: Social Justice Warrior Targets Musician Bruno Mars For Cultural Appropriation

What in the world is “cultural appropriation” and why is Bruno Mars under fire for it? The social justice warriors are never on a break. Always making up new and ridiculous attacks on anyone who is not a liberal.

This time they are targeting Bruno Mars.

Hello Beautiful reported this nonsense:

One Twitter user found out what happens when you come for Bruno Mars and his music.

Plenty of people love Bruno’s music, and his sound has certainly evolved from his first album to his current one. He’s gone from crooner pop to funk, and it’s all been good.

… A woman named Jenn M. Jackson, who has written for The Root and The Washington Post, went on Twitter to let it be known that she thinks Bruno’s sound is nothing more than cultural appropriation. Admittedly, Bruno’s latest album sounds like Saturday at the beauty shop. However, Jenn is not happy with how he’s risen to fame.

Heatstreet added this:

Mars has been very honest about the debt he owes to music rooted in black culture, once saying: “Black people created it all. Being Puerto Rican, even salsa music stems back to the Motherland [Africa]. So, in my world, black music means everything. It’s what gives America its swag.”

So not someone who can easily be accused of culturally appropriating black African-American music, right?

Not so fast. Watching Mars perform “Perm” at the BET (Black Entertainment Television Awards) on Sunday night, Jenn M. Jackson, an activist and writer who has penned a few pieces for the Washington Post, felt very triggered indeed.

“Bruno Mars does not identify as Black, ” she tweeted. “He is a non-Black person of color (POC) who has recently decided that singing Funk music is economically productive.”

If “cultural appropriation” is really a thing, who will the left target for this next?
