Latest culprit mixed up in cultural appropriation drama? Jessica Lange.
In a recent shoot she did with New York magazine, Lange dressed up as "eight legendary artists, rebels and trailblazers" that she admires, one of them being Frida Kahlo. Other women that Lange played tribute to include Gloria Steinem, Georgia O'Keeffe, Janis Joplin and more.
While many women praised the project as a whole, some Latinxs viewed Lange's Frida piece as cultural appropriation. See what folks had to say down below.

And now Jessica Lange is dressing up like Frida Kahlo? Nah, I'm done. Time to go to bed.

Nope, nope, nope. I love Lange and she kills it as 7 of the women, but NOPE to that Frida Kahlo interpretation. https://t.co/QFW4X73ot2
