    I apologize if I offended anyone here by mistakenly appropriating your
    culture. It was not my intention. I love sharing things that inspire me. I
    will be more careful next time :) Peace + Love ∞

    Since you’re on I’m re commenting this in hopes that you will read it
    - Just today I was told by someone that I look ugly when wearing a bindi :) ))) but not just that, it HURTS. It hurts to see that things are only
    worthy when a white person approves of it. It hurts to see something so
    precious to us, lose its significance and get thrown around like a rock on
    the ground. It may seem like much to you, but trust me, when you’ve been
    taught to hate yourself, hate your skin, hate your family, hate your
    heritige, hate your culture, hate YOURSELF, it feels much, much worse than
    what I just described. We are told to assimilate into white culture, that
    we have no self worth or place in this world unless we leave our culture
    behind and dress like white people, eat the food they eat, listen to the
    music they listen to, force our parents to only speak English, ans despite
    doing all this, stil get laughed at, mocked at, for being brown.
    Participating in our culture proves our otherness, that we do not deserve
    to be in this country, that we have no self worth and deserve no respect. A
    non-South Asian person wears the bindi, it is generally seen as edgy and
    cute. They are praised for their bold “fashion” choices. But when someone
    like me or my mother wears the bindi out in public, we are either stared
    down with dirty looks, or are verbally or physically abused.You can roam
    around wearing the bindi while I am mocked and ridiculed for it. How is
    that fair? We are trying to protect ourselves, we are trying to protect
    this sacred thing in our lives from becoming an insignificant thing in
    western culture. We have gone through so much SHIT because of racial
    stereotypes that white people have associated with us. The point is, – you
    wearing the bindi is removing the cultural and religious significance of
    the bindi. I – along with millions of other south asians, are annoyed and
    offended that the bindi is only worthy when a non south asian wears it.
    That our culture is only worthy when a non south asian participates. You
    have double standards, and it hurts, its racist, and we are claiming what
    is rightfully ours. Please, PLEASE, respect the feelings of many south
    asians and do not participate in cultural appropriation. You may not mean
    it to be intentional, BUT IT STILL OFFENDS US. You need to respect that,
    you seriously do. You need to educate yourself on this issue and understand
    why we are so offended. Just because you didn’t intentionally mean to
    offend us or just wanted to “express your spirituality” doesn’t mean we
    didn’t get offended, and you have to respect us who got offended and be
    respectful. Please Michelle, I am BEGGING you. Please do some research, I
    hate feeling like crap because I happen to be Indian, and I hate that one
    of my idols is participating in an act that will further ruin my self
    worth. Thank you x

    Lmao are ppl really getting offended by the bindi? Hahahah I bet not one of
    them is Indian. As an Indian, I can tell you that a bindi can be worn by
    ANYBODY on anything ethnic. Wear it on western attire… Nobody cares.
    Though u might get glances in India of u wore them with western wear….
    Not cuz it’s culturally inappropriate, but cuz it’ll seem a bit bizarre. It
    is most definitely NOT just worn by married women. I wear them too when I’m
    all dressed up in sari, salwar kameez, Anarkali suit etc. Get a grip ppl!
    Don’t propagate bs when u yourself don’t know jack shit abt it. Loved the
    video, Michelle and the others :)

    This is culture appreciation and admiration. people shouldn’t get offended
    at this but embrace it! learning and sharing cultures is a part of being
    human! I think it’s beautiful

    as a fan who actually cares, i’m not afraid to criticize the cultural
    appropriation in this video. the use of the “body jewelry” in that way uses
    south asian culture and minimizes it to some gems on a forehead to look
    ~spiritual~ and “trendy”. all i can say is i’m disappointed mish :(

    Amusing how everyone is throwing around the word “racism” and using it
    completely out of context. “Racist” does not apply because you’re upset she
    used body gems in the video. She’s not hating on any cultures, get over
    yourself.

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs, but please refrain
    from attacking others. I want this channel to be a safe place where we can
    all discuss (even debate) without having to resort to name calling and
    bullying. Love + Peace to all of you :)

    A lot of u people babbling about michelle being disrespectful by wearing
    “bindhis” are not even authentic south asian Hindus. I am from Nepal, i am
    a hindu and i think its awesome that people are interested in our culture.
    Most of the stuff are just body gems. Only the one on the middle is a tika.
    So stop being so uptight about everything.

    Christen’s forehead gem was not a bindi. It represented the adornment of
    the third eye (hence why I’m also wearing third eye sunglasses) If I were
    recreating an Indian bridal look, I would totally use a bindi and talk
    about the history behind it. I’ve done this with the Dia de los Muertos
    look and many others. Culture is meant be shared and inspire. Calling this
    cultural appropriation means you are labeling our form of self expression.
    If this video offended you, I apologize, however just know that none of us
    had the intention to offend. We only to inspire all of you to express
    yourself by unleashing your creativity. Love + Peace to all of you.

    a lot of yall are confused.. culture wasnt developed to be “shared by all”.
    its purpose serves to unite a community or a group of people who share a
    common experience within a region or in identity. being in the “human race”
    isnt a good enough reason to be running around in kente cloth with bindis
    on your head calling it self expression when you have no idea what these
    things symbolize or if just for beauty who they are intended to adorn.

    “Peace + Love” wonderful, Michelle, instead of actually realizing that
    Western cultures can take whatever they want from my own culture and it’s
    cute, but when I truly express something that has deep cultural and
    religious meaning, I’m laughed at, I’m shocked you’re just choosing to take
    the white girl hippy method and pretend like you’re spreading so much
    “peace and love.”
