Whoopi Goldberg Says Wearing Weave Is Cultural Appropriation (Video)

"If we're wearing white lady hair, isn't that appropriation as well?"

Whoopi Goldberg has some interesting opinions when it comes to what is and what is not cultural appropriation.

During Thursday's episode of The View, the hosts discussed the controversy surrounding Kendall Jenner's Pepsi commercial. In short, Goldberg doesn't consider it offensive.

"It's just a crappy commercial. You know, this cultural appropriation stuff is starting to really make me crazy," Goldberg said. "If we're gonna go with cultural appropriation, wear natural hair. If we're wearing white lady hair, isn't that appropriation as well?"

"Listen, now, there are some things where you can say, 'Hey, you need to be more sensitive,' but this ain't one of them. This is a bad commercial that didn't work," Goldberg said later.

Twitter was quick to point out that assimilation isn't the same as cultural appropriation. Take a look.
