As you may know, on Halloween, Pamela Anderson took to her platform of choice, Twitter, to share a couple pics that featured her in her costume. However, instead of receiving praise, she sparked controversy since she was wearing a Native American headdress as well as showing a lot of skin.
One photo shows the actress wearing just white underwear while also having white body paint splattered across her chest.
In her hand, she holds a Native headdress, something that really offended a lot of social media users who proceeded to call her out for being racist.
As for the second pic, she is shown with her back to the camera and wearing the headdress.
In the caption, Anderson simply wishes her followers a ‘Happy Halloween.’
Here are a few of the disapproving reactions she got: ‘This is really disappointing and racist Pam, I thought you were better than this.’ / ‘Pamela… please no. Like I genuinely respect you, you have broadly good politics and should really know better.’ / ‘And you wore the feathers of how many dead birds, Pam? Cultural appropriation, racism and hypocrisy all in one photoshoot. I’m sure folks at @peta are mighty proud of their association with you.’ / ‘AND she’s against the seal hunt #racism.’
Later on, despite the backlash, she proceeded to reupload the photos with another caption that reads: ‘Whenever you do something that is not aligned with the yearning or your soul—you create suffering. Life is a process of becoming and a combination of states that we have to go through. Where people fail is they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death. #anaisnin ❤️ #warrior by @laurielynnstark#happyhalloween.’
Furthermore, in response to the criticism regarding her costume, Pamela tweeted, earlier today, a link to an article titled: ‘The Illogic of Cultural Appropriation.’
