Adele has left the internet divided once again. On Sunday August 30, the British pop star shared an Instagram post in tribute to Notting Hill Carnival, an annual event celebrating Caribbean and Black communities in the United Kingdom.

In the photo, presumably taken at last year’s celebration, Adele wore a Jamaican flag bikini top, black and white tye-dye leggings, yellow wings and Bantu knots, a traditional African hairstyle.

 

“Happy what would be Notting Hill Carnival my beloved London 🇬🇧🇯🇲,” she captioned the post for Carnival, which is being celebrated virtually this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Despite Adele’s good intentions, people across social media took issue with the star’s appearance in the picture. With some accusing her of cultural appropriation and taking offense with Adele’s Jamaican bikini top, many fans have since come to Adele’s defense.
