Slammed! Molly-Mae Hague, 20, has been slammed on Instagram for cultural appropriation as she posted a snap of herself dressed as Egyptian ruler Cleopatra for Halloween on Friday night
After Molly-Mae, who is not Egyptian, shared a photograph of herself in her Cleopatra costume, fans were quick to berate her, labelling her costume as 'cultural appropriation'.
According to The Cambridge Dictionary, cultural appropriation is 'the act of taking or using things from a culture that is not own, without showing that you understand or respect this culture.'
One fan wrote: 'This is cultural appropriation,' with another adding: 'Molly please don't culturally appropriate. You are not Egyptian.'
'My culture is not your Halloween costume,' slammed someone else, as another follower wrote: 'Cultural appropriation for Halloween at its finest.'
