Everyone has seemed to chime in with their opinion, including Whoopi Goldberg who had a few words for those critics who accused the commercial of cultural appropriation.

On a recent episode of ABC’s The View, the topic turned to the Pepsi ad that has all of America talking and co-host Whoopi Goldberg wasted no time giving her opinion on claims that the commercial was partially a failure because of its cultural appropriation.
While Goldberg agrees that it was an all-around bad commercial that just failed to hit its intended mark, she disagrees with the accusations that it was filled with cultural appropriation. She states that if black women want to claim cultural appropriation then all of them should be wearing their natural hair and not “white lady hair.”
As expected, the comment made the rounds on social media and many were quick to take issue with Goldberg’s comments, citing her previous controversial statements regarding race in the past. She has never been one to back down, so don’t expect her to sugar coat her comments on the issue any time soon.
What do you think Beauties? Do you agree with Goldberg’s opinion?
