Justin Bieber is once again trending on Twitter, and it’s not for his music. In case you haven’t gotten the memo, the Canadian singer has recently found himself in hot water after debuting his latest hairstyle: Locs. 

Below, take a look at the entertainer’s new look. 

SMH. This isn’t the first time Bieber was called out for “cultural appropriation.” 

Back in 2016, the 27-year-old debuted a similar hairstyle at the 2016 iHeart Radio Music Awards and was instantly met with criticism and feelings of frustration. According to The Guardian, Bieber reportedly responded to the backlash with the comment, "It's just my hair."
