Dior Accused of Racism and Cultural Appropriation; When Marlon Brando Discussed Michael Jackson’s Sexuality; Ryan Field Gay Romance Novels

Dior Accused of Racism and Cultural Appropriation

You have to wonder what companies are thinking when they do this. And what are celebrities thinking? 

Fashion brand Dior released a video advertisement Friday morning for its cologne, Sauvage, featuring a Native American dancer in ceremonial garb, including a feathered headdress. The combination of the imagery and the name of the cologne, prompted many on social media to interpret the ad as racist and emblematic of cultural appropriation.

Here’s the link. This was really trending hard on twitter this morning. Apparently, they still do this sort of thing to other marginalized groups, too, and not just LGBTQ people. 

When Marlon Brando Discussed Michael Jackson’s Sexuality

This one seems a little weird all these years later. Why didn't this surface sooner? 

story published in the Los Angeles Times reveals that Marlon Brando discussed his friendship with and the sexuality of Michael Jackson during a police investigation into child molestation charges in 1994.

Here’s the rest. It gets even more peculiar. There are comments, and many opinions at the end. I find it interesting to read what other people have to say about things like this. Interesting.
