Adele broke her mini Instagram hiatus by sharing a photo of herself wearing a Jamaican flag bikini top and a new hairstyle. The singer’s hair was intricately twisted in a style similar to Bantu knots, adorned with bright yellow feathers behind her head.
“Happy what would be Notting Hill Carnival my beloved London, she captioned it
The photo has however sparked a social media backlash for cultural appropriation and a lot of funny memes have followed.
