Adele sparked controversy over the weekend after posting a picture of herself wearing a Jamaican flag bikini and her hair in Bantu knots.

The Tottenham- born popstar was accused of cultural appropriation over the hairstyle, which sees the hair twisted into small buns.

She posted the image - taken in her Beverly Hills back garden - to commemorate what would have been the weekend of Notting Hill Carnival, which was cancelled due to coronavirus.

Nick Ferrari asks, was this hairstyle and outfit cultural appropriation?
