Daughter of Oklahoma Governor Poses in Headdress
Buzzfeed reports that the daughter of Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin posted pictures of herself in a headdress on her Facebook and Instagram account. The pictures were supposed to be promotional material for her band Pink Pony. Buzzfeed captured some of the comments from Twitter users about the pictures.
Maybe she was confused and heard Indian band instead of Indie band.
After enough backlash, the band issued the usual sorry, not sorry apology.
“Please forgive us if we innocently adorn ourselves in your beautiful things. We do so with the deepest respect.”
Given her mother is Governor of a state with over a dozen tribes, you would think she would know better?
