Just when I thought I couldn't loathe David Guetta any more than I currently do…
In case you're unfamiliar with this guy, let me fill you in. Guetta is a French DJ and producer who has worked with pop stars like Lady Gaga, Rhianna and has produced various pop songs which somehow rise to the top of the dance charts. This music is not my cup of tea, but the kids these days like it. Shrug. Anyway, Guetta has a series of parties at Pacha nightclub in Ibiza, Spain called “F*** Me I'm Famous”. Classy right? Well if the music didn't offend you, check out how he recently promoted his club night. Cultural Appropriation!
So once again we have scantily-clad girls in cheap knock-off headdresses. Oh and let's not forget that all Native Americans are the same and mix together dreamcatchers, Pacific Northwest imagery, “buckskin” bikinis and turquoise jewelry.
And it's not just Natives he offended, many animal activists are pissed at him too. The night of the party they brought a horse to the club.
I'm over here seriously shaking my head at all of this. Many people have voiced their outrage on YouTube and Facebook pages. Feel free to chime in and let's hope they learn their lesson this time. We're not okay with appropriation!
