Some TikTok users have accused the model and wife of singer Justin Bieber of appropriating the makeup routine

Hailey Bieber’s viral TikTok post about her recent lip routine is facing some backlash and accusations of “cultural appropriation”

Jillian Hernandez, a professor at University of Florida’s Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies Research, told “Good Morning America”

that her research has focused on the hyper-sexualization of working-class Black and Latina girls’ aesthetics.

“African American and Latina women get denigrated for the ways that they present their body, the way they wear their hair,”

Hernandez said. “People use words like ghetto or ratchet.” Sandra E. Garcia, a New York Times style reporter, said Bieber’s TikTok post is an example of a familiar double standard.

Hernandez described the co-opting of trends as an act of “stylistic or aesthetic gentrification,” which she said can be traced as far as the 19th century when Cubist artist Pablo Picasso .

who is Spanish, took inspiration from traditional African art. “The reason he innovated modern art was because he was looking at African masks,” Hernandez said. “So much Western innovation stems from colonialism. And that’s where we get this kind of cultural appropriation.”

Hailey Bieber has not responded to ABC News’ request for comment.

Bieber’s post is not the first to generate accusations of cultural appropriation on TikTok.

For example, the TikTok “clean girl aesthetic” — a common style among Black and Latina girls characterized by gold hoop earrings, a low, slicked back bun, and outerwear — has drawn criticism for centering thin white women as both the image and inventors of the look.

Accusations of cultural appropriation have also touched other aspects of culture. Some online have criticized re-labeling “agua fresca” — a drink of Mexican origin made with puréed fruit, water, and sugar — as spa water, or ceviche — a South American seafood dish typically made with raw fish — as “cowboy caviar” on TikTok.

Garcia stated, “I realise it may seem as unimportant as lip gloss and lip line, but this is a systematic issue. “The women that are losing are still Black and Latina in the end. They experience some identity loss. They become worthless.”

Hernandez said that Bieber’s use of the lip look isn’t the real problem in the end.

People can experiment with body aesthetics and other things that inspire them that they observe in different cultures, she declared. “For me, it’s more important to just give that credit,”

The manner in which young people, in particular, are embracing platforms like TikTok, for instance, to express their experiences and history. I sincerely hope that these magazines serve as forums for showcasing Black and Latinx beauty influencers and innovators.

‘Cultural appropriation’ claims have been made against Hailey Bieber for her ‘brownie glazed lips’ appearance.
