Well, for ALL bitches actually — but that’s a trick, because if you’re wearing one of these at a festival at all — then NEWSFLASH: you’re basic.
Glastonbury has become the first UK festival to ban the sale of Native American headdresses since a Change.org petition with just 65 signatures was brought to the attention of festival organiser Emily Eavis who has added the item on the list of products that traders will not be allowed to sell.

“There has long been consensus among indigenous civil rights activists in North America about the wearing of headdresses by non-Natives – that it is an offensive and disrespectful form of cultural appropriation, that it homogenises diverse indigenous peoples, and that it perpetuates damaging, archaic and racist stereotypes.”

Drunk white girls at festivals need a new schtick anyway! I say burn the plastic flower crowns while you’re at it, because they’re also visually offending my eyes. They are culturally appropriating TACKINESS and you don’t qualify as a flower child of freedom if you’re chained to your iPhone and scrolling through your Instagram incessantly.
