Adele is getting hot.

The 32-year-old singer-songwriter took to Instagram on Sunday to pay tribute to the Notting Hill Carnival, which was all but canceled this year due to the spread of the coronavirus.

The carnival is meant to celebrate Caribbean culture and has been taking place since 1966, according to the BBC. This year, the experience was virtual.

“Happy what would be Notting Hill Carnival, my beloved London 🇬🇧🇯🇲” Adele wrote in the photo caption.

In the photo, the “Hello” singer donned a bikini top adorned with the Jamaican flag and sported her hair in Bantu knots, a traditional African hairstyle.

The British pop star has been accused of cultural appropriation after donning the look.

“Dear Whites, please be yourselves and stop this for good with cultural appropriation,” someone commented, per People. “Adele the Bantu knots were not needed. The Jamaican flag bikini top was not necessary… Please stop it. ”

Another said that “black women are discriminated against because they wear cultural hairstyles like Bantu knots and locs, but whites are not, it is not fair and that is why people are angry ”.

There were, however, a handful of supporters.

“I’m from the Caribbean and that’s why we have festivals / carnivals,” one said. “For others to appreciate and celebrate our culture. Nothing inappropriate here. ”

“WE LOVE TO SEE OUR FLAG EVERYWHERE !!!! Another insisted. “It made me smile. It shows the impact of my little island on the whole world. How influential we really are. ”
