Harry Styles Indian Instagram RACIST?

harry-styles-indian-racistsMany people are furious on Twitter and Instagram that Harry Styles‘ Native American Instagram icon is racist. Do YOU think Indian Harry is racist? In related news, Kendall Jenner wants Harry back! Source told HEAT:

‘Harry went to the Kardashian home in Calabasas on 25 February, just before Kendall left for Paris Fashion Week. He went to a Kodaline gig in LA and kept checking his watch at the after-party, saying that he needed to leave soon.

He’d worked out that, with the LA traffic, he needed at least 40 minutes and didn’t want to be late. And he got a takeaway from Kendall’s favourite diner, Swingers. Harry keeps texting asking her to meet up. He says they need to talk some more. They’re not back together, but it seems like Harry wants her back. He’s the world’s worst breaker-upper.

As soon as Harry splits with a girl, the next day he’ll tell them he feels sad without them, that he misses them and that he feels like he made a mistake. And Kendall’s playing hard to get, so he’s fighting even harder.’

UPDATE: Harry changed Instagram photo because of racism complaints!

    Do people outside of the US really delve into Native American history? If not, I give him that. I doubt he was deliberately trying to be racist, but I understand how it’s insensitive.

      I didn’t learn much about american history until I came to america (and my dads american haha). but when i was younger in Australia we learned about aboriginals (which are black people who were the first ones in our country.)

      so i would assume he only learned about England. In Australian high schools you can take an american history class i believe, but its not mandatory.

      • Hello

        I was schooled in England and we learnt British, American, European, South African and Australian history (mandatory). Then at uni I can take Latin American courses.. etc etc.

          I left oz for america in elementary school so im not positive in what they learn in upper levels,all i know is what my cousins and friends tell me.

          i know there is an european course but i dont know if its mandatory there or not

        That’s what I figured. In the US, we have World History, and we just touch upon past events of different countries, and the only elective History classes are, like, World Religions and African American history (which somewhat talks about Africa due to the slavery). I’ve known about the Aboriginals for awhile, but we’ve never learned about them in school :(
        I mean, if you don’t know what you’re doing is offensive, it’s okay; you learn, but it’s another story if you do.

        • Queen Amanda Bynes

          I go to a US high school and we take civics, economics , am. gov and world history.There isn’t an option at my school to learn about other countries. But my cousins who still live in Australia say they can choose to study about other countries if they want in upper levels.
          But yeah I doubt harry knew about all the stuff about native americans , he only probably knows what you see in movies and tv.

  • Username does not exist.

    He IS racist. There was an instagram video of a dark skinned fan meeting him and Jimmy Carr, after she left Jimmy said ‘she was so dark’ to which Harry replied ‘she was too dark she looked dirty’ and her mother was filming it & put it on IG. It’s really sad that he’d get away with shit like that because he’s a white rich “pretty” boy bander.
    Sad world

    • Lucy smith

      What video? Can you please post the link?

    • lalala

      complete bullshit. ya his picture was wrong (the fact that he was probably ignorant about what he was doing doesn’t excuse the behavior) but it doesn’t actually make him a racist person. when people called him out on it he changed his picture showing he understands he fucked up and offended people and did not do so intentionally. seriously link this fan meeting that no one has ever heard about before now.

    • Queen Amanda Bynes

      if it is true this is fucked up.

      But still idk if it would make him racist, just ignorant.

    • A

      this is truly heartbreaking to read’ if it’s true’ can you imagine walking up to the person you have been dreaming of meeting and them for them say ‘she’s too dark, she looks dirty’. Wow

    • KeepSwimming

      I’ve seen that, I follow that person on Tumblr (http://puyolscarles.tumblr.com/ ) It’s really sad & that’s why I really don’t like this kid.

      Hope their band fades away because honestly no one even cares if they’re doing wrong, as long as they sing about how beautiful girls are (which is another topic that is really f*cked up) people are gonna love them. Sad world indeed.

    • Annie

      Omg he did?! do you have a link to the vid??

    • Marina And My Diamonds

      My stomach turned reading this – the same Harry that told a fan to stop because they said the N word in front of him. Video link.

    • Anna

      Complete BS! Just because you read that doesn’t make it true, everyone loves making Harry look bad. Harry is a sweetheart and the fact that people constantly try to ruin him is very messed up. Why can’t you leave him alone?

  • http://zarriall-zombies.tumblr.com FuckHarry

    I don’t think he ment this in a racist or disrespectful way but I’m just being biased cause I love the kid either way it was dumb and I knew from the minute I saw the pic he was going to get hate and called a racist.

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    Did he have a racist caption? Like idg why it’s racist. Have you seen a Lana Del Rey music video? lmfao… If you’re offended by this, you probably shouldn’t ever goto Coachella. Hipster hoes be wearing bindis and headdresses up the wazooo

  • Cici

    I don’t see the issue. He’s not the only one to play dress up, damn.

  • A

    I wouldn’t be saying racist but more offensive to some native Americans because ‘Warriors earned a feather each time he did something the tribe felt was a brave act’ and ‘ we see the Native American headdress as symbol of strength and bravery.’

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    I dont think this is wrong, hes just messing around and trying to take a funny picture that is all

  • c

    Why this is racist? Can someone explain

  • Andie Young

    What’s the racist story from? What’s the history that people put on the accessories is considered as racist? The girl in magazine front page also regarded as racist.
    I truly don’t understand…

  • BangBang

    I assume that most of us don’t belong to that particular group, therefore we will never fully understand why they see this as something offensive.

  • Tessa

    jesus how sensitive are people these days?? I bet it weren’t even native americans that got “offended” but white ass people pretending to be educated and shit. give him a break. in what way is this racist? racist is someone that bashes and insults a culture, he is rather cherishing indians by putting it on. geez.

  • Sophie

    The most ignorant thing about the whole matter, is to call him a racist, for putting on a culturel headpeace. Fair enough; if you are insulted by his actions, but this does in NO way make him a racist! “Racist” is a very serious word. Don’t throw it around so easily – especially if you don’t understand the meaning and consequences of the word!

  • Duckyhoward15

    I think he thought it looked cute since he acts like a jewish all day long and thinks its cute and cool but this time I guess it was wrong , atleast he deleted it unlike Perrie
