To put it into perspective, it's worse than the time David Beckham got cornrows. And that's saying something.
Bieber, who pretty much confirmed his relationship status with Hailey Baldwin thanks to this kissy face photo, posted the below to his Instagram with the following explanation: "Hailey made me get corn rows like an absolute douche bag, these will be off tomorrow trust me Danny."
Surprisingly, Twitter had an opinion on the matter.
Just when we were all starting to like Justin Bieber he goes and gets corn rows.

As for cultural appropriation; you may recall Justin Bieber went out of his way to defend Kylie Jenner when she got corn rows back in July.
Have you ever been tempted to get braids while on holidays? Or did Monica turn you off...
