TKC QUESTION: IS HYVEE COMMITTING CULTURAL APPROPRIATION BY WAY OF KANSAS CITY CHIEFS QB PATRICK MAHOMES WIG HEADBAND?!?!
Call it a curly hair Kansas City controversy.
First the background . . .
Fox4: Mahomes wig headbands go on sale at KC area Hy-Vee stores
The Chiefs quarterback helped design new headband wig sets with Ultimate Athletic of Parkville.
They feature a nylon headband with Mahomes' brown and blonde highlighted curls. They're sure to look great in the stands at Arrowhead or home on the couch watching the game with friends.
Already, we're getting a few negative notes on the hairpiece:
"TKC, did you see this? Looks kind of racist to me. I guess he helped design it but it seems like only the same kind of horrible person who would wear a Native-American headdress to the game would participate in this kind of dress-up. Insulting."
And so, while locals suffer the last pre-season game of 2019 we ask . . .
WILL YOU WEAR THE MAHOMES HEADBAND OR IS IT A SKETCHY PROMOTION?!?!
You decide . . .
