Rita Ora Accused of Cultural Appropriation

The internet is not happy with Rita Ora.

The singer is being accused of “blackfishing” after the internet discovered that Ora is white.

It all started when a user on Twitter posted a picture of Ora with her Albanian parents with the comment like the girl isn’t black in the slightest this is kinda freaking me out.

For those that want to know, Rita was born in Prishtina, Yugoslavia(now Kosovo) to Albanian parents. Her family moved to London when she was a child in 1991.

Rita’s skin tone and hairstyles made many believe that she was black, but she’s never kept her Albanian roots a secret.
