Lately, she tweeted about cultural appropriation. For the ignorant, it is when a person pertaining to a selective culture attempts to embrace another culture or cultural status.
“Do you think white girl’s arms are sore from reaching to the back of their family tree to justify whatever culture they’re about to appropriate? ‘My great-great-grandmother’s aunt was Arab’ first of all, you’re white,” Mia wrote in her tweet on Wednesday. While many encouraged her attitude, others trolled her. And in both situations, Mia appeared to be possessing a great time replying to the tweets.
One Twitter user named Shubham Singh commented, “How proud your ancestors would be from you” – obviously in a mocking tone. In a befitting response, Mia added a screenshot of a bank transaction that reveals that she donated $5,000 to her homeland, Lebanon’s Red Cross organization. “You meant this backhandedly, but brb I’m gonna go donate some more money to my homeland’s Red Cross organization, maybe my ancestors will rest a little better now,” she wrote in reply.
