Pamela Anderson tweets controversial Halloween photos

Local celebrity Pamela Anderson is under fire after tweeting a pair of photos on Oct. 31 that depict her semi-nude along with a feathered headdress.

The photos were captioned “Happy Halloween.”

The photos drew rapid condemnation both on and offline, with several replies accusing Anderson of insensitivity and of degrading First Nations communities and culture.

Warbonnets are not props or accessories they’re sacred, they’re earned,” read one reply. “Culture isn’t a costume, it’s not disposable, it’s not an aesthetic. This is degrading & insensitive to #MMIW due to hypersexualized imagery. In doning [sic] a headdress you’ve also participated in stolen valor.”

“Please don’t do this, I urge you to look into this issue a bit,” read another. “Trust me, it’s not an ego thing, it’s a respect for indigenous peoples thing.”

The tweets remained on Anderson’s Twitter timeline as of 12:20 p.m. on Saturday. There were no replies or comments made from Anderson’s account in regards to the initial tweets.
