But don’t worry! According to his latest Instagram caption, Justin Bieber knows the cornrows make him look bad. Perhaps he’s aware that it’s a little too late to be putting together a RiFF RAFF Halloween costume; perhaps he’s learned from other celebrities before him, as actress Amandla Stenberg says, that white people appropriating cornrows is not always a good look. Either way, he promises to have them off by tomorrow—though by then it might be too late to say sorry.
