The 32-year-old multiple Grammy winner had shared a photo on her Instagram page to pay tribute to London’s annual Notting Hill Carnival, which was held online this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In the photo which she captioned “Happy what would be Notting Hill Carnival my beloved London,” Adele was seen wearing Bantu knots and a Jamaican flag bikini, as well as acid-wash leggings and a yellow feathered headdress.

Though Adele seemingly posted the picture with intentions of celebrating West Indian culture, people could not get past her bantu knots, a hairstyle typically worn by Black women trying to protect their strands from excessive damage.
