Israel’s Eurovision Winner Netta Accused of “Cultural Appropriation”
Believe it or not, Israel’s latest Eurovision winner, Netta, has been accused of “cultural appropriation.”
Believe it or not, it has not been by the palestinian Arabs or their supporters.

As Deebo pointed out the other day, we actually saw Jewish culture.
Meanwhile, some thought Finland’s performance entailed “cultural appropriation.”
