Look! A friendly reminder from a BuzzFeed type who wants to shame people for celebrating a certain holiday if they’re not from the country that originally celebrates that holiday.
We can’t even make this crap up.
friendly reminder that you don't get to celebrate lunar new year unless you're literally from a country that does or if you are invited by someone who is from a country that does

BuzzFeed is gonna BuzzFeed but COME ON.
Would someone please tell Kassy that celebrating a holiday isn’t cultural appropriation?
This is the kind of garbage that has taken true cultural appreciation and pretended Iike it is appropriation. You aren't taking anything from a culture by celebrating the holidays. https://t.co/1ld3vEZTlV

Aww, thanks for telling her, and true story.
Meanwhile, we have the situation in Virginia where Northam still hasn’t resigned for his blackface but hey, let’s make things even dumber by whining about people celebrating the Lunar New Year.
friendly reminder that if you go around telling other people what they can and can't do you're a fascist https://t.co/LODUWTcrIe

C’mon man, it’s for our own good.
Friendly reminder that freedom of expression allows us to celebrate whatever the hell we want.

Hey, as long as we’re keeping it friendly.

But why? How does it harm you or anyone else if people want to celebrate it?

Because dude, this virtue isn’t going to signal itself.
Wait, wait, wait- are you writing this in English? I object to your cultural appropriation of Western languages.

This is going well, BuzzFeed.
Friendly reminder: segregation is bad. Please do not promote it.

Clever way of telling her to learn to code without tweeting it.
I hope you possess the required cultural permission slips every time you eat a slice of pizza, drink Scotch, drive a German car, or pull on a pair of Levi’s,

As someone who is from a country who celebrates Lunar New Year, i humblely invite everyone ever to be allowed to celebrate it.

Sounds good to us!
Mmmm, this is developing into the ratio you deserve.
