Nina Kraviz has responded to criticisms of cultural appropriation.
The DJ recently unveiled a new corn-row hairstyle, which prompted some to accuse her of borrowing from African-American culture.
Recently releasing a track called 'Ghetto Kraviz' didn't help matters, and the debate boiled over a few hours ago.
Firstly, Nina Kraviz attempted to explain her reasoning for choosing the track title:
But then a conversation grew with Discwoman's Frankie, who engaged the DJ in a fiery debate on social media.
Much of the exchange has been deleted, but Nina Kraviz appeared to suggest Frankie was engaging in a form of 'reverse racism':
You think that spreading hate, agression, separation, bullying in our scene and validating reverse racism is OK. I don’t think thats ok. These are not the values that our scene is build on.— nina kraviz (@NinaKraviz) October 28, 2019
I’m absolutely fine with being called a racist by people who have no idea what racism is lmao— frankie (@frankiefatgold) October 28, 2019
The conversation became increasingly heated, before Nina Kraviz deleted the thread, insisting that she is "not a racist". Her final word:
deleted the whole thing as its going crazy and out of proportion. Lets stop this hatred. I am not a racist. And I hope you know and feel that. Peace out.— nina kraviz (@NinaKraviz) October 28, 2019
