Again:  Must not  dress up as Native Americans

This stupid "cultural appropriation" idea again.  A demolition of it here

[Actor] Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky have come under fire for dressing up as Native Americans at a New Year's Eve fancy dress party.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday night, 39-year-old Spanish actress Elsa shared a snap of the couple with family and friends at the event.

Posing behind a 'Wanted' sign, the couple pose in their Native American costumes alongside fellow guests while Luke Hemsworth appears to stand guard in a Sheriff suit and cowboy hat.

Fans were quick to condemn the pair for their choice of attire, with one Instagram user commenting: 'This is so disappointing to see. Native Americans are real, their culture is real.'

Meanwhile, another suggested the couple's costumes were an example of cultural appropriation, writing: 'Can't put into words how wrong this is.' [Do try]

Meanwhile other fans took the liberty to defend the couple on social media, insisting the fancy dress party was just a light-hearted social occasion with no nasty intent. [Which is surely true]

Liberal stupidity is similar to entropy, it only grows.

So wait. Playing Thor in a movie is not "cultural appropriation" but dressing up for a party is?!?

Does someone need to remind these people to breathe? Maybe it's time to stop the reminders and let nature take its course. (I know. Not very nice. But I am very, very sick of the willful stupidity.)

Oh "Yoda", you are so (un)funny and so (un)original with this "hilarious" take on the StarWars/Irish sentence style - not just once here but too many times - so you are!
