The issue of cultural appropriation has become more and more apparent over the years.

And Pamela Anderson faced the heat.
via: Getty ImagesAnd the 52-year-old star was accused of said appropriation in a Twitter post.
To mark Halloween, the model posted a throwback Twitter post of a shoot from 2015.

The photographs have a cultural meaning...
An art form?
via: Getty ImagesPamela quoted French-Cuban American diarist Anaïs Nin, suggesting that she had moved on in the 4 years since the images were taken. "Whenever you do something that is not aligned with the yearning or your soul— you create suffering," she wrote. "Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death."
But fans were quick to point out the insensitivity of the photographs...
via: Getty ImagesMany claimed that they appropriated indigenous cultures, and they also put her on blast for the feathered headdress, claiming that it went against her animal rights activism.
People of a Native origin were particularly annoyed.
via: TwitterThey responded with comments such as: "We're a culture, not a costume," and "This is really disappointing & racist Pam, I thought you were better than this."
The comments continued...
Some fans were there to stick up for Pamela, however...
via: Getty Images"Good lord people relax she was just dressing up for Halloween," one user wrote, whilst another said: "It's a costume!! She's not murdering anyone!"
Pamela ignored the majority of the comments...
Pamela is strongly against any form of animal cruelty.

And now there's controversy again!
It didn't last very long.
It was a mutual decision.
Anderson has spoken out.Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Anderson explained:
I have been moved by the warm reception to Jon and my union.
We would be very grateful for your support as we take some time apart to re-evaluate what we want from life and from one another. Life is a journey and love is a process.
With that universal truth in mind, we have mutually decided to put off the formalisation of our marriage certificate and put our faith in the process. Thank you for respecting our privacy.
