Adele's bikini picture has caused quite the stir on social media over the last few days. But despite fans accusing her of cultural appropriation, some celebrities have shown support for the star.
She's even caught the eye of the most unlikely rapper, and people are a little creeped out...
Adele isn't usually one for being on the receiving end of backlash.

The singer hardly posts on social media as it is...

But this time, people aren't pleased with what they saw.
via: Getty ImagesThe singer has landed herself in some serious hot water.
And it's caught the attention of Tom Hank's son Chet...
The controversial posts has caused several fans to unfollow the star.
via: Getty ImagesAnd an influx of angry comments have come pouring in.
If you've been living under a rock, then you might not know who Adele is...
via: Getty ImagesA British born and bred singer with the ability to stun audiences with her powerful voice, Adele brought back a classic ballad vibe to the music industry.
The first of her hits to enter the Billboard Hot 100 was "Chasing Pavements."
Then followed her debut album, 19.
And things only went up from there...After taking a break to focus on her personal life in 2012, Adele returned back to the scene with her sensational hit "Hello."
And that became the song of the year in 2015.
via: Getty ImagesShortly after, she released her next album, 25, which featured iconic songs such as "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)." If you haven't listened to that album, please do yourself a favor and add it to your playlist. You will not be disappointed.
Now, the singer has sold millions of songs worldwide...
via: Getty ImagesHer list of achievements is outstanding, to say the least. Adele has fifteen Grammys as well as an Oscar tucked nicely under her belt and the list is expected to grow as rumors of her next album have sparked fans.
But her successes aren't the only things that fans are talking about...According to the word on the street (also known as Twitter), Adele has undergone one of the most amazing transformations they have ever seen.
The singer was spotted at Drake's birthday bash last October...
I feel like Adele’s new album is going to destroy us, in the best way possible.— 🌻 (@🌻)1571960047.0
She is typically known for her stripped back, casual style of dressing...
Adele has always been gorgeous, but she often spoke out about how she wasn't happy with her body.
A source told The Sun this back in October...
"She has been loving her new workout regime and it really works for her."
Due to her weight loss, her mental health has improved too.
5. Reformer Pilates.
via: Getty ImagesTo strengthen her body for her tour, Adele decided she would try to focus on her core. She mentioned that this was the prime reason she lost most of her weight. Even fifteen to thirty minutes a day can make a big difference.
4. A Sirtfood Diet Plan.
via: Getty ImagesA report from the Daily Mail claimed Adele decided to eat foods with more "sirtuin activators" which helps to regulate how your body processes fat and sugar. However, be warned, these "activators" can actually suppress one's appetite. Personally, I would not recommend. Moving on!
3. Gym, gym, gym.
via: Getty ImagesAdele's exactly like us when it comes to the place where you can get sweaty with a bunch of other people that probably don't want to be there. "I mainly moan. I’m not, like, skipping to the f****** gym. I don’t enjoy it. I do like doing weights. I don’t like looking in the mirror." I feel this on a personal level, Adele.
2. No more tea!
via: Getty ImagesThis one was the killer. Brits really do take their brews seriously. But she knew she had to cut it from her diet as the sugar count was reaching its peak. The sacrifices were worth it, girl. She also cut out alcohol and a bunch of fatty foods.
1. Focusing on health.
via: Getty ImagesFor Adele, being healthy meant that she could be happy, so that's what she focussed on. With anything, you only see results when you're dedicated, so she stuck at it and the results are overwhelming.
Adele is also known for being quiet on Instagram...And since her incredible transformation post, she hasn't really been very active on her social media.
However last Christmas she posted this!
She looks incredible.
via: InstagramIt was captioned, "We both tried to ruin Christmas but then both our hearts grew," in a reference to The Grinch. "Thank you for coming to my party and making us feel like kids, Grinch. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone."
It's safe to say...That Adele is looking better than ever.
Her fans were simply delighted with the post...
via: Getty ImagesOne fan wrote, "YOU LOOK AMAZING GO OFF QUEEN," while a second added, "QUEEEEEN WOW. POP OFF."
But this week, Adele has been put on blast by fans.
via: Getty ImagesThe singer is usually very unproblematic, but it seems that over the weekend, she managed to really rile up fans.
The star wished her fans a happy (what would be) Notting Hill Carnival.
via: Getty ImagesThe popular London event took place online this year amid the pandemic, but it didn't stop Adele getting all dressed up for the occasion.
But, fans didn't like what they saw when she took to Instagram.

Here's the picture in question.
Despite the negative comments from fans, a number of celebrities came forward to support her.

Adele's bikini picture has brought her a lot more attention than she was expecting.

The rapper reached out to Adele after seeing her bikini picture.
via: InstagramChet posted a video of himself dancing to Adele's song Set Fire To The Rain.
Followed by him impersonating a Jamaican accent, telling Adele how good she looked.
via: InstagramBefore the video ended, he told her to slide into his DMs. Yikes.
He captioned the clip: "PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ADELE HIT MY LINE ASAP !!!!!!!!!!!! I NEED TO TALK TO HER ABOUT SOMETHING"
