In this day and age, you’d think whitewashing content from cultures that aren’t or don’t match yours would be a thing of the past. But Tieghan Gerhard has once again proved that sometimes content creators will stop at nothing for means of content even if it offends others.

Unfortunately for many the blogger doesn’t seem to care and has since provided a half-done apology to her social media following according to Buzzfeed News.
