So, it seems this has offended some of you which I had no intention of doing! I figured I'd share where I'm coming from. 1. I have a DIY pom-pom hat that I wear year round and people love it -- including some of you guys, that's why I made this video. I thought it would be fun for Cinco de Mayo as it is inspired by & intended as a modern, embellished take on the Sombrero, present in both Mexican & Spanish cultures -- utilizing hats currently sold in popular culture. 2. As a native Californian, I've been around Mexican American culture all my life. I love it, have many Mexican friends, and not that it's anyone's business, politically I very much support the equal rights & fair treatment of all people -- including Hispanic Americans. 3. Although Christina is blonde, she is half Mexican and we both saw this as fun, festive, & light hearted.
That said, I think it's very important to respect all cultures & freedom of speech -- ESPECIALLY at this time in the world. I'm grateful to each of you for watching and feeling free enough to comment with your point of view!
