Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi from the Bravo hit series Shahs Of Sunset is being accused of "cultural appropriation" because of her new hairstyle. She's now rocking African Braids.

GG grew up in Los Angeles and comes from a wealthy, nominally Muslim family originally from Iran. She posted the pics of her new hairstyle on social media yesterday - and some people were outraged.

Many are suggesting that GG is "culturally appropriating" the African hairstyle by wearing it

Cultural appropriation is the adoption of elements of one culture by members of another culture. This can be controversial when members of a dominant culture appropriate from disadvantaged minority cultures.

Check out her new look:

The Shah's of Sunset follows a group of Iranian American friends living in Beverly Hills (and the greater area known as "Tehrangeles"), who are trying to juggle their active social lives and up-and-coming careers while balancing the demands of their families and traditions.

The show is currently filming its 8th season, and GG is an original cast member.

GG confirmed on Friday, January 4 that she is officially divorced from her husband, Shalom Yeroushalmi. "Let me say this loud... HALLELUJAH!!! I am officially divorced!!!!!!!" The Shahs of Sunset pal revealed on Instagram in a lengthy post in which she reflected on her short-lived marriage. E! News also confirmed the divorce has been finalized and court documents confirm that a judge signed off on it all on December. 26.

GG and Shalom got engaged in December 2016. They tied the knot shortly after in a surprise wedding in January 2017. GG announced in March of that year that she had decided to end her marriage to Shalom, and she officially filed for divorce in May 2017.
