But because this is the Internet, there were also people who thought that the Michelle ponytail was nbd. “Wow I can’t believe Michelle Obama invented having natural hair,” a user sarcastically tweeted. “Lol people really overdo it on Twitter,” another noted.
Aside from the #unimpressed demo, there were also a few that dared to address the elephant in the room. “Boy if Michelle Obama would have ever worn her hair natural it would have been a debacle,” a separate tweeter said. And he’s got a point. Black women should be free to wear their hair however they choose in the workspace, but just look at what happened to Maxine Waters this week. And the U.S. court ruling that makes it legal to discriminate against employees with dreadlocks.
