In January 2017, Pretty Little Liars actress shared a photo showing off her "baby hairs," a term deeply associated with African American and Latina beauty practices.
The Backlash: On social media people pointed out that baby hairs aren't simply bangs, but wisps of hair found at the edge of the hairline that many women of color slick down with gel as a stylistic or practical choice. Not only did she appropriate the style, but she got it wrong.
The Response: Lucy deleted the tweet and apologized on Twitter, writing: "Sorry guys — I would never mean to offend anyone. Honestly, my bad. I wasn't thinking."
