Social media is giving us yet another laugh with this hilarious meme of Rihanna and the unfortunate moment her Ocean’s Eight co-star Sarah Paulson toyed with her faux locks.
Since hitting the internets on Saturday (Dec. 3), the photo has taken on a life of its own, with witty takes cultural appropriation and the ignorant aspects mainstream media has imposed on black hairstyles. The ladies were filming at the Church Ave. train stop when a photo was snapped of Paulson touching Rih’s hair. While it could’ve been taken out of context, the singer’s stance and hand gestures say it all.

As Solange said it best, “don’t touch my hair.”
