Adele Flaunts Weight-Loss Transformation in Controversial Bikini Shot
- September 07, 2020
Adele posted a bikini selfie as an homage to the canceled Notting Hill Carnival — but online reaction was at least as much outrage over what some said was cultural appropriation as it was praise for her looks.
The festival is a celebration of Caribbean culture, so Adele — looking slim — wore a Jamaican-flag string bikini, her hair in Bantu knots.
“Happy what would be Notting Hill Carnival my beloved London,” she wrote, with some fans pouring on the praise for her trim figure and others taking pot shots at her “problematic” fashion choices.

Hours after the negative comments began to flow, Adele had yet to address the controversy — or to delete the image!
