The internet was pissed at Emma Roberts on May 4, when the ‘Scream Queens’ actress wore chopsticks in her hair, as she headed to the annual Met Gala. The backlash was so intense that she removed the chopsticks before walking the red carpet. See the pics here!
Penis dresses are okay, but according to people on the internet, chopsticks are so inappropriate for the annual Met Gala. Emma Roberts, 24, was chastised for wearing the accessories in her hair on May 4. Why? In Chinese culture, they represent death.

The theme for this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala was “China: Through the Looking Glass,” so we can understand why the Scream Queens star chose to wear the popular hair accessory. However, after learning the true meaning behind the chopsticks, it may have been a bit insensitive. And internet users didn’t hesitate to let her know!

Not long after Emma read the messages, she took the chopsticks out of her hair. She also deleted the pics of her hair she posted, showing the chopsticks.
