Harry Styles changed his Twitter and Instagram icons last night and suddenly came under fire as being a racist.

Harry swapped out his existing pic with one of him sneering while wearing a massive Native American headdress. Suddenly, screams of racism filled the Twitterverse and, before you know it, he had replaced the pic with something less offensive. Unless you don't like plaid or something.

Fan account @1Dneews tweeted about Harry's photo choice, writing: "cultural appropriation is not nice, regardless of context or intent. let's leave it at that."

She later added, "i don't think he was trying to be hurtful or offensive. i'm just trying to point out the bigger issue, because people are."

And following some fan fighting, @1Dneews clarified their position, writing: "Don't think harry is a bad person. i think there's underlying inequality all around the world in current times. i know that i even perpetuate it myself. that's why it's even more important to recognize our mistakes and to act on them."

She continued, "I don't think he was trying to be hurtful or offensive. I'm just trying to point out the bigger issue, because people are trying to downplay it to protect him. I love harry and i'm sure he's not 'racist' but we shouldn't turn a blind eye."

What did you think of Harry's pic? And how about this new one?
