To Bonnet Or Not To Bonnet

Oscar Award winner Mo’nique has divided the internet by putting out a video via Instagram stating

“yesterday, I was in the airport in Atlanta […] I was excited and as we began to walk through the airport, I saw too many and actually, too many to count and too many for me to ‘tap,’ but I saw so many of our young sisters in head bonnets, scarves, slippers, pajamas, blankets wrapped around them and this is how they’re showing up to the airport…”

She then posed the question “when did we lose pride in representing ourselves? When did we step away of ‘let me make sure I’m presentable when I leave my home?’

Some resonated with her message while other’s had different opinions.

Twitter got in on the debate with users stating “Bonnets and rollers, etc in public are part of HOME training. If somebody in your home/your tribe ain’t think it was important to impart, it ain’t my place as a stranger,” while another wrote, “Told my momma that ppl are defending their right to wear bonnets in public. She was disgusted.”

We want you all to sound off. Are you team bonnet or no bonnet. Let us know in the comments below!
