Bruno Mars is being accused of cultural appropriation

Nearly eight years after his first album was considered innovative for blending different genres of music, Bruno Mars is now being accused of cultural appropriation. 

In an episode of the web series, "The Grapevine," Sersen Sensei says, "Bruno Mars 100 percent is a cultural appropriator, Sensei said in the clip that went viral. "He is not black, at all, and he plays up his racial ambiguity to cross genres." 

 After the clip went viral, many agreed with Sensei's statements on Twitter, but celebrities like Charlie Wilson and Shaun King  came to Mars' defense.
