According to Buzzfeed, his choice to wear a traditional feathered headdress on the July cover of UK edition of “Elle” magazine has angered the Native American community and others to the point that they’re tweeting with the #NotHappy hashtag.


Williams issued a statement saying, “I respect and honor every kind of race, background, and culture. I am genuinely sorry. Meanwhile, “Elle UK” has yet to weigh in on the controversy.
