Catholics Are Crying 'Cultural Appropriation' Over The Met Gala—But The Internet Has The Receipts

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

This year's Met Gala is coming under fire (and brimstone) for its theme, "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination." Some people, like journalist and Celebrity Apprentice winner Piers Morgan, are using the gala's theme to cry cultural appropriation of the Catholic religion.

Twitter user Irma Hinojosa seemed particularly offended. Her Twitter profile says she's Christian but doesn't specify Catholic.
