Drew Barrymore Flashes Peace Sign While Wearing 'War Bonnet'

ICTMN Staff
2/1/12
A photo of actress Drew Barrymore wearing a feather headdress and a Budweiser T-shirt has surfaced on the internet. Barrymore seems to be having a good time in the picture, flashing a peace sign and laughing, but American Indians aren't quite so happy with the image.
Adrienne K. of Native Appropriations confesses she thought Drew was a "cool chick," which perhaps makes this image that much harder to take. "Not only do you give us the stereotypical war bonnet," she writes, "you give us an association of Indians with alcohol, which is probably right up there with the worst possible stereotypes of Native people in the world ever. Nice work."
The image is watermarked "Flower Films," which is Barrymore's production company (responsible for Donnie Darko, 50 First Dates, Whip It, and the Charlie's Angels movie franchise). Is this a scene from an upcoming Flower Films release?

She's an airhead folks? Ever see her interviews? She's high or drunk sometimes. When she's elected President of this country, like former president Bush Jr. was, then we have a problem.

Ideally, she'd be hit in the face with a custard pie! Like I said, one celeb does it; (read, Guiliana Rancic, saying "injin" on national tv); someone follows, (Heidi Klum, demeaning a historic native american woman, Pocahontas, for her own personal agenda), and now, a not-so-talented actress, playing a YMCA Indian. It will continue, because no one raises a fuss. People justify such behavior by saying we are "too sensitive". All the while, they know they wouldn't dare make fun of other ethnics. Such people need a custard pie thrown in their face! JMO!
