Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez has got into trouble due to a post she shared and has been slammed and accused of appropriating black culture.

Lopez took to her social media accounts to share a couple of selfies of herself wearing a shirt bearing the words "Bronx Girl Magic".

Just as people might have known already, the name might be inspired by the Black Girl Magic movement, which was born as a way to celebrate "the beauty, power and resilience of Black women."

However it did not go down well with social media users.

"I hate how people act so shocked and offended when I say I'm not a fan of Jlo because as a Latina, I'm supposed to idolize her or something. Black women can't have s**t lol the f**k is bronx girl magic?" one said.

Another commented: "Jennifer Lopez culture appropriating a** really out here wearing a shirt that says Bronx Girl Magic."

Calling J.Lo a "fool," a user wrote: "That fool really said Bronx girl magic & watch her play stupid like she did when she tweeted ALM smh we really can't have anything."

In other news, E Online reported that the singer's "bling cup" was reportedly stolen. Featuring in a new ad for Hard Rock, the 'Jenny From The Block' star can be seen preparing for her Super Bowl half time performance before realising that her prized possession was stolen.
