Well she's apologizing to them so obviously she feels she deserves the criticism.

I don't see the controversy in the link. What was the issue? Seems like a normal picture.

The product is apparently marketed as an "Indio". "Indio" is "Indian" in Spanish and it isn't a particularly flattering term the way it is often used in many Spanish speaking countries. The word doesn't necessarily have to be negative either though. Context matters alot. Basically the people who take the most offense to the product's name are Americans who are ascribing American sensibilities to something that is a bit more complicated in another culture.

Anywho, certain people took feigned offense at her using the "insensitively named" product and "corrected" her. She apologized and then they took offense to her not taking the picture down.

Since she was engaging these people and taking them seriously rather than deleting their comments and blocking them, I'm assuming that she is cool with all this so I wouldn't call it a controversy either.

#3 she also just might be "going along to get along". Just because she complies doesn't necessarily means she's cool with it or should be.

or maybe she is.

Either way, the situation can still exist independent of her reaction

I don't find the product or name racist.

But it IS inaccurate. That product is not an Indian (or native American of you prefer)

That is like me calling my four wheeled vehicle a narwhal.

Yeah! How dare she!

The funny part is that if she had chosen a accepted name for her wrap, like papoose, she would have been accused of cultural appropriation. If she had just called it a blanket, some SJW would have accused her of celebrating the genocide of native peoples using disease-infested blankets. In SJW-world, you can't win.

#3 Ah! Thank you.

Definitely a ridiculous issue in my eyes.

Don't stereotype people like that. I know plenty of conservatives who aren't racist, and some liberals who are.

Or a Bronco, or a Mustang, or a Stingray, or a Barracuda, or....

Wow, what a sensitive world. And most of those responding are young girls.

A non issue. She could have just ignored them.
