Fans are not happy with Cameron Dallas, Aaron Carpenter and Chris Gonzalez. The MagCon stars are under fire for cultural appropriation after the three friends all dressed up in Mexican-themed costumes at a Cinco De Mayo party.
"The Three Amigos & Nacho Libre 🔥," Cameron captioned this photo of the friends in costume, which consisted of traditional style suits, sombreros and faux mustaches.
After posting the photo, the Chasing Cameron star received tons of furious comments saying their clothing is extremely insulting to Mexican culture.
"Just because some of you are not offended does not mean you can speak for everyone. This is horrible behavior and it is offensive and people have a right to be upset. Stop exploiting Latinx culture," one fan wrote.
Some fans came to Cameron's defensive, pointing out that his nationality consists of part Mexican.
Another commenter said, "Him saying he's 15% Hispanic is like people saying they are 1/16th Cherokee. It's not a valid reason to be doing what he just did. This is very insulting."
Aside from their clothing, Cameron, Aaron and Chris also spoke with fake accents on Cameron's Instagram Stories.

Cameron, Aaron and Chris were not the only ones in costume. Many others at the gathering were dressed in a similar fashion, from wearing sombreros to ponchos.
"Familia," Chris captioned a photo he shared from the big event.
This isn't the first time boys from the MagCon squad have been dragged for appropriating a certain culture. In fact, a few of them recently debuted hairstyles that caused major controversy. Cameron, Aaron, Jack Johnson and Matthew Espinosa all got matching braided hairstyles, which people said appropriated black culture.
