Disney Stars (& Others) Attend Paul Frank 'PowWow' Mocking Native Americans

Hundreds of offensive photos were uploaded to Paul Frank's Official Facebook page this weekend showcasing the Native American "themed" party or "PowWow celebrating Fashion's Night Out." 

Despite the uproar of disappointment from the Native American community, the Facebook page deleted the photos (much like Drew Barrymore did) and has yet to issue a statement-much like Drew Barrymore did. One Facebook user says, "As a Native American, I want you to understand that I am not a party theme."

Hollywood Reporter tried to make the event seem cute:

"Paul Frank celebrated Fashion’s Night Out with a neon-Native American powwow theme. Glow-in-the-dark war-painted employees in feather headbands and bow and arrows invited guests to be photographed on a mini-runway holding prop tomahawks. Christina Milian stopped in for her swag bag and a quick shoot with a couple of her friends. Extra features: a candy bar and a crafts table where staff handmade initial-studded Paul Frank coin purses on order for guests."
