Fans aren’t feeling Summer Walker’s supermarket fit at all! Walker posted a photo of them wearing a long white dress with open-toe shoes to the grocery store. The Summer Walker white dress look gave the internet a lot to be desired.

Summer Walker got her head protected and a white dress on. That’s how I be dressin too from time. It’s called spiritual protection. Stop being ignorant. White is protection and keeps the spirit light 🤍 pic.twitter.com/KbtohmCReT

Walker’s choice of clothing doesn’t surprise me because they posted about how they missed having an altar in 2019, which is traditionally associated with African Traditional Religions (ATR) such as Santeria, Hoodoo, and Vudun, according to writer Da’Shaun Harrison. Lilith Dorsey also mentioned that people who practice ATR tend to wear white for many reasons including symbolically giving respect to the deity, Obatala, as well as understanding the importance of cleanliness and humility.
Fans and ATR practitioners have been showing solidarity for Summer Walker by posting themselves in white.
I know y’all are posting this hoping to make everyone laugh but we gotta create space for black women to navigate their spiritual practice. this is a african traditional attire for a specific spiritual practice. let’s decide who we wanna tear down and who we wanna uplift

Now whether Walker wore that ensemble for spiritual reasons, to get buzz going about their new single with Lil Durk, or just ‘cause they felt like it, it’s got people talkin’ which is what matters most I guess…
